    Shot tracking is only available in the paid version of TheGrint. I have no idea about SG18 stats.



    However, as a free member, you do get to try shot tracking free for one round. I tested shot tracking in multiple apps and found that I don't care for it in any app because it requires more interaction for every single shot. The extra distraction is not worth it. That is clearly a case of my personal preference.



    I've tried at least 5 different iPhone apps (TheGrint, 18Birdies, SwingXSwing, Hole19, GolfNow and BirdieApps) because I wanted to determine my favorite. TheGrint is the winner. 18Birdies comes a distant second because TheGrint does such a great job with the yardage interface.



    In my personal option, the primary benefits are:
    • Easy to use interface for measuring distance
    • Very accurate GPS
    • Free USGA handicap
    • Access to nearly any course
    • Support for both Google Maps and Apple Maps (on iPhone)


    All of the above are available for free! However, I pay to be a premium member because they deserve it. Membership is equivalent to a sleeve of ProV1s and I am more than capable of putting a sleeve OB in any given round, so TheGrint is not asking for much image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Yeah I went and threw down the $20 for pro access. Very good app, simple to use as fast. Really like the HC index feature, and also the stats tracking is nice. No SG18, but the only app I know that does that is BeBrassie, and no offense to them... it was a horrible experience as far as GPS and shot tracking. In order to have SG18 done properly, you need to be uber precise with all your shot distances, including putts.



    When I'm golfing, I'm there to have fun (maybe drink a few brews) and enjoy myself. Having to write down or record every detail about my round as I'm playing it makes it very annoying and takes enjoyment away. Post round it's just as bad because then you need to try to remember every shot if you didn't meticulously write it down before hand.



    PS I don't mind the ProV1 investment analogy as I finally went a full 18 holes this weekend with one ball. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    I started using the app a month ago and logged the 5 rounds to get a handicap.



    My friend signed up too.. on 18birdies when we're playing live together, if he puts in a score on his phone, it will sync to mine. Doesn't seem to be doing it on The Grint? Is that correct or am I using it wrong.

    I used free all season. It was great for me

    I tried to use the shot tracker function on the Grint a few rounds. Pretty cumbersome and distracts from the task at hand. I'd love to have the stats but I'm also trying to focus on the round.

    You can use the desktop website to input your scores, after your round. No impact to your round and fussing with a phone. My habit is to update the same day of the round, as all the shots are still fresh in my mind. Works great, and have been gathering stats since 2016!

    I love the social aspect, stats, layout of the Grint .. > @mhawk709 said:

    I love several things about The Grint, but shot input/tracking isn't one of them. The ability to, yes - but I agree that it feels cumbersome. It had been awhile since I used GolfPad, but I seem to remember it feeling more fluid and quick to log shots there.

    For some reason when I post my scores they don’t show up in my activity feed anymore. I’m using Grint Pro. Anyone else have this occur to them?

    It does eventually. I think it might take a bit of time (not sure how long (minutes,hours,days). My most recent round is on there, but I don't think it was immediately post round. Make sure you long press to upload (if on the app).

    Duke i correct.. I posted a round on Sunday, around 7:30pm. It did not show up on my activity feed until today. FYI

    I have the Grint app and really like it for tracking simple stats like fairways hit, GIR, putts plus the scoring/handicap feature. Problem I have, is that you need an "Attest" from someone using the app that plays with you? Mostly i'm stopping by a course on business travel and just pair up with a twosome/threesome. How do i get attest to my score if they don't know what the Grint is or have an account?
