Statistic Tracking Settings
Keeping intricate stats is by nature tedious and potentially confusing work. Here is some help in explaining and understanding the controls when you click EDIT SETTINGS from your HOME page to adjust your stat tracking categories.
"Auto" means that a stat can be produced as a byproduct of tracking other items. In some cases these stats can be displayed for rounds previously kept in SkyGolf 360. Even if you choose to "remove" or not track stats defined as "Auto" they can be added at a later time IF you are keeping the stats that correlate. Example: Green In Regulation (GIR) will be kept if you keep putts and hole score even if it is not displayed.
"- Hide -" means that a stat may be tracking but it will not be displayed. A hidden stat will be continued to be kept as long as the tracking needed to determine a statistic are being entered by a users. Example: GIR on Par 5's will be kept if you're keeping putts and hole score (on a course with hole-by-hole data) even if you choose to keep that data hidden. You can choose to display it at any time to see the stat.
"Hole-by-Hole" is used to display stats that matter and happen on every hole played. For instance- you'd want to show your putts per hole to see where you 3 putted.
"Total Only" is used to display stats that matter and happen over the entire round but not on every hole. For instance- you'd might want to see what your average putts after GIR are for the full round, but not need to see it hole-by-hole.
"All Scores" means a stat will be displayed for all scores you've entered into SkyGolf 360. (Practice and Scramble Rounds do not count towards these stats.)
"Last 20 Scores" means a stat will be displayed for only the past 20 scores you've entered into SkyGolf 360. (Practice and Scramble Rounds do not count towards these stats.)
"This Year” means a stat will be displayed for only the scores form the current calendar year that you've entered into SkyGolf 360. (Practice and Scramble Rounds do not count towards these stats.)
"Removing Stats" is something you can do by clicking the "X" on the right hand column of the Settings page. Removing Stats is something you may want to do as a housecleaning effort to minimize what you're looking with each score and your overall stats.
"Computer Tracking" is for stats being tracked when you enter your scorecard and stat data into SkyGolf 360 manually TO or FROM your computer (versus m.skygolf.com or from your SkyCaddie through CaddieSync).
"m.skygolf.com" is for stats being tracked when you enter your scores from your mobile device instead of your SkyCaddie or manually on your computer.
Tracking Too Many Categories/Game Management- One of the biggest concerns we've had with the process of what stats to add and what to leave off has been driven by the fact that keeping your information shouldn't be a burden for you and more importantly the people around you. If you try to track 20 stats you're going to spend more time keeping your head on straight than you are on your golf shots. It will take away from your fun and also take away from the fun of others playing with you (or worse yet, behind you). We suggest tracking 3 or 4 stats a round and switching what you track on a regular basis. If you've tracked 30 rounds in SkyGolf 360 your Fairway % isn't going to change much if you track something else for a couple rounds. If you rotate through the stats you will have an accurate portrayal of your game without bogging down the playing experience with tedious bookkeeping.
If it still sounds like maybe you’re not doing the best to accurately track your game, consider this; Driving Distance on the PGA Tour is measured using only two samples per round. Driving distance, something amateurs obsess over frequently is one of the most loosely tracked stats in pro golf.
