ScoreLynx is native iPhone/iPad application that gives golfers a live leader board during golf tournaments, golf outings, or casual multi-foursome rounds. For the competitive golfer or golf team captains, having the ability to know where you stand in the tournament at any point in time can be the difference between winning and losing in your event.
ScoreLynx setup for tournaments or multi-foursome play is fast and easy. A designated administrator creates a unique "group name" and “game key” to define a new game for their group. When the game is created the administrator also defines the game type (several common and some uncommon games are available), skins type (several common and uncommon skin types are available), course (administrators can easily create a custom course if your course is not available yet), and the tees to be played.
iPhone/iPad users designated as their team's score keeper “check in” to the designated group and game and then setup their foursome in much the same way they would on a paper score card. They enter player names (up to four player’s per group) and player handicaps. By turning the device sideways (landscape orientation) a Scorecard appears that allows a score keeper to enter each player's hole by hole gross score.
Turning the phone back to portrait mode allows the user to view the live leaderboard. As each score keeper enters scores the leader board refreshes with the current scores (team and/or individual) and completed hole number. The leaderboard will also display any skins winners (or potential winners) in real time.
That’s it! It’s simple and easy to use, but will make you feel like a pro as you play through your round always knowing where you stand relative to the field.
Addtional capabilities on the leader board allow you to “drill down” to see the team members and each player's hole by hole score.
All scores are saved in a centralized database which may be accessed by registered ScoreLynx users to retrieve their historical score information.
To test ScoreLynx you can use the generic group name of "Demo" and generic game key of "demo". Enter your own team name and tap "Check In" and your ready to post scores and see where you stand on the leader board.
ScoreLynx is a free app and is downloadable from the App Store. You can keep score for a single player and view the full leaderboard, and access all other features of the app, totally free. If you want to score for more than one player you will be prompted for a one-time purchase of that feature. Once purchased you will be able to use that feature forever. If you reinstall the app just use the "Restore" option to restore your original purchase.

What's New in Version 5.6.2
Added a Pace of Play indicator to the leaderboard. The indicator will show you when a player has posted a hole but their post time is slower than the nominal pace of play of 14 1/2 minutes per hole (based on 4 hours and 20 minutes for an 18 hole round of golf). The indicator is a turtle emoji. If the post time is 10 minutes beyond nominal pace of play but less than 20, one turtle is shown. If the pace is 20 minutes or longer slower than nominal pace of play than two turtles are shown. On subsequent postings if the post time comes back in line, the turtles are removed.
