  • New GC2 / TGC Owner - Driver has way too much carry.

    Hi All,

    I know this has been discussed in multiple threads here on the forum. Most tend to address too little carry with a driver. Mine is the opposite.

    - Irons are spot on w/ TGC and GC2. Within 2 yards on average.
    - On the ProTee Sunday Range my driver is carrying 300yds on average with roll out to about 315yds, but, the GC2 shows carry of 265-ish.


    Is it as simple as adjusting my GSX driver carry settings from 0 to say, -14?

    I've seen people discussing adjusting their elevation settings? Is this possible?

    I'm in Michigan & the GC2 seems to be pretty close to real life results with roll out of closer to 285-290yds on average flat course for my area.

    I've researched every thread possible & can't seem to find many people WAY too much carry.

    Any other setup tips?

    Thanks!
    Paul

    pauleywauley ... Not a bad problem to have... This may be a range firmness range altitude setup by the designer of the range Interesting question. Have you played any courses and found long carry & roll outs? Where in Michigan are you? I am sure some one else will chime in. I have a GC2 on the way as well.

      Wyzyguy I'm in the Grand Rapids area. I did play a few holes on a course last night. I can't remember the course name, it was the "most played" or "highest reviewed" public course in TGC. I had my driver carry set at -14. From what I could tell it seemed pretty reasonable. A few high elevation tee boxes had driver distance of 325+ and then had some very short drives hitting uphill at about 225yds. Took some getting used to.

      I'll compare a few different ranges with Driver carry set to "0" and then adjusted to "-14" to see how they react and compare to the GC2 readings.

        Post everything the GC2 display says and post a picture of the post shot screen and I'll tell you what it is. Also, what version of TGC/ GSX and GC2 Firmware are you using?

        Make sure TGC "on" check marknis checked is gsx. I had mine unchecked and it added 30 yards to my driver until I realized I had done it. I had thought it just wouldn't work at all if that was checked but it did work and it added 30-40 yards to my drives above and beyond gc2 carry number on the LCD.

          You need it checked. The picture on this post will show it unchecked but it needs to be checked.

          I was surprised TGC even worked with it unchecked but it did and after a couple 300 yard carries.... I realized something was up.


          Here was my thread when I asked about it but it sounds exactly like your situation but it looks like others haven't run into that problem before.

          Gotcha! I'll report back

        Here's the update guys. It seems as though Stingreye was right on with the check box. Yardages on the GC2 are within a yard or two of a flat range on TGC. Seems to be all set now. Thanks for the help, everyone! 👍🏻
