I wonder how many people use apps to enter score. I find it rather clumsy to open up an app to tap things in after each hole. If you use an app, which one do you use?

I've been using a great score keeping app for quite a while.   It is easy to use, readable in bright sunlight, slips easily in any pocket or a variety of holders, and I haven't had to replace the batteries or recharge it for a long time.     It's called a "pencil".....        a2_wink.gif

A scorecard, that way I can laminate it when I reach a milestone, or achieve a personal best.

I just switched from scorecard to app, but this is an interesting argument in favor of going back to scorecards!

 

I use Golfshot.  I don't actually pay for the GPS, so there are some scorecard features I don't get access to, but I like using the app cause it keeps track of all the basics really easily for me, like score, putts, fairway % (with left/right %), GIR, saves, penalties, and handicap.  If you're keeping score for four people it takes a little too long to record scores every hole, but if you're only tracking yourself or yourself and one buddy I don't find it takes too long.

The app I use is ScoreCard 2. I easily enter the numbers from the hole onto my app and then can sync it to my computer. I then post the scores to my website. I did this a while ago when it was more in vogue around here to do so and just kept it up. There are a few of us that still do it. See the link in my signature to get a feel for it. When I finish a hole I put in the score, check off if it was in the fairway, left or right, put in a number of how far the first putt was to hole, adjust for number of putts and if I missed the green check off if I could save par or not. It takes 15 seconds at the most and provides great stats.

I've been using Golfshot for a couple months as well.  It's free and easy to keep track of a lot of stats and, literally, takes all of about 10 seconds after each hole to enter everything.

 

I just played a round with someone who has the GPS portion of the app and it was really cool.  So I bought that for myself as well, but haven't used it yet.

 

I only use the app for myself, so we're also writing down scores on a scorecard while we play.  I didn't vote because there was no choice for both.

Neither. I have no problem remembering my round. In match play I'll use the scorecard provided.

I switched from the GolfCard app back to the paper scorecard for most of my rounds.

 

I find it easier to ignore my total score when I have to do the math myself.  I track fairways, greens, approach shot distance, and the distance of each putt.  From that I can get more stats than the typical app tracks, such as made putt % based on distance, how often i hit the green from x yards and how close I am when I do.

 

I still use the app for GPS, and when I don't feel like tracking all the other stats I sometimes use it for the score.

Easy scorecard. Not real comprehensive but has cool features. I usually keep track of the round in my head and start the app up mid round to enter the score. Seems to work well. I guesssssssss if I need a scorecard for a personal milestone I could fill it out afterward.

 

App is nice because you have a history of your scores at your finger tips. Gives you something to check out while you are on the can and thesandtrap is boring.

In my head, typically. Though I'll write down stuff on my scorecard for later entry into an app, or sometimes use the app on my phone to enter it in.

Old school scorecard.

post #12 of 31

I refer a good ol' scorecard.  If I forget to grab one, I'll open an email on my phone and note the score for each hole.  I also like to note what clubs I hit and distances and do that on the card or phone.

I use Nike Golf 360, you enter your score, putts and where you hit your drive and it calculates your GIR percentage, putts per round, and driving accuracy.

Scorecard.

 

My cell phone's battery would die too quickly and it is too hard to see on bright days.

Non tournament weeks, my group all uses their own skycaddie / other gps device. Easy for tracking fairways and putts at the end of the hole. Tourneys we still use them as our check marks against the scorecard (filled out by someone else of course.)

Scorecard. We're always playing some kind of game(s) within the group and I tend to keep one card for the scores and another for the game(s).

Memory...Rather than the actual number I focus on the deviation from par.
