Worked like a charm. LA was off by 4 to 5 degrees. Ran the program and it was as good as new.

How do you run this with windows 10? I downloaded the drivers but it only goes up to windows 8

It should still work. What happens when you run it?

Btw, I had to run the calibration on my GC2 today. Was seeing big side spin numbers lately, even when the swing felt right. After calibration, all is good again.

Okay cool thanks man. I actually never tried to click windows 8 hah. I was afraid I'd mess something up. I'll try it now.

I've been loving GC2 with PG though! Played a few holes, but really i've been loving the range and dialing in all my clubs

So I ran the software. Now it seems my wedges are all hooks. It was never that way before. I even mean the small chip shots. 15 yards. I hit it and it hits my screen straight but the GC2 shows it going to the left. I am like what the heck

Are the spin numbers weird? Maybe it read your club? Try calibration again? setup good?

Setup has not changed. numbers looked good. Its weird it only happens with the wedges. Driver and long irons etc are fine. Just slow chips etc. I will try the software again. Does it tell you somewhere what it fixed? I only see it say finished.

All the calibration does is when you use it you need to have the unit 100% flat so that it will calibrate to that as being a level surface. From there once you are done and take it somewhere where the ground may not be level, the unit will adjust for that compared to what you had it set when you did the calibration.

As far as wedges go it is easy to pull a wedge a foot off line compared to your hitting screen and what you think is center, and then see quite a pull in the sim. If you can chip a 8 iron to the center of your screen or where ever you think center is and if that is within 1 deg you are good.

The only time I see the GC2 really pull a shot is when the white off a club or even a tag on the shaft can be picked up by the GC2 and thus think the ball went left (as a right handed golfer). This will end up being a 20 plus deg off line left displayed on the GC2 and a real crappy shot in the sim.

ok, I will check that again. My one wedge does have white on it. I wonder if that is what is catching the GC2.

After sending my GC2-T unit back to Foresight because it was all wacky with it's readings, DO NOT. I repeat do not use the tilt tool with the GC2-T.

They are pre calibrated and running the tilt tool can and will screw it up.

great that explains what is going on with my wedges. All over the place. So what was going on with yours?

Maybe I need to send mine in to be fixed

The shorter clubs specifically wedges were showing crazy high left spin numbers resulting in uncontrollable hooks.

great that is exactly what i was complaining about. How do you fix it. I sent a support request and the person wants me to send a screen shot with the readings. The problem is I am using PG and TGC not their software. So will they help me?

can't its a GC2-T . There is no display. Since it is software there has to be a fix. Any suggestions.
