  3. GAME GOLF has recently announced a new version of their shot tracking system and they are calling it GAME GOLF Pro http://articles.gamegolf.com/new-game-golf-pro-offers-unprecedented-shot-tracking-for-golfers-37381/ Some of the major highlights from the article: Taking advantage of the industry’s most advanced shot-tracking technology is this easy: arrive at the tee, turn on GAME GOLF PRO and play. Unlike earlier iterations, there’s no need to tap the GAME GOLF tags on your clubs to the hip device. All you have to do is play golf—and every shot, distance, and club used is automatically tracked. Incorporating automotive-grade sensors used by cutting edge motor companies such as Tesla, GAME GOLF PRO is so smart that it can differentiate real shots from practice swings. GAME GOLF PRO also doesn’t miss any shots and you don’t need to have your phone in your pocket, unlike competing systems. In fact, GAME GOLF PRO has its own battery and GPS included so you can leave your phone at home saving you data and battery life, if you choose. Coming to market in 2018, GAME GOLF Smart Caddie helps golfers make data-driven decisions by recommending clubs and hole strategy based on your previously tracked performance. Competing systems give you a recommendation for how to play a hole. Smart Caddie takes it one step further, providing you with recommendations for every shot you face on a hole with no manual entry required. Smart Caddie can even calculate the effect of weather and elevation in making its recommendation. Designed with the input of PGA of America Golf Professionals, the new GAME GOLF Coaching Dashboard not only allows you to accurately determine the parts of your game that need improvement, but it also makes it easy to share your data with your PGA Professional. GAME GOLF INTELLIGENCE puts a new spin on the GAME Golf tag line of ‘Know Your Game.’ GAME GOLF INTELLIGENCE provides the golf industry with a tool it can use to lower maintenance costs, increase pace of play, improve course set-up and playability, and make courses safer. “By drawing on our database of more than two-million rounds and twenty-billion data points—the richest source of tracked rounds golf—GAME GOLF INTELLIGENCE makes it possible for course owners, club management, superintendents and golf architects to respond to how golfers are actually experiencing their course,” McGuire said. Personally I like the tagging in my GAME GOLF Live unit, and it is part of my preshot routine and it acts as my "go" trigger to execute my shot. With GAME GOLF Pro I feel like it would always be in the back of my mind "I wonder if the unit tagged that shot or not" but with the current unit, I get the beep/vibration to know it tagged the shot One of the highlights from the article states, "you don’t need to have your phone in your pocket, unlike competing systems. In fact, GAME GOLF PRO has its own battery and GPS included so you can leave your phone at home saving you data and battery life, if you choose." With my current GAME GOLF Live unit, I dont have to have my phone in my pocket in order to tag the shots. Since getting the belt clip and tags, I am no longer on my phone during my rounds. I just edit the round on my phone after before I leave the course. Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but a feature like the Smart Caddie is not allowed in tournament play, correct?

  5. I saw a commercial the other day for the Callaway GolFit and it had me interested. So after browsing around all day yesterday I ended up stuck between that and the Garmin Approach X40. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with either unit. It would be neat to tie in the fitness and GPS into one watch device. Both look sleek and don't appear to get in the way when golfing. The Garmin has a few more features and is on sale for $199. The Callaway is $149. Looking like it might be an after Xmas present for myself!
  6. Bushnell Golf, makers of the #1 laser rangefinder, chosen by 97% of pros on the PGA Tour today, introduces the industry’s newest innovation – HYBRID. HYBRID combines the latest in Laser and GPS technologies to provide better data so golfers of all levels can make better decisions on the course. The new Bushnell HYBRID utilizes precise Laser and GPS yardages allowing the golfer to see distance like never before. “HYBRID provides golfers more information than ever before. The two technologies ‘talk’ so that the golfer sees the front and back distances of the green in relation to the pin that is targeted with unmatched accuracy by the laser,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Product Lane Director. “The introduction of the HYBRID demonstrates Bushnell Golf’s commitment to providing the best, most accurate information so those who golf with Bushnell can play their best golf.” The new Bushnell HYBRID takes the guesswork out of the game by displaying the lasered distances to the pin and GPS provided front and back yardage readings within the LCD. Additionally, Bushnell has incorporated exterior GPS front, center and back yardages to assist with correct club selections when golfers have cart path only or blind shots. To support the power required by the combination of GPS and laser technology in the Bushnell HYBRID, the brand introduced the use of Dual Power Technology. The CR2 battery will power the laser and the USB rechargeable lithium ion battery will power the GPS. Dual Power Technology allows you to be able to able to use your laser, even if the GPS is not charged. Additionally, Bushnell Golf includes PinSeeker with JOLT Technology amongst the host of features offered in the new HYBRID. When the golfer aims the HYBRID at the flag, JOLT provides short, vibrating bursts to reinforce that Bushnell’s advanced PinSeeker Technology has isolated the target and locked onto the flag. The vibrating bursts provided by JOLT Technology ensure golfers have the exact distance to the flag. Key Differentiators 1st ever integrated Laser/GPS display Dual Battery source (CR2 for Laser, USB for GPS) HYBRID Laser Features PinSeeker w/ JOLT Technology Accurate to 1 yard 5X Magnification Ranges 400 yards to a Flag Fast Focus System Stable-Grip Technology Tournament Legal GPS Features Exterior Front/Center/Back Readouts Up to 4 hazard distances per hole Bluetooth for auto course updates Auto course recognition Auto hole advance The HYBRID will be available at Bushnell Golf retailers nationwide beginning in April. Retail price for the HYBRID is $399.99.

