WRX Spotlight: The Wolf Scorecard App



Product: The Wolf Scorecard App

What is Wolf?

Wolf is played with a foursome where new teams are created on every hole. At the beginning of the round, it is decided who will open as the ‘Wolf’, a role which will then alternate between the four players after each hole.

After players tee off on the hole, the wolf on the hole can choose a partner or choose to play alone for that hole. Should the wolf or the partner win that hole, then both players will be awarded two points. If the wolf and their partner lose, then the other two members receive three points. Should the ‘lone wolf’ beat the other three players on that hole then the wolf wins four points. Any player who overcomes a lone wolf on the hole is awarded one point.

With the Wolf Scorecard App, the app will handle the rules, points and scores so you can enjoy playing the fun game with your friends easily.

Last week, I talked to the creator of The Wolf Scorecard App, Rod Biresch, to ask him a few questions on his Wolf app:

How did the Wolf App come about, what was the inspiration behind its creation?

Rod: I’ve been playing the game Wolf for almost as long as I’ve been playing golf. Back in 2016, I was playing wolf with a group of close friends. At one point on the back 9, I realized there was a mistake made with the score and tee order. A good friend of mine got a little frustrated and said, “Rod, you build apps…why not build something for Wolf”? Now, this was not the first time we messed up playing wolf, but it was the final straw. In Dec. 2016, I decided to use some vacation time and built the first version of the Wolf Golf Scorecard. It was released early 2017.

What’s the advantage of the Wolf App for players wanting to play the game? 

Rod: One big advantage using the Wolf Golf Scorecard app is that it will track the player tee order for you. Wolf requires a tee order rotation on every hole, which can be top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top depending on the position of the Wolf (first or last). Tee order is the #1 question asked on almost every hole, e.g. “Who’s Wolf?”, “Who do I follow?”, “Who tees off first?” Another advantage is the recently added feature to reorder the tee for holes #17 & #18. This was a requested feature that gives the user the option to change the tee order to allow for player(s) with the least amount of points to be wolf to hopefully make up ground on the competition. This turned out to be a great feature and added a lot of fun/banter to the game.

Do players need to be connected to the internet for the App to work?

Rod: No internet or cellular data required. I really wanted to be able to have the app work in the most remote places that may not have cell signals. Also, if you have an old phone or tablet that does not have a SIM card, then the app could work without issue.

Is the App aimed at a specific group of golfers, or is it universal?

Rod: The app was built for golfers who like to play games while playing golf. It’s really for all golfers.

Can players trial the game before purchasing the App? 

Rod: At this time, the app does not support a trial. I like to tell golfers that the app is the cost of 1 domestic beer, but the enjoyment will last much longer! 

What has been the reaction to the App from users so far?

Rod: The reaction I’ve received from users has been overwhelmingly positive. I often get contacted by people requesting new features to make Wolf more enjoyable. One fun thing was to add a wolf “howling” sound when the user taps on the player that wants to go lone wolf. A friend of mine will NOT tee off until he hears the “howl” when he goes lone wolf. Again, making things fun on the golf course. I have had many requests for an iOS version of the app. That work is underway and I hope to have an iOS version out sometime in 2021. Until then I tell iOS users that if they have an Amazon Fire Tablet, then they can download the app from the Amazon Appstore. Or, just use an old Android phone/tablet and download it from the Google Play Store.

Our thoughts on the Wolf Scorecard App

For starters, Wolf is one of the most fun games to play on the golf course, but keeping track of the intricacies of the game while fully focusing on your play can be tricky. With the Wolf Scorecard App, all of that stress is removed.

Visually the app is fantastic and not overly complicated; tracking your scores, points and payout with a ton of cool custom options and allows for a great user experience.

The app allows you to break the game down into separate nines, features the ‘Blind Wolf’ option, which will multiply point values (a player calls “Blind Wolf” on a hole before anyone tees off), and even includes a fun howling wolf sound when the lone wolf is selected which can be turned on and off.

