You can now track- alcoholic beverages consumed, money spent and hours played.
If you are tracking your round on your mobile device through mobile.oobgolf.com, time spent will be calculated automatically if you choose to track it.
To add these stats just click "My Settings" on your top bar when logged in. There are actually 12 other stats available too, but we'll talk about that soon. If you are ambitious and want to start tracking those extra stats, everything is in working order and you can do that. Go ahead, be an Addict!

What happened to the relatively new "driving distance" stat? I liked that, and it's a simple automatic calculation that seemed to work well.
Jim, it was removed by mistake. Its back in there now.
Sweeeet. I can finally find out what my Beer-to-par ratio is and adjust it accordingly.
The new 'addict' stats are great. Thanks for all the new features!
Kevin, I just was editing an old score from 11/16/08 to mark it as 'walked' and somehow lost the data. Can this be recovered? Thanks!
Just became an addict without even having to think about it. This is a great site. Keep up the good work guys! Well worth the $$$.
P.S. I'd love to see an "up-and-down" stat(excluding sand saves). I track my up and downs from within 50yards (though people can pick any yardage they want based on their skill level).
Sigmapete1- We're working through more stats and we will have something with up & downs by the end of next week. We're deciding the best way to handle it since "up & down" is almost more lingo than a quantitative stat (unless you track a ton of variables).
Cool - I agree its a tough one to track uniformly for everyone without other related variables. Looking forward to see what you guys come up with!
How about an OB stat to go on top of penalties stat to help you judge hole scores based on the loss of distance as well.
How about a calendar?
My name is Kris, and I'm an OOB addict. Kevin, how many other addicts are out there?
Kris, its only in the double digit numbers right now. We haven't told anyone about it yet and its pretty well hidden in the site. We hope to add a few more things to it this week and open the floodgates early next.
I hope one of the new stats will be the "PBFU" (Post Birdie F*** Up). I would really like to know the number of times I make Bogies or worse after a Birdie.
@Stymie- I think there is a real name for that stat... but I like yours better!

Stymie...do you really want to know? lol
Keep up the good work guys!
PBFU percentage hovers around 100%.
I'm serious... no comment, that's the last hing I'm saying
I thought the WedgeGuy had a great stat, # of feet to hole a putt
I would like to see a money tracker between friends... $.50/hole $1.00/game or whatever you set it at for the season. Also, a "greenie" bet area.
A not so private joke for merlin re:stats
See wedgeguy's "a new stat for putting" for the whole shebang.
By the way Merlin, I finally came up with a "New Standardized" putting rating game. I'll write it to you when I get a sec.
How do you track your handicap ?
\I have put all theses scores in but it wpont tell me my handicap?
