Several months ago we updated our autoadvance algorithm. This new algorithm uses artificial intelligence system backed by Google's TensorFlow framework to pick the right hole for recorded shots. You should see improved hole assignment when using Golf Pad LINK or TAGS.
From time to time, the autoadvance algorithm might mistakenly move you to a different hole before you're done playing the hole you are on. For example, if you hit to the fairway of another hole. It doesn't happen often, but if you do see this, we ask that you share your round with us from the player dashboard. Just copy and paste the link in an email to email@example.com. Include details about what happened. E.g. I was on hole 12, hit my 2nd shot to the fairway in hole 14 and was moved to that hole.
This will give us more information to feed to the neural network and improve the autoadvance algorithm to be even more precise!
Thanks in advance for your feedback. Any other comments, share below. Happy golfing!
Hi Richard - that's great to hear. Thank you for the feedback!
Maybe you should just prevent the app changing the hole until after a putt has been registered on the current hole. I reckon this would pretty much solve any issues with this.
