Admit it. When you are playing golf by yourself or with your friends, there tend to be concessions. A bird flew by and distracted me. Can I take that stroke again? My hand slipped, so that shot shouldn't count. Golf score tracking can often include a lot of fudging and denial. Golf score tracking software can help with such a style of game play.

Score Tracking for Beginners and Pros

The beginning golf player is the one who will be most likely to dispense with the rules of golf when it suits him. If a beginning golfer has invested in golf score tracking software, statistical data is going to reflect that. The beauty of such programs is that they allow you to play it both ways. Next time you play, keep two sets of scores. One will be the real score. The other can include all the concessions you need to add to your already high handicap.

When you get home, try comparing the two scores with your golf score tracking software. Obviously, you can enter whatever information you want into the various fields. Try creating another player and entering your actual scores under his name. How is "he" doing? He's probably not doing as well as you, but that's okay.

The next time you play, try the same strategy. Now how is your alter ego doing? Is he getting better or worse? After a time, you may start to take an interest in that other player's progress. Denial can, after all, only take you so far. If the game is starting to become a passion, you may develop an actual desire to improve. Good thing you've been keeping track of your real scores and progress from the beginning. This will give you an honest sense of how far you've really come as a golfer when you become good enough not to need any "help."
