San Jose, Calif. (June 26, 2008) - San Jose-based online game publisher, (, run by OnNet USA), announced today that it will launch the Hurricane Cup, a series of four Shot-Online golf tournaments, this July. The tournaments will

The Hurricane Cup is a championship where players participate in online golf tournaments to earn points. Points are awarded to the top ten players of each of the four tournaments, and then combined at the end of the fourth tournament to determine the overall winner from the series. The top three players of the Hurricane Cup will win a sponsorship deal from Hurricane that gives them a full set of non-repairable clubs and the first-place winner will receive a full set of repairable Hurricane golf clubs. Each tournament purse will also include in-game currency, GamesCampus cash, and other in-game items as prizes.

Like real life golf tournaments, each of the four tournaments will run weekly and last four days (Thursday through Sunday). The first in the series will commence on July 03, 2008 and run through July 06, 2008. The subsequent tournaments will be scheduled as follows: Tournament 2: July 10, 2008 through July 13, 2008; Tournament 3: July 17, 2008 through July 20, 2008 and Tournament 4: July 17, 2008 through July 20, 2008. The Hurricane Cup invites anyone from newbies to experienced players to participate, as long as they make the cut!
