Arccos has targeted a new software feature to golfers looking to pinpoint where gains can be made in their putting performances and practice methods.
Available in both individual round summaries and overall player insights within the Arccos Caddie app, Enhanced Putting Stats has been designed to automatically track the Strokes Gained value for each putt at given lengths.
Putting data is also broken down into Make percent and 3 Putt percent at each of the following distances: 0-2 feet, 3-5 feet, 6-9 feet, 10-14 feet, 15-24 feet, 25-39 feet and over 40 feet.
Capturing data across more granular lengths ensures Arccos members can identify what aspect of putting is gaining or costing them valuable shots versus a selected target handicap.
Based on the insights provided by Arccos, practice drills can then be modified to reach specific handicap goals to help lower scoring and reduce the percentage of three putts.
“We all know how important putting is to golfers, with around a third of all shots played on the green in an average round,” said Dave LeDonne, Arccos vice president of product.
“Having introduced the multiple putt tracking feature last year, we’ve now taken it further to provide even more specific insights for Arccos members to help them improve their putting through smarter practice on the putting green or at home,” he added.
With the new software, user-friendly graphs also illustrate a player’s performance broken down across three key parameters – Strokes gained by putting distance, Make percentage by putting distance and 3 Putt % by putting distance.
Golfers can then analyze this data themselves or with a coach to determine the most effective practice drills to introduce.
The latest software update follows the more recent introduction of the Strokes Gained by Club feature earlier this year.
Designed for use at all skill levels, the launch of the system offered golfers the opportunity to assess equipment performance versus a target handicap. The result is a precise view for users of which clubs are contributing to better scoring and those that are holding them back.
Golfers can record putts using the all-new P3 Putter Sensor, released in March, that is more than 40 per cent smaller and 20 per cent lighter than its predecessor.
It was created specifically with pistol grips in mind and can be purchased as a single unit or with the latest Smart Sensors (Gen 3+).
Using an Artificial Intelligence platform, Arccos automatically tracks shots while delivering comprehensive in-round insights.
The system is highlighted by an A.I.-powered rangefinder, smart club distances and caddie advice for every golf hole on earth.
The Arccos Caddie system and the Arccos Caddie Link wearable are permitted under the Rules of Golf (USGA Decision Numbers 2018-0414 and 2020-0305).
