    In 1 and 3 hole matches, my driving distance is 278;
    however, in tournaments,. it's only 269. 

    ???

    Apparel bonuses work in the coin games but not in tournaments, It wouldn't be fair otherwise. 

    Aperel works in a Ranked Round, though. You don’t win anything as it’s not a tournament but will help lower your Ave from the same conditions that tournaments are generally played at your tier.

    Just an observation I realised when checking the scorecard of a course and used ranked round. My driver distance was 300, same as aperel coin room, but my driver is 282 in tournament play...

    Ps if England had a decent manager, we’d have a great chance in the Euros, with a great squad...but we don’t, so won’t.

    C’mon England!!!

    you can't really be that clueless.. it's an act right?

      No it's real . But I love clues . I did not know about the rookie and so and so . Then I saw the Rookie label for the ShowDown .I saw my error .

    pdb1:
      So I apologize for being so ignorant .

      But I never feel bad for what I do not know .

      I would still like to know about these new levels . Are they Mobile related , coin based ?

      Looking at a scorecard . Will not determine if your apparel was active . The 300 yards isn't enough to tell you that .

      My average driving distance was 302 yards .  Before I started playing PCEA . Pretty much all I have played is coins with apparel enhancements . I still hit 320 t0 340 yard drives . But obviously not as many .

      My driving average is now 301 yards . I do not know how to explain that one .

    Rookie, Veteran, and Expert are just the labels for the three levels of showdown tourneys. They are not tier restricted at all. anyone can play in any of them.

    Rookie is played in Paris. thus each person plays from their tier tees. so legends and above would play from the Hardest aka back tees. etc etc.

    Veteran is played in Casablanca.

    Expert is played in Montreal.

    Both of those rooms are limited to just one set of tees which are the Master/TM tees. Everyone plays from those tees.

    There has been plenty of input that the expert ought to be played in Manhattan (back tees) and the veteran ought to be played in Montreal. hasn't happened yet tho.

    no you are misunderstanding. re-read what i posted. and understand that tier has ZERO to do with the rookie, veteran, or expert labels that are used in showdowns only.

    and you included alot of rooms that aren't related to showdowns at all.

    as i said. 

    re-read it's self explanatory.

      Okay . That I do understand . Now

    Mythanatos:

    .

      I'm not even going to bother .

      But I guess if Rookie , Veteran , Expert are only used in Showdowns . That are based on coin rooms . But are not considered Official Tournaments . Then they are basically meaningless .

      It is easier for me to understand and believe that some coin rooms are relevant to Showdowns . And some coin rooms are not .

      But if you had not spelled it out . I think I would not be the only one that was clueless to these new terminologies , events , features .

      I also am sure that there will be other things that may or may not be related to coins , Showdowns , Coin Rooms that may or may not have anything to do with each other . But in some way just in the mobile venue . That does now include PCEA . That I will be clueless again about at some point .
