Congrats on the new best round!

It’ll help so much when you come back down to reality in competition.

Thanks mate 😄 Not quite an all-time best, I'm saving that for when I'm swinging the Cobras 😁😎

Here's that screenshot, you can do it even if you're not at the course just by hitting "start round." Great for plotting out a course you've never played before.

An extra tip I've found adding shots around the green is to click the green view for putting/flags then edit from there to add a flub err chip 😎 You can still place wedge shots outside the green area.

Yesssss this is what I needed. I knew I was just missing something. I wonder how they expect people to know the long press thing for yardage to a target that isn't the green...? Did I also miss a tutorial or something in startup? Even the academy on their website didn't have instructions for it. Hmmm

 

Also I swear I tried using the normal zoom in thing several times. That being said it is 85 here now when I golf so it could just be that there was some moisture on my screen confusing the gestures.

Well done!

Has anyone used their Arccos for a scramble?  Just wondering if I should even bother turning the system on this morning or just enjoy the round since I would have to delete the stats anyway.

Let it play! Let's see how good your team does. I've always been curious what a scramble handicap looks like. 

After, you can tap "Exclude from Statistics" so the round remains but it won't annihilate your HC.

It’s fantastic in a scramble! If your team is any good that is. You come home with some of the best handicap data ever.

I really like the Arccos product, but am kinda annoyed with the fee structure. I'd personally rather pay a little more upfront, for no surprise fees down the road. To be clear on the fees, (because their website is NOT) the 360/caddie sensors are one year free and then $99 and the grips are one month free and then $99. Correct?

Awesome round!

As they say, shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll still land among the stars! (Although in this case, if you miss, you'll just land in the trees and find yourself in last 😁)

Whew busy day for me in this thread. Here's what I found:

Based on your desires, I'd say the sensors are your best value. So far, the customer support has been very helpful replacing broken sensors so I'd guess they'll last you for a few years if you can control your urge to buy any new replacement products they come out with in the future.

Maybe Cobra can send you 14 wedges, looks like that would benefit you most.

Finished 5th out of 9 teams in the scramble this morning.  My three playing partners were all 65+ so it was pretty much up to me if we wanted a tee shot more than 200 yards.  Putting handicap was pretty good considering we had 4 tries at every putt.

When I was in the clubhouse enjoying an after round beverage my Ring doorbell gave me a notification of someone at my front door.

That's exciting! Nothing like getting boxes delivered, it's like Christmas in May.

I'm a +4 at sh*t talking! @Nunfa0 is a good dude and I know he won't take it personal. Saw an opportunity so I took it

That's a great idea!! 14 one length wedges from 9* to 60*. Maybe someone should mention it to Bryson 😜😁😎

I went to the range today and the club pro was giving lessons to the guy next to me. He had the F9 one lengths and boy was he struggling with them. He moved to the driver and the pro had him wait until the fairway on the right cleared before he’d let him hit. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a slice like his.

I wanted to hit his clubs so bad but I left them alone.

Oooh, it's always exciting to get new sticks, one of the best feelings in golf!

 Y'all also might benefit from 56 wedges between y'all. 😉

So far, I'd agree you are a +4. Nunfa0 is great, I've given him plenty of crap in this thread already, and he hasn't strangled me (yet). 😜

Clearly, you've never seen me hit a slice. 

I would have loved for you to hit them too, someone tell @bardle to hurry up and get/hit his one lengths!

Just keep the comments and fun coming boys, I have broad shoulders and can take it 😁😎

On another note the matchplay team I have played for a few times this year won the competition today 😄😁. I didn't play but went along and caddied for my brother. He won his game after a back and forth fight.

They arrive on Tuesday! 

I probably won't hit them for a while though while I build my baseline. If they were conventional I might but I don't want to get used to the one lengths and negatively skew my baseline switching back to my old gamers. I don't want anyone to have an excuse when I win this thing. 

It's gonna take so much willpower to ignore the new shiny things and keep going with my current clubs. 😬

Took about 50 pictures of the new clubs this morning before I get them all dirty.  I still have one more baseline round to get in (hopefully later this week) before fully breaking these bad boys out.  It's going to be extremely difficult to have them sit in my house and not use them.

I'll post more pictures over the next few days along with my thoughts on how they compare to my current clubs.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present a few pictures from the winning bag!
