Well, 2 rounds in the books with Game Golf.  I can see how this little thing can be useful. 

 

Not to mentioning addicting. 

 

Pros: Love being able to "relive" the round while posting, and adding in my penalty shots.  Also good to know distances - it's hard to get an idea of how far you're hitting the ball on the range, but this thing does give you some good info.

 

It also doesn't lie - you get the good, the bad and the ugly.  It doesn't show you everything, but it does a nice job with what it does do.

 

Cons: 2nd round in and I was more comfortable "tagging" shots.  First round I'd forget and have to re-tag.  It's actually easy if you forget - just go back to where you hit the shot and tag.  As long as you do it before the next shot, you're okay.  Couple of times I forgot to tag putts, but remembered after holing out.  I went to where I hit the two putts and tagged, and all was good.  Had to do that with some full shots too.

 

Here's a look at some of the screen shots:

Just thought of something. Can you enter something about course conditions for the round? How about wind velocity and direction?

 

Not expecting miracles but I'm curious about those features.

 

Thanks

That's a good question, Rev.  Not sure -- haven't come across it yet, but I haven't been looking for it, either.  Will check it out when I post my next round this weekend.  

 

It was pretty funny -- I played with two random guys this morning.  We had a hell of a good time together, but it wasn't until we were teeing off on the 4th hole that one of the guys asked me why I kept stabbing myself in the gut with my club before swinging.  Had to lift the pullover so he could see the Game Golf thingy.  

 

He had a laugh over that - and then really got a kick out me trying to AimPoint.  He thought I was trying to use "The Force."  Sometimes you meet up with some really fun folks.  These guys were a hoot!

Think you can put it in the notes section of a round, but don't think there's anything you can really input into the system. 

the bardes thing for me is knowing that I hit a lot of rescue shots that don't go the full distance or are just trying to get out of a jam. Those will throw averages off, but the cool thing is the GG shows you groupings of how far you hit most clubs.

I don't know if I need graphic representation of hitting from the 7th fairway to the 4th green ;)

Ok, i will admit it. I had to look up AimPoint to see what it was. 

 

How has the short game improved since you began using it?

I never remember to tag my shots, so when I play, I end up shooting 16 on a par 72.

Will actually be using the app this Saturday for the first time. Interested to see how it works for me after reading the reviews.  

 

Get in touch with TXSTCATMAN,  he lives up in Phlugerville (he is on this thread and has the same system).  Maybe you guys can pair up this weekend.

I'll try again. I have two of these GG things I'd love to get rid of. Any takers? Send me a private message.

Thanks

Missed the hookup for the weekend with TXSTCMAN. Playing in Bastrop on Saturday if anyone feels froggy.

I've got family in town this weekend or I'd make it happen!
