Strokes gained vs. different handicaps

Golfpad does provide some insight on the web view for strokes gained compared to 'other players of similar ability', but that's a little vague.


I really wish it had the Vs Handicap Filter that Game Golf analytics provides, wherein you can select (Scratch, 5 handicap, 10 handicap, 20 handicap, etc) to compare your strokes gained against.

Curt - thanks for sharing your feedback. While it's not on the immediate roadmap, we understand golfers would like it, and it's not off the table. Right now, we're actively working on features like greens undulations and contine to add more automatic distance to hazards, both significant undertakings. Also, we have another big update coming soon, addressing another huge feature request. 


We value your input and take each major undertaking one step at a time with our available resources. Thanks for understanding, and your continued support means a lot to us!

Someone from Golfpad commented on this THREE YEARS AGO saying this was a feature they were planning to add... So where is it? This is a badly needed feature. I don't really need to know how I compare to the pros. I will never be a pro. At least get this to compare to scratch players. Please!

Old thread, but this is really badly needed from a stats point of view.

As a premium user with tags for a number of years I love how good the tracking is but it would be great if you could compare your strokes Gained against different handicaps like is available in other systems? Scratch, 5, 10, 15 etc Please say this is on the horizon soon

To increase my stroke strength, I am using Pinpoint Golf. This app helps me to track and improve my strokes.

Just wanted to say I would really love this feature. Some of the other apps have this, and would make for great data.

Hi Tim -  Thanks for asking. We do want to support multiple baselines in the future, so it's on our road map. We don't have a conrete timeline on this though. We appreciate you sharing your feedback on the topic. We've noted it. - Cindy

I also like this idea of comparing vs 20 handicapper, for example.


Any update on this?

Yes, it's per hole. Multiply by 18 for strokes lost per round.

A little bit off topic, but on the theme of strokes gained.  I'm a bit doubtful of the accuracy of the current strokes gained (SG) presented.  I've played 4 rounds and across all 4 strokes gained categories in a single round my highest strokes lost is -0.30 and my highest strokes gained is 0.18.  Although I'm a reasonably consistent player in most areas, this doesn't seem right.  Is there a per hole divider in the presented strokes gained results i.e. strokes gained or lost per hole?
