    TarheelsRule:
    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.

    Every time a player tiers up, the player's average resets. At this point, we don't know if players will saturate at TC tier. Most likely they will. Nevertheless, everyone has (at most) a handful of rounds at their new tier.

    We'll only find out if there is a saturation point when players stop seeing their averages fluctuate (i.e. going up or down). Also, if there is a saturation point, it's reasonable to assume it's at least 200 rounds.

    For champion tier, saturation has always been 200 rounds. I'm guessing that's the criteria: average of 55.00 or lower and saturation at champion tier (200 rounds).

    Regardless, WGT is never going to confirm this. They've never explicitly confirmed what it takes to tier up for any tier.

    my new acc wgt started me as champion as before but my avg started at 150....i have had 96 ranked rounds.....i believe it saturated at around 90 rounds......now it moves by around 0.4 if i shoot 7 under over 9 holes......would this be classed as saturated

    Hmmm.  A 58.84 avg over 96 RR would yield about 5649 total points (shots).  Adding a half round at 7 under would be approx 5677 points for 96.5 RR - or an average of 58.82.  That assumes a Par 70 for the total 180 hole round.  

    We need alosso to check in here with the math!!

    For Champion tier, saturation is 200 ranked rounds that count for average. By the way, I believe par 3s and par 5s are included in your total ranked rounds played in your stats, but they are not included in average calculation. 

    What that means is you need to keep track of the rounds you play that count for average. You cannot simply rely on the total in your stats, even though those stats (for you) are only from Champion tier.
