Swingmate. Huh?

Why do people hate (or love) playing golf on World Golf Tour? NO RULER. Imagine driving a car without any gauge, or reading a book without page numbers.

Every time we try to hit the ball, our instinct tell us it's a simple math, distance divided by club. Why not include a calculator to eliminate guessing? So we could spend more time to focus on the "ding".

That was how Swingmate born. Simple idea, but it end up improve our overall games, A LOT.

Tips & FAQs

Believe in your senses.

You can use Swingmate as a starting point, but you’ll still have to do all the hard work of reading the green and clicking the ding yourself. Don't use it unless it makes senses.

 

Tweak it first.

Experiment by playing CTTH (Close To The Hole). Write a notes on Clubs, Balls, Distance, Ball Lie, Slope, Break, etc. Create your own formula for added Yardage & Modifier (mod) value. For example, a full backspin on standard ball with my current iron set, should be compensated with +4 mod, or +2 mod on my wedges.

 

Is it Legal?

We believe so. It doesn’t modify or change how WGT apps run. It doesn't interfere any files, transmission, nor providing auto clicker. Simply put, digital ruler and calculator, combined.

 

Is it Cheating?

It depends. If you're playing a game or a tournament with no tools rules (including calculator), definitely you're cheating. And if you're having a game with a friend, be sure to told them first that you're using swingmate.

 

How Swingmate calculate wind formula?

Read this thread first on WGT forums Wind strengths and distance chart by DarSum. Swingmate use 0.58 as a constant on its formula, with tail wind as default input value. So, for a head wind use negative sign "-". Don't forget to compensate on wind direction. For example, a 30 degree 20mph head wind should be considered as 6mph or 7mph head wind ((30/90) * 20), or -6/-7 on Swingmate. Again, experiment with your current clubs & balls combination.

 

How Swingmate calculate putt formula?

Swingmate Putt Calculator based on a thread from WGT forums A Reliable Putting Distance Formula by bisaacs196. Consider to read it first. By default, Swingmate will adjust putting distance by 2 feets, but you can always change it on preferences. Quoting from the thread "This takes PRACTICE! But mastering this formula will guarantee that you'll almost never three-putt a green again." Common mistake we've made was over/under powered club on Swingmate. Be warned, or you'll have to add 1 or 2 putt more.
