    Good luck!  I hope that's in a VM.

    No, it's not in a VM Sam. This is an upgrade from Microsoft, not a leaked copy from an unknown source. But you have to be part of Windows Insider program to get it.

    The install went smoothly though (1hr 40min), an I have to say I like it. Everything seems to be a bit more spaced out, for touch screen users I am guessing, and that suits me better now my eyes are getting older.

    Hi Scott,

    Any info on the following; bam.nr-data.net ?

    Keeps popping up as I refresh/load webpage - specifically here on the forums. Only really noticed it whilst trying to solve the issues mentioned below. For all I know it may well have nothing to do with what I'm experiencing re the actual gameplay.

    Asking as I keep getting 'Resolving shot' and very slow loading issues whilst trying to play a round, be it multi-player or solo. Started fairly recently.

    I've already used your script for resetting game to no avail.

    Windows10 and Edge browser user BTW.

    Yup it does help. Been seeing that a lot past week or so... more to follow...

    Bingo!

    I powered my router/hub off completely earlier this morning and back on a minute later (also updated the Edge browser manually) and apart from my first hole played about an hour or so ago things - for now - seem to be working fine.

    Whether it'll last who knows.

    Thanks all for the input and confirmation it wasn't just myself seeing the issues.

    Cheers folks.

    👍

    Tiers and Averages

     EasyEdward:

    What average do you need to Tier up, how many rounds do you need, and what is the effect of winning a Ready-Go or Match Play on your Average?

    PROGRESSION AVERAGE RANKED ROUNDS
      Hack   >    Amateur   ≤ 100.00     5
      Amateur   >   Pro   ≤  80.00   10
      Pro   >   Tour Pro   ≤  72.00   20
      Tour Pro   >   Master   ≤  67.00   25
      Master   >   Tour Master   ≤  63.00   40
      Tour Master   >   Legend   ≤  61.00   50
      Legend   >   Tour Legend   ≤  60.00   500
      Tour Legend     >   Champion   ≤  59.00   750
      Champion   >   Tour Champion     ≤  55.00   1000
    ≤ less than or equal to
    BUT

    Unless you win Ready Go Tourneys you need a certain minimum number of rounds played before you can move up to a higher Tier. This is commonly known as saturation. Rounds played on a Par 3 course, Par 5 course or any custom course do not count toward "saturation". Once saturation is reached WGT calculates your average based on the best rounds you have played in your current Tier. Both the minimum to get to saturation and how many rounds your average is based on is:

    HOWEVER

    If you win a Ready-Go or a Match Play against a higher tiered player your average will drop. Typically the drop is between 1 and 2 strokes. The exact formula WGT uses is unknown but it appears that 40 to 50 strokes are deducted from the total number of strokes you have played in your current Tier as a bonus for your win.

    This bonus no longer applies once you reach Legend Tier and do not carry over once you move up a Tier.

    These bonus strokes fade over time. Specifically, based on observation it appears that upon saturation two bonus strokes are lost every time you score lower than your highest score WGT still has recorded as your best for your current Tier.

    Edited quote. Thank you EdwardSimon.

    As email responses to subscribed threads are still not working, I'm just looking at RSS feeds. If you look at the bottom of each thread page you'll see an RSS Available button.

    I'm sure I used to have an RSS feed reader in my email application in Windows 7, but I never really took much notice of it.

    So this is just a test to see if this post pops up in my Chrome feed reader!? Fingers crossed.
