A full season of play on the WGT Virtual Tour all comes down to this.

The best in the world have qualified for the season-ending Virtual Tour Championship, where the top 70 players in each tier will split the record 5 million WGT-credit purse. Round 1 action is already in the books, and tinybo has taken an early advantage in the Tour Legend tier after an opening-round 52 at Kiawah's Ocean Course.

The competition is fierce, though: six players sit just one shot off the pace after one round, while another 13 Tour Legend players opened play with a 54 to sit two shots off the lead.

Other tier leaders after the first round include:

  • Legend: MyCorona, 54
  • Tour Master: shagadelic and onthegrind, 56
  • Master: borondon, SwenCaserio, DelaPoutine and geeberwocky, 58
  • Tour Pro: jmbeanball and mulligan46, 55
  • Pro: BigBlockVettes, 57

Now things start to heat up. While players had unlimited attempts at Round 1 on the Ocean Course, they only get one chance to play Pinehurst No. 2 in more challenging conditions during Round 2. Those rounds must be completed by Dec. 8, with the top four players from the Tour Legend tier advancing to a final round from Dec. 11-14 on a brand new WGT course, with another 5 million credits up for grabs.
