You can now get your buddies to approve and authenticate your rounds. This adds additional validity to your handicap and allows your rounds to be entered into any Events that are run on the golfshake.com site.
The 'Add Round' system allows for an additional step when adding your scorecard. Simply tick the box shown below (Click to have this round authenticated).
When ticked you will automatically be taken through to the screen below. Select an existing buddy, or request a friend not currently using the site to authenticate your round, and the system will send them notification to approve your round automatically.
