long or short driving accuracy

my driving accuracy has left and right and centre but no long or short stats: all = 0

Is there a setting for this?

Richard, Antony. Just to expand on the above - If the app thinks you've missed the fairway, then it will only ever select as having missed left or right. Short/long misses on a straight fairway will typically show as having hit the fairway, whereas short/long on a dog-leg will typically show the miss on the opposite side as the dog-leg.

I'm guessing this is probably because the app uses some sort of constant rectangular "hit-box" between the tee and the green to indicate the fairway, so there aren't any breaks on the vertical.

As Cindy said, you'll need to manually edit it to a long/short miss either during the round or afterwards if you want to track those stats. I don't find it ever really impacts on the time to use (although I use my phone directly as opposed to smartwatch or link/tags, so not sure if it would be different there) - once I get to my ball and I'm not on the fairway, I just check the hit/miss marker as appropriate

UPDATE: Golf Pad detects left and right misses automatically, but it can't detect long/short at this time. You can always mark hit or miss type manually: Tracking fairways and sand. Please give it a try and let us know if stats updated accordingly. 

hi there

nothing yet still no long or short


Hi Antony. You'll need to open your own support ticket. Here's the link to get started

Is there a way to join a support ticket or I have to create my own?
