Over the weekend, Round 1 of the Transamerica Championship closed and Round 2 kicked off thru July 31, with some big names already posting final scores.
This July stop on the WGT Virtual Tour is the second major of the year, with players competing on Olympic Club for their share of the extra-large 400,000 WGT credit purse. Majors like this are especially valuable to players, as the credits they earn also count toward the season-long standings to determine qualifiers for the Virtual Tour Championship in December, which will boast a record purse of one million credits.
Early into the single-play second round, a familiar name currently leads the Tour Legend tier – WGT veteran poldimaier, recently crowned the 2014 Virtual U.S. Open champion, who finished with a cumulative total of 104. That put him four shots clear of ladyluck87 (108) and five ahead of jmoney2224 and fmagnets (109), with pb1711 (111) still in the mix. Several top players remain within striking distance, including LyonWoulds and sebicu (53) and AllyKennedy, xfpro and dansamcam (54) after just one round.
