    Just to reiterate custom courses and par three and fives don’t count as ranked for tier progress

    After a preface that only stroke play rounds may be ranked, we have to split this statement about play on CC Custom courses, Par3s and Par5s:

    1) These may be ranked stroke play rounds (unless practice), thus showing in the scoring history.

    2) At the same time, they do not count towards the average, towards saturation and towards the tiering process.

    Yes, Alosso , you have always posted this very clearly .

    I think part of the ongoing confusion is the stats that we have on our profile pages , that don’t differentiate the rounds played that count as ranked rounds from those that count towards tier and ave.

      Let's also not fail to mention these other 2 popular formats .

    Single Play Stroke Tournaments 

      and

    Stroke Bracket Tournaments 

      Are both ranked . And also do effect ones average .

    You cannot say it this way, I'm afraid.

    It depends on the venue. Both tournaments may be on a Par3 (in effect, brackets often are) and NOT affect the average.

    pdb1:
      Many non saturated players will avoid these tournaments . As 1 bad round that a dedicated entrant would not WithDrawl from . Could set them back a bit .
    Players with such mindset haven't thought it through, since a "bad" score would be dropped from the average, sooner or later. The setback is only the minutes they finalized it, and they are rewarded with practice and experience.

    pdb1:
      The WD would also count against game completion % .
    No it would not, as this is solo play.
