So, you've installed TeeChart on your iPhone or iPod touch and 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 Bushwood Country Club. If not, you’ll use the data from your scorecard.)
Tap Settings at the upper left to provide some information about your handicap…
…or tap Edit at the upper right to edit information about courses.
The Settings screen allows you to indicate how your handicap is determined (the system used to calculate it).
Tap the Handicap Authority item to choose the method used by golf clubs or associations in your country or location.
Tap the My Handicap item to type the numeric value of your computed handicap (Handicap Index®, Handicap Factor™, Exact Handicap, etc.). TeeChart will highlight playing handicap data associated with this “official” handicap value.
Tap Done at the top right to return to the Courses list.
To change information about an existing course, tap its name.
To change the order of a course in the list, drag it up or down by its reordering control ().
To make a course a candidate for deletion, tap its delete editing control ().
Or, to add a new course, tap the Add (+) button at the left of the toolbar. Then begin editing information about it…
Touch the Name item and use the keyboard to change My Golf Course to the name of your course.
Tap Next on the keyboard to enter a Location for the golf course. A location is optional.
Tap Next to enter Par for your course. Par is required for some handicapping systems.
When you’re happy with your changes, tap Courses to return to your list of courses.
Now that you’ve added your course, continue to enter information about the tees you play.
Tap the name of your newly added course in the Courses list…
A tee has already been inserted in the list of tees for your course.
Tap Edit to edit (or add) information about the tees…
Just like editing courses, when you are editing tees you can move them around, delete them or add new ones.
First, however, we want to edit information about the Blue Tees. Do this by tapping the name of the tee in the list…
Tap the Color item to select the appropriate color for the tee - usually the color of its tee markers.
Tap and change the Name of the tee if it has a special name.
From your course’s printed scorecard, the pro shop or the USGA’s Course Rating and Slope Database™, find the Slope Rating from this tee. It should be a number between 55 and 155. Tap the Slope Rating item and enter the correct number. Unrated tees are usually given a Slope Rating of 113.
Find the Course Rating for this tee. It will usually be a number (to a tenth) around par. Enter the correct number.
Finally, if you have entered information for ladies playing this tee, use the switch to indicate it’s a Ladies’ Tee.
Tap Tees to return to your list of tees for this course.
Repeat tapping Edit to add another tee or to modify information about a tee on your course.
You can add as many tees as you like, and you may have two tees with the same name and same color - if a tee is rated for play by both men and women.
Once you’ve provided the information about your course’s tees, you’re done.
To determine what your playing handicap (or your partner’s or opponent’s playing handicap) should be from a particular set of tees, just tap the name of that tee in the Tees list…
Scroll the indicator up or down until you locate the row where a player’s handicap appears on the left. (The row highlighted in red indicates data for your own handicap.)
The player’s playing handicap (Course Handicap) from the indicated tees is shown in the right column.
TeeChart will remember where you were when you leave the app. If you decide to play another course or different tees on this course, tap Tees to back up.
