Summary of recent improvements to ScoreKeeper
through
Version 11

In All ScoreKeeper editions:

  Latest (2016) USGA Handicap System Manual: all revisions included. 

  New feature "Assign Golfers as Active / Inactive" has been added. Golfers you designate as inactive are kept on file, and can be re-activated, but otherwise are kept hidden throughout ScoreKeeper screens and reports.

  A new option is provided to automatically save a Golfer Group that is in use when ScoreKeeper is closed, and to automatically re-create that group when ScoreKeeper is restarted. This option can be turned on/off.    

  Score entry:  when recording 2 scores per day, an optional AM / PM tag can be applied.  This assures correct ordering for handicap calculations, and makes possible separate scoring and reporting of AM / PM competitions (see below).

  'Most-Improved Golfers' report is reformatted; contrasts current golfer handicaps with those from a selected earlier date.

  'Ringer' Scores report is reformatted, displays each golfer's best score for each hole.

  Score entry: up to 20 strokes-per-hole can be recorded when using hole-by-hole score entry. 

  Printing Handicap Cards: sizing controls are provided to allow fine-tuning of the position (upper margin and left margin) and size (vertical and horizontal) of the card background so as to best align the background with printed text.  

 

In ScoreKeeper  League & Tournament  and  Clubhouse  editions:
 

  Pairings:  A new "Equalized / Random" option for assigning golfers is provided.. With this method, golfers are automatically divided into 2, 3, or 4 "flights" by handicap (for use in building 2-, 3-, or 4-somes respectively) and then each pairing is formed by randomly assigning to it one golfer from each flight. This method is sometimes referred to, for
foursomes, as "random A, B, C, D" assignment.  It produces a different set of pairings with each run, for a given collection of golfers / handicaps.   

Also, Course Handicaps for each golfer are now reported with USGA section 3-5 Course Handicap reductions (golfers playing from different tees) included.  Golfers who will compete from "forward" tees are displayed with the revised Course Handicap, and are tagged for identification.  You can specify which golfers will compete from forward tees.

 Pairings, building and editing:  A simple "double click" method for re-assigning golfers among pairings is provided.  Same applies for any "unfilled" slots, when the number of golfers competing does not fit pairing size.  Pairings can be rearranged, added or removed after initial "draft" pairings are created.

  Competitor Scorecards: Automatic display of 'USGA section 3-5' Course Handicap adjustments (golfers competing from different tees). Scorecards now show golfers' section 3-5 Course Handicaps where applicable.  The adjustment is made for golfers who will compete from 'forward' tees, and these golfers are selectable in a pop-up window.  A special tag "A" (adjusted) is displayed on scorecards both next to the golfer's name and to his/her Course Handicap in cases where the section 3-5 adjustment has been applied.

  Awarding Points:  When the Stableford Scoring system is selected, 2-digit custom point values can now be assigned to each outcome (eagle, birdy, par, etc.).  Previously, only single-digit values could be assigned.  Log file tags golfers for whom USGA section 3-5 Course Handicap reductions (golfers playing from different tees) has been applied in awarding points.

  Daily Results, Multi-Day Event, Match Results Reports :  Automatic display of 'USGA section 3-5' Course Handicap adjustments (golfers competing from different tees). These reports now show section 3-5 Course Handicaps / Net Scores where applicable ... i.e. in cases where a golfer's score was recorded using the designated section 3-5 tees ('forward' tees).  A special tag "A" (adjusted) is displayed next to the golfer's course handicap / net score in cases where the section 3-5 Course Handicap adjustment has been applied.

Daily Results Report: an option is provided to display fairways-hit, greens-in-regulation, and number of putts for each competitor.

  Competitor Scorecards:  cards redesigned to to provide more options ...
- Hole yardages and hole handicap ranks can be displayed for a single course, or you can elect to display hole handicap ranks for 2 courses (one for men one for women).
- Sizing controls are provided. These allow fine-tuning of the position (upper margin and left margin) and size (vertical and horizontal) of the
card background so as to best align the background with printed text.
- Four scorecard formats are available ... 9-hole (1-to-9), 9-hole (10-to-18) , 18-hole linear, 18-hole "over/under" (displays 18 holes, holes 1 through 9 appearing above holes 10 through 18.) 
- Three options are provided for marking handicap strokes awarded on each hole.
   1) Full handicap: each golfer's full course handicap is used in awarding strokes.
   2) Net vs. opponent: the golfer with the higher handicap is awarded the difference between his or her handicap and opponent's handicap.
   3) None: No handicap strokes are marked on the scorecards.
