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".....

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.

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).

    • For the average golfer, getting a driver "that won't hurt your game" is critical. Getting fitted forces you to take a look at what really works, rather than what you think works. As for tech, a lot of it has been incremental change, with an occasional tech bubble that may or may not take off. Depends on when "recent" starts.... 2004: TM R7 driver features adjustable weights in the head to help shape ball flight. 2008: Muzuno MP600 driver features "fast  track" slots in the sole that let you move weighted screws to left or right. It was going on clearance about the time I got fitted for my Callaway HyperX Tour driver. 2012: TM goes with "loft up" ... touting high-launch, low-spin drivers as the route to exceptional distance. Several OEMs start making mini-drivers. TM also adds SLDR and Jetspeed drivers. 2015: "Turbulators," small fins in the crown of the Ping G30 drivers that promise better wind flow over the head. 2017: The Callaway Epic driver with "jailbreak" technology: two metal posts behind the clubface that promise better power transfer through the ball, and a gain of about 10 yards... It depends on how much the technology is new, and how much it is recycled from a few years back. And so we haven't forgotten, parting wisdom from above...  
    • He must have been very messed up or the authorities would not have arrested him.  Why was he driving in that state? Where was Notah to look out and take his keys? Imo he must have been way messed up. .09 breathalyzer or something and a minor infraction like a rolling stop and there's no way he's arrested unless he is not well liked anyway in that area.  
    • I'm just saying, I don't understand why cheating 'scandals' are scandals. I love my wife, I don't cheat on her, but that doesn't mean I don't 'want' beautiful women I meet. Perhaps it's a difference in views, or a different in age that gives us a different outlook, but like I said, when I was young, we couldn't wait for away games to leave the gf's behind. If you think Tiger is the only married womanizer on tour, i'm almost positive you would be sorely mistaken. Superstars live a different set of rules than us, and Golfers are held to this higher moral standard than any other athlete, it's ridiculous. (I'm not talking about golf rules, i'm talking personal life). Having been born with an abundance of talent does not mean you need to be a rolemodel, Athletes are the LAST people we should pick as role models, because a majority of them are just like Tiger.    Had this been Jordan in the early 90's, either this, or the cheating scandal, it would have been a non-issue as long as he scored 30 points a game. But the press hushed things up for Jordan (his gambling, cheating, and partying were well known), because he was just that good. But from Tiger we expect more, just because it's golf. I don't get it. He was as human as the rest of us before his fall, and he still is today. I don't get riled up about an athlete doing something stupid, because I know what it's like to be just a university athlete, so I can't imagine what its like to be a superstar and avoid all these things, on the road constantly, women throwing themselves at you, women willing to jump in bed with other women with you because of who you are. It would be hard for any mortal man not to fall in that trap. 
    • Hi. I'm looking for some advice. I have played a set of mizuno mp 52s for the last year fitted with DG SL r300 shafts. Over the last 5 or 6 rounds I have noticed that my normal high ball flight has now started to land with moon dust on my ball it's going that high and I'm losing nearly a clubs distance. The main prob is I'm hitting the ball better than ever. I'm not a long hitter, my 7 iron is 140 yards with a good strike. My last round I was constantly coming up at least a club short.getting really frustrated playing well but constantly leaving myself 20 foot putts for birdie/par. I've decided to try reshaft have my irons with DG s300 shafts in an attempt to try and bring down the ball flight a bit. I've hit stiff flex before and not noticed any loss in distance and accuracy. As I only play 5-pw and the set of s300 shafts I've bought are 4-pw im wondering whether it might be an idea to soft step them. I'm asking because I'm always reading it's best to play the softest flex possible. Does soft stepping make much of a difference? Would it make them a firm flex?  Any advice/experience appreciated.
    • I'll echo what @iacas said, I believe that everyone who plays reasonably serious golf should have the rules with them, in some form.  I've been a member of the USGA for a good while now, and one o the good things about membership is the brand new RoG that I get every spring.  Anyway, you got the right response above.  I actually had a fox steal MY ball a couple weeks ago, in plain sight, and we all knew the rule in our group.
