The Tour Feature
In this Blog post we are taking the opportunity of explaining how this Feature works and where you can find it on the App.
This feature allows the Grinter to create a Tour among his/her friends or anyone who wants to participate on a Tour and Events using the App. It also allows the Organizer to set up the Tour AND the Live Leaderboard directly from the Tour Feature. This way whenever it’s time to Play the Tour Events, you already have set up the Leaderboard, with the Golf Course, the Tees and the Date of the Event.
So, this is how it works:
A Tour is simply a series of Events, where golfers participate and accumulate points. Each event can have up to 4 Rounds. So simply imagine the PGA Tour FedEx Cup for regular golfers. Below tips on how to use it…
On the Main Menu Tap on “My Tours”
Then select the Tour you already have created (Green Arrow) or Tap on “New Tour” on the Right Hand Side (Red Arrow) to create a new one.
If you Tap on “New Tour” you will see this Screen (make sure you Tap on “Save Tour” at the bottom after you fill out everything):
After you create the Tour or have one already created and you select it on the Tour List, you will see this Screen (below) where you will see the Tour Stats and the Tour Ranking. You can also select the Members Option on the Top to Manage the Members (Add or Delete); the Options button will take you to the Screen above.
If you Tap on Events on the Top Right Corner (above), you will be able to see the Events you have created (or can create) within the Tour. These Events count towards that Tour; and you can have as many as 4 Rounds within that Event (for example, you can have a whole Weekend of Golf as one Event).
Like the Tour Screens, you can View the Event Ranking (each event has its own Ranking); you can view/edit the Event under the Options button, and you can manage the Handicaps for each of the Event Members.
KEEP IN MIND THAT ONLY the Tour Organizer has the power of Editing and Adjusting the Tour itself as well as the Members’ Handicap. The Members can’t edit anything.
Now, one of the best part of this New Feature is that within this Tour feature, you get the Option of creating and Managing a Live Leaderboard for each of the Rounds you create on each Event.
For those Grinters who haven’t try the Live Leaderboard, this feature allow the Grinters to Play a Round of Golf and keep an eye on other players who are not in your Foursome. Meaning that you don’t have to wait until all of the Event Members finish playing to see who Won or who Lost.
You can have only one person to keep the Scores of each of the Foursome Members within the Live Leaderboard, but anyone can Join that Leaderboard on their own Phones to see how everyone is doing while you play.
We made this Feature as simple as possible so that everyone can use it anytime without having to input a lot of information and still Create a Tour or just a Friendly Game among Friends.
Remember that you can always contact TheGrint support through firstname.lastname@example.org at anytime if you have questions or have any problems with the Feature or App.
