Needs a few refinements

Would like to be able to reorganise the Leaderboard by Name, Teeoff time, hole etc. The current version doesn’t seem to allow this functionality. Favourites can be saved but more display options are needed to personalise user experience.
Live cast is good.
Follows in different time zones so it’s easy to keep up to date from around the globe.


Could be better

Two simple things missing - a course card and a search function on the leaderboard. You can use the ‘favourites’ function to find people but a simple search or alpha re-order function would be helpful.

Developer Response

Thanks for your review - we will hope to improve search in future app versions. We provide the pars and yardage for each hole in the interactive Course Guide section. Hopefully, this helps!


Radio problem

Wasn’t able to get any of today’s radio coverage, since the app updated last night. It was working yesterday afternoon before the update...will be disappointed if the radio isn’t working tomorrow whilst out on the course.

Developer Response

Hi Bryan, thanks for this. We've put in a fix for this in a recent app update that is now live in the store. Please try updating your app and we hope this resolves your issue.
