WGT player poldimaier (Germany) has won the second major of the WGT Virtual Tour, the Transamerica Championship held on The Olympic Club.
It looks like poldimaier is on a roll this summer, being recently crowned the 2014 Virtual U.S. Open champion, and now a Virtual Tour major winner. He led the Tour Legend field by 4 strokes, with ladyluck87 (108) finishing second and jmoney2224, fmagnets and BolloxInBruges (109) all tied for third. The Aphrodite Country Club had an impressive showing as well, with 3 of its members in the top 10 of the Tour Legend tier, including the top 2 spots.
Congratulations to all the winners of the Transamerica Championship who win their share of the huge 400,000 WGT Credit purse.

WGT players should be sure to compete in the Virtual Tour every month, so they accumulate Virtual Tour credits and qualify for the December Championship. This month's event in August is The First Tee Open held on Bethpage Black, host of the 2009 U.S. Open. Bethpage is one of the more challenging golf courses on WGT, it's a long course with thick rough and mostly raised greens, putting a premium on power, accuracy and course management.
WGT is very proud to work with The First Tee, one of the truly great charities in golf, teaching life skills thru golf, as they have reached over nine million kids and counting.
