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!

I had the same issue last night.  Never once did it auto-advance, and I ended up with putter then driver, etc. and had to move the strokes to the next hole, when I forgot to manually advance.  For now, I'm changing back to the old 'auto-advance'.

Using Galaxy S7 (G930V) Android 7.0 security patch Level: August 1st, 2017.


FYI:  the link above in your post only takes me to the 'log in page', and after I log in, goes back to the home page for the FAQ...then I can click your post again, click the link and right back to the log-in page.  (Thus why I'm making the comment here, instead of wherever your link would lead.  


Still very happy with the product, it will only get better when this feature starts working as well.

J.S. Walsh - we are sharing your comments and feedback with the development team. Thank you.

OnePlus2, OxygenOS 3.6.0, Android 6.0.1.  Same thing.  New algorithm not advancing to next hole.  Previously no issue on same course.  5 rounds at the same 9 hole track since Saturday, same behaviour.  On 5 of the holes Driver is in use after Putter.


Maybe if after TensorFlow is done and a new hole is not detected the club selection could be run through the old algorithm as a fall back?

Douglas Smith - thank you for your feedback. We are going to have the team look into this by creating a support ticket. Once we've done that, please reply to the email with your support ID so we can get as many details as possible. 

I have tried the Advanced Algorithm and on my Samsung S8 plus it isn't working very well. I have played two rounds with this update and after completing a hole and going to the next hole and tagging my Tee shot, the shots are not advancing to the next hole but being assigned to the previous hole. This has happened to me all day today on every hole and Saturday on each hole as well? I am reverting back to standard auto-advance algorithm for my next round on Saturday. Using the latest update with advanced algorithm for me has failed causing me to physically advance each hole manually prior to tagging tee shots. And in turn has caused me to use my phone way more than previous.
