##Entry Lists

A full list of entrants is exposed in the API prior to the start of an event. Information will be provided at least 48 hours prior to play commencing wherever practicable but within 24 hours before play commences where such information is supplied by the official governing body.

Entry lists are available at Event level in a list for Stroke play and Stableford events. Entries in Match play are provided at Event level but as multiple events.

##Tee Times

For all Tours, tee-off times and groupings are updated in the API as soon as practically possible after posting by the event organiser. Tee times for the next round are supplied at the end of each day’s play, as announced by the organiser, and are exposed at Stage level. Tee times per participant are exposed within the Event Composition (PREMIUM DATA).


Leaderboard data is available at Event level and is updated with collated round scores at the end of each day's play. Some properties per Participant/pairing/grouping are updated frequently during live play where possible.

##Hole-by-hole (PREMIUM DATA)

As the event composition endpoint is the source of premium data, hole-by-hole content will update at the end of each hole that a participant/pairing finishes in a round, or every five minutes, whichever comes first.
