Some of golfers' favorite words: "It's in the hole!" "Split the fairway!" "You're dancing!" "It's dry." (OK, that last one isn't the best news, but if you're in tho

Eric T - Portland, OR 

I've used many GPS devices: 

  • Watches:
    • Garmin Approach S3
    • Motorola MOTOACTV Golf Edition
  • iPhone apps:
    • Golfshot GPS 
    • 18 Birdies Premium 
    • SkyDroid
  • Web platforms (more for yardage book planning): 
    • provisualizer(dot)com
    • Google Earth 
  • Club-attached
    • Arccos 

My current method of determine yardage is 3-parts:

  • I leave 18 Birdies running on my phone through the round, I use it for blind shots or easily calculating layup distances. I also use 18 Birdies to track my stats.
  • I leave the Garmin watch running on my cart or attached to my bag for a quick glance at the distance.
  • For general shots, tee shots, or if I'm near a landmark like a tree or hazard, I consult my self-made yardage book as it contains notes

Yes - Arccos on Apple Watch 

Currently Arccos on Apple Watch 

Being a Arccos user and playing over 14 rounds in the last month I think I’m uniquely qualified to be a tester. I’m a tech person, detail oriented and take great photographs. Let’s do this!

Have used several GPS devices during my 40-some years of playing golf

Pat Webster & I’m located in Pinehurst, NC

I am a caddie at Pinehurst Resort, I used to use the Sky Caddie v2 all the time looping. I eventually broke it but it is the best golf watch out there. 

I currently use a Bushnell v4 Slope Edition while looping/playing but have tried my Apple Watch & was not a fan of that layout. Love the layout of this watch. I would definitely enjoy the opportunity to give some very in depth feedback.
