When you set Aggressive Caddie to ON, Golfshot will guide you towards playing your longer distance clubs and cutting corners on doglegs. High-risk recommendations lead to shorter approach shots and may produce a better score but a misplaced shot could leave you in a hazard. To adjust, open Settings > General > Aggressive Caddie > set to suit your playing style. The default setting is OFF.

You can scroll up or down through the list of all GPS targets on the left side of your GPS Hole View screen. The distance to the center of the green will always be displayed in green near the top of the list. Tap any target in the GPS List and the target icon in the aerial image will move to the hazard or layup you selected. As you progress down each hole the distances to each target will adjust to your current position.

Downloading the aerial images requires an Internet connection. We recommend talking with your service provider prior to travelling internationally to determine the network charges that you may incur through using Internet on your phone. We suggest syncing with the region you are traveling to prior to leaving your home country. This will provide you with the scorecard and GPS information for the courses mapped in the country you are traveling to.
