    The Virtual U.S. Amateur is Back!

    We’re excited to announce the second annual Virtual U.S. Amateur this month on Pinehurst No. 2, in collaboration with the USGA, and it’s bigger and better.

    The Qualifier tournament kicks off 8/1, with players competing in the unlimited stroke play tournament to post their best scores by 8/18 – the same day the real U.S. Amateur tournament concludes. 

    The top 64 scores from the Qualifier will move on to a head-to-head Bracket tournament, with the final four players (the winner of each bracket) winning a trip to Topgolf Las Vegas to compete in a live final round. 

    In case you missed the action from last year at Topgolf Atlanta, you can catch up here.

    The final round of semifinal and championship matches in Las Vegas will be played live and streamed so the community can follow along and cheer on their favorites as they compete for new, exclusive prizes and the title of 2019 Virtual U.S. Amateur Champion.
