TST Explores GAME Golf


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Over the next few weeks, @mvmac , @david_wedzik , and myself will be playing with and investigating the value of the GAME Golf digital tracking system.

In a sentence, GG clips to your belt and, when you touch a club to it before hitting a shot, tracks your shots for automatic and easy compilation of statistics showing you where you hit your ball and how far with various clubs, and other assorted stats.

I've charged two of the systems already, and a third will be charged later, so we'll all get our first rounds in with them tomorrow. Much more to come.

P.S. The packaging is great. I really appreciate solid, well designed packaging.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Improve your putting from 30-30,000' to reduce your score by 1,100 strokes per round.

... right after you improve your tee shots on holes >500 yards to save 1 stroke every 20 rounds.

Hopefully by then some other company will have a product that suits my needs. I kind of just feel like the company is poorly managed. Lacking vision maybe.

Awesome! I can't wait to hear more about it! I don't buy much in the way of golf gadgetry, but this particular device has me very intrigued, so I'm hoping it's as good as it seems to be.

I'm very interested as well.

I saw a post this morning on FB that Pres. Obama is using one, so it can't be to difficult.

Golf Digest

No matter your politics, it's good pub for the game and game golf when a Prez plays your game or uses your product.

President Obama is tracking his golf stats like a total champ right now

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

But the most interesting thing about Obama's round with Allen isn't who his partner was, but rather what he was playing with.

You'll see in the picture below an arrow pointing to a red thing clipped to Obama's belt. That's GAME golf, a stats-tracking tool that we've written about before.

The way it works is pretty simple: players will plug red trackers into the grip-end of all their clubs and tap it against the red thing on their belt before they hit their shots.

At the end of your round, you connect the device and can start analyzing all the shots your tracker just captured. It can tell you things like driving distance and accuracy, greens in regulation, scrambling percentage and number of putts. We tried to look up President Obama's stats but, alas, it appears he's using an alias.

I have to say it looks and sounds awesome. Looking forward to your review and also how you think it can integrate with and improve golf instruction if at all.

I think the overall implementation is pretty simple. I am more curious as to the data it gives you. Really like the concept though.

Are you going to hit some shots with the game golf on flight scope to compare distance dispersion ect....?

I'm not sure how that would work, game golf tracks these things by updating when you get to your ball. If you are hitting on flightscope you aren't really walking to the next shot for game golf to track the distance/direction. Unless you mean are they going to take the flightscope on the course to measure the same shots as they are measuring with the game golf device. That would be interesting.

Yeah I thought you could take flight scope on the course and maybe hit a few drives and a fewi ron shots and compare the data. Don't you think thats the best way to see how accurate it is?

Could be, but you could also use another golf app that tracks shot distances like golf logix or something too. Just didn't know how practical it would be to take flightscope out on the course.

You could, but we're not going to do that.

We're more interested in the stats it can generate, and whether you can use it to build Shot Zones (i.e. does it assume the target is the center of the green every time? Or the center of the fairway? If so, that's problematic.)

Can't wait to hear your results. My buddy text me the link to these early this week and now I really think I want one. Much easier than messing with.these phone apps during my round it would seem.

    • I find hybrids are not as good out of rough as I have seen advertised. Maybe it’s my technique, but I am reaching for my irons instead now.
    • We are not going political in this thread please. Also, I know of people on the opposite side of who you are referring to who are also anti-vaccine sadly. It’s the trust is misinformation that is driving them.
    • The elephant in the room here  - and everyone knows it is as follows: Not all people of a particular political persuasion are against this and other vaccines. But all people who are against this and other vaccines are of that particular political persuasion. @David in FL is pretty obviously seen as a man of sage like wisdom amongst his friends at the pool hall who base their "opinions" on misrepresentations of reality and downright lies. ("Research") Problem is, when asked to defend his position he puts up straw man "arguments" where the goalposts keep shifting and he can always be seen as being prudent and sensible amongst the uneducated. So freaking what if lay people can't describe to you what the effects will be in 2 years or - the scientists (who, amazingly are on our side) have a pretty good idea and I for one don't feel like a "sheep" for believing them. If they can convince him it's safe after 2 years he'll scratch his chin, put down his glasses and ask "What about 7 years?".  When a role model is a national leader who gets his shot in secret for fear of upsetting his followers, it should make one more determined to bow to peer pressure and get the vaccine. Peer pressure meaning giving a shit about your fellow man/woman and children.
    • I like my mega sudoku I wont lie it usually takes a few hours but I want to start trying something larger than 16.
    • Well I had said that I would get back to you guys after I goofed around with the 54° and 58° on my short game shots (I only have my old Tommy Armour V-31 sand wedge as a 56° test).    My experience was that I don’t know that I will ALWAYS need two speciality wedges for  short game shots, but the 58° does come in handy from uneven shittier lies, the 56° has decent results from said lies, so the vote is not in yet... I feel the 50-90 yard shots are easier to control with the 56° (my 54° is 95-105 yards, and 58° 75-85 but I don’t like to hit them full). On the full swing motion wedge shots I can get away with just a 56°, but the one time I need a 58°-60° around the green... I think it’s going to course and conditions dependent... I can always take the 3-iron out for the 7-wood... or the 3 and 4 iron for the 7 and 9 wood... but that’s a different topic...
