Attach TAGS to your clubs

Attach TAGS to all clubs, including putter. Use a twisting motion to gently insert the post into the club grip. Do not over-tighten.

Tip: if you have particularly tight openings in the grips, use a tee to soften them up and/or add some water or lubricant when you put the tags in. If you have bigger than usual openings in the grips, thread some electrical tape for secure fit. 

Enable TAGS

Start Golf Pad app and open Preferences, then select Golf Pad LINK / TAGS 

Enable 'Golf Pad LINK / TAGS' and select 'Scan TAGS with your phone'

Assign clubs

Within the same screen, tap on "Assign club for a tag" and touch the tag against the top right edof the phone (this is where the antenna is located). 

Select the club from the list. Repeat for all clubs. 

You are all set, you can now start a round! See this page for instructions on how to use TAGS and Smart Lock during a round.
