Digital Scoring Policy
Digital Scoring Policy
EFFECTIVE IN 2021:  The MGA adpted a Digital Scoring Policy, which is an online, web-based, hole-by-hole scorekeeping process for all MGA championships and qualifers, and USGA qualifiers. The policy replaces keeping an official paper scorecard.  

The digital scoring procedure uses the Golf Genius app which may be downloaded for free at the Apple and Android App stores. All competitors in the field who have a smart phone ARE EXPECTED TO download the app. Competitors will record hole-by-hole scores via the Golf Genius app, as this will be the official means by which scores will be marked and returned to the committee. While the MGA will not be supplying paper scorecards, if a player elects to do so, they may keep a paper scorecard as a backup to the mandatory electronic method.

Two important takeaways for you to remember:
  1. The policy is MANDATORY; and
  2. It replaces an official paper scorecard.
Leaderboards will be available for viewing on both the MNGOLF.ORG website as well as through the Golf Genius app.
