CoolJust wondering if anyone has tried Arccos Golf. Being a gadget nut I decided to order it and will get to try it out on Monday. I try to track most f my shots but wasn't including a lot of information and as this uses the gps on my iPhone to track where every shot goes I'm anxious to see the results and will report back here how well and accurate it is. Don't know why I get into all the gadgets but what the heck. I know one guy with Game Golf but I didn't like the idea of always having to tap to register shots.

Ha Ha!!!!!

Actually got to try the system out today and I'm really impressed with the accuracy and ease of use.  I did have to add a couple of strokes that didn't get recorded when I chunked a shot and the ball didn't go far enough as it records the last shot within about a 5 yd. area and I had two of those  Frown.  When you look at the results with the shots all drawn out it's very neat to see where the shots did go and their distances.  You can also get all the stats that you want which are automatically produced.  I only occasionally looked at my phone to see if it was recording the shots and found it did this very good.  You do have to take the time on the gimme type putts and just pause a couple of seconds before tapping in.  So for my first round using it I think it's neat.  Is it needed, probably not but there are lots of other things that we buy that aren't needed.

Well I've now got 13 rounds in using Arccos Golf system and if you're a stats person it's pretty good.  As this measures distance for each shot and then plots out the average distance of each club.  It drops the bad shots and really long ones and gives what's called a Smart Distance.   This distance is about 5 or 6 yards from what I thought I hit my clubs and I think is a very accurate result.  I think the few yards are due to there not being much roll.  I was one to keep track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and number of putts but this now does it without me having to do much.   

There are a few things I haven't liked.  Battery life on a few clubs wasn't good but after talking to the company I got that sorted out.  If you're going to do much practice the sensors should be removed.  The one day I spent a couple of hours putting it ran the battery down.  Most of the batteries in clubs are still fine.  I've also found occasionally when chipping that the shot might not be hard enough (or good enough) for the sensor to pick it up so you have to manually add it which is a minor inconvenience.  Gimme putts and penalty strokes are easy to add in manually also.

I have to comment about the companies service as so far it has been excellent.  After emailing them a couple of times I've had responses within the hour and even when I called them I got a human that could answer my questions.  The one problem with battery life really bothered me but they responded by sending me some extra batteries which I had within two days.  Now that I know how to deal with it there shouldn't be the same problem again. 

I'm sure most people can do manually using a gps what this system can do but for me I'm enjoying using it and seeing the results after each round.  I can also look at the hole maps and recall where every shot went and what holes are a problem for me.
