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.

Gonna close this topic and direct everyone over here instead: Thank you!

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

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?

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 ended up making an appointment at PGATSS and got fit in their tour studio. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn’t as magical and data driven as seen on TXG videos appear to be, but I think I came out of it with what I wanted. I was trying to be brand agnostic, but did mention that I would buy the Ping 425 Max if I just bought off the rack. I tried maybe 3 different heads, but we primarily focused on that driver. I wasn't hitting well at all that day. But then again I don’t have a consistent driver swing. I warmed up with my flimsy Callaway Strata driver, and he asked if that was my actual swing. He said my swing speed was 80. Swinging slow and in the middle of my stance is the only way I can hit it straight, and it goes super high for about 220 and stops. If I put the ball in the front on my stance I hook it way left. Anyways when I actually swing for real, I was averaging 100-105 swing speed.  Ultimately I ended up getting a 9* Ping 425 Max with a 65g Ping Tour Stiff shaft, turned down to an 8* with the weight set to fade. At first I was a little skeptical, because I didn’t perform well there. I was still hitting it to the left. He told me I just needed some practice with it. After a few rounds last week, I’m very happy with it. I’ve been averaging about 275 with it. I’ve even hit a few 290 according to my Garmin watch! I’m so happy to have my first real driver!
    • I think that the current prices of gold and platinum that they use are reflected in the price. Seriously - what sort of idiot would pay these prices? In @billchao's post for two fairway woods I was wondering where the iron set was.  People are paying for a shafting, not shafts. Geez.
    • It always amazes me how someone can have the top 13 of anything done at the highest athletic level.     
    • Yeah I really like that Hybrid for sure. I like that you can flatten the lie angle of the G410s. I will probably mess with a G410 5w and loft it down to near a 4w. It was a blast getting to play some golf with you this past week Matt. It has been way too long since we were able to meet up for that. I was super happy that you were able to make this trip! On another note I went to the range tonight and had very good results adding a little "throw" to the downswing. I did not hit a single ball out of the bottom of the driver. I am super happy with the results as I was hitting the ball much higher. Now I just need to repeat that. 
    • I am getting very tired of these slow starts. 6-6-5-4. 6 over before  hit the 5th tee. Doesn't matter how many I hit at the range, it always seems to take me 4 holes to loosen up and settle in......
