LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 29, 2010) - World Series of Golf, Inc. (
CEO to Present on Recent Patent and Plans for 2011 Early Next Year
World Series of Golf has scheduled an on-demand Webcast for January 6, 2011 to present more details on the Company's recent patent assignment and plans to diversify the Company's business offerings in 2011. World Series of Golf introduced an updated business plan earlier this year enabled by a strategic investment introduced through NewMarket's Greenfield Partnership Program. The new plan includes a continuation of the Company's past golf tournaments that combine the wagering format of Texas Hold 'Em and the skill of golf. Past World Series of Golf events have attracted celebrity players including Ray Romano, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and others. World Series of Golf® is a fully-reporting and audited company compliant and current with all regulations required to support transparency standards. To support the updated business plan, the Company has recently entered into a strategic investment arrangement anticipated to infuse $1,446,500 over time.
On November 30, 2010, the United States Patent Office assigned to the World Series of Golf Patent Number 7,841,933 for the method of conducting sports tournaments with wagering, including virtually and online. The Company is currently exploring various gaming options with top game developers, as we look to develop online, gaming console and freestanding kiosk gaming options. The explosion of motion-based gaming is a particularly good fit for our game and newly issued patent. The Company is continuing to pursue additional claims it has pending with patent office, which the Company and its patent counsel are optimistic about being successful.
A link to the Webcast will be made available upon release.
