These requirements are incorrect as I advanced from master to tour master in 1 month. I only played 1 18 hole ranked round by myself. Shot a 63. Then played PvP matches and obtained tour master status after beating an amateur for an 18k game
Which many people do not know . Is the Secret Super Bonus . That is available to players to utilize .
In every tier . Through the level of Tour Master . And stopping there at Legend Tier .
There is a very beneficial reason to play Match Play rounds . And is the only way that they an be played so that a Match Play round will count toward ones average . Other than this . Match Play rounds are not ranked and do not count for anything . Not even stats .
This method would be simply . That any tier player can invite challenge and play in a scored match play match . A tier higher than their own . Must be higher to count .
When the lower tier beats the higher tier . There is an automatic Super Bonus of up to 2 or 3 points and as low as .05 I think . Depending on the tier difference and margin of the win . That will automatically and immediately subtract from the lower tiers average . A substantial drop . That would have normally taken as much as 50 to 100 stroke play rounds to achieve .
It is the fastest way to tier up in WGT . Many people utilize this . A player can easily tier up to fast for their own good .
A female friend of mine just used that method a few months ago . Just as she was telling me that she wishes that she had gone slower so her equipment would match her tier . WGT felt that she had advanced too fast and disabled her . At least that is what she and i concluded . As she said there had been no correspondence .
But most wouldn't have to worry about that . In am sure the guys she played . Let her win most of them . Causing her to tier up faster than her Level .
I used it quite a bit . Didn't hurt me .Played another 4000 RR's . Though . lol .
Which brings up an argument that I have had . 3 different times with 3 different Champions lately . Playing in rounds together .
Because I ask them how they are at Champion Tier with 1200 , 1500 ranked rounds . They say . All you have to do is score a -4 and you will be a Champion in no time . And i say . Not in WGT . I get -4's everyday all day long and my average has only moved ,05 in 17 months . I definitely need - 6's to move mine .
I don't know what the real answer for them was . I never get it . But something is up . Because I am obviously way better than they are . I win handily . And i can't putt . But neither can they or drive .
I just don't get it .
Because these guys aren't good enough to get -6's on a consistent basis . If ever .
