Here is a step-by-step tutorial of how to use the Shot Tracking feature on Android using (version 14.15 or later) and iPhone. 


This article describes how to track shots, so you know every shot's distance, can review them on the map, share with friends and analyze statistics over time. To learn how to keep score without tracking individual shots, click here


Android Shot Tracking


Shot tracking is turned off by default. First, enable Shot Tracking from Settings (gear icon in the upper right) on the home screen. 



Once your round is started, you'll see a screen like this. All your tracking tools are at the bottom of the screen. 


To track your shots for a hole, press the track shot  button (highlighted below) before you hit your tee shot.



Next, you'll see a screen like the one below. Choose "tee shot" and club. You can check the box for "do not show this prompt" if you prefer to record your clubs later or if you only want to track your score. If you need to add or edit the available clubs, tap the gear icon in the upper right (or use club settings from the Golf Pad settings list). Once you finish making changes, tap the back button to return to the previous screen.



The position of your tee shot is now recorded, you should make your swing and walk to where your ball lands. Once you are at your ball, repeat the tracking process by pressing the track shot button again. You will see a screen similar to the one we started with, the distance of your tee shot will be shown and the beginning point of your second shot has been locked in. You are now ready to make your second swing on this hole. Repeat these steps until you reach the green. 


Putting


Configure your putt tracking preferences in Settings > Shot Tracking. You can choose to track location for all putts, first putt only (helps with recording the accurate distance of approach shots), or don't track locations for putts at all (putts will be shown in the middle of the green in map view). 



Additional Options


We've add several features to help make tracking easier. Tap the three vertical dots on the lower right to access the menu shown below. Use these as needed throughout your round. For example, 'Stop tracking on this hole' is useful if you prefer to stop tracking for the remainder of the hole, e.g. if you forgot to track a few shots and just want to record the score for the hole.




Setting the clubs used once you have completed a hole


In order to set the clubs, lie types or adjust location for each shot, tap on the blue score box to bring up the shot list screen (below). You will see each of the shots made for the hole and the distances associated with them.



As you can see in the picture above, each shot prompts you to 'Set club'. You can also tap the + symbol to add additional shots if needed, or swipe left-to-right to remove shots. Hold and drag a shot to reorder. Additional options are available from the three-dots menu for each shot. 


When you select a shot to set the club you will see the screen below that contains the clubs you currently have 'In Your Bag'. If you need to add a club, go to Settings > Club Settings > tap the blue '+' icon in the lower right and follow the steps. 



Once you have selected a club, it will be highlighted in blue. Select the arrow button in the bottom right corner and repeat this process for each shot from the hole. You can un-select by tapping the selected club.

iPhone Shot Tracking


Here is a step-by-step tutorial of how to use the Shot Tracking (plus location) feature on your iPhone. We are working on updating the iPhone tracking features to match those of Android. The interface shown below will soon be replaced.


We are going to take you through a virtual hole and show you each step in the process.


The first step to tracking your shots for a hole is to press the shot+location tracking button (highlighted below) before you hit your tee shot.


The position of your tee shot is now recorded, you should make your swing and walk to where your ball lands. Once you are at your ball, repeat the tracking process by pressing the shot+location tracking button again. You will see a screen similar to the one below, the distance of your tee shot (circled) will be shown and the beginning point of your second shot has been locked in. You are now ready to make your second swing on this hole.



Once you have walked up to where your second shot has landed and repeated the process for shot+location tracking you should see a screen that shows 3 shots have been totaled for your score so far on the hole and is displaying your previous shot distance.


This example hole is a par 5 so our next shot will be a putt from the green. There are two ways to record your putting when you are using shot+location tracking, the first is to continue the same tracking process you have used for the previous shots and to set the club used as 'putter' at the completion of the hole. You can also use the '+putt' button (circled below). This will record that the next strokes added are indeed putts but the location will be automatically set to the center of the green so there will be no distance data for these putts. To include distance data for your putts continue with the same shot+location tracking method.





Repeat the same putt recording process you used for your previous putt until you get the ball in the hole. For this example hole we recorded two putts so our completed hole looks like this.


Setting the clubs used once you have completed a hole


In order to set the clubs used for each shot, tap on the blue score box to bring up the shot list screen(below), you will see each of the shots made for the previous hole and the distances associated with them. 


As you can see in the picture above, each shot prompts you to 'Set club'. When you select a shot to set the club you will see the screen below that contains the clubs you currently have 'In Your Bag'. 



Once you have selected a club, it will be highlighted in blue, select the 'Next Shot' button in the bottom right corner and repeat this process for each shot from the hole.
