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.

He doesn’t tag a shot.

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 know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....  
    • Day 284: Worked a bit on my priority pieces with a new drill to feel the left leg push back. Then worked on tempo.
    • Ugh. They better keep him away from tall buildings for a few days…
    • Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....
    • Day 40 (05 Aug 21) - Solo round today as the rain had relented.  Course was pretty open as there was only one person ahead and no one behind.  Allowed me to be not rushed as I played 18 at the local course.  A good day with the putter which I did have two putters with me - my old DF992 and the Odyssey White Steel 5.  As I had time, I would set up a second ball once on the green, play out the original ball for the score and then putt the other ball with the other putter from the same distance.  Found I am much more accurate with the White Steel 5, so in the bag it stays.
