World Golf Tour continues to grow
October 10, 2011

World Golf Tour (WGT), the most realistic virtual golf game, today announced that it has passed the 100 million mark in total rounds of virtual golf played. Since launching in October 2008, WGT.com has become one of the largest golf sites in the world. Currently WGT.com has more than 1 million monthly unique visitors that are playing over 5 million rounds per month, and continuing to grow rapidly.

“Our authentic approach to virtual golf is what has propelled us past the 100 million round mark and is what’s attracting more golfers and more sponsors to our game”

WGT players, most of whom are also real-world golfers, spend over 30 minutes per session playing golf online. With such long play-time, WGT currently delivers over 100 million online ad impressions per month to sponsors wanting to reach a highly-engaged golf audience.

“Our authentic approach to virtual golf is what has propelled us past the 100 million round mark and is what’s attracting more golfers and more sponsors to our game,” commented YuChiang Cheng, founder and CEO, World Golf Tour.

WGT celebrated this special milestone by giving the four players who played together in the 100 millionth round each 10,000 WGT credits for them to use on upgraded virtual golf equipment and entering tournaments.
