Golfers may keep one or two types of scores in their FairGolfMatch.Com records. A Summary Score consists of the golfer's score for a round, plus the total number of pars, birdies, eagles, bogeys, and "unmentionable" scores the golfer makes during the round. Summary Scores can be entered if a golfer only wishes to enter enough basic information to keep a current Golfer Rating. All FairGolfMatch.Com subscribers can enter Summary Scores in their scoring records.
FairGolfMatch.Com members who also subscribe to PersonalGolfStats.Com can enter Detail Scores for each of their golf rounds. Detail Scores include scores and details about a golf round on a hole by hole basis. Details include score by hole (birdies, pars, bogeys show up as different colors on the scorecard), putts per hole, greens in regulation, fairways hit, drive length, penalty strokes, sand traps hit into, sand saves, etc. Detail Scores can be entered if a golfer wishes to maintain detailed statistical golf records about his game by date range or number of rounds played, as well as keep a current Golfer Rating. Statistics are also shown on the detailed golf scorecard for each round played. Golfers must also be subscribed to PersonalGolfStats.Com before they can enter detail scores on the FairGolfMatch.Com web site.
Entering a Detail Score in FairGolfMatch.Com automatically generates a Summary Score as well. If a golfer initially enters a Summary Score for a round, he can later enter a Detail Score for the same round. If the Detail Score results in a change to the original Summary Score, the Summary Score will be automatically updated to match the Detail Score.
