jasonfish11 wrote:Some tips for you that help the device work well.

1) Do your best to always tag your club, although this will be hard until it just becomes part of your preshot routine (3-4 rounds for me).
2) Always bend over to get your ball out of the hole. It has some algorithm that basically says the flag is located where you bend over while on the green after tagging your last putt. So if you have a 3" tap in and scoop the ball with your putter it may not have a good idea where the hole is.
3) when editing putts try to be as accurate as possible with the putt distance (they just added this feature, unfortunately its in yards). 1st putt distance is the key to 3/4 of the strokes gained stats.
4) Follow jasonfish11.

This last one is probably the most important.
5) When reviewing your round review each shot to verify it is correct. I'm not sure why but I've been dead center of the FW before and it has me as a missed FW. I've also missed the FW and it has had me in the FW. So be diligent in paying attention to your stats when you are reviewing. You CAN NOT edit a round after it is signed.

Also if you are like me and take a ton of practice swings off to the side between other peoples shots, make sure to edit your round ASAP because it will record those as untagged swings. You'll have to remember that they weren't real swings at the ball and delete them.
Sweet, thanks for all the heads up. I didn't know alot of that.

So since I posted this they changed it to feet which is nice.

So I played my 1st round using Game Golf. I was determined to tag all my shots, which I did. I found it pretty distracting while putting. My game is quite fickle & I ended up 3 putting hole # 1, 2, & 4. ...settled in a little after that but I still find it awkward while putting.

Also my final putt distances are off by like 10 feet. Alot of 1 or 2 foot tap ins are showing as 12 footers. Important to fix these? I can't remember all these putts. Am I moving and tapping too fast on the greens maybe? I don't want to sit & wait over a putt just to tap... other people are playing. I hate having people wait.

Overall I liked it, assuming it will be easier as I use it more.

Oh & what I'm sure is the standard comment: Im surprised by the (short) distances.

I just edit the putt distances to be more realistic. But it is pretty uncommon for it to be that far off for me.

If you leave them you'll look like the world's best putter in you strokes gained stats.

I went through 'em & adjusted. I brought 3 or so of them in from 8-12 foot final putts to 2-3 footers. Didn't seem as crazy when I went green by green & recalled putts.

I know that there is a gyroscope in the belt clip. So I'm not sure if bending over to pickup the flag after you've bent over to pick up your ball confuses the thing and makes it put the hole location in the wrong spot. Just make someone else get the flag all of the time :D

Got the putter re-gripped yesterday. Hit some balls in the simulator bay things @ Golfsmith.
I also bought a little golf mat to hit my pitches/chips with my almost golf balls... in the living room. The rug is a bit too bare a lie.

I'll either aim @ Louie (Oosthiuzen), my cat, or use the pitching/chipping net my nephews got me for my birthday.

Winter is here. Golf is now played in my house.

Been stalking it for 11 months. I've hit it a bunch of times & did again a week back. I hit it well again last week & today Amazon gave it another price drop.

I'll let you know. I'm assuming they're gonna release another this year. It's been 2 years running with releases. Callaway got in the mix last year too. Anyway, it came out beginning March last year. Maybe another version being releases in a couple weeks but I haven't heard anything to this point.

All I gotta say about that outfit is, if you wear something like that, you damn well better have a real good game to back it up.

(I do kinda like it though.)
