GAMEGOLF uses GPS technology and NFC technology to track your location on the course and every club used during a round. The GAME GOLF Tags are assigned to specific clubs by the golfer upon activation. The golfer wears the device on the waist and before each swing, “tags” the butt end of the club, where the tag is located, to the device. This registers the shot. Every shot will be recorded on each hole played during a round. At the end of play, the golfer syncs the device to a computer, where GAME GOLF displays the rounds on a map for post round review. Golfers will see total score, fairway accuracy, greens-in-regulation, approach shot accuracy, scramble percentage, sand saves, putts and average club distances.

Game Tracking System
Where did you get the inspiration for your product?
(GAME GOLF was created and founded by John McGuire, CEO and Founder of Active Mind technology) I have been an entrepreneur for the past 15 years, with a background in software engineering as well as in the field of behavioral psychology. I was fascinated by the mental side of performance (as it relates to sport) and with my dual background, developed the idea for a sports-speciic wearable-tech and software that helps you improve your game by understanding your game – and the psychology that goes with it.
What differentiates your product from similar products out there?
GAME GOLF created a new category that did not previously exist; wearable technology as it relates to sport had really been confined to the general fitness space. We launched in 2014 and since then, have continued to evolve the product and the features/benefits that go with it so we are always innovating and leading the golf wearable category. Specifically, GAME GOLF integrates seamlessly with a golfer's game; it does not require a smart phone and can be used in tournament play. You will continue to see new technology and innovative thinking as it relates to GAME GOLF on an ongoing basis.
Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.
The challenge of building a consumer product that appeals to all golfers and that can truly help them improve by understanding their game, and at the same time be easy to use, has been a fantastic design challenge. The entire GAME GOLF team is energized every day to meet this challenge and create the most innovative product on the market.

I won't say much here, as the GAME GOLF website ([...]) has a handy video explaining the setup (and much more). But I will say that it's as easy to set up as it is to use. Simply screw the corresponding red tag flush into the handle of each club, complete the online registration, charge the device, and you're good to go.
*Ease of Use*
"Tag and go" might sound too good to be true, but it is true. After you turn on the device, and the white light (alone) begins to blink, tag the butt end of each club to the bottom of the device at the location of your shot, hit the shot, go to your next shot, and repeat. It's that simple (you don’t even have to select the course you’re playing; the device figures that out for you). The hard part, at least at first, is remembering to tag. Within a round or two, however, it becomes second nature. Because tagging (which captures both (1) which club you're hitting and (2) the location from which you're hitting it--i.e., the two inputs that allow GAME GOLF to compile most every statistic you could ever want) is so critical to performance of the device, the device includes three different indicators of a successful tag. Upon tagging, the device beeps (loud enough for you to hear, but quiet enough to not bother player partners), vibrates, and turns green. If you don't hear a beep or feel a vibration and are unsure of whether you have tagged, check the device to see if the green light is on. If you tagged, the green light remains on for 60 seconds. Therefore, if you look down and the green light is not on, odds are you forgot to tag--so tag again. As for when to tag, you can do it before or after your shot, as long as you tag at the location of your shot. I have played 22 rounds with the device, and, from the beginning, have tagged as the first move in my pre-shot routine. I pick my club, stand next to the ball, and, while checking out my lie, tag the device. Then I take my practice swing and go. I would advise tagging before you hit, as opposed to after, because the mind is often less attentive after you hit (especially if you hit a bad shot). As for where to place the device, I have found it easiest--and least intrusive--on the outside of my left hip (I'm a righty). I never feel it there (whereas when I placed it closer to my midsection, I would feel it while bending down to read putts, pick up tees, etc.). Note that the device is very sensitive, so if you are wearing a sweater or rain jacket, you don't need to lift the sweater/jacket before tagging; the tag will go right through your clothing with ease.
*Ease of Editing*
The post-round editing process is fun, if for no other reason than that you get to do what you would do anyway (relive your round), but with images and statistics to confirm your every move. You plug your device into your computer (for now, you cannot plug your device into a tablet or phone), the GAME GOLF transfer software automatically opens, and you click on the button that downloads your round(s) (the device stores up to 9 rounds at a time, making it usable during buddies trips where you leave your computer at home). Once the round has been downloaded (it takes 1-2 minutes), click the view button and you will be taken to the GAME GOLF website. There, you will see your round visually depicted and overlaid onto a Google Earth image of the course you just played. It's like Shot Tracker on PGATour.com, but better (because you're seeing the actual hole, not a graphical computerized image of it). You can then edit your round to ensure that all shots were tagged (you can easily add or delete shots, including penalty strokes), and tagged in the right location (you can easily move the location of each shot). Sometimes, the location is off by even more than the advertised standard deviation. But, instead of getting frustrated, just move the location of your shot and remember that, even for the pros, Shot Tracker occasionally gets it wrong. After you have finished editing your round, click "sign your round" and the real fun then begins. The folks at GAME GOLF will take the data from your rounds and populate all the statistics you usually try to track in minuscule writing on your scorecard (fairways hit, greens in regulation, scrambling) and many more. You can also share, and comment on, your round with your friends or with pros.
