  • Dansamcam Captures Third WGT Virtual Tour Victory

    02 May 2014

    Scores have been posted and the results are in for the Glenmorangie Cup on the 2014 Virtual Tour.

    In the Tour Legend tier several well-known WGT players were in contention, but in the end, dansamcam (USA) thrived under the pressure of a single-play final round. dansamcam carded impressive rounds of 53 and 55 for 108 to capture his third WGT Virtual Tour victory, and regain the lead over frenchconnect (USA) in the overall season standings. dansamcam edged out poldimaier (GER) and ujjbnjk (SWE) who both posted rounds of 53 and 57 for 110.

    After winning three out of the four first Virtual Tour events, the big question is which other Tour Legends can keep up with dansamcam in both the monthly events and the overall season standings? Also, dansamcam now has the distinction of being the "Best WGT Player Without a Major" having only lost the GolfNow Championship Major in March to frenchconnect. But with seven events left in the 2014 Virtual Tour season, including 3 more Majors with larger credit purses, there's still plenty of golf to play.

    Congratulations to all the winners in the Glenmorangie Cup...
