Shot-Online Professional Tournament Launching.

(Sunnyvale, CA � February 07, 2006) � Not content just to reward competitive online golfers with virtual golf clubs, in-game currency in their tournaments, OnNet USA Inc. is taking Shot-Online to the next level. Almost $2,000 in total cash prizes will be offered for the top four finishers every time through the First Shot-Online Professional Tournament, a new bi-monthly recurring tournament.

The first of the Shot-Online Professional Tournaments will begin February 17 at 12:00 AM to February 20 at 12:00 AM (CST). Since this tournament will only be open to players of semi-pro rank or higher, the course where the tournament will be played upon is the demanding �Abel Plena� course and the entry fee for one try is 1,000,000 NG (Shot-Online�s in-game currency). To add to the challenge, players will only be permitted to swing their golf club in-game once per stroke, without a practice shot. Players may enter only with their highest-level character within their account, and can enter only twice. The best score taken from all scores will be entered into the final tallies.

The tournament prize structure is as follows:

1st Place � $1,000
2nd Place � $500
3rd Place � $200
4th Place � $100
5th Place to 10th Place � 5,000 in cyber-cash
