If you own an Android phone then you can already use the GolfPad tags. You can even try the complete tagging manually using the application only (Android or Apple).
The new kickstarter campaign is really to copy the GameGolf idea and add a separate device for tagging that then enables Apple users to take part as currently NFC tagging is not supported.
I signed up early after having got fed up with the lack of progress on the GameGolf backend and having tried the manual tagging and statistics collection.
I played there last Summer and loved it. I know a lot of people complain about the random nature of bounces you can get on the fairways but I had an absolute blast.
I played in June and had a stretch of 4/5 holes where the wind suddenly got up, and at that point I gained a real appreciation for the skill of Links golf
I've been Playing Golf for: 14 years, but really got serious about it only last year (I've had just one lesson...10 years ago). Last year was the most golf I've ever played and managed to get out approx 16-18 times. My current handicap index is: 9.1 My typical ball flight with my irons is: slight draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: push/push-fade
Limitations: as some of you my know as posted in one of my other threads, I have an arthritic left shoulder which makes taking a full backswing both difficult & uncomfortable. HOWEVER, maybe it's simply bad technique and can possibly be improved upon.
Not having really any free time in the course of my usual day to record this, I got up this morning early and recorded this at the gym. While I realize this isn't ideal hitting a whiffle ball off of a mat, hopefully, this will still give you guys a starting point so that my priority piece can be established.
