Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday. I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it
Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable. Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone. It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone. Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location
At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting
So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly. Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes. Anywhere. Or worse. First time I've done that.
Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019).
This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A.. The second line is where I put notes for later: G (GIR) or N (near-GIR). I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category; F: messed up the hole) I don't do this during tournaments of course. Just saying it here because it's in the picture.
In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards. No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round. I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot). I believe it qualifies for the challenge.
And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16. So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end. I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing). Almost made the putt for a 75 too
76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies). I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards
My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
