And the guy who had #1 and didn't show up... well he's good enough to get it back right when he shows up? For the meantime, he drops to the top of the heap of players not current.
This is an awesome idea.

Hmmm... ScanLife pics it up super fast. Nonetheless, that QR code leads you here where you see that I have virtual tag 16... even though I have traditional tag #2 since I did well last time I played.

Here's a quick list of players and where they stand right now...

Just so I understand, there is no mechanism for reporting a tag swap using the QR code. It just takes you to a tag list. Correct?

Correct. The QR code tags NEVER swap hands... the code identifies the player. So the QR code is more of a player code. Once league results are entered into the system, the rankings are calculated and the code simply tells you where you stand.

My long term vision is to hook up with a scorecard app somehow. The person running league would do a "Start" and scan everyone's tags. Then when the scores are completed, there is nothing left to do. Currently we enter the scores in manually. So no swapping is ever required.

If you wish to challenge someone outside of league, that's what the other tag is for. I'm sure we could build that into the QR code tag as well.

Those are good ideas! What I'm particularly interested in is using the QR code as a quick way to report casual swaps, ie you and your fried battling eachother 36 holes for your tags. If you stay logged in to the site on your mobile device (via a cookie) and scan your new tags QR code it uodates the current tag list.
To take it a step further, you could integrate scorekeeping and GPS location to report a score and course like you mentioned. If you could get this added to an existing app, like udisc, it would be awesome for those of us that maintain the tag list, stats, etc.