As Rod stated, no mobile data is needed to play the game, which is a great bonus if your course is in a remote area, as is the fact that there are no ads whatsoever which makes the experience much more enjoyable than you get with other golf apps. In addition, there is zero lag on the app, and it is fast and super easy to use.

The app is available on Google Play and the Amazon app store at a price of just $4.99. If you’re a fan of Wolf, you will simply adore this and will likely play the game far more than you normally do, and for those interested in playing for the first time, this is the perfect introduction to a complicated game made simple by the Wolf Scorecard App.

Titleist launches Pro V1 RCT (Radar Capture Technology) golf balls



If you’ve hit golf balls indoors on a TrackMan, you’re familiar with the annoyance of orientating a ball’s reflective marker for tracking.

Beyond the inconvenience of tinkering with every ball before hitting, the current “position the sticker” system is far from perfect — if you don’t orientate the ball the right way, the sticker is damaged or has fallen off, spin numbers will be estimated, and thus, less accurate.

And while this phenomenon is bothersome to the golfer beating balls on a TrackMan indoors, it’s even more problematic for indoor fitters who rely heavily on spin numbers and accuracy in peak height, roll out, carry distance, and more to make their club and shaft recommendations.

Fortunately, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls with Radar Capture Technology (RCT), launched today, offer a solution and provide the most accurate ball flight information possible (more on the 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x here).

“Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls combine the game’s greatest combination of speed, spin, and feel with new technology that more consistently captures precision performance and golf ball data from TrackMan units used in an indoor setting,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “We have worked closely with TrackMan for more than two years to optimize this embedded radar reflective, patent pending technology. The result is a reliably strong ‘signal’ that enables spin capture on all shots.”

Years in the making, these golf balls have the same performance characteristics of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. According to Titleist, golfers can play them outside, if they’re so inclined, and they won’t notice a difference in performance, and RCT balls conform with R&A and USGA rules.

It took Titleist and TrackMan engineers years of collaboration to develop a technology that would both stand up to the wear and tear of a golf ball in an indoor environment and return 99-plus percent signal capture.

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls will be available through authorized Titleist trade partners in North America and EMEA, as well as beginning Nov. 3, Global distribution will follow in April 2022. $64.99/dozen.

Team Titleist produced this Q&A to answer additional questions regarding the RCT balls.

‘It’s the perfect club’ – GolfWRXers discuss Callaway’s new Apex UW utility wood



In our forums, our members have been discussing Callaway’s new Apex UW utility wood. WRXer ‘CopeGolfer’ is interested in hearing from members who have hit the club, and plenty of WRXers have been sharing their very positive early experiences with the UW in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • XanderSingh: “I took mine out for the first time yesterday! I have it shafted with an Atmos Blue 8x. I have a 21 degree to go up against my 7 wood. I really like it so far; it’s much easier to work and flight the ball than my 7 wood. Also should mention that I’ve never gotten along with hybrids. I would equate it to fairway woods that I played as a junior (early 2000’s). Also, I think it’s for everyone really; my friend who is an 18 handicap hit it a few times and really loved it. So much that he picked up a 17 degree on his way home to replace his 4 wood.”
  • PowerCobra98: “I’ve had mine for about a week now. It’s the perfect club. Really the best of both worlds between fairway and hybrid.”
  • mootrail: “Got Mine! Looks fantastic! Easy to hit, centered every one and feels hot and solid (off the mat). I settled for the Project X as I didn’t want to wait but seemed decent at the shop. From address, it reminds me a lot of my Nickent 3DX Utility DC which was exactly this; a cross between their fairway and hybrid. Beyond that, it’s miles different. Mats and launch monitors are meaningless to me; I can’t wait to get it out on the course! I will say it sets up open, launches low and definitely seems anti-left; exactly what I’m looking for.”
  • QuigleyDU: “This club is awesome. I am completely smitten.”
