New Auto-Advance Algorithm for Android

New in Android Version 14.5


Update your app for a new hole auto-advance 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. Choose between new and old algorithm in settings / auto-advance. 


Let us know what you think! This is a big feature update and we need everyone's feedback. If you see any issues, have questions or comments, lets us know.


We should have an iPhone release in the next several weeks as well!

Hi Randy, The version update has already been updated. Check for upgrade to Version 14.5.3

@All - thank you. We are passing this feedback to the development team. We will post additional info after we investigate.

I concur that my app and the Play Store is showing 14.5 for me also with no update available.

Sorry, I forgot I signed up for beta and that must be the reason that I have version 14.5.3, I got my update 19 hrs. ago.

I will be playing later today or tomorrow so I will see if there is any change in the way GP auto advances.

Jon - I just looked at the Play Store from my computer instead of my phone and even though the version listed on the Store is 14.5, if I scroll to the bottom of the page, under "additional information", it states that the app was updated on Sept 8 (2 days ago) and the current version "varies with device". So, I wonder if our devices wont see the update for a while (for whatever reason)? I am using a 2 year old Motorola Droid Maxx 2 - what are you using?

A fairly new Samsung Galaxy S8.

@all - I will follow up with the development team on this. Your feedback is important. I will keep you posted. 

Still showing 14.5 here, updated August 22, 2017.  Android 6.0.1.  OnePlus 2.

I am having the same experience as all above. Not advancing for either algorithm when driving on the next hole and putts not being registered.
I uninstalled and redo loaded the app. How do I see which release is on my phone? I have android on an HTC 10.
HTC One (not 10) which the golf pad info in the App Store says is compatible. App updated 8 Sept 2017 so presumably I have the latest. Will test it in the competition on Tuesday.

Richard, go to Settings (gear icon on entry screen) then scroll to bottom. Click Help to see Version.


I'm still on 14.5 with the standard auto-advance set. For the record my app just seemed wacky today.  I wouldn't see any shots then click on hole to add some and see four shots for the hole that I never set: 2 Set Club shots and two putts...outta nowhere. Have to delete them all before adding my shots.

Thks Jon. The download is 14.5.

We are releasing new android version 14.5.2 with fixes, please give it a try and let us know if that helps.

When will that version be available?
