Online Scoring
All official scores will be done through PDGA Digital Scoreboard. If you need an overview, you can read up at http://bit.do/pdgascoring and when it’s time to go, simply go to www.pdga.com/score to get started. The access code is: smac. These scores will be official and authoritative. That is, if you confirm an incorrect score, that is the same as turning in an incorrect physical scorecard and you would be penalized. Tips that I’ve learned in using this for previous tournaments are to sign out and sign back in if you are having issues loading anything, especially between rounds. And don’t forget to click confirm on your round at the end - simply entering the scores of the last hole is not enough. Physical scorecards are available to be used as backups in the event of technical difficulties. If this is your first time with PDGA Digital Scoreboard, please keep an open mind and try it out. It has had great reviews from people playing my tournaments and helps everything run much faster and smoother.
We will also have regular scorecards available for backup.
