    1. Create a Player Profile for the golfer. Click the Player Tab and then the ‘+’ button at the top of the ‘Player Settings’ page.
    2. Press the table entry marked ‘Your Name: 0’ and touch the first field ‘Your Name’ and enter your name with the keyboard. Press ‘Save’ to confirm that you are saving your information to your Player Profile.
          • Touch the Handicap field and use the picker to enter your current handicap and the colour of the normal Tees that you usually play from. When you have selected your Handicap and Tees, press ‘Save’.
          • Set ‘Male or Female’ by touching the button.
          • Enter a short name for your home golf club. Swipe up to hide the keyboard.  Press ‘Save’ to ensure that your information is retained.
          • Set the Par Values for your home golf club based on the Tee Colour you have selected. Press ‘Done’ when finished. Par values must be between 3 and 5. After you have pressed ‘Done’, if you open this page again you will see the Par Value for the Course and Tees. i.e. Par: 72 make sure the Par matches your course.
          • Set the Handicap Indexes. Most golfers handicaps don’t change dramatically so if you have a low handicap you only need to fill in the indexes for the holes where you get a shot but we recommend filling in the entire group 1 – 18 or 1 – 9. If you handicap is 16 – 24 you may prefer to fill in only the first 27 holes. Ladies with higher handicaps will need to fill in all of the indexes. The index values should be 0 – 18 for the first tab ‘1 to 18′, 19 to 36 for the ’19 to 36’ tab and 37 to 45 for the last tab ‘ 37 to 45’. We recommend pressing ‘Done’ after entering each set of indexes. Pressing ‘Cancel’ will result in the indexes being left unchanged. Note: If you have a wrong or a zero value on a hole where you receive a handicap stroke stableford and other calculations will be incorrect.
    3. On your iPhone select ‘Watch’ App and and find Golf X Stats in the Apps list. Select ‘Show App on Apple Watch‘  and select the Dock find Golf X Stats and select the’Keep in Dock‘ button.
