    55 is the correct number.

    Yup, 0,22 to go... ;-)

    -Tour Champion is an invite only tier after Champion and will require quite a lot of playing to get to.

    The Tour Champion Tier is NO LONGER invite only.

      You may be right about the average being 55 rather than 57 . But one wouldn't know that with out an invitation .

    From one hole to another, that was true when written (2015) but go back far enough and you'll find a post telling you master is the top tier.  The invitational tier is now Hall of Fame, although they dress that up a little.

    220 strokes, you'll make it by the end of next month.  It'd be a lot sooner if they stopped showing your opponents bracket scores ;-))

    Bwahahaha, only just seen this. True, but saving 85 - 90 credits over 18 holes makes the wait less painful... ;-)

    My average is still 60+, got 'promoted' from Legend to Tour Legend a short while ago.

    Your average as a TL is 60.40, the average resets at each tier.

    This 

    05.26.21 Legend St. Andrews B9 Ready Go Back 9 Legend 29

    may be what got you promoted, if not it was the prize you won for being runner-up in the bracket immediately after.  I'd guess the 58 was more likely.

      Yes . once one reaches the average for each tier .

      Their average becomes based on the score(s) of the next 1 , 2 , 3 ranked rounds one plays . Not exactly sure they have divulged the exact number of rounds .

      Unless you are on a roll . The new tier conditions , more times than not will assure you a slightly to majorly higher scores right away . Often one has a really bad streak and That TL's long earned 58 becomes a 72 in the blink of an eye . But you stay a TL even if it balloons to 80 or 90 . ( extreme examples .)

    Sorry, my turn to miss a post for ages. 

    A more serious point, that must make gaining credits in brackets very difficult.

    Take the100c 18 hole.  First round -190, second -280, semi -82, finish second +404 and win +980.  So using fairly expensive balls only the finalists gain, I see why you play free balls when you can.  Better on the 9 hole and 200c of course but maybe tougher opponents.
