Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

mruseless,

This or a similar question was asked earlier in this thread with suggestions made. Check out some of that.
Iacas, how do you record a fairway missed long? Straight, well struck shot that rolls out just into the rough before a creek or before a patch of rough? Also, how would I record a fairway hit AFTER my first tee shot was plunked into the water? I reloaded, hit the fairway, hit the green, and two putted. But took a six due to stroke and distance.

Just curious, how do you mark in Scorecard for a drive that goes dead straight up the fairway, but lands in a bunker in the middle of the fairway?

Pick a side. Or mark it as a fairway hit.

Or, I suppose, don't mark anything.

Is there a method for posting stats on a partial round?

No, unfortunately there's not, and even in 2.0 (2009) when we add (i.e. "fix"

) the nine-hole option, we won't allow partial round statistics. It just gets too messy and is too infrequent a need. Unless, of course, you consider nine holes a partial round.

Any idea of that release date for 2.0 yet? The 9-hole round feature is what I'm looking for. Is the $29.95 per year or lifetime license? Does it include all updates?

Next year. Like... February 2009. Goal would be to get it out in time for the northern states to begin to use it. It will import your 1.x database, of course, so the transition will be smooth.

The license we currently sell is for 1.x and includes all 1.x upgrades. 2.0 will be made available at an upgrade cost as well as a "first time buyer" cost (probably still $29.95). Upgrade cost will be anywhere from 10 to 50% off, most likely. Only thing we have going on this year is the addition of the iPhone scorekeeping app. It'll just be a barebones scorekeeping app - it will sync to your desktop app and offer little more than that (keeping score on the course, syncing back so you don't have to type in your rounds) in 2008. It may be expanded in 2009, etc. We'll likely charge a little for it (anywhere from $0.99 to $4.99) for two reasons: a) to discourage people from downloading it and then complaining that it doesn't do anything (because they don't have the desktop app), b) to better manage customers (support, etc.) and possibly pay for expanded website functionality, etc.

Any future plans for a mobile page to access from smart phones or any html-enabled phone.

I'm not sure what you're asking. No, we don't plan to offer an HTML version of... the software? The scorekeeping application? Neither would work and/or would require all sorts of extra work.

Or maybe I'm not sure what you're asking.

Would it would be nightmare to design a feature to import scorecards from courses website?
I have a program for my Mac that does that with recipes.

I doubt we'll add such a feature - unlike with recipes imported from a few sites with known formatting, it would be awfully difficult (i.e. impossible) to design something to import tees, ratings, etc. from the hundreds or thousands of ways in which scorecards are presented online. At least impossible to do in a reasonable time frame. And that says nothing about courses where the scorecard is an image of their scorecard... And sometimes, by the time you find an online scorecard, you could have just typed the information in and gotten on with your day.

We may work with a site to pull down course information (a site that already has it and actively maintains their list), but somehow I think that's unlikely as they probably won't want to pair up with a "competing" product.

Just noticed a new iPhone app called Fore that does a lot of what Scorecard does. It is not as detail oriented, but syncs to Oobgolf.com. It is expensive at $29.99.

And if you want Scorecard's functionality on the iPhone, you may have to buy it. Current plans for the iPhone "Scorecard" are just a way to keep score and sync your scorecards (and the stats you enter) back to your desktop app.

Erik, I am demoing Scorecard now and I love all the stats that are availiable. I was just wondering what some of these other programs could do. My iPhone is a constant companion. I use it for my mileage journal, check the radar to see if rain is coming on the golf course, keep todos and a shopping list, and many other uses. The main problem with the iPhone is battery life. I think your idea for a way to upload data from the iPhone to Scorecard is a great start. That way we won't have to do double entry.

I have a couple questions, 1 Do you offer a military discount/and or the 20% off code still? and 2, any plans to port this to PDA?

The 20% still works, and no, no plans to port this to a PDA at all.

I'm playing around with the demo version and it's very nice, just one question, is there a way to note what club you used for each shot? This would be beneficial in determining if your club selection is correct/optimal for each hole.

EDIT: Also, what does US mean next to "Up and Down" and "Sand Saves"?

No, there's not. I'd get into the reasons why but the short answer is that we think that's unnecessary information.

EDIT: Also, what does US mean next to "Up and Down" and "Sand Saves"?

I believe the manual answers this: U = unsuccessful, S = successful. The left and right arrow keys can be used to set them, too.
