can someone please explain how TOUR LEGEND works ? and how u qualify, im still seeing WGT's best players still in legend tier and not the new one in tour legend, WHY ???????, here are just some names and these are probably THE BEST HERE, >> bolloxinbruges / mrenn / genorb / preistess / jimbeam, just to name a few, a couple of those names have won the most amount of prizemoney here well over 10,000 dollars worth, and there still just a legend ? hmmmm there averages are also lower than the current people in tour legend tier, so im really confused.
Some of these players you mentioned currently are playing very few ranked rounds. You need anywhere from 80-100 with an average below 60. Also when you hit tour legend, like any other tier progression, your average resets.
But some of those who are playing fewer ranked rounds are purposely doing so to keep from moving to Tour Legend. Now why they are IMO is to be able to cherry pick Legend weekly and monthly tournaments with less competition. ( the top of almost every legend tournament leader board has 2,3 or 4 or so who IMO should put in their rounds, as they did before TL was introduced, and move up.)
Without naming anyone, a couple players who would fall in top 20 of all players;
from their scoring history
in the 6 weeks since TL tier created have played 60-70 ranked rounds ( slow down for both started Aug 2 2012.
in the 2-3 weeks prior ( as far back as their history goes ) 110-115 ranked rounds.
so just doubling prior to new tier rounds would be 220-230 ( low end number ) rate of play for about 6 weeks down to actual 60-70 for 6 weeks.
Really come on, what, are they afraid of moving up.?
