How Does Elevation Change Affect Plays Like Distances?
This is the elevation difference between where your ball is sitting and the green (or the intended target).
18Birdies will take into account that shots to an elevated target will naturally play longer than a shot on flat ground and shots to a downhill target will play shorter than a shot on flat ground.
To manually adjust the Elevation for your next shot, slide the dot up to indicate the landing area will be higher, and slide the button down to indicate the landing area will be lower.
