Hi Jack do you have an update on this subject . Since the introduction of tour Champion .
my average had been going down slowly as you described for some time ,however since the new teir was introduced my av suddenly has shot up cheeers old tupp
It's a little hazy because WGT has been somewhat obscure.
Best I can figure out:
Saturation point for TL to Champ has been moved from 200 to 500 rounds. That's why some TL's are seeing their average move up. No grandfathering; some TL averages have moved up in BD. It's still easier to get from TL to Champ than from Legend to TL.
Champ to TC: Hazier here, but, I have been told there are different criteria for Champ to TC depending on whether you were a Champ for a (not specified) period of time before December update. So maybe a different saturation number depending on when one became a Champ.
BD had 2 Champs in club with average under 55 who were promoted up to TC. Two with averages 55-56 and 1 with average 56-57 who have not been. All had plenty of rounds. That points to a 55.00 average for TC.
As a Champ since 1/1/2018, with over 500 eligible rounds in, I had no uptick in average since the update. I have also dropped my average by 0.2 in last 6 weeks without playing any rounds off of easy tees. That indicates to me I am being averaged across 200 rounds.
I know this isn't model of clarity, but it's the best I know.
P.S. Switching me to a 500 round average should have moved my average up as soon as I played another round.
