    I've been playing WGT off and on for years.  I am a Master Level 79 with a 64.9 average score.  My question is how did I ever get a 64.9 average score when I've never even been close to averaging 65 strokes per 18 holes?  Maybe WGT calculates average score differently than the real world?  Any thoughts?

    This is quite mysterious.

    While your scores of the last six weeks don't come any close to your average, some numbers in your stats indicate some other influence:

    - your total scores number is 404 - quite a lot.

    - you played no match play - no influence from there.

    - your best 9 hole score is 29 (= 58 for the average),

    - your best 18 hole score is 61.

    Thus, unless these good scores come from Par3 courses, you have had your moments which shine through your average.

    As a Master, the best 40 scores (ranked rounds) combine to the average. They may be hidden in a pool of Master scores but they may pile up, and don't go away.

    For clarity, all your Master scores would have to be available.
