* You will notice a difference in the way Golf Genius scores the sweeps games versus what you are use to.
* For games like O.N.E.S., T's & F's, Par 4's, Play the Middle, Mutt & Jeff, etc., Golf Genius will pop the holes used in the game, resulting in a game net score.
* For games like IF and Three Blind Mice, where holes need to be compared to determine the best/worst - the best score is relative to par - so if you get a 3 on a par 3 and it is compared with a birdie 4 on a par 5, Golf Genius will keep the birdie 4 even though it is higher than the 3.
* We will no longer be able to play any game that requires the player to make a substitution, e.g., Alibi, Poker, Odd & Even, Front or Back, Best Consecutive 9.
