I'm not at all familiar with Game Golf but do you tag at each shot and putt or is that with an older version? Are your clubs "paired" with a device or phone?

There are 3 versions of Game Golf.

”Classic” is the oldest and you physically tag each shot by tapping the sensor in the grip to s device you wear on you belt then upload to a PC via a USB cable.

”Live” also requires you to physically tag but is paired to a phone via Bluetooth to upload the data.

”Pro” is the current version and the  sensors are paired to a device and shots are automatically recognized without requiring physical tagging.

Except it doesn’t seem to be working very well right now.

Seldom seems to be operating properly. May be the answer to my query " WTF are they doing?" as the group ahead falls further and further off the pace whilst they keep trying to get their technology working so they can measure, and record for uploading  how far the ball went after they laid the sod over it yet again.

As a few have said, this is Game Golf Pro.  The individual club sensors have been set up, and are supposed to communicate with a "medallion" I wear on my belt for each shot, without me needing to tag each shot as with the original system.  The medallion functions as both the GPS locator and data collector, as far as I understand. I have kept my cell phone with me each time I've played, but the system is supposedly able to work properly even without the phone nearby.

A positive thing to report, I did email Game Golf yesterday, and they responded early this morning, which I consider to be very prompt response given the holiday weekend.  I'm uploading data logs for their review, they plan to help determine what's been happening.  Its entirely possible that I'm doing something that's sub-optimal, and the fix will be something easily accomplished.  Its also possible that the system doesn't work the way its supposed to.  I intend to do what I can to figure out which it is.

I emailed them about my issues last Sunday and I still haven’t gotten a response.

I had a email direct from the marketing department shortly after I receives the package, because they knew I was a "test subject" here.  Thats where I sent my inquiries, not through the standard channels.  it will be interesting to see the difference in follow up we each receive.

@DaveP043  Question? When you tag a shot, does the receiver "vibrate"?
I only looked at the first round and apparently none of the shots were recorded after your drives on the first couple of holes.
Also, the receiver should indicate a "shot was made" even without Tagging!
It detects hip rotation and should record a shot from the position.

As a suggestion, you can start a simulated round and should probably hold the receiver and tag every club.
Then you can review the recording on your phone.
Do it outside your home, move a few feet before tagging clubs.

I'll look at the 2nd round in a bit.

The receiver does vibrate, but its not particularly strong.  It also shows a green light when it detects a swing.  I have to admit that I'm not consistent in checking that each shot is detected.  I've uploaded the logs and their team will be looking at them to help me improve the performance.

Edit.  As @iacas says, I don't specifically tag, the system is supposed to pick up the shots without me doing anything.  The belt medallion does show an indications when it detects cuts a shot, and can be set.to vibrate too.

I have been using the “Chat” feature to communicate with them and have gotten very prompt responses.  On Friday I messaged them about issues with the satellite imagery on recent rounds in Northern Michigan and they were fixed next time I logged in on Monday.

Yes and no.  From the communications with GameGolf side, I got an email on Tuesday.  Essentially, the techies there have been working to correct some issues with the Golf Bag feature.  Now they'll be turning their attention to the connectivity issues I've been having.    So essentially no news.

As for on-course news, I tweaked my back a bit just before the 4th weekend, so I hadn't played since the round I posted for 7/3.  I'm feeling recovered, so I played 18 on this past Tuesday.  Playing the back nine first, shots were recorded for only two holes.  I terminated that round and started a new one for the front nine, and the results were improved but not great.  I did edit that nine, so its pretty accurate now, but the system either missed or significantly mis-located 8 or maybe 10 full swing shots.  That doesn't include putts, and I really don't mind the system missing putts.  I'll keep using it, and I'll wait to see what GG does to resolve the issues.  You can see all of these rounds at:

    • I like this guys podcasts. I don't find him pandering a specific protocol or you must do this to be healthy. He just reviews the science literature and provide informative podcasts about that based on the subject of the podcast episode.  ‎Huberman Lab: How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 on Apple Podcasts ‎Show Huberman Lab, Ep How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 - May 24, 2021 The summary... In general, eating less calories than calories burned. Calories intake is easy to calculate. Calories burned is actually not that easy to figure out.  These things will help to make sure your body is in an optimized state to burn fat. Above 1000mh of EPA fatty acid per day. Glutamine - Helps reduce sugar cravings. Can cause stomach issues discomfort when first starting out. Not really needed unless people struggle from cravings. Healthy Thyroid - So, proper Iodine Levels and proper Selenium Levels. You can get enough Selenium per day by eating 2-3 Brazil Nuts.  Proper sleep. Healthy gut microbiome - Eat fermented foods or take good probiotics. These things help burn more calories or engage the body into burning fat.  Fidgety Movement (bouncing leg, standing up often during the day). People who are subconsciously fidgety were measured burning 800-2500 more calories per day. Cold Therapy. This is similar to fidgety movement, but actually causes the body to create a chemical that engages the burning of fat. The steps are to induce a shiver for 1-3 minutes by getting into cold water (cold shower/bath). Exit the water, and shiver for 1-3 minutes, and then repeat for 2-3 more times getting in and out of the water. Do this 1-3 times a week.  High Intensity Training will burn glycogen during the exercise, but for what could be up to 24 hours after the training, the body will burn more fat.  For burning fat, working out fasted tends to be better. After 90 minutes of moderate intensity (zone 2), if you ate before exercise (1-3 hours before), you will burn far less fat from the 90 minute point onward than if you were fasted (eaten 3 hours or later from start of exercise). The body needs to deplete itself of glycogen to switch over to fat. Higher insulin levels will inhibit fat oxidation.  Coupling points 3 and 4, while fasted (at minimum 3 hours after eating), do high intensity training first then followed by low intensity training. This could be good for someone with a busy schedule. Training at high intensity for 20-30 minutes, where you are breathing hard for that amount of time, then go on with your day. If you want some extra burn of fat, then do some light to moderate cardio.  Supplements Caffeine - can enhance performance of exercise. But, only for caffeine adapted. If you are not, the caffeine will constrict your blood vessels and reduce performance. If you are caffeine adapted, then it will actually do the opposite. Up to 400mg of caffeine can help burn more fat during exercise (consume 20-30 minutes before exercise). GLP1 - Compound that is created in the body by drinking Yerba Mate tea. This compound increases fat oxidation directly. Like caffeine, can be taken before exercise to increase the amount of fat burned during exercise. Mate tea does have caffeine as well.  *Note, this is just stuff the scientific literature has shown. Consult your doctor before taking anything or doing any new protocols. 
    • Go to the automotive section of a store or Autozone, looks for “Westleys Bleach White”…. It’s a whitewall tire cleaner. Spray it on your grips, wait 30 seconds and rub it hard with a towel.  They will be like new.  I use it and it’s unbelievable 
    • Day 331: Played 18 this AM in the first group out. Driver was really squirrelly, so I went to the range after to work the feels out. I was definitely taking the club back to far out in front of me. This makes it hard to control. So I worked on the feel like I’m taking it too far inside, which isn’t the case (I know this from filming my practice). This just sets the club up properly for a good downswing. Playing again tomorrow. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ScottCurry/round/3100692  
    • Well, not quite. That ball was never holed...
    • Meh, the book was better. Seriously, hope no longer term problems for the guy in the video.
