Virtual Golf Is Golden

Head to just about any Chicago sports bar or neighborhood pub and you're sure to spot one of the city's hottest sporting venues: Golden Tee golf.

"It's a track-ball-operated game. You pull it back you push it forward. It kind of mimics a golf swing," says Jay McDonald. "It's a simple game to learn, but it's hard to master."

Like an old-fashioned pool shark, McDonald has parlayed his video golf skill into somewhat of a paid profession.

"Overall, I've made about 15 to 20,000 bucks on Golden Tee in the last two years," he says.

A total of 74 of the country's top players will make it to April's national tournament in Las Vegas. McDonald is currently ranked in the top 200.
