I use GolfLogix free to see how far the pin is.

I'd like to be able to enter each shot and club so I can track distance hit with each club, and other stuff.

Is there a popular golf app like this?

My hands are no longer steady enough for my range finder, so I use 18Birdies. The free version allows you to easily track the most important stats. If you are serious about golf, the pay version is excellent. I especially like the apps ability to determine how far I *actually* hit every club in the bag.

I have really been liking the Taylormade myRoundPro app, especially since there is an app for my Samsung watch. Tracks clubs and suggests based on previous distance hit. Tracks strokes gained compared to pro, scratch, 5, 10, 15, and 20 handicaps. Gives front, middle, and back of green distances, and has pin drop on the phone. I used the phone app only for a couple of rounds and it was pretty good, aside from having to play with my phone in my pocket. Wouldn't be a problem if you were riding.

Is myRoundPro free?  I want to do this:

1) Look up yardage

2) Enter club 

After I hit, and do the same thing on the next shot,

it will have calculated how long I hit the last club.

The Game Golf app does all this for free.  Its what I use.

I've used the Golf Pad app for this on iOS.  It lets you enter clubs and then uses the data to suggest clubs as you play.  Costs $20 per year subscription.  I mostly like it as it works with my Pebble watch.  Also works with Apple watch.

Years ago I used Golfshot.  I liked it quite a bit then. Now that I'm playing again, I defaulted to it but looked to see what else is available now. I tried 18birdies yesterday and it's also good. A little busy in the menus if you're just interested in scoring a round of golf, but it's good.

The one issue I had with it was getting quick GPS updates as I walked up to the tee box from the cart. It seemed to stick at the cart instead of updating where I was as I neared the tee box. I looked all over for a setting to be more aggressive on GPS updates, but I found none.

I used this today.  It took a little getting used to.  At first, to count putts, I had to keep repeating "+", select putter, over and over, for each putt.

That seemed idiotic.  I wish I could just type the number of putts.   I did find the "Add Putt" feature, after you select the putter once.

I clicked VIEW to see the yardage before selecting a club..

I hate how you can't easily edit the scorecard.

Not the best interface, but it's a step up from Golf Logix since it can track each club length.

Thanks.

The nice thing about Game Golf is the ability to adjust the round on your computer after you finish.   Some times I tag the shot a couple times because I wasn't sure if I did it the first time.   Easy to correct on your computer.

What do you mean "tag" a shot?

I used Game Golf again today.

I got used to the interface and it was fine.

I only wish I could just enter the number of putts.

In order to capture yardage of my approach iron, I go to my ball on green and select putter.

But, after that, the phone stays in the pocket.   After I putt out, I then drag "add putt" a few times to end the hole.

I have the Game Golf tags on each club.   I don't use my phone at all.   I touch the club to the Game Golf device on my belt and it notes my location.   I don't use the app for distance, I have a range finder.   Once I get home, I hook the device to my PC and it uploads the round where I can make adjustments to the round, like first putt distance or delete a double tagged shot.

I do the exact same thing.

And then after the round, ill go on a PC and edit the added putts and place the pin in the correct position to the best of my recollection.  Editing the round afterwards is an important part of the process to me.  Reviewing every single shot of the round helps to reinforce each shot and creates a better understanding of the underlying data for the analysis and statistics.  And then after the round is edited, I always go to insights and at a minimum take a look at strokes gained for that round against different benchmarks.  

It truly is a great thing to have all that data about your golf game.  Even four or five rounds is enough to get some real insight into how you actually play.

I also have the tags on my clubs, but just prefer to enter each shot on my phone.  I already used it for distances, so it was easy to just also tag the shot there.  Didn't like worrying during the round whether i missed a tag or double tagged something.  It's all right there.

    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
    • So do you need the club that fills your stated clubs to hold greens (are you going to hit into the greens / all carry)? Or are you fine with some roll out? Hold greens > properly fitted hybrid ~19/20 degrees loft. Some rolll out ok / does not hit directly into a green > properly fitted 5 wood/~17-18 degrees loft. 
    • I would love to see Tiger start to use one of these  
    • First of all, nice job with getting a bit more on plane going back. The club isn’t going nearly as much to the inside which is good. I’d take screenshots of where you are at A2 and keep tracking that so you can be sure you are starting back on plane. Overall, you are trending the right way here! I don’t really think the head movement is anything to be focusing on. If anything, it is a symptom of the OTT move and not a cause. The more important thing to notice about the transition is the shoulder move and what exactly it is accomplishing and then working back from that a little bit to find the root cause. What I see is a shoulder move in transition that is a compensation for your pretty flat shoulder turn. Look at how flat your shoulders are at the top of the backswing and then look at how much steeper they get right after you start the transition. The answer to this might very well be what @iacas was suggesting by nudging you towards working on your torso turn in the early backswing. That should help get your shoulder turn to be a bit steeper. Before you start true downswing/transition thoughts or work: backswing, backswing, backswing.
