Mark Nielsen, Tournament Chair

Mark encourages you to download the Golf Genius app from the Play Store to your phone. When you pick up your scorecard, open the app and enter the GGID, which is printed on your scorecard. The tee number and all the names in your group will appear. Then simply enter the scores when you finish each hole. Easy peasy!
