    Or if the player has a high level with good clubs he / she has apparently played very few rounds the reason is simple then there is another explanation.

    He /she was a Facebook player that convinced WGT to move his account to the real WGT (but all the stats are the "property" of facebook) so just clubs tier and level were moved.

    Wait . Does that happen ? Never heard of that . I guess I'll just ask him .

    Also people are allowed to restart here which can cause problems and animosity.

    Or maybe ask why it took him so long to get to Legend and why his average is so high!

    ^^ Saw it firsthand when I got an invite from an already friend with 3 x's added to his name. I originally declined and sent the friend a PM asking him WTF he was doing. WGT did help him out getting off FB and he had the presence of mind to use his original name in the new name.

    This brings up an issue I think might be a problem for future FB escapees. If the new name (they can't just transfer the whole original name) is entirely different from the first one and the stats don't get carried over, a cursory look at an op's stats is going to be really misleading. Maybe WGT could just use a universal symbol added to the original name?

    Ok . So I asked him to explain the curious dates because I couldn't do the math . In fact when I tried it blew up my calculator .lol

    Here is his response

    "Hi Paul,


    I play A LOT of St. Andrews and I know it so well, it's almost not fair. Well, to average players. But I shoot very well there and it lowered my average to become a Legend. 
    I'd probably be a level 50 something if I hadn't bought 10+ level ups in the Pro Shop.
    I played about 20 hours a week too, maybe more. All I know is, I played a lot."

     

    So I thought about it and this is what I proposed

    I thank you for being honest . I don't have a problem with your method  . However I hope you know the magnitude of experience ( that you will definitely need soon ) that you missed out on . I will back you up in my club so long as you agree to not play any tier lower than legend on St . Andrews . Also that you make an effort to play other courses as well . For this is not a 1 course game . 

    The reason I make these stipulations is out of fairness for all my club members . Not to mention there are going to be some veterans who feel you are a "sandbagger " ( good luck beating some of them on St Andrews) . So because in our club I don't want any bad blood between members because I insist that we treat each other as teammates with friendly and professional competiveness .

    Let me know if you think this is something reasonable you can work with . Please feel free to ask me to consider any adjustment  or concern you may have .

    My goal is to provide a good CC experience to all members .

    Thank you Paul 

    May the SUN always be with you

    Personally the jury is still out on the credibility of his response . We will be watching to see ..

    It's comments like that one that really make me wonder . Hell 20 hours is a slow week

    for alot of us .

    And that one seems like he's grasping at straws .

    Lol . No I'm not talking to myself . And that's not me that i'm quoting . lol
