Our algorithm takes into account the impact of global elevation or altitude of the golf course on ball distances. We also take into account the elevation differences on each shot to fine-tune at its best the club selection.
Our algorithm takes into account the temperature planned for your round at the moment you created your game plan. The effects of wind are also taken into account when playing with the Live caddy. (a data connexion is then needed on the course)
Remember the algorithm calculates the plan for your objective or better. The less risky sequence for your objective and the most rewarding one will be available soon.
Simply send an email to Eldrick. He's able to send you a copy of all data we store for you.
Hello Birdie can be used for any golfer from minimum 32 handicap to scratch! Even pros who do not have a professional caddie would find it useful as a complement to prepare their round preparation.
Hello Birdie is a personalized yardage-book for golfers.
It will help you define you own strategy on any golf course in the world to help you score better!
Hello Birdie is also a FREE golf GPS and scorecard, and can also work similarly to other golf apps or GPS watch that don't have a virtual caddie feature. You may also use it as a complement to a rangefinder.
Hello Birdie does NOT need any electronic devices to track your shots. We recognize the position of your shots automatically from your shotlist.
Isn't life more beautiful on a golf course?
Hello Birdie will help you take better choices before the round and setup the best strategy to reach your goals and get closer to your maximum potential.
It will allow you to score better by helping you erase tactical mistakes, and removing any doubts - or temptations - just like you would while playing with a really smart caddie on the course.
Hello Birdie is currently including the following features :
- a golf round manager to manage your rounds
- a step-by-step game-planning tool to check the best tactics on any hole according to your golf capabilities. Our predictions are using the most powerful data intelligence algorithm ever made for golf !
- a shot-tracker to use during the round, that will allow you to track your GPS trace and golf clubs used without any electronic device. Using this feature will automatically update your performance data to help our artificial intelligence define better plans for you.
- a bag manager so you can control the clubs you will be using, and if you have a good knowledge of your performances with each club - if you have a complete Trackman datasheet for example - then you may decide to specify this data into the app for better predictions.
- a profile & settings section to manage your own data
And much more is coming...
You will enjoy golf much more if you have less reasons to complain about yourself, especially about taking the wrong decisions, right? Sounds familiar?
Golf is a game of risk & reward. The more risks you take, the higher it can pays but sometimes, and actually quite often, the higher it costs... If you want to find solutions to score better and remove those ugly double-bogeys from your scorecard, then think a little bit how easier it could be with the right strategy. Did you know that a typical 15 HCP player playing a 450m Par-5 has actually about twice as much chances to take a GIR with 3 x 7-iron than with Driver-Hybrid-Approach ??? From the overall score you are aiming for, Hello Birdie automatically determines on which hole you should play for an objective of birdie, par, or bogey, according to the probabilities you will have to reach that score on each hole of the particular course you will be playing. Of course, you can adjust any hole objective to your preferences. On each hole, Hello birdie finds out what club-sequence should ensure you the best results, which tactical choice will give you the optimal odds to score an objective, or better. The predictions calculated when creating a round can take about 15-20 seconds to compute, and we are working of reaching even faster results. Be aware that the best tactics predictions for you are computed from a very large number of simulations, more than hundreds of thousands for a single hole, with your profile. Our algorithms are based on your own capabilities, if you tracked enough rounds, or if you setup your own performance data for each clubs ; or by a prediction of you capabilities based on players similar to you if you did not track enough rounds yet. HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY

That's easier than a shot from a deep rough, isn't it?
Greenkeepers are great people, they will sometimes change the setup of their courses for some good reasons most of the times. Even if we have a great database of golf courses, sometimes it can take a while so that we have the info! You can let us know what golf course is not perfectly mapped and we will shortly make the update available. It is usually taking up to 48-72 hours. Thanks for letting us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you enjoy your rounds of golf with no phone perturbations.
Right now, there is one constraint : just be sure to start tracking your round by clicking on the "Start tracking" button before your loose the internet connection, and come back online when you will click on "Submit scorecard".
