Your golf club data

The 18Birdies app not only records your personal stats & playing performance, but will also provide individual club statistics that you build over time.

Solid Shot Percentage

Every time you track a shot you can tell the app if you hit a Solid Shot (or not). 

Shot Shape Percentage

To see your average shot dispersion for each club, enter your shot shape every time you track a shot in the 18Birdies app. In your track shot details, select the appropriate directional arrow to track the stat for a fade (slice), draw (hook), or straight golf shot.

More options for your golf clubs in your golf bag

To access more options for the golf clubs in your Golf Bag, tap the "..." in the upper right corner of the Golf Bag Homepage.

How to Retire a golf club

Breakups are hard, but replacing an old golf club with a new one doesn't have to be. When it's time to get a new club, you can retire the golf club from your active Golf Bag. Retiring a club will save all of your stats and data, including Tracked Shots, but you'll be able to start recording new data for your new club.

Retiring a golf club from your Golf Bag will remove the club from on-course Club Recommendations, so be sure to have a replacement club to fill in any distance gaps that are created. 

Have the itch to put an old club back in your bag? You can easily add any Retired Club back to your golf bag at any time. Just head over to the Retired Clubs List on the Golf Bag Homepage.

How to delete a golf club

Deleting a golf club from your Golf Bag will permanently remove the golf club from your profile. 

Tracked Shots are deleted from the Golf Club but are not deleted from the round the shot was tracked in. For more information on fully deleting a tracked shot from your 18Birdies profile, see our support article: Removing a Tracked Shot
