Over the last two seasons I've tried four apps for my android phone which promised to give hole by hole distances & ball stirke distance tracking, I'd actually bought a year to GolfLogix as I had found it the most user friendly while playing a round and was worth the $20/year. I still maintain that its a nice app, but I recently discovered Swing by Swing and found the free version to be even more friendly (simple interface, faster to load hole maps, much more diverse club tracking) and decided to try the paid version ($14/year)... WOW. I would pay more!
The distance tracking is as accurate as a friends SkyCaddy.
The club tracking allows you not just to input what club you used, but also if the shot was a top, chunk, slice, hook, fade, draw, etc... and it does so with TWO total clicks/touches.
However, what really truly astounded me was how the phone app updates the secure website.
I got tour level stats as far as percentages, putts, saves, FIR & GIR, % of total shots which faded or were drawn, % of strikes which faded & drew by club, distances of clubs automatically kicked out any shots selected as tops/chunks, pitches.
Then I discovered this:
It uses a Google Earth overlay of its GPS data and will show you the distance and direction of you shot! ANY shot you tracked. I now know that I'm going to track EVERY stroke I make (save maybe for putts) for posterity if nothing else!!
I was so excited when I stumbled across this I had to call my wife in to check it out and, while she humors my golf addiction in a supportive manner, even she was impressed.
Just though I'd share.
