  1. To be clear, by no means should I ever be considered an expert in golf, but if you can hit a 1 iron consistently well (ie. in the fairway with decent distance) which is substantially more difficult to hit than a typical driver, I would think its an equipment issue. Like others have noted. I have had problems with some golf instructors in the past that try to make quick fixes, so I sympathize with you that some Pro's don't necessarily help you. I do believe LMs and video capture do help most Pros assess your swing properly. But sometimes their analysis can be wrong.
  2. I totally agree Rob! There is never any user error when you are low to mid handicapper… We always hit it flush and with a tour trajectory if it wasn’t for anomalies with our golf ball.
  3. Thanks for the Q&A Rob! That was great. I totally agree about your comments about not underestimating the look of a club at address.
  4. Quick update. After the first couple of 9 hole experiences, I have been using Caddie Link with pretty good success. I did find out that the jacket can’t cover the Link or it will not track my shots. Obviously, an easy fix. I have had the odd wedge shot not work / track for me. It seems to happen if it’s a soft wedge around the green. Arccos may think I was practicing or didn’t hit it. It’s easy to add shots later on the App Also, I would note with penalty strokes, its pretty easy to add that as well. My problem is generally not with shot tracking, but with putts. At the suggestion of the MGS Arccos user group, I stopped tapping ball marks with my putter which seems to eliminate most ghost putts. I am finding that I still have to manual change the pin positions since the Link (button pressing) is generally imprecise in positioning the pin on the green. I would say it’s pretty cool when another Arccos user is playing ahead of you. Since the pins are adjusted by the last user playing that day and you get to benefit from that. This has made my round easier. since it allows me to know distance to pin (without having to Laser it) and also tracks putting distances better as well. As a result of the GPS, the putting lengths are off sometimes by 5-10 feet but again it’s an easy fix since you can just manually enter the various putt lengths. The new putt tracking on the Arccos update let’s you track the number of putts and each length of putt. Still getting the odd extra putt. Not sure why. But again these are minor issues that can be changed on the App. Generally finding the Arccos system pretty good and the data it is producing for me is fantastic.
  5. Sounds like a fun round. Will reach out to try to set something up!
  6. Please let us know how it goes. I have the same shaft in 65 grams stiff in my TSi3. So I am thinking of replacing my FW shaft with a Tensei AV White 75 Stiff for my 16.5 deg FW.
  7. I will take some of these suggestions from the user group and try to find some potential solutions this week and I will report back. Thank you everyone for your Arccos experiences and your suggestions.
  8. Couldn't help but notice your profile photo.... Go Hoos!

  9. Thank you I will give that a try. Never thought of keeping my putter upside down on the green. That’s a great idea I forgot that I do repair ball marks sometomes with my putter if my repair tool doesn’t do the job.
  10. Didn’t realize that there was a Canadian thread. MGS has been great. I play out of Calgary and the season is sadly ending soon. It’s really too bad, since the conditions are still great out here, but it’s getting colder with some recent frost delays. We have lucked out with weather generally in Southern Alberta this year. Not too much smoke from BC either.
  11. Just posted this in the Official Arccos review, but I thought people on this thread might have ideas… Arccos’ tracking of putts was really a problem on my last round. Does anyone have a good trick on how to get the putter sensor and Link to work well on putts? Do I cover the sensor with my hand when I am waiting for my turn? It usually just adds more putts than I actually made, particularly if others are making short putts near me, etc. Or that’s what I think it’s doing. Hard to tell. I am manually adding or subtracting putts almost every time after each hole. Open to any and all suggestions?

  13. Post "First Impressions": Played a couple of 9 hole rounds and found a few more data points and some recurring issues: - Took my Garmin watch with me to see how accurate the yardages were compared to Arccos. Interestingly, there was a 1 - 7 yard difference between the two Apps with most yardages differing by 5 or so yards. Garmin was generally longer than the Arccos. Again, I didn't have my Garmin CT sensors on my clubs, only the Arccos sensors and the Link, so not sure if that made a difference in the accuracy of the Garmin. After lasering a few pins with my Bushnell, it appears the Arccos is more accurate on actual distances. - Shot misses on Arccos still seem to be fairly common on putts. In many cases it just doesn't record my shorter putts. Its too bad the microphone doesn't pick up the ball hitting the bottom of the cup. I would say on the plus side, I have not had any missed drives (Driver / FW) after my first round with Arccos. - I would also say the putter sensor (Non Super Stroke) that comes standard with Arccos has fallen off in my standup bag a few times already. One of the guys I was playing with thought I was upset since I started emptying my stand bag by putting it upside down and shaking it. Fortunately, I haven't lost the putter sensor yet, but it sticks out slightly from my Scotty Cameron Pistolini Plus grip. I can take a picture of it, if you are curious. I never had this problem with my CT putter sensor. - Sometimes I get extra putts with Arccos. I thought it was an issue with carrying 2 or 3 clubs to the green and it was confused. But with putts and green side wedges, it appears to pick up another member of the foursome if he or she hits a wedge shot in my area of the green, even if I am not practicing or swinging. It seems to record the other persons shot as my putt. For instance, I was on the green in reg on a par 3. Made a 2 putt and was walking off the green and I look at my Arccos and it says double bogey with a 4 putt. Had to remove 2 putts and re-enter my putt distances to accurately track my putting data. - I tried to add a missing hole on my Arccos App on purpose today by starting the App only on the second hole. I inputted the details of the first hole as a missed hole by adding all of my shots later. Unlike Garmin which won't allow you to add data for a missed hole, Arccos was painless. Extra points to Arccos. - One thing I am surprised by is that you can't run the Arccos App on the iPad. So you can only see your data and the holes on a web browser or the iPhone App. Garmin allows you to see your data on their App on an iPad. The reason why I point to this, is on one of my par 5 holes at my home course, the hole picture doesn't show the back tees, so you can't see the distance of the drive on the iPhone screen. Other Impressions: I am really enjoying the stats and the feature rich data on the course and after the round. Its accurately characterizing the weaknesses of my game overall or a particular round. It is also noting what went well in my round too. The analysis of how my game is trending is great too. Here are some of the trends identified by Arccos: I am very impressed with the distance to the pin data with the various factors involved in its calculation: temp, slope, altitude, wind direction / strength and how each variable adds or subtracts distance. It seems to be very accurate or may be its giving me confidence, so my approach shots have been better. Arccos has gotten me a few closest to the pin shots and won me a few dollars, but its too bad Arccos can't read my putts to make some Birdies.
  14. Found this lost puppy on the inventory shelf still in plastic at a great price. Love this Tensei blue shaft, so had to get it.
  15. RevKev, I am very sorry to learn of your loss. We had to put Brinkley down on Friday. We are still really sad about it. We always referred to him as our oldest son, but we had 13.5 years with him, so we feel blessed. Our 10 year old is choked up about losing his brother. It was very hard for all of us. Can't stop thinking about him when its a nice day outside.
