Can anyone on the forum answer this question? If you ask 10 different people you will get 10 different answers. If you read 10 articles you will read 10 different explanations. I'm trying to find out, who keeps whose score? Do you keep your own score as well as your playing partner's score? Does your caddy also keep your score and/or your playing partner's score? How do you know what your playing partner scored on a hole? What if he was OOB 300 yards away from you. How do you know how many shots he takes if you can't see him? Who tells you? How is it possible for a player to keep his own score, his playing partners score, be responsible for all information being totally accurate, and at the same time try to win a round in a professional golf tournament? Do officials at each green confirm the score for that green for each player in a group? Do the players rely on the scoreboards for the score that their playing partner shot? Do they simply ask each other what they got on the hole? You can see how complex this can be. Perhaps this is why no two people or no two articles can answer the question. I am a senior and have been playing golf for many, many years, and I am not ashamed to say that I have absolutely no idea how the Pros handle scorecards in a tournament round. Even if somebody on the forum tries to answer this, you will see how difficult it is to cover every question that people will have. You would think in today's world, this would be done electronically. When I play with 1 other person......I have a hard time just trying to keep my own score!!!! (LOL) Does anybody want to try to answer this? I'm sure it's not easy!
