Yes, generally. One card for the group, usually passed around so each player keeps score for 4 or 5 holes. I've been playing for almost 25 years and never played an event that used individual scorecards (golf-style).

Just because it can be done, does not mean it should be done.

Hey, I'm not an advocate. As a player, I'm happier with the paper. But I can see benefits to TDs, especially after having checked many hundreds of scorecards over the years.

Many of the guys I have played with in the southeast over the years only play when their close friends that play in their division which is fun but different than golf. I can remember playing golf against friends and others competitively when I was young and it was cut throat with trash talk and gamesmanship. The banter in dg sometimes reminds of the scene in The Campaign when Galifianakis tries to trash talk Ferrell. The things about dg that I really had a difficult time with initially was players not betting during rounds because tags and ratings are treated as the holy grail and the lack of etiquette by players talking and moving during play.
You do realize that the stuffy d-bag atmosphere is a large part of why many of us play disc golf instead of ball golf right?

Yes. I have played about a dozen tourneys (B & C's) and we only had one scorecard for each card in all of them. Only one tourney had us sign them.

In similar level ball golf tourneys, each player has their own card and you exchange on first hole, so each player scores for a different player. Then both scorer and player sign attesting to the score at end of the round.

Amazing how many times the scorecards have gotten screwed up in the limited amount of time I have been playing.

I do know requiring everyone to use an electronic device is not the answer. Keeping score is part of the game.

Interesting. I rather liked the way we did it.

With the current PDGA live scoring, you can view the scores on your phone even if it isn't your turn to keep score, same way everyone else can view the scores as the round is being played. In my experience with it this weekend, the only time one might have to share their phone is to pass it around at the end of the round for players to "sign" their scorecard (tapping their name and entering their PDGA number). However, even that is something that the phone owner/scorekeeper can do themselves with the players just verbally confirming their PDGA numbers for input into the app.

All that said, paper scorecards are not going away any time soon. I can't see the PDGA mandating use of electronic scoring at sanctioned events. Maybe at majors, but no way they do it all the way down the ranks to B and C tiers. This is all about giving tournament directors more options for how they run their events.

We have both in the area and I prefer the one card per person. It will be the same card for the whole event. Kinda fun after the 3rd round to look and see the whole tournament there on one score card.

Either way we've always done it where one person is the card carrier and collects scores then swaps after 4 or 5 holes.

Paper score cards will go the way of the 2 meter rule. There will be holdouts, possibly regionally it will be held on to and stay as an option in the rules, but it will become the norm to use electronic while paper will still be allowed it will be looked down on as a silly affect of the past.

I've done it both ways. For tournaments that are 3+ rounds, individual cards are the way to go. For single round events, they're more trouble than they're worth. One single day two round events, I suppose it comes down to preference.

Why? What benefits do individual cards bring to multiple rounds, that they don't to single rounds?
