51 clicks lead to 5 sessions only

Hi everybody

I have set up referral spam filter and also excluded my company's IP

so it won't be counted in Google Analytics.

I just noticed that in the last 3 days I had 51 clicks in the Adwords interface but

Google Analytics reports on 5 sessions only

How is it possible?? even if we take in account the filters it still doesn't make any sense

Thank you for helping
