Leaderboards are a feature that allow you to compete against other Shot Scope users. You can compete against against your friends, members of the Shot Scope team and any user across the world.
There are set leaderboards that you are automatically entered into once you have opted in and there is also the ability to create private leaderboards that can be for a group of friends or work colleagues etc.
In all leaderboards you compete over certain stats such as Driving Distance and Longest Putt Holed. To see what other stats you can compete over, opt in and check them out for yourself.
If you don't opt into the leaderboards feature then none of your stats or details will be shared with anybody. You can opt out at anytime.
