Had a great range session today and since I was going to have a hard time getting on the course tomorrow, I played today. Well, the slump is still in full effect. Shot a robust 57/55 for 112 hitting 4 fairways and zero greens with 37 putts. 

Driver was decent, when it was on, it was on fire. When it wasn't, I wanted to set it on fire. I had lots of just straight up nasty lefts. I also hit my second and third longest drives recorded on Arccos. Screenshot_20210501-200103-01.jpeg.a665c3fa38ce03920628b012322c673d.jpegScreenshot_20210501-200121-01.jpeg.d3c52ca1ec9ffffa167795b70422001c.jpeg

As you can see, my iron play was horrendous. I was either pulling them or shanking. My wedge game over 30 yards wasn't too good either, but if you put me inside 25 yards, I was deadly. I had 4 short chips scare the hole and was hitting some nasty @Shankster low spinny shots. Those shots are just fun to hit. If I can get my iron game figured out, I think I can get into the low 90's and even possibly high 80's. 

I was playing solo and stuck behind a foursome that didn't know the meaning of "do you want to play through? ". They were slow and it got me all out of whack. 

My game will get there and I'll really appreciate it once I get things straightened out. It was a beautiful day just to be outside and I've got a couple of days I'm taking off work next week that will be good to play again. 

Keep on keepin on man you’ll get there. Good wedge play is secretly becoming the favorite thing in my game. Low spin and check is a beautiful thing to watch

You ain't kidding about the hop and check, it's just something to see. I had one on the fourth hole with the green running downhill. I opened up the wedge, hit the shot, and watched it hit, spin and go slightly left, and stop around 4 feet from the hole. It was mesmerizing.

Were you playing or describing my game??? 🤣 

How do you like the Arccos? Do you have any issues with missing shots? I played 6 rounds so far and seems like every hole it misses a drive or a pitch. I also feel like it doesn't track putts very well for me even when I mark the hole location with caddie link. I use it for the GPS too so I feel like I'm getting distracted by it making sure shots are logged when getting ready for my next shot.

I love Arccos, it gives me an honest and brutal assessment of how I'm playing and where I need to improve. I do occasionally have issues with missing shots. Yesterday on the 10th hole it didn't pick up my drive or my second shot and I had to manually input them. After that, it picked up the rest of my shots on the hole and for the round. 

The main thing you have to watch for is the duffed chip that goes about 5 feet, Arccos won't pick up shots within a certain distance of each other. It can also, as you said, be a bit of a distraction on the green.

I don’t always tell others to follow my habits.  But in this case, I think you should ‘ 

Heck, you have me thinking I need to buy new ones.  Mine are two years old!! 

One of the wedges I regularly use, when lofts permit, is over 30 years old.  It performs rather nicely.  😊
