GAME GOLF Live is now just $199 worldwide!

The Sand Trap's 2016 Partner GAME GOLF has just announced a worldwide* price reduction to $199. Now's a great time to pick up a GAME GOLF Live device, even if you don't always use the Live features, the Live offers a better GPS with longer battery life.

* Worldwide currency fluctuations may result in prices that vary slightly from $199 USD, but they'll be close. And this is my language, not GG's. :-)

Remember, too, to post in our prediction contest in the next day or two!

Thanks!

I hope to win the Ryder Cup competition. :banana:

But that's an autographed GAME GOLF. You wouldn't want to take that out onto the golf course.

Serious question....how does this app differ from the many others out there?   I currently use golfshot that I purchased for $30 back in 2012 and I have had zero issues with the stat tracking, gps, and the wide variety of courses that the app offers.   What is the value for a price tag of $199 usd?

For one thing… it's automatic. Tap, tag, done.

The CEO and the CFO of the house are in negotiations; the CEO can insist but the CFO is always quick to bring up opportunity costs. 

In the end I look forward to the tap, tag and swing.

 

mahalo,

will

@elementz: I also use Golfshot.  I use it on the course as I'm playing and for keeping my score (I've had it longer than I've had GameGolf, with more rounds on it, so I keep using it), and I like it. For stats, it does one thing better than GG (that I've found): It separates putts/GIR from overall putts/hole.

But for overall game and club information, I think GG does better.  As examples (from my GG info):

You can see how you do with a particular club:

You can see how you do from a distance (by grouped distances range; in this example, 125-150 yards):

You can see how you do compared with others of various handicaps.  Here, vs 20 handicappers:

Here, vs 15 handicappers:

And you can adjust these to look at the last round only, last 3 rounds, 5, 10, etc.  Or just specific rounds (selected individually--one or multiple rounds).  You can look at club performance (distances) for each club in your bag--overall, sorted by lie types (tee, fairway, bunker, other), and sorted by which rounds to include.

In summary, it gives a lot more information.  I think it's worth looking at.  What I did was download the app to my phone, sign up for a (free) account, and I used it for a couple rounds at my local executive course.  Using the free app alone took a bit more work than using Golfshot (that's why I used it at a short course when I had time to mess around with it), but when I saw the type of information it would give (as above), I decided to go with it.  If you do it this way, be aware that using the belt unit with the club tags is much easier than using the smartphone app alone--I hardly even notice it as I play a round.  But it will give you an idea as to whether you think the paid unit will be worth the cost to you.

Just my 2 cents.

Edit:  If there's a course that isn't already in their database, they can add it.  Or if it isn't mapped correctly, they can edit it, often within just a couple of days (after you've played your round--the data's not lost).  Their customer service folks are very responsive.

I have a promo code for 50% off (technically for family and friends, so you would have declare yourself my friend :-)) that should be good until 12/31. This was part of the prize package in the drawing that took me to the PGA.

Good stuff!

I just ordered mine from amazon, only paid $116 with tax and free shipping. I won't get to use it until next season but that's ok

Yes I have seen the $109 price in the sidebar here a few times.-Something is awry I think.

Can you export your data from GAME GOLF-anyone?

    • I don't necessarily mind if people don't "introduce" themselves per se, but it is grating occasionally to have members come on and immediately post a Member Swing topic and nothing else. Or to post a topic without searching and finding five other topics that are basically the same.
    • Charleston is a brilliant city, and there's good golf in all directions.  The one thing that worries me about Myrtle Beach and Charleston and other coastal areas is the potential for hurricanes.  I might be overestimating those dangers, but I think I'll feel better if I'm inland a little ways.
    • I've read the first two installments of the interview.  I think what Chamblee did poorly was to lump "instructors" into one big incompetent basket, and to suggest that Youtube and social media are an appropriate proving ground for "good" teaching.  When talking about Victor Hovland he says Is he saying that the teaching available on Youtube is now the right way to learn golf?  If so, he's ignoring a TON of very poor instruction that's available right next to some good stuff.   This sounds as if he's claiming that one instructor has provided the (incorrect) basis for "all teachers" and that Youtube somehow exposed the flaws in what "all teachers" were saying.  I don't have any doubt that there are a number of instructors who have had followers, schools of thought, and that some of those schools of thought were based on principles that have been proven wrong by real data.  But to suggest that "all teachers" have been exposed by social media is silly. In my mind, Chamblee deserves significant criticism for overgeneralizing in all these comments, and for holding up the fractured world of Youtube and social media as a positive authority on golf instruction. And about the rankings: None of the teachers listed are among the top 50 in the world?  I do agree that those lists are based to a significant degree on exposure, on having your teaching available and promoted and noticed.  I don't know enough about the folks on the list to say that someone does or does not deserve to be considered "top 50", but its inconceivable to me that not a single one deserves to be on the list.  Perhaps there is a better way to determine who deserves to be on the list, some type of metrics to be considered, but in the end its going to be a matter of opinion. In the second part of the interview, where he talks more of individual players and individual teachers, I don't have big issues.  Spieth hasn't improved, and its fair to consider whether that's his fault, or his teacher's fault, or some kind of combination.  It was interesting to me that BC chose to talk about Spieth as part of his response to a question about Rickie Fowler.  
    • Friend of mine moved to Charleston, South Carolina and loves it, he is really into golf and boating, (fishing). Haven't been there yet myself, may be a little hot in the summer, don't know. But if you are on the coast maybe not so bad. He had a new house build for less then what he sold his house for in New York.
    • My driver! I don't understand, I go to the range and hit it well but when I play on grass, like I did yesterday, it fails me. Had to resort to my 3W for most of the game. Putting also suffered but that is because of lack of playing lately. But it was good to get out.
