So, a little more detail I didn't share from my intro...I'm extremely excited about finally having some Strokes Gained data to support my practice and overall improvement efforts.

As I posted, I'm a quite busy husband, officer, student, and father of 3...my practice time is precious, and getting out for a round doesn't nearly as often as I'd like.  Then, of course, once I'm actually able to get out for a round, the "what hole are you on" texts start coming and I inevitably sprint from the 18th to the truck to get home because one of three kids has to get to whatever practice or activity they need to get to.

Long build up to show you this, a screenshot of the Analysis tab for entering your post round data in the DECADE Elite program:

1381473419_DecadeStrokesGained.PNG.941f25a1a1c1cae7d70a165f8cda9006.PNG

I know that's not the best picture; I'm not expecting anyone to read it as much as recognize that it's a lot, and I have grudgingly learned that it's just not realistic to think that I'm going to be a guy that can sit down and manually enter a bunch of info post-round...life gets in the way.  (If your mind goes to "well then why did you pay that much for DECADE Elite, I didn't, which is another story.)

So, I'm extremely excited for Arccos to help me have some data and analytics in a convenient and easy manner, and part of my review will be seeing whether or not Arccos lives up to that promise.

This is definitely part of the reason I enjoy it as well. Easy digestible data, already generated.

Looking forward to seeing everyones day to day data!

I wonder who is going to have fewest putts in their first round with the system. Putting is something that can be trick with Arccos, but once you are use to I do find it quite intuitive. Curious to hear your thoughts on it as the test goes on.

Yes and making sure you are tracking it is important. Data will be very skewed if not.

Some of the upgrades like the walking path on the green is very helpful. I can see where I look at a putt and where I putt from very easily.

I agree with the comments around putting.  The Link is great for making sure you get each putt recorded and the location on the pin with the button.

Interesting; I’m looking forward to how well the system works in capturing the putts, but “fewest putts” as a stand-alone statistic is debatable.  If your GIR is low and you’re getting up and down a lot, it’s debatable that you necessarily putted better than a guy who had a high GIR and two-putted a lot, no?

I understand your pessimism, I had the same view before Arccos and I had used Garmin for my stats before.  The difference is that Arccos studies the length of putt made, putting trends, and other data to provide a comprehensive view on my putting.  

It actually tells me that  suck at 0-10 footers on a consistent basis.  It seems that my SG analysis consistently points to my shortcomings in this area and its not GIR, approach shots, etc. Interestingly, my short game consisting of bunkers and short chip shots is actually better consistently (on SG basis) than my short to medium putts.  I always thought my bunker play was brutal, but its actually not bad when it takes into account proximity to the hole, etc.  Its my putting that's bad.

Sounds great, and I’m really excited to get those same insights. 
My comment was intended to express skepticism towards “fewest putts” as a measure of putting ability though, not to comment on the Arccos system.  
And on that point, fewest putts is a fun and worthwhile metric to strive towards lowering, I’m just saying sometimes further analysis is needed.

Overall I really like having this on my clubs. It's working great (with the phone in pocket) and I'm not overwhelmed by the data. I actually find myself reviewing rounds at night on the couch. I still don't totally get strokes gained, but I think it's showing me about what I expected to see. It was a breeze to set up and once it's set up you don't need to do anything, just turn the app on and go play.

But I do have two issues with it

1. The link does not work well at all. I played the first 3 rounds with the link clipped to my belt. The first round wasn't bad, but the other two I had to input 20+ shots after each round. The last two rounds I played I left the link at home and had the phone in my pocket. I only had to adjust the distance on maybe a handful of putts.

2. The course display is almost impossible to see on a sunny day. Even with brightness turned all the way up on the phone, it's still so dark that if there's any sun I can't see anything on the screen. They need some sort of contrast to lighten this up.
