Nice to see that this has finally been resolved and congrats to the winners. However, comparing the first event to the 2nd shows that either The Grint or MSG can't handle this event well. Not only was there a significant delay in the results, the complete lack off communication as to what was happening (if anything) and then also not giving the criteria for how they were chosen (like they did the last time) is a real disappointment.

I understand that this is a free contest and I didn't have to enter. I had never used the Grint app before this contest and was intrigued by it. However, the debacle of this event tells me that I don't want to use it going forward. Good luck to anyone that continues to try in these events (if they happen) you have 1 less competitor now.

This is the first time I joined an actual event/contest, and I agree it didn't go well. We also tried to host a smaller event for a bachelor party, and that proved difficult (gave up on the app before the second round, switched to 18Birdies). I might join another one of these, but events on the app have been very disappointing.

That said, the rest of the app isn't bad, but it depends what you want to get out of it. My team uses it in our league, and it's way better for that purpose. That lets us track how others are playing throughout the round and keep up with things on the team (same is true of other friends that use the app). Plus, it hooks up directly to my WSGA handicap, so anytime I use the app, the scores post automatically and accurately (auto-adjusts for stroke control, tracks 9hole combo rounds, etc.). If I didn't have this use case for it, I wouldn't use it.

The Grint app is pretty good overall and I've used it before but just stopped because I got a Garmin watch that keeps track of all of my stats in a more user-friendly function. Unfortunately I'm getting the impression that this connection with MGS may have just been set up as a download trap.. While it's cool that they're handing out prizes and all, what are we actually competing for? I'd like to think that the rewards were more than just random picks just for getting 100 new people to download the app. 

Anybody have a bottle of Scope that I can borrow?

Have to agree with most of the above comments. I have used TheGrint for several years and loved the initial excitement at MGS when the first event started.

However, the first event was more math related than golf and the 2nd event is still unknown as to how the winner was decided (and several weeks late in that decision). 

I will continue to use TheGrint because it is still the easiest app I found for entering data on the course. Now, that might change if the link to WHS is broken with the new USGA requirements. I am hopeful that TheGrint will be able to work out a solution. Time will tell.

That being said, if the 3rd event is as badly managed as the first two then it will be my last one. Really disappointed in what could have been a great year with the MGS/Grint combo.

Agreed.

 

Just use the best East Office Pools to run all golf tournaments, please do so for The Open. Very simple and fun to do, don't need an app.

There is usually a pool run by MGS for the majors.  The Grint contests are run by the Grint as a sponsor and part of the intent is for people to use their app.  They also choose the rules.
