If you have a ShotScope and have been using it a while to collect stats, I'm curious to hear just what and how you're looking at and using those stats. Other than the club distance measures... Which chart or graph or number is most important to you, and you primarily look at? How has that chart or graph or number informed and/or changed the way you practice and/or the way you plan shots on the course? I'm maybe a dozen or so, mostly 9 hole, rounds in with mine. After the initial cool factor ... I'm not sure I'm really loving it... A few perceived negatives - which may be addressed in future updates - include... GPS accuracy - am not 100% convinced on-course distances are 100% accurate. Took both a Garmin and a TomTom watch along to compare and while those two were generally within 0-2 yards of each other .. the ShotScope was frequently 3-5 and sometimes up to 10 yards different vs those other two. (No - not that it matters a whole lot to my game at this point...) Post-Round editing - I follow their instructions, re: take several practice swings next to the ball before each shot but it seems most rounds I still end up missing a shot or two, AND ... I'm always seeing tee or second shots or approaches in the wrong places (which could possibly be a result of a small GPS location error?) ....Plus you must remember to always check every second shot to mark as "Positional" when appropriate (ShotScope cannot do this automatically nor is there an on-board option to mark a shot as such). Data presentation - very limited flexibility in how you can view the shot data; would like to see much more user customization available .. especially when using their website. Anyway, I'll continue wearing it and collecting more stats for now (but my biggest improvements will come from improving my technique and my course management skills!) .. and really want to hear from others on how they're using the data ... Thx!
Hey everyone, just discovered this new tile which has been added to the Microsoft band. https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-band/en-us/support/health-and-exercise/golf-tile This is super exciting to me, as I have a band and when I had picked it up months ago, I was thinking to myself that this device has all the components needed in a golf tracker. GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope. Looks like it allows you to do the following - Track round at courses which Taylormade has created - Track shots automatically - Get GPS yardages - Post round analysis I have not had a chance to take it for a spin as yet. I thought I'd put this out here in case some of you have the band and want to try it out. In case you do it before I do, please share your experience. I will do the same. -Raj
