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? 😜

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.

Dude, you found the Yogi Berra of golf, lol.

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?

The app is dead too.

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?

    • I have an answer written up, but I'll wait a little bit to post it. Go ahead, keep arguing. But stop changing your votes, please. Your vote is your vote. If you're wrong, let the vote show it.
    • Has anyone tried to rough up the surface of their grips to make them tacky again?  or what is a time tested solution - besides replacing them of course.
    • Thank you for that!  Always wondered what those were called..good topic.  I finally got out to the range after almost 6 years and surprisingly hit my irons decent.  I have also decided to put a few irons away.  thinking of replacing the stronger lofted with my hybrids and going down to the 6i and down.  
    • Exactly! That loft number is all you need. The fact that one OEM calls it an Approach Wedge and another calls it a Gap Wedge is irrelevant. For me, I need a 50 degree wedge; then I know what to do with it. OEM’s are in business to sell golf clubs, period. If you think they have some altruistic motives as well, you have probably drunk the koolaid.
