Don't be alarmed... WGT player FRIENDofyourWIFE wins the Golf Advisor Championship in the Tour Legend tier of the WGT Virtual Tour.
Tour Legend FRIENDofyourWIFE captures his first WGT Virtual Tour title in the November Golf Advisor Championship -- a big one, given that this was the final major tournament of the season, shooting a final score of 112 on Pinehurst No. 2 to win the multi-player tie-breaker.
The top 70 scores in each tier of the Virtual Tour tournament have all earned a share of the 400,000 WGT Credit purse this month, adding to their overall Season Leaderboard standing to qualify for the Virtual Tour Championship, starting tomorrow, with a record one million credit purse.
Congratulations to WaLk0fLiFe, Funkyjunkie3000, nikic123 and fmagnets on their second place standing among the top Tour Legends.
