I'm a new member and wanted to say hello and that this is a really great community you have going here.

I am a newer player and have been using Game Golf Live for tracking my play. I'm completely addicted to the game so I ordered a full set of new clubs and want to create a new baseline with the new set. So I'm setting up my Game Golf tags appropriately but before I get too far, I was curious what other users of Game Golf have come up with for using their extra tags. For example, I recently have been using the triangle tag for putter shots very close to but not on the green to indicate shots which are not truly considered a putt because whenever you tap your putter, Game Golf moves the position of your shot onto the green instead of where you actually hit the shot. Anyway, before I finish re-configuring my tags for the new set, I was hoping to get some ideas from other users on how you use your extra tags.

Thanks and may all your shots be true.

The GPS tracking may sometimes be slightly off due to large trees surrounding or near the area of where you are located on course.

Most all users will edit their rounds on a pc for best results. There are toggle buttons which indicate when the ball position is either on or off the green. Also, when editing a round, a position tag with a putter is defaulted to a position on the green.

I've been playing/testing multiple sets of clubs and only use one tag which I have in my pocket, then edit club selection and pin positions after a round.

As mentioned, you can just edit your round and mark your putt as off the green.

I use my extra tags on extra clubs that I'll cycle in and out of the bag depending on my needs.

I've been playing/testing multiple sets of clubs and only use one tag which I have in my pocket, then edit club selection and pin positions after a round.

I had been going through and editing my round after and actually wasn't tapping the triangle during the round but changing it afterward as a way of removing the shots off the green from my putting total. I had seen the on/off green toggle but thought it didn't work correctly so I was ignoring it. See on my home course hole 5 is actually set up as two separate holes, a downhill par 3 and an uphill par 3, and only one is active on a particular day. Game Golf unfortunately has trouble with this and always tries to put the pin on the downhill so I would have to move to flag to the other hole when the uphill one is active. But while Game Golf lets you move the pin around on where it thinks the green is, it doesn't let you move it to another green. Actually you can but it won't count your putts on that green as putts and the minute you try changing the toggle to "On Green" it moves the shot all the way to the original green it thinks the flag should be on (If you check out hole 5 on the last round I uploaded on 6/14/16). So the whole thing messes with my stats a bit and I'm not sure how I can fix that. 

At any rate, I should have realized I could use the toggle on the other holes for fringe shots with the putter but it never clicked so thanks a lot for that tidbit.

Yeah I had been doing the same thing with extra clubs. One trick I know some people use is to use an extra tag to mark where the pin is to make it easier to edit the hole afterward for actual pin position when it changes and then just delete the shot after.

The problem with that is you still have to rely on the GPS accuracy, which can be off by up to a yard or more depending on conditions. It's not as big of a deal for longer shots, but 3' matters when it comes to putting stats.

    • Day 3: DONE. Okay, @iacas What I like: That the videos are short, simple and follow a very logical progression. It feels like somebody who's never played the game before could start this series and "build" a golf swing.  I like that they focus on fundamentals. Seems obvious, that trying to diagnose a swing fault from a crowd of folks on this forum is impossible. However, you see that a lot with online instruction. "If you have this fault do this..." …"What if I don't have this fault?"  I truly believe these lessons could dovetail with any swing coach's lessons you are getting... alright perhaps if you are learning a very "non-standard" golf swing... but there are other threads for that topic. I like the way you have each lesson laid out in words above the video, so we can see what's covered. That makes a lot of sense.  What I might suggest going forward - I know you have a bunch planned, but since you are looking for suggestions.... Drills to promote balance Drills to promote speed increases I will always be working on posture. More posture drills are personally always welcome. Some may not need them, but finish position posture is something I tend to lose and rebuild often.  Set up differences between driver and irons (perhaps this is 2 sessions: Set up and Swing differences.)  Trajectory mini-course Shot shape mini-course Thoughts on Swing Thoughts Thoughts on Enjoying Pressure A video for all five or one video per each of the five swing keys - How to diagnose etc... Putting fundamentals (I assume that's on the way.) Read, Speed and Bead - How to diagnose which is failing you? How to work on them? If it can be done. Perhaps a course strategy video? … Although that video you could just chuck down a copy of LSW and say "READ THIS".  Equipment fitting suggestions video? Warm up routine video? Golf related stretching? These are all just suggestions. I am not a golf coach, but I've got a lot of experience working with golf coaches … I tend to need a lot of coaching. The videos you have done so far have been an absolute Godsent for me. I truly appreciate all of these videos you are doing. When this whole thing is over and we're all sure we're still employed I hope a bunch of folks reup to support this site and the incredible amount of content it provides.   
    • ... I disagree wholeheartedly man.  I think that there are 100s of ways to think about any particular desired move but that only a few (sometimes 1) will actually engage the proper body parts to actually improve a golf swing rather than give a false appearance of improvement.    Ive been playing since I was a kid (20 years) and working on my swing like crazy for 10 years and went through 1000s of swing feels. I was always able to make my swing “look” better but never work better.  It wasn’t until I got the right feel that engaged the right muscles that everything changed and started to feel way easier.      Fair enough. I should say in my opinion. I’m probably going to end up disagreeing with 99% of people on here about the golf swing though haha.  You teach them how to make it work correctly... I feel that most instructors go through a “play book” of swing thoughts / feels to correct flaws until they find one that gives the appearance of improvement. 99% of the time those thoughts don’t actually engage the correct muscles and are only aesthetic. For example, You can have someone who rotates the shoulders way too flat on the backswing but is still on plane with the club. That’s a “fake out” in my opinion because that’s evidence that the hands and arms are forcing the plane rather that the body dictating it.  I work on getting them to feel the correct body motion to engage the correct muscles.
