Yes and no. It will never be one of my ten best (if it comes to that, I'm retiring) but what it can do (and did) is knock off one of my previous ten best for being the oldest. Prior to this round being played, my 20th oldest round was one of my ten , an 11.4 differential. Once the next revision comes, that round drops off, and is replaced by this one (a 22.2 diff). Since this one is not one of my ten best, it goes searching for the next one, which is a 13.2.
Actually, as of the last revision I was a 9.9. Since then I've had one good round and this one and I am going to be a 9.8 on the 1st. (Would have been 9.6 had I not played Saturday)
