Golf Tally Puzzle

Golf Tally Puzzle
Three friends played golf together regularly all season. At the end of the season they tallied up their scores and compared them to see who had done the best overall. As a result, a heated discussion broke out as to who really did do the best.

David pointed out that he had finished ahead of Robert more often than he had finished behind him.
Robert countered that he had finished ahead of Bailey more often than he had finished behind him.
Bailey claimed that he had finished ahead of David more often than he had finished behind him.

All of the statements are true, how could this be?
