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.

    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings. 
    • I don't know enough about his situation.  Maybe not immediately -- he wouldn't qualify for the PGA Championship or the FedEx Cup playoffs (you can't earn points as a non-member, which he is for this event).  But probably by end of summer to start the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as a member.  Unless I'm forgetting someone, he'd be the third amateur to win a PGA Tour event in my lifetime (Verplank, Mickelson). 
    • Thanks.  I figured I would have heard by now if it made a difference, but I'm glad to hear it just the same. I tee off in just over three hours for my first round with the game golf.
