Improve Your Course Management With V1 Game

Time to highlight features you may have missed and show how V1 Game can help you improve. 

So you’ve finished your golf round, logged all your shots, and saved the data… Now what? As you’re about to head to the 19th hole and reflect on the day’s adventures, time to arm you with some analysis. V1 Game’s round summary will get you what you need from advanced to traditional statistics.

Strokes Gained

Using reference data, your golf round will be broken down by strokes gained category to tell you where you truly left the most strokes on the table. Learn which parts of your golf game are the most consistent and which areas lead to your poor rounds relative to a Tour Pro or one of 6 handicap levels.

Round Summary

V1 Game doesn’t stop at strokes gained. We analyze all parts of your performance to tell you exactly why you gained or lost strokes in your golf round. After you have played a few rounds, V1 Game learns your strengths and weaknesses and will highlight where you played poorly and played well. To demonstrate how you can use V1 Game, let’s take a look at how Dallas Webster, V1 Game’s Lead Developer, played recently.

On the course with Dallas Webster:

Referencing the round summary included here, Dallas struggled with his iron game. He made 3 errors with his irons. Errors include hitting into penalties or recovery situations. He also missed the green short 30% of the time. This immediate feedback can aide practice. The first place to start for immediate improvement is ball striking with irons.


Next is driving which also showed a poor performance. The details are clearly shown in the driving summary where driving distance was lower than typical for Dallas and he had a driving error.


The round summary shows an average putting day for Dallas, but highlights he had two three putts and 5 misses inside six feet. Certainly some room for improvement.

Around the Green

Lastly, he had a good day around the green with short game.

In one screen, V1 Game provides you with actionable data on your golf round. We make it easy to figure out what to work on to make the biggest impact to your game.

Your longest drive, average approach shot proximity, feet of putts made… It’s all there.

And more…

And we didn’t forget traditional stats… we’ve also got more traditional stats such as fairways, greens, scrambling, and number of putts. In our case, we consider any up and down opportunity inside 75 yards as scrambling, regardless of whether it is for par or worse.

Three Keys

Lastly, get a quick snapshot of how you did in the three keys. These are three areas that directly impact your ability to score. Minimize these and it will translate to better rounds of golf. In this round it is clear that mistakes were big, a mix of penalties and many missed greens that were expensive. Eliminating these mistakes enables a potential score of 80. Exciting opportunity for Dallas.
