The Augusta Open
Test yourself on the course like never before. The 2016 Masters Tournament is right around the corner, and for the first time, you can test yourself against the Pros. WorldwideVirtualGolf.com offers users the power to play against anyone in the world, at any time, from any course, so why not play in the first Major of the year from your local club? The Augusta Open (what we call the Masters Tournament) is a “just-for-fun” tournament that allows you to compete head-to-head against the Pros, no matter when or where you play your round(s).
So sign up, tee off, and make sure you play your best game possible. Players’ scores only receive a small boost over the Pros, so don’t count on your adjusted WVG score to put you on top. Every shot counts, just like at Augusta National. The pressure is on.
How The Tournament Works
Once you sign up for the Augusta Open on the Tournaments page, you’ll be able to enter your golf rounds on the Scores page. The Augusta Open, just like it’s Georgian counterpart, is four days long. However, it’s up to you when and where you play, and even how many rounds you play. You can play a round of golf today, tomorrow, or any other day before the Masters Tournament ends. You can play on your local course, or at Augusta National itself. You don’t even have to play all four rounds, just enter your most recent score for each remaining day. But if you’re only going to play one round, it better be good! To make things more competitive, you will receive a small boost to your score (the Pros are pros for a reason!), but the Pros scores will be what you see on TV.
As the Pros get started in Georgia, their scores will be updated each day. On Thursday, your name will be placed on our Score Board, and the Pro’s scores and your position will be updated throughout play. After the last putt on Sunday, you’ll be able to see your final position in the tournament!
