(WSGF) World Series of Golf Announces Greenfield OTC Investment Strategy Tutorial for Investors and Entrepreneurs

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - World Series of Golf, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WSGF) (OTCQB: WSGF) today announced a Webcast scheduled for release Thursday, February 17th hosted by the NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NWMT) (OTCQB: NWMT) Greenfield Partnership Program to present an over-the-counter market investment strategy tutorial. The Webcast is targeted at both novice and advanced OTC investors as well as entrepreneurs seeking growth capital from the OTC Private Investment in Pubic Equity (PIPE) market.

"The good news for OTC investors should be that average share prices are up according to OTCBB statistics," said Philip Verges founder of the Greenfield Partnership Program. "However, I would not suggest an investment strategy based on an OTCBB increasing price per share trend. While the average OTCBB price per share increased approximately 35% in 2010 compared to 2009, the number of securities traded on the OTCBB decreased by almost 30%. The number of market makers per OTCBB security is down 67% from January 2010 to January 2011. The number of total positions held in OTCBB securities is down 72%. Nevertheless, total share volume and dollar volume is up. The OTC environment is changing dramatically. Both OTC investors and entrepreneurial management teams need to review the changing OTC landscape and correspondingly update their go to market strategies."

The Greenfield Partnership Program was launched more than a year ago to support entrepreneurial, high growth companies in achieving their operational and business objectives. The program has expanded to include eight public and private companies and anticipates an even more rapid expansion of member companies in 2011. The Greenfield Partnership Program has been instrumental in assisting member companies with fundraising and market penetration.

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 it looks to develop online, gaming console and freestanding kiosk gaming options.
