Tour Champion is by invitation only from WGT.
Unless you win Ready Go Tourneys, a Match Play against a higher Tier player, or a WGT credit Tournament; you need a certain
minimum number of rounds played before you can move up to a higher Tier. The minimum number of rounds needed is commonly known as “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

However, as Tour Champion is by invitation only, saturation in this case only
applies to WGT’s computation of your average
If you win a Ready-Go, WGT credit Tournament 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 for at least Match Play wins 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