    Golf apps

    Ok I found two apps for my iPhone. SwingxSwing and 18birdies. Both have scoring hole by hole and course layout along with position gps and distance to hole. SwingxSwing has my public par 3 but a lot of ads and errors with gps (works3 out of 5 times). 18Birdies works great with gps. Scoring on SwingxSwing has better break down of hole were as 18Birdies is basic in free version. Has anyone found another app or has anyone used these and had better luck I have the new I have the iPhone 7 plus FYI
  10. Looks like there's a new Game Golf system coming out that finally gives live feedback on your round, as many, myself included always wanted. I wonder how this will affect the free tagging feature of the app. I suspect that will shift to a for-pay format. http://www.wareable.com/golf/new-game-golf-live-adds-real-time-smartphone-insights-for-your-round-1854 New Game Golf LIVE adds real time smartphone insights for your round Game Golf, the round tracking wearable, has been updated to add a host of new features. The new tracker dubbed Game Golf LIVE gets its name from the new smartphone paired app, which enables you to get more information when out on the course. For the uninitiated Game Golf consists of a wearable receiver that clips to your waistband and a bunch of sensors that plug into the top of your clubs. You tap the top of the club on your belt before you play a shot, and when you get back you'll see a map of your shots, as well as stats on average distances with each club, success rates, putting data and a whole lot more. However, the previous Game Golf only got useful when you got home from a round, and as we mentioned in our review, built up a few rounds of history. Game Golf LIVE adds real time insights by connecting to a smartphone app. You can use it for yardages to the pin, a major omission from the last model and a real bone of contention for those who need to fork out for a GPS watch and the Game Golf system. It's also added Google Maps imagery in addition to Bing and Apple's own cartography. There are also additions to the post-round analysis as well. There's now a feature called Stroke Gained analysis that helps players find weaknesses in their game to work on during lessons or at the range. It will also put you up against scratch golfers to see which element is contributing to your downfall. Game Golf LIVE is set to retail for $249.99 and previous owners of the Game Golf Classic (as it's now being marketed) can upgrade for $99 if they get in before 11 November.
  11. 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.

    Favorite Apps

    This has got to be the place to ask - What everyone's favorite apps? Right now my favorites are V1 for swing analysis and Skydroid for GPS. I'm on the Android system. I'd like to find a stats app giving me similar info as the Strokes Gained stuff. I've contemplated GolfShot and would welcome comments from users. Am interested in the Lowest Score Wins app, but can't seem to find it. Might just go with the Game Golf program but the Federal Return just cramped my golf funds. Thoughts?
  13. I know GameGolf does a great job of compiling approach shot data while on the course, but for anyone else out there who practices hitting into a field, I found an app that has helped me map my shot zones. http://www.appliedstudios.com/dtool/09f03e59 When I first used it I was a bit disappointed as it only measures in a continuous path. In other words, I can only measure the distance from where I swung to the first ball, then from the first ball to the second, and so forth. But then I realized it doesn't matter as much how far each shot went. It matters more how big the zone is and its proximity to the target. So for the zone linked above, I measured a known target that was about 130 yards away and hit several shots to it. My first measurement is from where I shot, my second to the target, and the subsequent measurements are the shot locations. The GPS might be a little wonky - it measured one of my 6i shots at over 190yds. I can't BS that distance in the How Far Do You Hit You Clubs thread, much less hit one that far in reality. But I'm familiar enough with this field through google maps and with the terrain, that I can tell when it's pretty close. If anyone knows of a better way to do this, please share.
  14. My home course finally decided to join 21st century and replaced all their aging carts with new ones. The new ones came with a GPS. It's not new - I've seen it in other courses and it was great. But I am amazed how much it can improve our golf experience. For those who have been using the GPS, what other good features am I missing from below? GPS - exactly to the pin. They must "laser" it and enter the data every day. I don't need my laser rangefinder anymore. On rainy or frost days when it's cart path only, the cart is automatically disabled when it enters into fairway. Every time I see golfers ignore cart path only rule I cringe for the damage they are doing to the course. No more. For every so often, GPS will pop up a friendly message to fix divots & ball marks. Yeah! Hopefully, these reminders work on some. For holes with blind spots, a similar pop up message shows up. And cart location of front group are displayed on screen. You have no excuse to hit into a front group anymore. One can order food and drinks using the GPS touch screen. No more delays ordering food at the 9th hole cafe where sometimes, the group behind has to wait for the front group to get their sandwiches.
