I’ve never lost a tag. I don’t know what some of you are doing. 🙂

Of course now I jinxed myself.

I think we talked about it before. My theory is off-center contact causes excess vibration up the shaft. It's only ever an issue on my PURE grips because the hole at the end is bigger.

I'll see how long I can tolerate tagging another club and editing before I just abandon the whole thing altogether. I'm not even going to bother emailing them. They still haven't gotten back to me from last week when I emailed them about the course mapping at Keney Park. There are some units with tags for $50 on eBay but I don't think I actually want to spend more money on this thing.

I use GolfPride CP2’s on my irons, and there is no way those tags are coming out. You almost need a tool to even thread them in all the way.

@billchao- I have a full set of extra tags I’m never gonna use. PM me and I’ll send you whichever ones you want.

I have MCC on my irons and they're the same way. I've only ever had tags pop out of PURE grips.

Thanks. I went digging around in my old golf bag and found an old wedge with an extra tag on it, so I'm still in business for now.

Can confirm. 

Full swing skull shot + Pure grips = Tag ejection

Silicone, boys.

It’s not just for bathrooms and bimbos anymore.

Still pops out with silicone. Superglue works better, but it's not fun when you need to remove the tag for any reason because you have to clean the bits of hardened glue and rubber off it.

I'm fairly certain I simply forgot to apply any adhesive to my last GW tag. Oh well.

My clubs are about 1 1/2 years old.   I used a white silicone to help secure the tags to my Golf Pride CP2 Pro grips.   This week I had to screw two back down and will re-secure them again with silicone this week.

Stop mis-hitting them then Bill. 😉

Must be something wrong with my current wedges. I haven't mis-hit my old ones in about a year 😜

Just to follow up, they had to furlough a few employees but are starting to come back. They solved my problem so I put my tags back on my clubs.

Update....I uploaded a round today and noticed a chat feature added to the system.  In a matter of a couple of minutes I was chatting with a live support person at GameGolf.  That is the first update to the system I have seen in quite a while and after so long with no support at all I was pleasantly surprised to see this.  Maybe, just maybe, GameGolf is on the road to recovery.

Nice!  I hope you're right.  Thanks for telling us :-)

I will now start using Taylormades My round pro. I’ll just tag them manually. 
 

I am looking for a cheap 2nd generation Arccos system.

Game Golf followed up with me yesterday asking if there were any other courses with the same issue.   I check all of my rounds in which I've used the device and they are working as they should.   Within the last week, they have impressed me.

My two cents on recent customer support: nothing but positive. Had an issue with their mapping of a new course that I played (tagged fairway shots weren't recorded as fairways hits, mapping seemed skewed to the right). Was able to contact their support using the live chat feature and instantly was paired up with a rep, who managed to fix the issue in about 20 mins. Easy!

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 nearly 5 years.

    • I have a TheraGun knockoff; KRAFT. Have had it for two years now. It is quiet (60dba); has three speeds 1800, 2100, 2400 - I usually use 1800 with the ball attachment. Once a day minimum I use it all over - well what I can reach - soles of my feet, calf muscles, front and back of upper legs, glutes, upper back - particularly the area between neck and shoulder and about 6 inches down. I will also take it to the course and use on the upper back - as that tends to tighten up during the round. Here is a youtube video by Bob & Brad (Physical Therapists) - they post lots of helpful videos.       
    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
