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.

Any progress or updates on your trial?

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:

    • Well, with their QB back, Penn State decided to lay an egg. Though, with the new college football overtime rules (going to 2-pt conversions after the 3rd OT), they went to 9 OT!!!! There was a point that neither team converted on a 2-pt conversion a combined 8 times in a row! No one could get 3-yards! I am more upset that this devalues Penn State when Ohio State probably trounces them. 
    • Shorter flight, no spin. Gotta land it before the green a lot and let bounce it on. I like hitting the driver. I find it really forces me to swing smooth with a mild tempo. You don’t really use the Wedge(Niblick) around the greens other than when you are forced to flop it over something, which is tough to do. Often you will use a Mashie which is lofted similar to a 7 iron around the greens. The biggest learning curve is just in hitting the ball cleanly. The front edge on these clubs is very sharp.
    • How was it playing a round with the hickories ? Big learning curve or just shorter ball flight ? 
    • Here are some clubs I’ve been working on. I restored the Niblick(pitching wedge) but the other 2 vintage irons, I bought from an individual who restored them for me. I have a replica driver and a long iron which is called a Mid Iron. The second photo shows before and after of cleaning the rust off the heads. I am working towards building an all Scottish set, which will take some time. There are a number of short courses and older courses that are more fun to play with hickories. I played Eagle Springs which is Wisconsin’s oldest course and also a short course recently as my first round with hickories. It is a perfect hickory course. I’ll attach some more photos later about working on restoring these clubs for play. 
    • I’m new to golf in the last few months and my only previous driver experience was a older hand me-down. As in 30 years old or so. I bought the Wilson launchpad driver yesterday , the slice fighting model  with 13 degrees loft. It is very forgiving , I was hitting in bounds shots in the 150-180 range on my first few shots , with no driver experience. By the back 9 I was making several shots over 200 yards .   Today I was able to stay in bounds and managed a 250 yard shot verified by rangefinder and cart gps. If your having trouble with an older driver or don’t have one at all I’d recommend giving it a shot. I think they run under $300 new and this one was less than $175 as a pristine used one. It’s so easy to hit I might have been better off with the 10 degree loft one , I would have more rollout perhaps. Regardless I’m pretty happy with it , beats my previous 5 iron/5 wood drive strategy.
