From Match Play to Stroke, Golf Games to Liven Any Round

How many different types of golf games have you played? Go ahead and count along with us: the most popular golf games are stroke and match play and, during group events, you probably have played in a Best-Ball or in a Stableford competition.

The fact is that there are dozens of golf games created to liven up any round, among which you can find ones with really funny and strange names but which will not even give you a clue how to play them.

For example, have you ever heard of Cut Throat, The Bear, The Rabbit, Three Little Pigs, or Devil Ball? Where you wouldn’t find these games being played in official events on the PGA Tour, you can always try one while playing a friendly round with your partners.

Team Mobitee is working diligently on making the most popular game formats available in our golf app. Currently, we offer six game types: Individual, Split Sixes, Scramble, Best Ball, Foursomes and Alternate Shot.  Depending on the type of game you choose, there are three scoring systems: Stroke, Stableford and Matchplay.

Below is a brief description of one and two-player golf game types available on Mobitee:

Mobitee game setupLet’s start from the Mobitee game setup screen.  At the top of the screen, you can choose up to four players for the round.

Next choose game type. For one player there are Individual Stroke and Stableford scoring modes; for two players you can also choose Match Play.

For the next step, choose which holes to play.

Click on the course format and switch between eighteen holes, front nine and back nine – then you can also choose the hole from which you wish to start.

In the event you have selected two players, you will also have one more option available – wagers.

Having set up your golf game, proceed to next screen, add players and start your round!

Let’s take a look at the scorecard. After completing the last hole edit, you will be offered to see the scorecard – the first screen will be the Leaderboard. To switch to net score results, clicking on the text below the score will view how it looks in the example of gross score.

To Par shows your score with respect to par. For example, in our case Emily’s score +15 means that she made 15 shots more than the par of the course.

Score – total gross score for the round. The less the better.

Thru – shows home many holes you have already played. F means that all the holes were completed.

Progression – shows your passion with respect to the position after previous hole. For example, on the 16th hole you were points behind but made birdie on the 17th hole and moved to you first position… in this case, there will be +1 in front of your name. E means that your position has not changed since the previous hole.

Mobitee Gross Leaderboard

Click on the man image near the menu button to see scores for each hole.

Scores line shows your gross score, Net scores will display your score when taking handicap and extra strokes into account.

Near Emily’s name there is Hcp and Virtual Hcp values.

Hcp is your current Hcp (the one before the round started), Virtual Hcp is the Hcp which is calculated during the current round. It’s up to you whether to apply Virtual Hcp at the end of the round or not.scorecard

Next week, we will tell you about game types for three and four players available in our Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant. Stay tuned!

How to Use Scores and Recoveries Feature In Mobitee Golf GPS Caddy

What do all golfers wish for, aside from the holy grail of a hole-in-one? Most players want to improve their handicaps, which means that the ultimate aim is to make more pars, birdies and eagles while avoiding penalties and hazards. But, no matter how skilled you are in the game of golf, you will always have to work through these kinds of difficulties

This week’s featured Mobitee golf blog concludes a series of posts devoted to the use of our app to track and measure your golf statistics, namely, how to use the Scores and Recoveries components.

Mobitee Golf App Score SectionThe Scores section shows the general info on your holes played; the number and percentage of pars, birdies, bogeys etc. As seen from the screenshot above, Emily made 8 pars, 6 bogeys and 3 – 2x bogeys. One hole is missing (as we have only three lines on the screen) and it is birdie; to see it you should scroll down this area of the statistics screen.

Mobitee Screen Shot - ScoresNow let’s have a look at Recoveries. You should use Expert Mode of score edit to be able to track these stats.

Initially, you can look on your scorecard to see on which holes you have bunker shots and penalties, but for this example, just scroll down the area under NET STB – the holes will be marked with number 1.

Mobitee Net Stableford - EmilyNext, go to the Statistics screen to see your results in Percentage (%) in the Recoveries Section. It shows you three values: Scrambling, Penalties Save and Bunker Shots Save. Let’s go into each value a bit further:

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 3.33.34 PMThe PGA definition of scrambling is the percent of time a player misses the green in regulation, but still makes par or better. So, if you scrambled, it means that you made fewer than two putts on this hole. On the screenshot you can see that Emily claimed 1 scramble out of 8 possible.

Penalties save means that you finished a hole with par or better in spite of having made a penalty. In Emily’s round, there were 4 penalties and only once the score was par – therefore the percentage is 25%.

Bunker shots save is the percent of time a golfer scored par or better on the holes where he/she trapped into bunkers. If you have a high percentage here, this can only mean that you find the bunkers quite easily.

I wish you to score only pars and better and your recoveries section remain empty during and after your rounds!
