It would be nice to have Modified Stableford scoring.  Actually, I didn't even know this was a thing until I set up a Stableford scoring event and it wasn't what I expected.  Then I researched Stableford scoring and learned that what I expected was actually Modified Stableford Scoring. 

The Stableford Scoring system makes sense for bad golfers as the worst you can score is a double bogey.  But for a video game, it bears the same results as basic Stroke Play scoring because triple bogey is very rare.  Modified Stableford Scoring rewards risky play.  An Eagle and a Par beats two birdies.  Birdie and Bogey beats two Pars.

So, can HB add Modified Stableford Scoring to the available formats?

TGC1 Courses:

Yes, you are right and it would be good. As you said, at the moment stableford scoring is no different to standard stroke play scoring.
