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.
The ScoreLynx application is completely free, and downloadable from the app store. To test it out 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.

What's New in Version 5.0
ScoreLynx has been completely rewritten to bring it up to current standards and also to improve and simplify the user experience. ScoreLynx is now much easier for new users to join existing games. It also removes a lot of the old limitations that prevented games from being easily scored by other players if the original scorer discontinued scoring.
ScoreLynx still provides both scorers and watchers access to the games live leaderboard results and score entry for those keeping player scores.
While ScoreLynx is still a free app, if you do want to score for more than one player you will need to agree to an in-app purchase of an annual subscription.
