Is GAME Golf Officially Dead?

Not me. I just upgraded to Live last year. It is what it is, but it gives me what I'm looking for, the ability to lament over my crappy rounds and see that my driver gets shorter every year.

Simply playing a round of golf isn't enough to sate your need for self punishment? 😜

Silicone, boys. It’s not just for bathrooms and bimbos anymore.

Glad to hear.  I know this is odd, but I really want them to succeed so I can continue to use my current tracker.  I know I could buy something new from someone else, but this has worked for me for ne

It’s all my fault. I got GG last year. I have the habit of putting electronics companies out of business. My wife and I put, in no particular order, Leiser Sound, Lechmere, Circuit City, Radio Shack a

And then you can relive every agonizing moment by talking about it on the internet. Damn I love this game 😂

If Game Golf wasn't down I'd be going back over my recent rounds right now.

To quote my playing partner who I met on the course as we were walking off the 18th, "I'm sure I'll see you around. You don't seem like you've got enough sense to quit."

Honestly if I had to pay a subscription at this point I'd probably just pay somebody else who is offering data outputs that I wanted from Game Golf for years. Other than the strokes gained stuff, everything they've done since I first bought my unit has been stuff that I wasn't interested in (Game Golf Live features, Game Golf Pro) and has shown me they want their product to be something different than what I want it to be. Now with the on and off issues with their database... it may be time to break up.

Our plans included:

  • A relatively low-priced plan with more statistics.
  • A plan that cost a bit more that would tell you how to spend your practice time given the data.

It sounds like the main funding for the company is selling new units. I doubt they will accomplish that with a dead site rendering said devices useless. People who were thinking about it wouldn’t buy it now, so I’m afraid it’s the end of the line for them without an inflow of cash.

Yes, John McGuire said from the beginning he didn't want to do a subscription.

I told him that was a bad move. That people wouldn't just keep paying for the belt clips and club tags. He had no real recurring revenue stream - he had to either make a product that breaks or wears out and needs replaced, or he needed a revenue stream from subscriptions.

He didn't want to do subscriptions because of something else that had flopped at the time, IIRC.

Bad business decisions.

And he still owes me $8k.

Even Arccos Golf has moved onto subscriptions.

I’m not removing the tags from my clubs quite yet, but I didn’t bother firing up the unit yesterday.

Yeah, I'm very curious how my last two rounds' SG info went.  It doesn't help that my tags are Gorilla Glued in, so it might be a pain if I switch to another system.  Plus I've been using this since Summer 2016.

As for me, I’m done with such technology. I liked not keeping score on a card. I would simply tag my shots and voila. I might resurrect scoring on my iGolf app. It was crashing a lot before, but hopefully that’s fixed.

Like, Gorilla silicone glue, no?

If so they come off pretty easily.

So I haven’t been out to play since last week and I don’t know what’s happening? Can I still use the device? I didn’t connect it to the website but only ever used the app. Is it not working without their online support?

Fml what a stupid system. Didn’t realize it was dependent on a login to work. Isn’t all data stored locally anyway? I mean just patch an update bypassing the login before you shut down the company?

    • If its the opinions of millions of people who lack the knowledge to fully understand the vaccine and probably get most of there information from opinionated people not in the specific science community.. I rather stick with the science community on this one.  Your millions of people who choose not to get the vaccine, do not come close to trumping the science community on this one.  When you walk out the front door, you are not potentially carrying a virus we know exists and know has been the third highest killer of people in the past year. Its not like heart disease or cancer, which you can't spread person to person.  Lots of different type of fatalities. They are not contagious events that spread.   Not a fair assessment. We are not going to have COVID around at its peak mortality for our lifetime. Please take that stat down to a yearly event.  That's like saying, Oh, you know this really bad flu season... you are more likely to die during a 500 year flood than die from that flu. To me, that just sounds like a stupid comparison.  If I knew the person was elderly and their driving skills were horrible. Then yes, I would tell them to not get behind the wheel of a car. My coworker, she drives over 100 mph on her motorcycle. I am waiting for the day she doesn't show up at work. I told her that she shouldn't do that.  You can say it is rude of me to butt in to her life like that, but honestly. I don't want to have to go to her funeral. She has an adorable grand daughter who she loves greatly. That would be a tragedy if she killed herself on a motorcycle like that. 
    • Of course. And I gave him mine.😃
    • Day 41 (5/15/21) - Since I haven't cut my lawn in a week, its now like the worst rough you've ever seen . I used the opportunity to practice Sieckmann's "c*ck and pop" shot from "Your Short Game Solution". Clearly, this is a REALLY low SV shot (in the past year there are only 2-3 times I could have used it) but since its useful on occasion, for short (5 yard) shots out of nasty greenside rough to a close pin, I took advantage of the opportunity. Additionally, I worked on pitching motion shots. 
    • And you, for some reason believe that your judgement is better than the millions of others.  To have the temerity to lecture me on my “duty” as a citizen is the height of arrogance.  Given how relatively little you know about me, my family, and my life, it’s also demonstrably ignorant. To say that someone “doesn’t care” that people die because of the virus is utter nonsense and is nothing but a somewhat pathetic attempt to elevate yourself in your own eyes.  I know, I know.  I’m killing people every time I walk out the front door.   Do you drive?  A silly strawman, but since Erik brought it up awhile back, I thought it would be interesting to look at the numbers.  According to the NTSB, someone in the US who begins driving at 16 will average 3 accidents while behind the wheel in their driving career.  Additionally, one out of every 103 accidents results in a fatality...   ...From a probability standpoint, you’re more likely to be involved in a car wreck in which someone dies in your lifetime than I am to “kill” someone simply because I choose to wait a bit before getting vaccinated. Interestingly, even given that, I wouldn’t have the audacity to think that it was my place to tell you to stop driving before you kill someone.      
    • Some Video… Current 6-iron No arm movement feel.  Current Driver Driver swing that feel like they are all turn. Maybe took it a bit to far in the 2nd video. Anything that isn’t this feel the club just keep traveling on further than I want.  Some notes for pitching….  Soft arms, more pivot, keep hands out of it a bit. Can get to handsy.
