    I see that invitations are being granted to Tour Champion today!  

    Congratulations to all that received the invitation!!

    Including yourself, as you can see now. LOL

    Apparently under 55 average is the start (don't know how RRs are factored in) and I'm speculating the default green speed is going to be 14. The WC intro has them.  The move isn't made until a RR is posted and the saturation bit starts all over. Details are slowly leaking out based on what players are seeing.  :-)

    Must have missed my invite or I accepted and forgot.  So instead of elite players it's now to be the likes of me as well.

    I reckon the RR's will be 200, or more, as that's where Champ saturation happens.  I'm not sure it has to be a ranked round for the move, mine was an uel game that didn't have an affect on my average, but yes a round needs to be played.

    On the GS I think it may be 13, I set up a RR at Chambers and that's what it gave me.

    Not so sure on that YJ . If you look in the Players community you will see avgs. as high as 72 so not sure how they are going about selection . So for the most part avgs. are ranging from 45 and up .

    So, for those who qualify, the first round played triggers tiering up and resetting the average. 

    Exactly. Saturation starts all over unless.....how cool would it be if saturation wasn't a factor in that tier? Now that would be some serious nice.  :-)

    WGTChampion:

    Welcome to Wolf Creek everyone! We have spent a countless number of hours making the course and are so excited that you're finally able to play and enjoy it. 

    We also opened the Tour Champion tier. A new tier achievable with ranked rounds and a low average. This is different than we originally detailed the tier years ago. It is no longer an invite-only tier. Which brings me to my announcement. 

    It's with great pleasure that I get to announce that we have a new elite class called Hall of Fame. This classification will only be given to the best of the best in WGT. 

    We did not want to section Hall of Fame off from the rest of the world, so Hall of Fame players will still play in Tour Champion tier games. We are still defining exactly how we're going to start awarding Hall of Fame to players, but we will have all that sorted out when we start to move select players to Hall of Fame sometime in 2019. 

    This morning players were welcomed to a new Wolf Creek tiered tourney. We didn't expect players to move so quickly into Tour Champion, so there was not a Tour Champion tier to play for in that tournament. Anyway, I made a second tournament for those folks. 

    The original Welcome to Wolf Creek tournament

    And For Tour Champion players, congratulations! Play here!

    Additionally I just launched a number of Wolf Creek Ready Go tourneys and will have an Uneven Lies version up shortly.

    That would be nice. 

    Of course, I'll never need to worry about it. :-) 

    Averages start all over!!  One TC managed an average of 180.00................

    If you look at all of us who have been moved to Tour Champion you will see that most of us have much higher averages than before.   It appears that the saturation factor goes away and something else is used.

    It looks strange now with many TC having higher averages than lower tiers but I assume it will sort itself out soon.

    Will
