What is a positional shot?

The positional shot feature has been added to increase the accuracy of users statistics. On approaches players can mark a shot as positional when they have not attempted to hit the green, this means that shot will not be calculated for approach statistics such as green success percentage and proximity to hole statistic. Similarly users can mark short game shots when they are not attempting to go at the pin as positional, this again will mean that shot will not be included accuracy statistics. A scenario where a player would mark a shot as positional is the second shot on a par 5 when laying up short of the green.

    Are positional shots included in the overall distance calculation? I regularly use my 4 iron to bump and run, and punch out.
