Alt. games dont count for history as well but winning ones appear in profile messages. I recently lost my streak for a stupid reason and they gave me it back after a couple of days.
That is not true. Anything counts including 3 hole practice rounds.
Remember it is time you start the game, not when you finish it.
As to other posts above, they are right. WGT is generally generous about restoring streaks if player pleads even a 1/2 decent case
