It seems to me that ShotTracker is showing one too many shots when I use it (the Android version, btw). So I'm supposed to click the O+ button in the lower right corner when I tee off to mark where I start the hole. But right away, the score box says 1 0 (1 stroke, zero putts) even though I haven't hit the ball yet. That doesn't seem correct (or intuitive, at least). I stopped using the app after a few holes because it was confusing me.
Am I doing something wrong here? I like the idea of the app, but it this issue became distracting, so I stopped using it. Thanks for the help!
All the shot tracker is doing is preemptively counting your stroke. In order to track shots you have to have the initial starting point so the app just counts the shots right away, partly as a way to show that you have indeed tracked a shot because you don't want to hit a shot walk away from your position and then realize that you forgot to track your location.
This is a problem that I have experienced as well and I don't understand the answer. If I mark before each of my shots to set the location, then when I get on the green, I'm going to have to mark a location prior to putting. That means my putts would have to be one short to make the final score correct. It seems that you would want to have an option to mark the tee location independent of where you end up.
Thanks, I'll give a try next outing. Seems like a lot more clicking, but when I get the hang of it, probably not too bad and more info as well.
