• Real-Time Scoring – Fans can follow their favorite players and keep up with the latest news, photos and videos. The Desktop Leaderboard also allows fans a way to keep track of the action while getting other things done on their computer.
• Interactive Course Section – Along with watching HD flyovers and video walkthroughs explaining how each hole is set up, fans will be able to view multiple images of each hole and even play the hole on their computer via the new Virtual U.S. Open online golf game. American Express® Cardmembers will have exclusive access to listen to and watch 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk share his personal insights into this dynamic golf course.
• Virtual U.S. Open – Fans can test their golf skills online in qualifying rounds for the Virtual U.S. Open Championship through June 21. The top 156 qualifiers plus ties will then square off for the Virtual U.S. Open title on June 22. The winner will be crowned the USGA Virtual U.S. Open champion and will be a guest of the USGA at the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, Calif. Players registering can purchase credits in the virtual World Golf Tour pro shop and receive double points when they use an American Express Card. These points can be redeemed for different equipment that might give players a better chance of improving their score and qualifying for the Virtual U.S. Open.
