'Match Play' is a scoring system in which a player/team compete against each other hole-by-hole. Golfers are awarded points when they win a hole. The team/player who wins the most holes wins the match.

After searching your golf course tap 'Start Round' to open the 'Round Setup' screen. Turn the 'Match Play' toggle ON and '+Add' golf buddies to your round.
You and your friends will be organized in different teams (A and B), depending on the total number of players (2,3 or 4).
It's time to decide if you want to play with 'Net' or 'Gross' points. To use the first option, and consider the difference between handicaps, please turn the 'Net' toggle ON. (Click here to know more about Match Play Handicap).
Drag your friends' photo to change the teams (this is only possible when the slot is already taken) or tap on it to edit their information or to remove them from the match.
When everything is set correctly tap 'Start Round' and enjoy your game!
During a round, you can concede a hole to your adversary (admit that the other player won without actually finishing the hole). To do so, select 'Concede Hole' on the top-right corner of the scoring screen.
Track the teams' scores in real-time. Simply rotate your iPhone if you have 'Portrait Orientation Lock: OFF' or tap the bottom button to open options and then 'Scorecard'.
