  • Driving range tgc

    What's the best driving range on tgc?.. I've been using Protees Sunday Range with the blimp flying over head which is cool. But is there one better than that.? ?? Which one do most of you warm up and practice on??? Like to have different range options... thanks guys.

    I like the ProTee edge ranges.... all 3 of them. Range 2 ProTee SFR, Mthunt ProTee driving range. These 5 are my favorite. Target greens.... I like Mthunt's. chipping and putting,,,, I like SFR. There is over 100 ranges, last time I checked.

      OK thanks keither.. I'll check them out.. I was looking for a good chipping range as well for short game and putting as well. Glad MT did those. The protee sunday range I use is good for the long game. So i just type in range in the search bar and these pop up correct??? Thanks.

        Yes, type in range and you will see about 13 pages of ranges to choose from. Or you can also build your own if you have the time.

        I like Mthunt's range for the short game. I hit a 9 iron to the middle and now you have about 8 greens to choose from ....40-130 yards. Just keep autorewind on and go from green to green.

          I tried it for the first time and really liked mt hunts protee driving range. Simple, no gimmicks, and good for all clubs in the bag.

            I like his for short game practice...... He needs to add a big green 5 yards away with multiple pins like SFR..... Did you here that Mthunt...... ETA on version 2?

            Mthunt...... do we have to wait for an upload .... I guess. Email me a screenshot when you get a chance.

            Thanks

          I created a range full of animals that fall over when you hit them. It also has yardage signs in 50 yard increments and numerous greens lining both sides. It's sort of fun. It's called The New Range at Hammond Farms.

            My eight year old daughter loves it.

          I use MThunts range too. It's works great.

          Are there any "putting" courses? I have never practiced putting but it might be nice if there was course that had 18 holes putting range from varying distances that would auto advance after I hit gimme range. Then I could also keep my score to see how I do. I still stink at putting on TGC, something like that would hopefully be more fun than putting on autorewind.

              So far for me the protee sunday range tgc works best. I was just looking for other options. .. it has the most targets to fire at.. the others I checked out not so much unless someone comes up with something better. Or I may have to design one.. if I ever have the time..

                The problem with the designer is the learning curve. The first thing I did was the range. Now I'm like "wow, I had no idea what I was doing". Part of that was I kept hitting the publish button.

                IMO, the best one is the one I just published. It's called "2017 mthunt ProTee driving range and short game" I just posted it so it's uploading.

                      I soon will get a used gc2 that has to be upgraded to use ipad fitting app. Until then, TGC (which I already have) seems to be only available option to see the ball flight from gc2. My question is will TGC interpret data correctly and generate an accurate ball flights and how it fared to the fitting app. Thanks so much for any response and suggestions on this matter.

                        I think every gc2 has Bluetooth just some are not compatible with Apple products. If you have TGC already, request access to using the gc2 with it (free). Then use One of the many ranges there. I never use the iPad app anymore. I would only use it if I wanted to do a club fitting

                        Yes, every GC2 has bluetooth. The GC2A is apple compliant. Unless, of course, your GC2's bluetooth radio was broken.

                        Thanks all for reply. I'm new to gc2 and haven't had enough time to learn more about it on this forum. If gc2 has bluetooth, that'd be great. I plan to use it for clubfitting and on the range for my son. I'll try it with android app then.

                      I have the gc2a. It is compatible with apple. But I use Windows . I find the data to be accurate with tgc. Whatever the display shows on the gc2 for launch and spin and ball speed and carry the same thing shows on the tgc. It does give you some club data as well. What it actually does is the gc2 measures ball data accurately then calculates club data on the tgc. Now the club data is an estimatation based on the spin of the ball. But to me it's enough data. I don't feel the need to spend another 7k for the hmt to get accurate club data. I think you'll be pleased with the gc2. A lot of us are and most of us have the gc2 tgc combo. I'm very happy with the set up.

                        Another thing to consider is when using this combo you have to have the gsx interface that works with the protee interface. Also the gc2 is calibrated for San diego weather conditions because foresight is based there. That being said it's set for 70° sea level and 50% humidity. I live in Vegas so my conditions are different 2200ft above sea level 10% humidity and higher temps. So my ball travels about 10 to 13 yards more. So in the gsx interface there is a series of sliders for your woods and irons and wedges that you can boost for accurate distance that your normally used to. For me I have the sliders set at +3 to compensate for my conditions. Hope that helps.

                          Contact ProTee. You need a new licence code. They'll also give you the downlink tool with GSX in it

                          I'm sorry I have to ask this stupid question. The "machine id" is a number specific to my computer or GC2?
