Hi I agree with the others it would be nice to set the average club length on ALL clubs manually as I don't always hit a good shot with every club
To manually set your typical lengths for Driver and PW, tap the settings icon -> Plays like & club recommendations -> if not enabled, check the box to enable. You will then see typical club lengths at the bottom of this screen, tap to edit. -Jon
When I go to setting all I get is my log in details, I cannot manually set the distances for my clubs
Hello Mr. Trevor Alston -
Thanks for your feedback. Golf Pad provides intelligent club selection advice, based on your playing history, distance, elevation change to target, current weather conditions and altitude, sometimes referred to as "plays like". Just tap the plays like distance on your screen and you will see the 'plays like' details. Learn more about how the Golf Pad PLAYS LIKE feature works.
PLAYS LIKE refers to the distance you would normally need to hit to reach the target under 'regular conditions' at your home course. Do you have your home course set in the app?
As we've stated previously in this thread....Golf Pad estimates typical distances for all clubs and based on PW and Driver entry. Recommendations are available immediately when typical distances are entered for Driver and PW, and then gradually become even more precise with each tracked shot. Golf Pad gives more weight to recent data, so there is no need to manually exclude older rounds as you progress. Unusually short or long shots are also excluded automatically.
Most users let us know they are consistently amazed at the accuracy of the PLAYS LIKE recommendations. Have you tracked shots for several rounds? Improve recommendation quality by tracking more shots using your phone or smartwatch.
We hope you find the feature useful. If you notice the data doesn't look right, please tap 'Feedback' on the detail screen. Then proceed to send the report and include a brief note on what was wrong. This helps us continue to fine tune the algorithms and improve accuracy.
Hi John Owens, please see this article to learn how to manually edit shots: https://support.golfpadgps.com/en/support/solutions/articles/61-how-to-edit-shots-after-a-round-is-finished-
Mike - we've found Driver and PW are the best indicator to provide preliminary data for club recommendations while you collect status by playing about 10 rounds. That's why these two data points are available to manually add average distance if you are just getting started with Golf Pad. Adding these two data points will ensure your club recommendations are relevant.
Why can't we just add in our distances for all our clubs if we know them? (have gapped them etc)
It would be great to have all clubs distances editable.
Hi Cody. I was able to verify that Golf Pad estimates typical distances for _all_ clubs and based on PW and Driver entry. So it will pick a recommendation from all available clubs too. The recommendations are available immediately when typical distances are entered for Driver and PW, and then gradually improved with each tracked shot.
For the latest post - the screenshot shows the user is over 7000 yards away from the flag. Recommendations are not shown if there's no club capable of reaching the distance. You should try again when you are on the course.
Does this help? - Cindy
Hi Cody - have you started with entering typical distances?
To enter average distance manually, go to settings > club recommendations > enter typical club lengths.
I'm checking with my team to verify how the algorithm works while you are collecting your 10 rounds. I know typical club lengths (driver and pw) go a long way to providing good recommendations in the meantime.
Hi Trevor - thanks for your feedback. We've added this to our list of user suggestions for future consideration. - Cindy
Yeah, we need to be able to enter distances for each club. It should definitely learn as time goes on, but setting initial data is crucial.
