(WSGF) World Series of Golf Return on Investment Potential to Be Presented in Webcast Monday, May 10th

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - May 6, 2010) -  World Series of Golf, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WSGF) (OTCQB: WSGF) today announced a Webcast scheduled for Monday, May 10th, to present an overview of the anticipated return on investment potential that could be realized from an investment in World Series stock. World Series is an early stage business with a high growth business plan in the Gaming and Entertainment industry. Such early stage business strategies within rapidly expanding industries can produce attractive returns for investors. However, small business or early stage investing, particularly in over-the-counter listed companies is significantly different than investing in big businesses listed on national exchanges such as the NYSE Euronext. The Monday presentation is intended to provide interested investors insight into World Series' anticipated performance over the next 18 months and how that performance might be translated into an attractive return as a result of an investment in World Series stock.

The presentation on Monday will be conducted by The Small Equity Initiative (SEI). SEI is a not-for-profit organization established by the founders of NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) (OTCQB: NWMT) and China Crescent Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: CCTR) to coordinate education, advocacy and activism to improve the capital markets for both small business entrepreneurs and investors. The presentation will also include more detail from SEI on investing strategies specific to small, start-up and early stage businesses listed on the over-the-counter markets. A link to the Webcast will be published at www.smallequity.com upon release on Monday and emailed to the SEI opt-in database. To sign up to receive SEI updates, go to www.smallequity.com to register.

The following is a brief overview of the SEI perspective on small business investing:

Small business investing is significantly different than big business investing, but the industry experts, analysts, investment and commercial bankers put a big business assessment template on the small business sector. That big business template distorts the fact that the small business sector is the biggest contributor to global employment and gross domestic product and that somewhere within that employment and gross domestic contribution is probably a good, if not great, return on investment opportunity.

Most small businesses do not sustain operations beyond three years. Keep in mind however, that the small business sector accounts for the majority of global employment and the majority of the global gross domestic product. What does that tell you? It tells you that entrepreneurs don't just start one business in their life time, but multiple businesses. As one small business reaches the end of its lifecycle, the founding entrepreneur starts a new business and probably hires many of the same employees working as his last business. To realize a return on a small business investment, the investment horizon should likely be less than the three year statistical life expectancy of most small businesses. While most small businesses will not sustain beyond three years, many will at least realize some profitable milestones achievements within their three year lifecycle that have the potential to deliver a return to the investors that funded the start-up or one of the initiatives that led to a milestone achievement following the start-up.
