    This data will help us to measure the impact of practice on specific facets of the game and overall performance. The Shot Quality scores for your practice shots feed into your overall Player Quality, but they are valued at a fraction of your on-course shots. We’d love you to try these and tell us what you think!


    Refresh data from source
    If you identify issues with the shot data in a round, you can now edit that round in the source system (currently, Arccos, Golf Stats Lab or Measured Practice) and re-upload the corrected data to Clippd.

    How to refresh data in Clippd

    • Save correct shot data at source (Arccos, Golf Stats Lab and Measured Practice).
    • Log into Clippd.
    • Select 'Activities' and scroll to the round you want to update.
    • Tap edit/pencil icon, top right.
    • Scroll down to bottom of screen and select 'Refresh shots from data source' (see above).
    • Tap 'Save details'.
    • Clippd will then retrieve the updated shot data for that round, recalculate Shot Quality and make updates to your data. A message will inform you when updates are complete.
    • The corrected data will then be reflected in Clippd.

    Trackman reports – new way to upload
    Having listened to feedback on uploading Trackman reports into Clippd, we have added an additional upload method.

    Rather than using the pdf reader, the link on a Trackman report can now be copied and pasted into Clippd. This enables us to be more consistent in terms of the format of the report, date, metres vs yards etc. It also enables us to capture all the relevant data for later analysis.

    How to upload Trackman reports using 'Trackman Link':

    • Copy link URL of Trackman report.
    • Open Clippd and select 'My Profile'.
    • On mobile, scroll to the bottom of the menu and select 'Trackman Link' and 'Add Link' option (see above).
    • Paste the link from your report on mytrackman.com.
    • Clippd does the rest.



    Course database upgrade
    Updates to the Clippd Course database have been made to improve coverage and naming convention. In addition, we have updated the course matching logic to improve accuracy.


    Improved navigation
    Based on feedback, we have introduced the capability to click through to the scorecard view via the 'Latest Round' view and 'Last 5 Rounds' view on all dashboards. This works the same way for Coaches from the Team Dashboard.
