TST Explores GAME Golf

Ok I finally bought Game Golf Live and I cannot get it to see my device with Transfer App Version 2. I've tried on my Mac (Sierra OS 10.12.6 not Mojave) and my wife's laptop with Windows. I've tried multiple USB ports and cables and nothing. No device connected. The device is charging alright from the USB port, but it doesn't connect.

Not sure what else to try. I feel like I've wasted $99.

Why do you need the transfer app? I haven't used it since I bought a live a while back, since then I've just used my phone.

It's easier and more precise IMO to edit the rounds on the computer.

I'm just the opposite, I never use my phone, I just edit on the computer.

I was trying to troubleshoot why it wasn’t pairing with my phone. I contacted support and the told me how to reset the device. It works now.

I’ve seen that with the wrong kind of data cable.

It does power but not data.

A cable came in the box no?

I've noticed that, too.

I always found it odd that I had to use that specific cable since with other devices that transfer data to my computer (like my phone) the cable I use didn't matter.

I wasn’t the cable. I used the one that came with it. I had to reset the device.  I’m not sure why. It is working now.

I used the iphone app in the past, but hated carrying my phone around with me, but I got an apple watch for Christmas and realized a couple week's ago that it works with the app.  I played nine on Saturday and just used the watch to tag clubs and check distance to the green if i didn't pull out my range finder.  I am a bigger fan now that the watch makes it a lot easier compared to messing with my phone.

And I know, using the device is probably easier than the watch, but I'm still not sure about putting the devices on my clubs.

I had reservations about that too but once on, you won't even know they are there.   If you use a silicone to secure the tags to the end of the grips, they will come off easily.

I used my Swing Speed Radar to check swing speeds with Driver, 7 iron, and PW with tags in and tags out. There was no statistical variance either way. This was using the GameGolf Live tags (small red ones) and not the black GameGame Pro tags, just for clarification.

Does everyone recharge the GG device after each round? I used it for a nine and did not recharge for a couple of days. It was dead when I went to use it.

Also, do you turn it off after the round? There was nothing on the site about that.

I’ve used it for up to three nine hole rounds without charging in between but I also shut it off as soon as the round is over.

To shut off, you just press and hold the button again, correct? That is what I did.

I usually charge mine after each round.    When I upload the round, I leave it plugged in a few extra minutes until it's charged.   I always turn it off after the round.     When I travel and don't have a chance to sync it right after a round, I've had mine last three rounds.

Rounds can be uploaded also when you pair it to your phone when playing.
Also, there is enough storage memory in the device for 9 rounds I think.

Sometimes when I travel, I carry a battery extender and use it for extended use.

    • Let us know how it goes. 
    • Cost and time.   THanks..have to give it a try..just trying to get back into my set without investing $$ for the time being..TY!
    • From yesterday's round. Approach to the green was a little long, and my ball was sitting on the back fringe. Large pile of coyote shit between the hole and my ball. The putt was right to left breaking so luckily my line was maybe 2-3 feet to the right of the turd, and there wasn't much chance of rolling into it, unless I hit a terribly offline putt, or got unlucky with a deflection off a bump in the fringe (which is quite beat up where my ball came to rest).
    • You're not supposed to change your vote. 😛 The problem with that is that the "shotgun pattern" doesn't account for the putts that go in. Yes, the distributions of both get larger. Bobby should have studied probability more. A putt going toward the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. Both result in a miss. A putt that is missing the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. One may result in a make, the other is still a miss. Bumps (if large enough to deflect the ball a little over an inch or so, and if close enough to the hole for a miss to become a make) have a negative outcome 100% of the time when the ball is going in, and a positive outcome 50% of the time when the ball is going to miss. Or to put it in absolute terms, every bump on a ball that would be going in the middle has a negative outcome - it steers the ball farther away from the center of the hole, and every bump that steers the ball on a putt that's missing has a 50% chance of "helping" by steering it in the right direction. Nope. You can join Bobby Jones in the statistics/probability class. 🙂 These bumps aren't knocking the ball feet farther away. They're not tees randomly stuck in the ground. They're just bumps on a putting green. That's the kind of road you can lead yourself down when you don't just look at it logically. 😄 To the majority of you getting this one wrong… Let's make an extreme example. You have one putter that makes 80% of his putts, and another that makes 50%. The gap is 30% or 0.3 strokes (1.2 versus 1.5). You introduce enough randomness that 25% of the putts that were going to go in miss and 5% of the putts that were going to miss go in. The gap is now: 0.8 * .75 + 0.2 * .05 = 61%. 0.5 * .75 + 0.5 * .05 = 40% What was a 30% gap is now a 19% gap. The gap narrows. The good putter is punished, even though he's punished at the same "rates" as the bad putter, at a higher "value" because he hits more putts that would have gone in, while the bad putter hits more putts that could potentially only be directed in. To put it another way, there's a larger possible "negative" adjustment or change for the good putter and a larger possible "positive" adjustment or change for the bad putter. This is true in pretty much* all cases: the more luck plays a role, the less skill plays a role. * I'm a "never say never or always" kinda guy. I can't think of a time when an increase in randomness or luck also increases or at least doesn't reduce skill, but again… see the first sentence here in this asterisk.
    • Why? On 40 foot putts, they both don’t have much of a chance.  It’s the putts inside 15 feet that have the highest Separation Value.  So if a great putter makes 5 of 10 putts at 8 feet (tour average) on tour greens and he missed 1 or 2 more on crappy greens, his percentage changes more. The bad putter is missing more of those anyway, even on good greens.
