We all enjoy gathering with our buddies after a round, adding up scores from different foursomes and figuring out who beat whom in the various games that were being played. However, what if all that happened in real time, letting you know what was on the line when you were playing the last few holes? VPAR, a London-based company, offers a phone app that can create a live-scoring experience for anything from match- or stroke-play tournaments to your regular four-ball grudge match. The app’s latest version can track up to 32 golfers and monitor multiple games simultaneously. You can share live leader boards on Facebook and Twitter to keep others up-to-date. The VPAR app, which offers GPS distance measuring and stat tracking, has a $8,99 yearly fee.
