Tutorial

TeeChartSo, you've installed TeeChart on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Now what?

You can keep information for as many golf courses as you play. For all the tees at each course or just the ones you play.

Follow along to see how easy it is to enter information about the tees at your favorite course. Once you've provided a few key pieces of data, TeeChart is ready to use.

So, you've installed TeeChart on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and it looks (on the iPhone) like this…

Go find the scorecard for your home, or favorite, course. Yes, that's it… go find the actual printed scorecard.

(We'll assume in this tutorial that you're a member at Bushwood Country Club. It not, you'll use the data from your scorecard.)

Repeat tapping Edit to add another tee or modify information about the tees at your course.

You can add as many tees as you like, and you may have two tees with the same name and same color – if a tee is rated for play by both men and women.

Once you've provided the information about your course's tees, you're done. To determine what your handicap (or your partner's or opponent's handicap) should be from a particular set of tees, just tap the name of the tee in the list…
