Scoring
Scoring is automatic. There are a series of prompts in conjunction with gps that determine where your ball lands and whether your score percentage goes up or down. Scoring is a percentage of made shots vs missed shots. If you make all of your shots you receive a 100% score and if you miss all of your shots you receive a 0% score. Most golfers will be somewhere in between.

A Simple Progression
Set Tee Location
While on the tee, click on Set Tee Location. Choose from the selection of tee boxes shown. If there are more than 3 tee boxes, you may need to scroll to your teebox. Do this by pressing, holding and scrolling until your tee box color or name appears. Select. Your GPS distance appears. Save. Take your shot.
Fairway, Green or Other
Proceed to your ball. While standing over your ball, click on Fairway, Green or Other depending on where your ball is. The distance your ball traveled from your last shot is automatically calculated based on your selection and your distance to the green.
If your ball traveled the required distance for your level and your ball is on the fairway or green you will receive a percentage increase on your scorecard. If your ball did not travel the required distance and/or did not land on the fairway or green you will receive a percentage decrease on your scorecard. Choosing Other means that your ball has landed in a location other than the fairway or green.
Complications? Press New ball location 3 times and follow the prompts. Yardage adjustments according to your Level will apply.
Ball on Green?
Putting while on the green. The first prompt after choosing Green on the app and shooting your first putt is a request to answer whether your ball is within one Putter Length from the hole, Yes or No. A Yes is a positive percentage increase and a No is a negative percentage decrease.
If not, select No and continue putting until your ball is within a Putter Length (a Putter Length is equal to 3 feet). From there you only have one putt to get your ball in the hole. Once Yes or No is selected the app will finalize the hole and move you to the next hole. If the ball lands in the hole from off the green or you one putt, you are credited the same as making both putts.