*Benefits of Use*
The benefits of GAME GOLF are many. Having all of your rounds available electronically in one place (i.e., no more piles of scorecards stuffed in shoeboxes) is a huge convenience. And being able to share your rounds with friends and compare yourself to them (and to professionals) is great fun—and, let’s face it, what all golfers do anyway. As for the "will it make me a better player?" question, I say yes. First, the tagging process (and the knowledge that every shot you hit will be recorded and tracked) adds a certain seriousness to playing that is otherwise absent. With seriousness comes added focus and, typically, better results. Second, the statistics that the product generates will help you better understand how far you actually hit, and therefore should be hitting, each club (the "club performance" graphic is probably the coolest statistic currently provided) and what your tendencies are. Although the statistics currently provided are rather basic (driving distance, fairways hit, greens in regulation, scrambling percentage, putts per round, percentage of 1-putts, 2-putts, 3-putts, and percentage of pars, bogeys, double bogeys, triple bogeys), the genius of the product is that the company can continue to generate all the various more complicated statistics available while never having to change the device itself. That is, unlike many technologies (e.g., the iPhone), you won't have to keep upgrading your hardware (i.e., the device and the tags)—and spending money--with GAME GOLF. Instead, all of the improvements will be to the software. If you're not satisfied with the statistics currently provided, remember that it took the PGATour years to develop ShotLink (the professional equivalent of GAME GOLF) and the statistics that the data it collects can generate. In just a few months, GAME GOLF has already added many new statistics that I and other customers have suggested. So just be patient and appreciate how amazing GAME GOLF already is. The company’s commitment to getting better is what ensures that GAME GOLF will fulfill its near-infinite potential.
Although GAME GOLF has GPS built in, it doesn't display yardages during your round--meaning that you need to carry another device (i.e., one of the many DMDs, or distance-measuring devices) if you want to measure distances. That would be the only change to the hardware I could see in the future (i.e., adding a yardage display to the top of the device), but I also appreciate GAME GOLF's desire to do what it does best and leave the rest to other products. Google spread itself too thin over the last few years with too many new products, and then realized it was best to scale back to what made it so good. So this is a minor complaint. The only other "flaw" is the current lack of putting and other more advanced statistics. But that, too, is a minor complaint, because more advanced putting statistics are necessary only if you're good enough to be a professional, and the other more advanced statistics are currently being worked on by the GAME GOLF staff. Again, because they have all the inputs to provide those statistics, it's just a matter of time before they provide them. One statistic that is currently lacking but that should be very easy to provide is handicap. It is currently an input (i.e., in filling out your user profile, you plug in your handicap), but it should be an output—and will be more accurate—based on your scores and the courses you play (both of which GAME GOLF captures). But when I mentioned this to the GAME GOLF staff, they said they were working on that, too. Again, they know they have room to improve, and they are doing everything in their power to do so. That is all you can ask for in a technology (or any) company.
This is the best part of GAME GOLF. Considering how good everything else is, that's saying a lot. I have NEVER seen a company more responsive to the needs and demands of customers. This was true from the start. I didn't receive my GAME GOLF before I left for a golf trip to Tucson this February, so the GAME GOLF folk rerouted my device to arrive at my hotel in Tucson. Although, as with many companies these days, there is no phone number to call, their customer-service folk are incredibly responsive via email (and via the user forums on the "support" page of the website). Every single person I’ve dealt with has been a pleasure and has fully answered my questions and concerns.
I had previously attempted to track my rounds with a few different phone apps (most recently SkyCaddie). But I find that a few holes into a round, it just gets to annoying to have to turn on your phone, unlock it, tag your shot etc etc. It messes with your routine. I could never get myself to tag an entire round.
With Game Golf, you just have to remember to tap the grip to your belt. No phone required. I forgot to tag 4 shots in my first round, and the web-site made it fairly painless to add those missed shots when reviewing the round.
My shot data appeared pretty accurate, with a couple of shots appearing just a few feet wrong on the course map. One hole, a short par 3, had the primary tee box under repair. So we had to tee off about 50 yards away in a temporary tee box. I thought that would mess up Game Golf, but the shot appeared just fine in the website, from the temporary tee.
The only thing that threw me off a bit is there is no way to enter a penalty shot while on the course. So I had to remember those when editing the round on the PC afterwards. I may attempt to double-tag each penalty shot just as a reminder.
The simplicity of this thing is the key feature. Using it did not feel like a chore.
My only PERSONAL gripe is that the battery on my unit seems to drain pretty fast. I'll charge it up, play my round and it says "low" when I get home. Its not a BIG deal, since I charge it before every round, but I DO worry that one day the battery won't make it through a full round. Maybe I should contact Active Mind....
