Finally just ordered my game golf set. Should be here Friday.

I noticed it on sale for $150 on Amazon through Thursday. I may have to pick one up too, at a value price

Just sent another support case to GG. Last round not showing in my challenges or stats. Wouldn't bother me if it wasn't one of the best stat days I've had all year. After signing it nothing changed, stats didn't change, GG handicap (meaningless) didn't change, scoring average didn't change etc. So I hit edit and resigned and nothing happened, another edit and resign (no actual edits) and again resigned and nothing. A +1 9 hole round should have changed everything  but it's the same as before. Makes me wonder how many times this has happened. Which if it has it means my GG stats are meaningless.

Club performance also appears to be static. I hit three 8i shots yesterday, two at the average and one 16 yards longer than average and that shot isn't showing. This I have seen before so not sure why I didn't question it earlier. About ready to give up on GG and try Arrcos.

Just found out I lost another tag my last time out. This is kind of annoying. I like PURE Grips, but if I keep losing tags I'm going to have to switch.

I had the tag siliconed in, too. I guess it was due for a touch-up. Lousy way to find out.

I got home one day from a round and was cleaning my clubs when I noticed my 5i tag was missing.  I dumped the bag upside down in case it was in the bottom.  I went and uploaded my round and seen the last 5i tag was on number 7 hole from a driver slice off the tee.   I am real familiar with the area.  I asked my brother if he wanted to go on a search at the golf course.   It was dark out but we found it in probably 30 seconds of search.  It was about 5 feet from where I remember taking the shot.   The mowers in the morning would have made it a lost cause. 

I did away with the silicon and have been using medium super glue.  I have removed them after doing it when I was switching my wedges around a couple of times.

I use super glue as well. Not had any problems.

Thanks for the tip, I'll make the switch to super glue.

At least they sell individual tags now, not that I'm going to buy one ATM. Will just replace with one of the shape ones and call it a day.

I haven't had any problems with silicone. Yet? Maybe.

Good chance it's because you hit the sweetspot more often than I do. My guess is it has to do with vibration that gets transferred up the shaft from the head. Thinking about it now, I've lost three tags, all off my vintage blades. I have the same grips (from the same order) on my wedges and have never even had to re-tighten them.

I was thinking the same thing about hitting the sweet spot and having less vibration.  I did see one of mine fly off while out on the course (well, a little off).  It was in that same area as before.  The ground down there is very hard and I have a hell of a time hitting anything decent to get back on the fairway or make a stab at the green through the trees.  That one also had silicon on it (Golf Pride Tour Wrap grip).  

I have heard of Game Golf sending tags for free that have been lost.  It might be worth a shot especially if you are a regular user of the product.

My GG unit just came today (Amazon Prime FTW).  Purchased for $115 from Amazon.

I've set up my bag, and installed the tags.  I was a little nervous about the tag install after reading everything here.  In case it is helpful, here is how they installed on a variety of grips:

Winn Dri-Tac (woods/hybrids) - Installed perfectly with the screw thread.  Very secure. I can't imagine how these would come loose.

GolfPride CP-2 Wrap (irons) - Installed perfectly with the screw head. Very secure. I can't imagine how these would come loose.

GolfPride Tour Wrap (wedges) - This is the only install that I might add some silicone to.  They seem secure, but I can pull them straight out without turning with a bit of effort.

Winn Jumbo Lite (putter) - Installed perfectly with the screw head. Very secure. I can't imagine how these would come loose.

I'm probably not going to actually get to use the unit for the next few weeks, unfortunately, but I'm excited to try it out.  I'll probably track only "practice" rounds (unsigned and then deleted) for the fall/winter, to get used to working with the software, and then start in earnest next spring.

FWIW the tags seat great on the flat ended GP ND MCC Plus 4. My full swing club tags are never loose. The tag that comes loose for me is on the putter and I assume because it's the club I use most, often tossed on the ground for chips after missing the green etc.

You'd be surprised. The vibrations from a thin hit will pop those suckers right off.

You don't even have to delete the "practice" rounds.  After uploading and reviewing the individual holes, you'll come to a screen that will have you sign the round:

Screen_Shot_2015-10-06_at_5.46.17_PM.thu

 

 

 

Before clicking "sign round," click on the gear icon, which opens a menu:

Screen_Shot_2015-10-06_at_5.46.39_PM.thu

 

 

 

 

 

De-select the "include round in stats" and/or "make round public" (as you prefer):

Screen_Shot_2015-10-06_at_5.47.00_PM.thu

 

 

 

 

So the round stays in your account, but won't count for your stats (first box) or be visible to others (second)--either one, or both, your choice.

Or delete, if you prefer.  But at least it's nice to have these options.

Crazy...they seem so secure; I would have difficulty even prying them out.  I guess vibrations do funny things.  Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll stop at Home Depot tomorrow and pick up some adhesive silicone and use that, just to make sure.  I needed it for the wedges anyway; those I could definitely see coming loose.

That is pretty cool - thank you.  I actually got a bit of a reprieve for work tomorrow, so I'm thinking I might go out and play the local 9-hole course for the sole purpose of testing (ie, playing around with) the GG.  Nice to have the option to keep the round but not "count" it for stats.

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
