Default Tournament Winning Percentage

So, the PDGA gives us the total number of "Career Events" on the player info page (I just noticed this, not sure how long they've been doing that). I was curious about all-time winning percentages. So I cherry-picked some stats from pro men to see how they stack up.

Name - wins/events - %

McBeth 107/296 36.1
Wysocki 104/291 35.7

Climo 223/455 49.0
Schultz 227/522 43.5

Some notable Europeans:

Lundmark 39/94 41.4
Lizotte 67/167 40.1
Nybo 38/114 33.3

Turns out, none of these folks are even close to the top percentages out there in the pro mens field...some win over half the time they enter a tourney!

playerA 100/190 52.6
playerB 91/167 54.5
playerC 55/89 61.8

Can anyone guess who are these mystery players?

I'm not going to guess on the mystery players, but I imagine they are top-tier players who don't actually tour much, or if they do, it's more regionalized than national/global. Guys like MJ or Dickerson or Leiviska who pop up at big events now and then but play a bunch of A & B tiers closer to home where they tend to be bigger fish in smaller ponds and accumulate wins that way.

The As & Bs are just ways to keep the money coming in for some, I'd like to see the percentages for just the Majors and/or NTs.

That's right. Looking closer at his PDGA page I guess he doesn't travel out of his region a lot, but on the other hand he's got two top 5 finishes in USDGC.

Take a look at what he did in 2004-06.

2004: 7 wins in 10 events (and 2nd at USDGC)
2005: 11 wins in 12 events
2006: 6 wins in 7 events

He won 24/29 events in those three years (82.8%), that is pretty amazing.
