Scorecard. I hate using a phone on the course for any reason. 

post #20 of 31

Actually I use both the paper scorecard and the GolfShot app on my iPad.  I alway use a golf cart, so the tools are right at hand and do not delay the progress of the shot.  I make additional notes on the scorecard such as whether the putt missed L, R, S, LG & if the fairway shot was pure, fat, or thin, etc.  But the app gives me the distance of the drive, the stats, emailing me the app scorecard, etc.  I try to get the best of both worlds.  All that helps me review the round accurately when I get home. 

Guess that is the engineer in me also. e3_rolleyes.gif

Ditto.  One of the things I love about golf is that I consider it a total cell-phone free zone.

I love technology and can't golf without my iPhone now ever since getting a GPS app, but I can't imagine ever using anything other then a pencil and scorecard.  It doesn't feel like golf if it's not on a physical scorecard!

NIke's ng360 app is pretty great.  It keeps your score and stats, overall and per round.  I still use the scorecard though, for good measure.

Scorecard. I like Golflogix but my Evo has a garbage battery and seldom lasts an entire round anymore. I enter the scores into the app after I'm through so I can keep track of scores, GIR's, putts etc (I make notations on the score card for each hole so I can completely fill out the app when I finish the round).

I have experimented with a couple apps, but I keep going back to the scorecard... I really prefer not to use the phone if I don't have to, and I can track all the stats I want on a card just as easily if not more easily then a phone.... the thing I hate about scorecards is I prefer to walk and carry and there is never a good place to keep the card so it ends up wrinkled or torn, so I just bought a sumi-g scorecard/yardage book cover and plan to start using it... I have to say it makes me feel more like a pro and some may think I'm a poser for using it, but if it works as well as I think it will I really don't care, and if something as simple as a card wallet makes me feel more confident, helps me focus, and helps me shoot lower scores, then it's totally worth the $40 I spent on it.

Historically, always a scorecard.

I've sampled a few Android apps for scorekeeping, but none were all that great. In specific, most didn't keep the stats that I like to keep. But recently I found the oobgolf Android app looks like it's pretty cool as far as score and stat keeping goes. I've decided to give it a try. The free version keeps all the stats except one (distance of first putt) that I like to keep. For $10/year they open up a ton more stats to keep.

There's something nice about using a physical scorecard, but I wouldn't say no to an easy-to-use app on my phone.

Been using Golfshot for the last 4-5 rounds (with GPS) and have been really enjoying it. I find it sufficient to use instead of a laser rangefinder or separate GPS unit.

I use Golfly Snap. Best of both worlds. I use paper scorecards, and the app turn them into scores.

Golf logix has putting distances

Scorecard.  I can write down putts, GIR, distance of first putt, FIR, tendencies, etc., and I don't have to worry about my battery going dead on me.  The first time I used GolfLogix on my Droid Razr I ran out of juice on the 15th hole, and there's no way to replace the battery on my phone.

Another vote for the scorecard here, I tried an app with my iphone but it was too slow.
