I actually found it easier to do after the round. As for tee shot accuracy there is a spot next to your score and putts for it. It is basically Hit surrounded by Long, Short, Left, Right. You just choose which one happened on that hole. GIR will be calculated by your score and # of putts for that hole. 
I used a scorecard and recorded all the data I needed to post the round at home. 

Did you still start your phone app before you played but then left it alone until you got home?

I saw where to enter the tee accuracy but could not make anything happen when I tried to enter it.

Interesting sounds like a bug or something. If you still have your information and entered you score already you can try deleting it and re-entering it to see if that changes anything.

No I actually just waited until I got home to do everything. My phone didn’t charge the night before so I didn’t have the battery life left to even have it running in the back ground.

Thanks for the tip. I did delete the round and started over. It worked easy enough online. But the instructions to be sure to start the phone app "before" a round is confusing if I'm not going to do anything with it during the round.

I'm not 💯 on it and it is possible I am wrong in doing it afterwards. I took it as you have to choose the tour before you enter your score. Let's tag @GolfSpy_THV and maybe he can clarify for us.

I used the app and I was having the same problem.  I had to turn it on under “Tracking Options” in round setup.  
 

I’m sorry to hear your issues with it.  I started off entering the info as I played and then just finished it after my round.  Maybe it’s something to get used to as I do it, or maybe it is just easier to plan on entering after the round.  Either way, good luck in the contest!

I think your 100% correct in entering afterwards. My awful round is showing up after entering it completely online.

I know we can enter it afterwards but don't know if it is against the rules which is why I tagged THV. Hopefully we are good but if not I will enter a new round next time I play.

Had a thunderstorm on Friday, so the course was rough, but I posted a score lol let’s just say if the metric is for who had the most duck hooks on the front or most putts, I’m sitting pretty lol Beautiful day tho FBE94850-99F5-4A77-89D0-C8B375707147.jpeg.71bc02140c2a5cd0f83a5b1dd308fff7.jpeg

Played terrible but going to enter my round.   Like @artful_golfer I hate doing this type of stuff during the round.  It is definitely distracting and I end up focusing more on the app than my round.

Got my round in and pretty sure it posted. I show up in the Tour Leader Board as D. Lance. Not sure how you get points but I got 0...Not looking good lol. I think I hit a lot of different potential metrics though. Started the day off with a first tee lost ball leading to a double, but did pretty well the rest of the day. Ended with 5 birdies, 25 putts and a total of 75.

Help please. I tried to use The Grint for the first time yesterday. I'm missing something in "the Grint is easy and I love it" part of using it. I really wanted to enjoy this app and being a part of this Grint Tour?

I completed setting up a Grint account along with profile, bag, etc. No problem except it refused to show my correct chosen home course and handicap on the handicap card or score card. It shows a different course in a completely different city plus shows my handicap index much higher than it is.

I had no trouble starting the round correctly from the app on my phone. It looked like I should enter scores as I played so I did. But that was so distracting plus time consuming that I shot my highest score in the 5 years (and I've been playing less than 7).  I had to retrieve my phone from my push cart top storage tray, pull my glasses from their case, open my phone and go through entering the score - and then do all of that in reverse before the next hole.

When entering scores on my phone it doesn't allow me to enter tee shot accuracy. So when I progressed to the screen to upload my score, a warning message appeared that I didn't change my tee accuracy one time, did I really have an awesome driving round? Well no, so I didn't upload my score. I logged on to Grint with my laptop to see if I could do any better.  Editing was better but I thought this was suppose to be simpler.

Since I usually purposely try to not be so gripey, I want to add that even with the distracting issues with the app and ensuing golf errors I created, it was a beautiful South Texas day and I immensely enjoyed our family golf afternoon.

Sorry if it was mentioned before but can you track the round by hand (I typically do this on my scorecard even with arccos) and put it in later? I have always tracked my rounds on the scorecard with putts, misses, penalties etc etc.

A year ago I would have said the same thing, but since we returned post COVID lockdown we’ve been using a scoring app to “mark” our cards and I use my phone every hole anyway. I studiously avoid looking at anything else.

As I mentioned earlier I did it that way but cannot verify if that is copacetic or not.

Yep, you're correct. You need to select the event before you enter your score. The app being on/off is of little relevance unless you also like the gps yardage features it provides on course. 

Regarding tee accuracy, unless I shank it way left/right, I normally leave it as "HIT" in the scorecard. That's the default selection, so don't feel like you need to adjust unless necessary. 

Hopefully that helps @artful_golfer!

Very helpful, thanks. Next round I'll go back to focusing on my game and not see my phone. I'll let Shot Scope record my shots. Then later I'll use that info to post my scores in The Grint. And using your qualifications for a "HIT" I'll leave drives on the edge of the rough as a HIT. Much simpler, thank you!

I know a number of satisfied golfers I play with who use their phone for GPS info and scoring during a round. Each person has different needs and unfortunately, that doesn't work for me. I usually don't even have a pocket for a phone and I'm actually delighted to get away from it for a little while.

I apologize for creating first use issues. But I will happily continue with the Grint Tour!

Remembering one reason why I did not go with TheGrint when I first downloaded it in 2014 now I am trying to get the app set up...

There is no selection in the Your Bag selections for my clubs.  I play older clubs from manufacturers who are not in the selectables for each type of club.  Try looking up Langert for drivers, O'Donnell for hybrids, MasterGrip for irons and there isn't an "other" category either.  So with a mixed bag and only a Dynacraft 7 iron, Wilson 8 iron, and Pinemeadow putter (but not iron's or putter's equipment) in the tracking feature, it is pretty useless for what I am interested in for an app.

Now if a set of Cobras comes my way (shameless hint dropping nudge nudge), I will have to take another serious look at TheGrint, unless they make it possible for me to enter my current clubs to My Bag.

What I use a golf app for is pretty basic, get an idea what each club does for distance, know where to start looking for the ball when I don't see where it goes off the clubface, and keep track of overall round score as a measure of how well I do for the day compared to other days.  2 out of 3 isn't bad but with another app that will do 3 out of 3 I went with that one 7 years ago.
