Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

      Below there are 9 different match or game formats listed . These are all very fun and exellent formats for us to enjoy here at WGT . Each one of these formats would not be one that would have any way to record a round that would be able to a effect ones average in anyway .
    **( of course with the exception of match play rounds up to the level of Legend  . After which point would no longer have any effect one way or another , up or down on ones average ). 
      This is all correct ( above ) 
      I have been asked this question frequently . The above is the only way I can figure out to explain it .
      For instance . If one decided to play any one of those 9 formats for a period of say 1 year exclusively . During that year , said persons average would do nothing . Neither go up or go down .
      Does not affect me at all one way or another . Just trying to confirm this to be true . FYI
     MATCH PLAY
    MATCH PLAY CHALLENGE
    ALTERNATE SHOT
    BLITZ
    BLITZ CHALLENGE
    SKINS GAME
    HOLE-IN-ONE CHALLENGES
    CLOSEST-TO-THE-HOLE CHALLENGE
    PRACTICE ROUNDS
    *BO PAR 3
    *BO PAR 5
    can be included as rounds that do not effect ones average , but are stroke and ranked , but not counted toward saturation .
    ** 
     pdb1:

      Try this tip . Up until the level of Legend . The fastest way to tier up is to challenge players of any tiers above your own to a scored match play round . You will win some . Some may even let you win . WGT  scores you with the highest margin of points on your average when you beat a tier above your own . Depending on the tier and margin of win . You could gain 3 or 4 points that would drop your average 3 or 4 points right there . It is the only way match play can effect your average . Like i said . The quickest way to tier up . 
      Not to mention . You will meet obscure players with the " find a game " feature searching for higher level match play opponents . Players with 15,000 match play rounds and 10,000 stroke play rounds . One right after another . It is incredible . 
      Other than that you could waste a lot of time if you were to play 11 shades of grey

    PD I do think you are over complicating this:
    The known:
    RRs count for average (exc BoP3/5 as all done);
    MP (scored or challenge) will zoom you to Legend, but once L they will not zoom you to TL.;
    Earnings also affect your progress, but sadly WGT seem to choose to leave MPC earnings out of the equation.
    The X Factor:
    WGT will not, for good reason I think, share more.
    After that just chill.  Go have a smoke, play some guitar or even WGT Smile

      Lol once again my approach to to what I am inquiring couldn't be clearer to me . Again it obviously evades others as I did not really go into detail as to why I wanted confirmation that the 9 games above do nothing to decrease or increase ones average one way or another . 
     As also is my clear awareness of the various types of games that actually do move ones average one way or another . Lol not concerned about those in this thread .
      FYI my quest to inform  various uninformed CC members I keep running into little issues that are stunning to discover some members ( WGT & CC ) that just don't know some stuff . In that quest to inform . As I have found and mentioned before . There just may not be any information written specifically pointing out what could be crucial facts and or general knowledge . I don't think any of it is written . We just have to wing it or guess . Because whatever it is sure ain't written in the FAQ's . Lol . NVRFKNMIND.
      I'm just sayin

    I just unexpectedly went to Championship tier (thought I needed a 58 average, but it was 59). What is the saturation number of games?

      I believe the Champion Tier saturation is 200 Ranked Rounds. I always get confused when it comes to Par 3's and Par 5's when discussing saturation. Hopefully someone else can elaborate a little deeper.
      Congrats on making Champion

       You need to play at least 200 ranked rounds as Tour Legend to be saturated ( average stops  going up ).
        When your average score is equal to or  smaller than 59 you go from Tour Legend to Champion.

         You need to play another 200 ranked rounds as a Champion to be saturated ( average stops going up ).
        As far as BO par3's & BO par5's . They will not count . Their averages are outside the WGT valid par range . 
        BO par4's will count .

      Hey Paul,
      Thanks for chiming in. Where I get confused is do the 3 and 5 Ranked Rounds count towards saturation? I understand the scores do not count towards average but do the rounds themselves count?

      Nothing of Par3 and Par5 games counts towards the average.
      It wouldn't work out in any other way.

      Considering that it took me 520 ranked rounds to saturate as Legend, I would say the 3s and 5s don't count.

        This is not new news . This has always been the case .
        I used to think that it was a ranked counted round for saturation . It is not . That means that your 20 rounds counted for overall game completion . But not for your average nor saturation . Sounds like . 
        Which doesn't make sense . Go figure . Lol .
