NEW FEATURE NOW LIVE

Leaderboards are an exciting new way to play and compete amongst friends and other Shot Scope users from all over the world. Combined with the Medals feature released last month, Leaderboards are generated based upon points earned from unlocked Medals.

Play a round, unlock Medals then climb up the Leaderboard. See where you rank against your friends, stimulating a little extra competition each time you play. The incentive is to beat your friends, and make sure your friends know about it! Have competitions within competitions to see who can knock the longest drive out there or hole the longest putt.

There are also Leaderboards for more detailed statistics; such as Approach Proximity, Short Game in the Red Zone and One-Putt Percentage.

The main Leaderboard categories are; Driving, Approaches, Short Game, Putting, Scoring, Medal Points. See the table below for all Leaderboards within those categories…

As ever Shot Scope are always looking to improve the user experience. Over time we aim to develop different types of Leaderboards, enhancing the Shot Scope user experience.

Leaderboards allow for users to interact amongst their friends, and users all over the world. They can try to beat that ridiculously low round by someone in a different country, or more simply, have the lowest round out of their group of friends. The Leaderboards can be used in whatever way the user wishes, it will be entirely up to them how much they interact with the feature.

Bringing interactive and innovative features to Shot Scope V2 separates the product from its competitors. The only GPS and Performance Tracking Golf Watch to offer this level of user competition post round.

The Qualities of a Perfect Texas Scramble Team?

To be successful in a texas scramble you need to have 2 key players in your team. A long driver and an extremely strong putter. Getting a long ball in play off the tee greatly increases the chance of a birdie, stick the approach in close and knock in the putt. Easy.

To win a scramble you need to make every putt that you ‘should’ make, as well as holing a few longer unexpected putts. Putting is vital within a texas scramble. Golf always comes down to ‘drive for show, putt for dough’, the famous phrase throughout the golfing world. As a team you get 4 attempts at the same putt, so if you want to shoot low, one of you has to hole the putt!

Having someone who can hit the ball miles is great, but it also benefits the team to have someone who can hit more consistently down the middle of the fairway. Let the accurate driver hit before everyone else, so that the rest of the team can give it that little bit extra – knowing that there is already one ball safe and in play takes the pressure off.

Sometimes having a female in the team gives an upper hand over teams without one. If they can knock a drive well down there off the forward ladies tee, it hugely benefits everyone in the team.

 

Our Texas Scramble Team

Gavin Jamie Neil Jen
Handicap +1 3 4 0
Av. Score to par 2.3 5.2 4.2 1.7
Strength Driving (distance) Long approaches Putting Driving (accuracy)
Weakness Chipping Putting Long approaches Long approaches

 

Our strategy

Gavin can smack drives a long long way down the hole which will make our approach play shorter. Neil is an outstanding putter with the ability to knock in putts from all over the green. Jamie will attack the par 5s with the accuracy of his long approach play. Jen will utilise the advantage of playing from the ladies tees by knocking drives further up the middle.

Given we are all category one golfers, we should be hitting every green in regulation (or better) as we will have 4 attempts at hitting each green. Chipping is a weak side for our team, however our strengths should outweigh this and ideally we will have no chip shots.

Look out for our blog next week about our (hopefully) winning formula.
