How do I track drive distance with GolfLogix app?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I love GolfLogix to see distance to pin and to keep score.
But, how do I use the drive distance feature?
Is there something I press when I get to my ball so it can calculate how far that drive was??

There is a little icon in the corner marked "Track Clubs". press it, choose the club you want to track and hit away. When you get to ball, press it again and you can save or discard.

Not sure if that is on the FREE version, though. it's part of teh standard pay version.

So, at the tee box, I click "track club" and choose driver.

Then I hit.  When I get to my ball, I click "track club" again, 

and it will store the distance I hit the driver?  

 

I can do this with any club, in fact?

If I don't know how far my 6i is going, just click track/6/track and I will have a summary of all my 6i shots?

I find GL club tracking annoying. I use it to track driving distance by just looking at gps numbers and doing the mind math to jot it down on the card.

Pretty much. You can cancel the track if, for example, you clank one and dont think that you want that 128 yard wormburner in your stats. Iron tracking is a bit awkward with GolfLogix. Same method, but getting a definitive distance is tougher because of how it might bounce or spin back, etc... If you use the balls pitch mark instead of overall distance you can probably get a better idea.

I will usually only track my driver on a few holes- especially the wider holes, and only if Im hitting them with reasonable accuracy up to those holes.

I tried to track club today, but it would bring me to the subscription page.

Does club tracking only work for the paid version of the app ?

I believe so. You might have been getting a full version free for a couple of months. Get on the mailing list or set up an account with them. You will likely get an offer to join for $10 for the first year. Save a few bucks. not a bad deal for that money.

I downloaded golflogix hoping to use it to track my golf game but only used it once and then it was only for a couple of holes. (I was riding in a cart instead of walking and was rushed so gave up on it rather quickly)... and am too cheap to pay for a subscription.

 

I then downloaded swing by swing golf's app... I've been using that a few rounds now, it's free, and has a simple to use distance tracker... just hit the track shot icon, up comes a window that says locking in, then it changes to a counter and you see yardage accumulate as you head towards your ball.

 

Not an advertisement, don't have any affiliation to the app makers, just wanted something free to track my game.

 

The app also creates an web page that tracks your stats. I think you can also track FIR, GIR, clubs hit, and such but I've only opened the app, hit the find me and play button and then start. I'll use the track shot button when I think I hit a monster (for me) drive off the tee only to find out it went all of 200 yards (which for me is monster)... and it confirmed for me that my 6 iron goes 150 yards.

 

It will also tell you the distance to the green. I think it may tell you the distance from the green back, middle, and front but I can't remember exactly.
