In another thread about "What I've learned from 6 rounds of Arccos", several people responded about their experiences the Game Golf as well.   I did also but starting thinking about the putts lost and my use/application.   I don't mark the hole location when correcting the round (I don't pair it with my phone).    I make sure it shows when I 3 putt but sometimes the distances of each putt isn't close.   I'm sure that affects the strokes lost.    What's the correct procedure for correcting putts before signing the round?

I pair mine with my phone so I fix mine while waiting on the next tee that way I dont forget where the hole location was.

What I did last round was write down each putt distance and make that the same via the computer.    It did make a difference in strokes gained/lost putting.   Now if I can only remember....

For putts, I combine it with my pencil scorecard. I will write down a Putts row where I write the amount of putts and length of my initial putt.

Not sure how huge a difference it makes for the 2nd putt distance? Im usually putting 1-3 feet unless I vividly remember missing the 1st putt bad and having 5-10 feet for a 2nd putt.

Second putt distance is irrelevant, except maybe if they add putt make % by distance (and you regularly hit your first putt to larger distances).

Question:  is it a good idea to use the Game Golf to record a round if it's being played as match play?  I understand not to do so for a scramble, and to do so for stroke play.  Am I likely to get misleading data for match play or is it likely a wash?  I suspect most holes won't be much different at my level (I'd only do things like go for pins if forced).

Just add the putts or whatever you're given later. Unless you don't finish out or get close to finishing out most holes, that is.

Thanks, and good point.  I figure for a 2' given putt, yeah, if I don't get a chance to tag it on course I can add it later.  If my opponent is giving me a lot of 10' putts or conceding off the green, I can remove the hole if it's once or twice and the round if it happens frequently.

If the match finishes before 18 holes, I plan to play the remaining holes anyway (daily fee course, might as well) so at that point I'll play out to the hole.

Funny occurrence today: my GG tag fell of my putter during the round, so I threw it in my bag after I finished playing.  I guess I forgot to turn off the GG device.

It recorded a "round" where I shot 1,144 (1140 over par!) with 1,144 putts.  Basically, you can follow the trail as it recorded shots during the entire drive home:

It's neat that they kind of correlate to speed, also - you could tell when we were on the highway versus sitting at traffic lights.

I tried to sign the round, just to see what the Strokes Gained stats ended up looking like...but it didn't work.  Still pretty amusing.

That's too funny!

Possibly. I didn't have any issues with the round today (except for that one hole you saw) and I had it turned on when I was on the practice green. For the round yesterday at Little Mill I didn't turn it on until the I got to the first tee. Might have done the same thing at Lawrence Park, don't remember exactly.

 

Here is today's round, course was wet but fun to play.

http://www.gamegolf.com/round/86380

I noticed on the par 5 5th hole you hit your 2nd shot in the bunker, hit a GW from 70 yds on the green and 2-putted for par, and it counted it as a "sand save".  Does it do that automatically, or do you manually input a stat like that?  It wasn't a greenside bunker, and although you made par it wasn't an up-and-down, so I'm curious about that stat.

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

When I took my GG off my belt today, I noticed the belt clip is a little loose.  Any ideas if this is something that I can fix or would I end up buying a new unit?

Define "loose". Is the spring gone? Is it cracking?

The part that my belt goes between used to barely come out, now it is able to come out a bit.  I don't think the spring is gone.  There's a minor crack but it doesn't go through.

Update in case anyone finds this and wants to know:

1.  See attached picture for how far off the belt clip part is. 

2. I found this link in support and I am going to email them to ask if this qualifies: https://gamegolf.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2262219-belt-clip-replacement?b_id=10625

I emailed GG last night with the information in the above comment;  I woke up this morning to an email from them saying they're shipping me a replacement belt clip. 

That's some A++ customer service.  Quick replacement and they're open on the weekend?  For a product I've owned for over two years.  It was already a product I was happy to recommend to people, but now I'm even happier to do so knowing they take care of the customers so well.

This might be in the 57 pages of the thread, but I couldn't find it in the GG FAQ and I'll probably sort through this thread later if someone doesn't know offhand.

My insights > strokes gained tells me putts inside 10' could improve by 1.1 shots per round when I compare to a 10 handicap (this does not surprise anyone who knows me).  Is there a way for me to find out from the software whether it's inside 5' or 5-10'?  Those are at least somewhat different routines.  As it stands I'm practicing "short and I should make most of these" putts about equal with the 8' putts (where about half would be really good), but if one category is worse than the other, I should up the practice in that range.

For me, I suspect it's the longer ones (as my lack of success with Broadie's 10' drill might illustrate), but I'd like to know a bit more if possible.
