Second round with the new irons and another 67. I think I will keep them in the bag for now. Putted like shit, only made one putt over 5 feet and started the round by 3-putting for par on the first hole. But I holed out from 90 yards for one eagle and chipped in from the fringe for another. This round was all about driving and ball striking.

My last two rounds, GG Live has paired fine and recorded the first shots, then stopped. Anyone else have this issue?

New personal best on Friday, +1 73.  Also broke par on 9 holes for the first time.

Ball striking with my irons made all the difference, I had one main swing thought that went along with my Evolvr priority piece, and my confidence kept growing throughout the round.

The 73 included a 3 putt for a par on a par 5 too

Was better than a 5 handicap in all of the strokes gained categories, and was better than scratch in driving.

Only had 12 putts on the back 9 too. Just a solid day overall.

Somewhat random question, but has anyone else replaced the clip for their Game Golf unit before? The belt clip on mine broke a couple weeks ago when I finally found it and brought it out again for my round, so now I'm stuck with one that can't sit anywhere besides my pocket or the cupholder of a golf cart. 

I know mine is out of warranty so I can't go that route, but I'll also contact Game Golf and see if there's any way I could purchase a replacement clip or discounted replacement unit.

Started out great, but then got stuck behind a tremendously slow group of hillbillies. Standing around waiting just kills my game.

Started out decent then ran out of gas. I was tired before I went to the course but I can't play again until next week so wanted to take advantage of the nice weather. (The bogy on 3 is actually a double because it's a par 3 this year while they embiggen the pond.)

Contact them for sure!  If they still have them (which is an if, as they are done making Live), they will most likely just send one.  I acually liked the replacement better than the original, though I don't remember why just now!

 

I have a question for you game golf users.  I've been using live for a while now (long enough that it went south on me last week, I just got a new one cheap, since they are not making Live anymore).  Are any of you using Pro?  I believe it was out for a while, and now it looks like it is coming back out.  I was wondering about your current experiences if anyone has it.  I'm not sure there's that much benefit in not tagging (it's such a habit that I hit my club on my hip even when the device isn't there),but if it works well, maybe it's a good thing.  Just way more expensive!

Game Golf finally worked again. Pretty good round. I was a bit erratic on the first hole, but settled down after that.

That back 9 sure was interesting...

Hit the driver pretty well today except for the two in a row I topped. In an effort to develop a pattern with the driver, I closed my stance to promote a draw. All the misses right were straight pushes except for on 15 where I hit a huge slice, felt myself swing hard left on that one instead of extending my arms out. Just a bad swing.

Short game was really good. Partial wedge distances with the new wedges are pretty much dialed in. I think I finally kicked that arm-pull pitch motion I've been fighting for a while and I'm back to a pivot-driven motion. Contact was much cleaner.

Putt well, too. Dropped a couple of long ones. Only bad putt really was the first one because the green was slower than I expected it to be from the morning dew.

Played in my last Elite Golf Am Tour event yesterday.

Shot 43-35=78 had a triple, a double and 2 birdies. Was low gross in my flight and won 3 skins.

This was a very hilly course as there was not a flat lie anywhere except the tee boxes. I made one bad driver swing and one bad par 3 swing. Other than that played okay.

Next stop is our 4 day Pinehurst trip at Talamore Aug 22nd. After that, who knows???

Love it!  My Game Golf told me to hit my drives 280 yards into the rough to increase my scores by 2.83 strokes.

I have been playing extremely well the last two weeks. My last 6 scores are (71, 67, 67, 73, 67, & 69). I made 7 birdies today, had a couple bad swings with the driver that cost me or I could have gone even lower. This streak all began when I put new irons in the bag.

I see that you're not a fan of hole #2.

    • if you can't reach the par 4's in 2 shots, then, i dunno what to tell you, other than youre playing the wrong tees lol.  golf is hard man, eagles are tough, and hole in ones are near impossible believe it or not there are pga tour players who get a hole in one in a tour event and it's literally their first hole in one EVER, meanwhile some low handicappers have multiple hole in ones in their lifetime.  I have 0, but I'll take near par rounds over a hole in one while shooting 80 any day.   I only just this year got my first eagle after driving a 260 yard par 4 and draining a 15 foot putt.  I've started to come close on some par 5's this year too as I'm now starting to hit the green on 2nd shots, but again, my focus is not on getting the eagle but rather setting up easy birdies and making pars as my 2019 goal was to break 80, which I now do regularly, so my next goal is to shoot par on a full 70/72 course.    as far as advice goes, you probably just have to be better.  eagles start with a good drive and a solid 2nd shot.  Know your distances, and be a solid ball striker so your shots actually go those distances 80% of the time, not just once in a blue moon.  I mean, unless youre getting 3-4 birds a round, what makes you think you deserve to get eagles? 
    • Welcome to the site from a fellow, albeit more seasoned, Daytonian. 
    • Interesting. Sometimes at the range I'll play a "simulated" round. I pick a local course I know well and imagine I'm there. First hole, 399yd par 4, hit Driver from the tee. I pick a particular target that represents the fairway. How far I hit it determines the club I pull for my approach, and I pick a different target to aim at so I'm not hitting on the same line every shot. And so on.  On the green do some specific drills, like Michelson's circle drill. Also, use a couple of tees to make yourself a "gate" that is about an inch wider than your putter. Put a ball between the tees and stroke some putts. This will train you to strike the ball in the center of the putter face. Heel and toe strikes will mess with you.  In addition to sharpening your short game, if lag putting is a problem then yes, you'll have to work on it. There's a thread on the "Swing Thoughts" page, I believe, titled "Do NOT accelerate when putting", or something to that effect. I've worked on this since I read it and it has improved my putting, especially my lag putting, a lot!  Sometimes, just work on putts from 3' to 5'. If you make a bad lag, and you will, we all do, those are the ones you have to make to avoid 3 putting. And, if you stick your approach close, those are the ones you want to 1 putt. I've heard more than one pro say that it's important to see the ball go in the hole! Over and over again. Practice success!
    • I am playing a set of Mizuno MP-18 MMCs, and really like them. They have a thin cavity, thin top line, and minimal offset. The SC version would also work. New MP-20s would be similar. Also if you don't mind a bit thicker top, something like the Callaway Rogue Pros are smaller headed with very little offset.  Again every company makes a small headed cavity back at this point.  Might also want to check out some of the component options. Maltby has some heads that would fit the bill if you don't care about what name is stamped on your irons.
    • True that! There was a time when I played a lot of tennis. I, and a friend, would play almost every day after work, and we got pretty good. He was 6'3", I'm 5'9", and he liked to take me deep and charge the net, Once I figured how to hit a deep topspin lob, he stopped doing that!
