    That's saturation!

    The margin of 28 = 56 towards your average of 57.12 isn't too big - only the elimination of former, higher scores explains the avalanche!

    OTOH, I'm afraid to say that 28s won't make you a TC @55.000 average. More grinding for lower scores will be necessary :(

    Probably your 52 replaced a 60.

    (57.12 x 200 -8 /200= 57.08)

    It'll get a bit slower as the higher scores that are included get used up.

    No, although I'm afraid it seems I was wrong with my numbers as I was thinking about TC saturation being 200 rounds it sounds like Champion saturation is 750 rounds.

    Your average is the total number of strokes included divided by the number of rounds included, 750 rounds at champion it seems. In a saturated average the worst score included is replaced by any score lower than it.

    So your average at 57.12 was for around 42,840 strokes in the 750 rounds.  It then went to 57.08 with a 52 which is 42,810 strokes suggesting it replaced a 82. 

    (57.12 x 750 -30 /200= 57.08)

    I don't imagine you have many scores around 82 included so it will quickly get harder to drop your average.  Eventually only 54's or 55's will help.

    Unless I've got something wrong again :-/

    Getting to TC isn't the be all and end all.  I know a WGT member, a Champ, who played nothing but easy tees for 6 months and got to TC.  What's the point except to hang a badge on your name?

    I can give him 2 strokes I'll beat him in match play every time.  So his TC badge doesn't mean much to me.  fmagnets, birchi, and several others I know, that is different.

    It might take me 2 years longer, but I prefer to get there the normal way.  And, if and when I do, I might be able to compete with the real top players.  I like to think my game is still improving.  But there is no reason to be a TC before I'm good enough to compete with those guys.

    (With respect to averages, it's 55.00 for TC, 500 rounds minimum except some got grand-fathered on 200 rounds before last rules change.  That said, WGT has always reserved right to advance players more quickly on unspecified criteria … like winning too many WGT tournaments, for example.)

    Tom.

    I could not agree with this more.  I may never get past Legend, but that is fine with me if my game does not get good enough to do so.  It was a big enough shock when I tiered up last time and I am not ready for higher competition - yet!
