How do I track drive distance with GolfLogix app?

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
