Ratings and Reviews



Love the new course guide! Only thing it is missing is a shot tracker.

Too slow in score updates


Leaderboard updates are too slow. Can't rely on info as it is regularly a few minutes behind live !!

Wow really good

I understood very little of gold, it was on the telly, annoyingly and I had noticed this app in the store trending, so I thought I'd check it out, besides the sweet as candy beautiful UI, I actually ended up following most of the first round from the iPad and.... I got it! So now I guess I don't mind golf!
This must be a "gateway app" lol because I got quite hooked on watching players moving around the course and seeing the leader change every few minutes early on, very fun. All sports apps should be like this, we can't all go to he real thing you know! kudos The Open!!!
