Arccos updates Caddie App to include ball model data analysis

10.52am 13th December 2021 - New Products

Arccos Golf has launched the first on-course golf ball data capture system, enabling Arccos Caddie app users to track and compare their performances across different golf ball models. 

This latest update gives users the ability to select the make and model of golf ball they will play for any given round. Built around a simple user interface that includes a default option, the system then tracks player performance with specific ball types to fuel future analysis. It also offers the option to identify tournament rounds and intuitive course search.

“This is the initial step in our process of analysing how a player’s ball selection may impact every aspect of their game, from equipment choices to club selection and even in-play strategy,” said Dave LeDonne, Arccos’ Vice President of Product, who recently joined the company from Google. “It’s enabling the smartest system in golf to become even smarter by helping unlock true golf ball performance comparisons based on real, on-course shot data rather than what’s captured on a range or in a simulator.”

Arccos Caddie users now also have the option to identify their round as being played under ‘casual’ or ‘tournament’ conditions. The latter automatically enables Arccos’ ‘Tournament Mode’, making the system’s use Permitted under The Rules of Golf.  This allows players and their coaches to more easily compare how they play under pressure, so they can take their game from guessing to knowing. 

The answer for user’s seeking a quicker and easier way to start their round, intuitive course search showcases logic that leverages home course, favourite, previously played and nearby courses to display a list after just one character is typed, and adjust based on subsequent characters entered.
