  1. what should i work on

    Is it possible, given the stats available to make a recommendation (may be top 2 or 3 ideas) of areas of game to work on. It would be nice for the system to use all it knows to make these recommendations, eg shots into green from 100-75 yds is weak etc. Whilst I know this data is there, to have a routine that sought this out to highlight attention would be great.

    • Handicapping feature

      It would be good if Game Golf could have the facility to adjust handicaps,
      I'm currently using Golfshake.co.uk to record scores and adjust handicaps but would prefer to use Gamegolf

      • More types of CHALLENGES

        Some ideas to add for the Challenges section.

        Best fairway percentage
        Best scrambling percentage of, at least, 4 rounds
        Best sand save percentage
        Best scoring on par 3's
        Best scoring on par 4's
        Best scoring on par 5's
        Best fairway wood hitter (NOT by distance, but by % of the shots close to the pin, GIR or less than 5 yds to the pin)
        Best long distance hitter (the same for hybrids, 4 or 5 irons)
        Best medium distance (7-9 irons)
        Best short gamers (PW - LW)
        Driving accuracy least -right and left distance to fairway.

        Badge ideas:

        • Previous rounds played filter

          Would like the ability to filter my previous rounds played by more than just the last 10, 20, etc. and be able to see my scoring/stats by month or even week if I get out multiple times. This allows me to see more finite improvement over a season.

          • Add grid layer to course map on greens

            When I'm playing some tournaments I'm given pin sheets. Just like a professional yardage book has a grid layout on the greens [typically in 5 yard increments] there could be an option on the map to toggle on/off that 5 yard grid to better pinpoint the hole location as needed. This could be an alternative for or until a solution happens for hole location through tagging.

            • Adding information about the altitude / elevation profile of the played hole / course.

              For example, my local course got a Par3 (165 mtr / 180 yards) with an altitude difference from teebox to green of around +/- 25 mtr (+/- 27 yards).
              It's obvious to all experienced golfers that when hitting uphill, you need to hit more club and when hitting downhill, you need to hit less club.

              With a profile view of the elevation I think it would give you also a good idea for (future) course management - not everywhere you have the same altitude level on the fairway...

              • Best Approach Shots

                Analysis of shots into the green and where you make the most birdie conversions. For example, do most of my birdie conversions come from approaching the green with my 8 iron and least with my PW. Therefore I can change strategy and lay up to 8 iron distance rather than PW.

                • Ability to turn off Beep

                  I believe it would be beneficial to be able to remove the beep sound. It is very distracting to other players

                  • Add a digital display of the distance of the last club hit

                    Have the main unit display the distance hit on the last club after tagging a new one. This would allow you to build an idea of the distances during a round.

                    • Calculate distance to pin for GIR

                      Manually editing the pin location in post edit, would be nice to see an average first putt distance to hole. The PGA called it proximity GIR but now I think it's called something else. This data could also be used to calculate SGP (strokes gained putting). love the system!

                      • Add a small LCD to tagger to display last club played

                        Add a small LCD screen that would display the last club you played and how many times in succession it was hit. This makes it easier to determine whether you correctly tagged your club or not.

                        For example

                        Tagger is powered on, no hits as yet so display has no clubs registered.

                        Hole 1 par 4
                        After 1st tagged shot display reads - D (1)
                        After next tagged shot display reads - 7I (1)
                        After next tagged shot display reads - P (1)
                        After next tagged shot display reads - P (2)

                        Hole 2 par 5

                        After tagging - 3W…

                        • I would like to enter the following data for my round. Which ball I was playing, and course conditions.. Wind, Wind direction!!

                          I posted my first round today and Love the device. I would like to indicate what ball I used for that particular round for that course as I change ball due to conditions! Also a feature to take into account the conditions at the course such as Wind! Some of my drives were only 200, (into the wind) and some were 260! I want to take into account what wind velocity and direction to take into account distances! ;) so much fun!!

                              Hello everyone,

                              It’s great to hear such enthusiasm from the community about searching for other golfers by location.

                              We’re working on something really interesting right now. We’ll keep you guys posted on this topic over the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

                            • pga pro inclusion for lessons/training per club

                              Have stats to share with the PGA Pro you're working with so they can see your game(s). Each club should have running stats - be able to pick a club to see it's performance.

                              • Best Round...Ever!

                                Think it would be interesting to see what you best round ever would be by taking your best score on each of the holes on a chosen golf course and combine them into your potential best score ever. Would be then good to see how that score was made up to determine if the use of different clubs off the tee and into greens would facilitate improved general scores.

                                  • How about a "What's in my bag" feature like Golf Digest?

                                    Golf digest typically shows what clubs each pro carries and how far they hit each one. Here's an example for Miguel
                                    Angel Jimenez:

                                    It would be great to see the yardages for our whole bag at once, maybe with minimums, averages, and maximum distances for each club. The software could identify the biggest gaps, where you might need to add a club, or the smallest gaps, where you could drop a club (on a percentage or yardage basis). From a social linking perspective, you could compare your bag to someone elses bag. I suppose if you clicked on…

                                    • Additional Information in the Hover Box

                                      When I am looking at mine or a friends shots, I am able to hover over any shot and get a dialog that shows some information. I would also like to see the distance to the center of the green in this dialog. This would allow us to quickly locate trends where we think we can hit a club further than we really can.

                                        • Could we add a scored card to the App, this could then sink with the round once loaded.

                                          This would be really useful, it would mean i don't have to run a separate scoring system while playing.
