  1. As far as I know, Apple Watch is the only smart watch that works with Arccos.
  2. The F9's count as an answer to this question?
  3. This is a very reasonable way to use the Arccos system and work around some of the problems. Do you look at your phone during the round for distances, or use a different device for that?
  4. You seem to be echoing a sentiment from quite a few people. What frustration is it causing you?
  5. Good luck swinging with snow shoes on your feet!
  6. @Wedgie I'm curious as to what you mean by "freed up my game" Is it something like you have a baseline of data from Arccos and Garmin, now you are able to set those devices aside and use that information to make better decisions on the course, or is it that your mind on the course is no longer wondering if the shot was picked up and your focus can be purely on the task at hand because you are no longer using those devices?
  7. I struggle to see how getting "more fit" would negatively impact one's game any worse than getting "less fit" BD has always been very deliberate and "scientific" (some of it may be made up) in his approach to the game of golf. As long as he is still able to cash checks, then this body transformation worked for him. I am not a big BD fan, but I appreciate that he approaches the game from a different perspective and succeeds with it.
  8. @JohnSmalls I'm hearing more and more from people that Arccos is giving people issues. I have been fortunate that I haven't experienced them yet, but that could be due to the fact that I'm in offseason mode now with the weather in MI. I wonder if something happened with Apple pushed the new update and Arccos hasn't been able to adapt to it yet.
  9. Quite a good bit of advice here, and it pretty much covers how I prepare for different greens. I play at quite a few different courses and green speed is always the biggest learning curve the first few holes. I spend the first 3-4 holes ensuring that I have the speed correct to make no more than a 2 putt. From there, if I feel dialed in on the speed, I then start attacking the hole. Before a round, I will practice 3 footers, 10 footers, and 30 footers to try and understand the green speeds that day, but I have found that the practice green can lie to you sometimes. I do try to end the practice with five 1 foot putts just to hear the sound of the ball dropping in the hole before the round begins to boost my confidence before the first tee.
  10. I used to have a temper on the course because my expectations did not match my reality. I have only thrown a club one time, and most of my outbursts were just some swearing loudly. Thankfully, I have changed my reactions on the course, and not surprisingly, I play much better when I am in control of my emotions. The best outburst that I have seen on the course was when someone was playing tennis with their chip shots. Back to back to back to back skulls across the green. Walking to his ball after the 4th time, he grabbed the flag as he walked by and hurled it like a javelin into the woods. It probably didn't help his temper that our group just laughed at him, but we were entertained.
  11. 1 - I look at the ball or just ahead of the ball to avoid having my eye influenced by the look of the club at address. Also, I look at the launch monitor results to influence if I like the look of a club or not. I may be lucky that I have never played blades, so I don't see the differences in GI clubs as "off putting" 2 - Yes! If it works for you, play it. Whether it's OEM throughout the entire bag, or a different OEM for all 14 clubs, play what works for you.
  12. I have had quite a few folks ask about my Cobra set up, but am unsure if any purchases have followed yet. I do beat the drum for Cobra if anyone asks, because they make a phenomenal product and people should give them a shot when they are looking for something new. For Arccos, two of my friends have begun to use it based on seeing me use it on the course and the data that it returns. Personally, I used the reviews to help inform me if I'm barking up the right tree or not with a club purchase. I don't see my bag changing too much going forward as I am thrilled with the set up, but the TA3 putter in the bag is due purely to the reviews on the forum.
  13. I went on a golf trip this past weekend and we played 91 holes. It was an absolute blast! The weather was not ideal as the sun barely made any appearances from behind the gray clouds, but it did not dampen our spirits. I was just happy to have survived in one piece and was playing as good of golf on the first 18 as the last 18. These were all new courses to me, and I was able to break 90 in the two individual rounds. There were plenty of scrambles and shambles as well to allow us to stay relatively intact.
  14. I'm in the same boat as you @robertson153. I am using the Callaway Rogue exclusively and the F9 doesn't come out to play anymore. The rest of the lineup is secure in my bag and I don't foresee any changes to that. I'm really enjoying my rounds on the course and the extra confidence that this set gives me. I was on a golf trip this past weekend and there were multiple times where I would look at the intended landing spot and just know that I had that shot. The clubs give me an extra boost of confidence in situations that would have scared me before.
