Has anyone dug into Shot Scope's new Strokes Gained feature? I got an email on it today. It uses PGA Tour pros as the benchmark, so I'm betting we all have shots lost! I think this is what Arccos offers, right? Arccos seems well established although I hear it does not play nice with Apple Watch.
Does anyone have any idea when Shotscope will begin taking orders, or shipping V3?
Hello fellow golfers! So I have used Shot Scope v2 for 2 rounds, so far, and I love it. I haven't used Pro mode yet, just GPS and Tracking. It was fun to see the data after my first round using it. My second round I think the GPS was confused as one of the holes showed my approach landed on a different hole/green that was beside the one it should have been on. I am going to try Pro mode next round I think. Here' my first 2 round this year, below. I wish it had a better sharing option. Last year I used Hole19 app all year. I like that app and that it emailed my round to me afterwards and I was able to share to Facebook. With Shot Scope I had to improvise, so I used the Windows tool "Snipit" and cut out the scorecard to share on my socials.
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!
