Tournament Participation– makes competing fun and pleasant
As a player, you sometimes have to scour through the internet or multiple Organizer and Club sites just to determine which tournament you want to join. It is cumbersome, time consuming and in the end,you may miss many tournaments just because youdid not visit the right sites. The next problem is that even if you find the right tournament, the registration process is sometimes arduous because you have to download forms, fill them in, fax them to the Organizer, contact them to make sure everything is communicated, send a cheque or pay online to secure your slot and so on and so forth! Finally, when you turn up on the tournament day, almost invariably it is not clear what you are supposed to do, whom you are playing with, what your starting hole is etc. When the tournament is finally complete, you have to wait for hours before the results are announced. myGolf2u addresses all these problems and makes tournaments enjoyable for players and streamlined for organizers.Organizer or Clubs communicate with players through the App. When they create a tournament, it is visible to players if the tournament is not private. Players can define favourite clubs so that they can get notifications of tournaments of interest to them.You can register for atournament with a tap of a button and even pay to secure your slot rather than going through the whole manual rigmarole. The Organizers will typically enter information such as Name of the competition, start date, registration date, competition format, prizes, sponsors etc. In addition, once the registration process closes, the Organizer can generate the flight draw (pairings), which again all players can see on their mobile Apps. When you arrive on the day, you will know who you are playing with, what hole you are starting on, what your tee off time is and even which buggy number you are assigned to. Once the tournament begins, golfers will be prompted to enter the scoring page of the app, where they will see whom they have been assigned to score for by the Organizer. During play, they will only be able to score for thoseplayers and at any time they can view their own scorecards as well as their overall standing. This will give them an accurate account of where they stand in the competition, whether they need to take risks on the next shots or holes or whether they are sitting comfortably on the top of the leaderboard. In the end, once the final putt has been holed and the last score has been submitted, all the Organizer has to do is to finalize the tournament in case there are ties which can be determined by their OCB (On Count Back) settings. Typically, they would have to receive all scorecards, enter them manually into their systems and then determine the winners, a process which sometimes takes over two hours!
