Plays Like Distance (iOS only)

Many golfers face the challenge of selecting the right club for each shot, leading to inaccurate shots and higher scores. With the current availability of horizontal distance measurements, golfers may still struggle due to factors like slope, ball position, and lie, collectively influencing the actual distance the ball will travel. This variation in distance is commonly referred to as the "plays like distance".

For instance, a hole may measure 120 meters/yards from the golfer's location, but if it's downhill, the shot may actually play closer to 100 meters/yards. And this Premium feature is here to help!
