The Scoring Machine

The Scoring Machine
Startup Tutorial

So, you’ve installed The Scoring Machine on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.  Now what?

You may want to keep information about as many golf courses as you play.  For all the tees at each course or just the ones you use.

Follow along to see how easy it is to enter information about the tees at your favorite course.  Once you’ve provided a few key pieces of data, The Scoring Machine is ready to use.

Let’s get started…

Tutorial Initial

– 1 –

Tap the Courses item on the tab bar at the bottom of  the screen.  If you’ve just installed The Scoring Machine, it looks like this…

Find the scorecard for your home, or favorite, course.  Yes, that’s it… find the actual printed scorecard.

(We’ll assume in this tutorial that you’re a member at the Fairways Golf Club.  If not, you’ll use the data from your scorecard.)

Tap Add (+) to enter information about another course…

Touch the Name item and use the keyboard to enter the name of your golf course.  Tap Next. If the golf club’s name is different than the name of the course, enter it.

Tap Next again and enter the location of the course.

Initially, your new course is set up with 2 nines, called the Front Nine and the Back Nine, and a single tee, the Blue Tees.  You may change that.

To change information about a nine, tap its name.  To add another nine, tap Add a Nine…

To change information about a tee, tap it in the list of tees.  To add another tee, tap Add a Tee…

To change the color of a tee, tap the Color item to select another color.  If the tee has a special name, like “Championship Tees” or “Ladies’ Tees”, enter that name.

When entering the rest of the information about a tee, you may enter data for men or women or both.  Use the Men or Women switch to indicate which you are providing.

Tap to enter the Course Rating from this tee, a number around par, usually to a tenth.  The number should be available on the printed scorecard or from the pro shop.

Do the same with the Slope Rating, a number between 55 and 155, entered as a whole number.

Finally, enter the hole-by-hole yardage, par and hole handicaps (stroke allocations) exactly as they appear on the printed scorecard.

If the tee is used by men and women, tap the Men or Women selection switch and provide the ratings, yardage, par and hole handicap data for the other gender.

If you are editing a course and need to remove a tee, you can do it here, but you can’t remove the only remaining tee.

When you’ve finished, your course should now have a name, nines and tees as you found them on the printed scorecard.

Tap Save at the top right to save all your data.  If you decide not to keep a new course or changes you’ve made to an existing course, tap Cancel to forget your changes.
