In golf, small changes in distance can have big effects on your Strokes Gained (SG) values and overall game strategy. We've noticed that when hole distances are pre-loaded, players often don't modify these values to reflect real-world conditions on the course, which can lead to skewed SG values. However, with Circles, we've made it easy to input and adjust the distances for the courses you play regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How often should I check and update the distances?**

A: We recommend checking and updating distances each time you play a course, especially if the tee or flag positions often change. Keeping your distance data accurate will ensure the most accurate Strokes Gained values.

Q: If I play the same course regularly, should I still adjust the distances?**

A: Yes, even on a familiar course, tee and flag positions can change, altering the hole distance. Always double-check and update distances to maintain accurate SG values.

We hope this guide helps you make the most of our Golf Game app and the distances feature. Please let us know if you have any further questions or feedback. Happy golfing!
