  • NASAgolfer is the Virtual U.S. Open 2009 Champion!

    24 Jun 2009

    Congratulations to Wayne Stopak, AKA NASAgolfer, who has been crowned the winner of the Virtual U.S. Open 2009. He shot a 66 to clinch the title, beating out over 200 players in the final round. More than 187,000 players entered the qualifying rounds with 234 making the cut at even par, 70. The top score of the qualifying round was played by AvatarLee with a 61. The toughest holes of the championship round proved to be 5 and 15 which received more double bogeys than any other.

    The pressure was definitely felt by all who made the qualifying cut. Runner-up Bart6961 said, “I thought I was going to give NASA a run for it with -4 after the first 6 holes, but the pressure got to me.” Nivlac and ncviz made impressive showings and took early leads, but in the end it was NASAgolfer who played the game of his life.

    Along with the title, Wayne received an invitation to be a guest of the USGA at the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Click here to see the leaderboard, and check out his winning scorecard:

    Thanks to everyone who participated!
