This is quite a diversion from my normal activity…a golf scoring mobile application. All the design, photography and concept is mine of course, but I have had the great pleasure to have worked with Loichai studio who have made this dream a reality for me.
I started playing golf just over two years ago and looked for a scoring application to record my results. The ones I found were not what I wanted so I started to record them in my own unique way on a sheet of radial or polar graph paper my father had given me when I was young.
The idea is that the centre of the wheel is a par score of 72 and the outer edge is set at 120. Every time you play you add another point to the curve in a clockwise direction. Ideally, as your scores come down you will create a ‘spiral of improvement’ and eventually hit the centre. I found this visual idea to be such a great incentive to get out and play, that I decided to create it as a mobile application so beginners like me, as well as more established golfers, could do the same.
It has come a long way from my original graph and now looks like this:-
As you add your own courses to the list you colour code them so you can also see progress on those individual courses as well :-
All the information is fully editable so you can add all your past scoring history, add photos, notes and maybe even excuses!
