You can play the course as many times as you'd like throughout the month of May to get the best score possible. When the virtual Championship is completed on May 31, the top 70 combined scores in each Pro-Tour Champion tier will split the 200,000 credit total purse prize.

This is open to all WGT players and you can see the complete rules for more details here.
