Best Shot Tracker (Game Golf, Arccos, Shot Scope, Garmin, Etc.)

Recommended Posts

I have tried both Game Golf and Arccos. These things often boil down to preferences, and I can only say what worked for me. Game Golf was a "fail" for me, whereas Arccos has worked well for me and I am happy with the system. 

I liked Game's club tags better, but I would too often forget to tap the shot recording device, so my rounds would be incomplete.

I like the Arccos automatic shot detection better. The rare errors are easy to fix with editing. 

I much prefer the feeling of playing with a watch or a phone in the front pocket than having something clipped to my belt like a beeper, which is the exact opposite of how I thought I would feel.

With Game Golf, I also found it annoying to have another device to charge (and to remember to put back in the golf bag after charging).

I don't know what improvements have been made with Game (I was using it in 2014-2015 I believe, and I just started using Arccos), so who knows maybe they've made changes to the system. 

I can't say which provides better stats or analysis. For me, the most significant difference has been that Arccos has been easy to use and to collect a full round's worth of data, whereas with Game, I often came away with big gaps, because I would forget to tag shots. With Arccos, it's a breeze. I just keep the phone in the pocket and it detects the whole round with minimal errors. What errors do occur are very easy to correct with editing.

I've been using V1 Game this season, and have found it really nice. The Apple Watch functionality they added this year really makes it easy to "set and forget", and the swing detection using the builtin watch functionality is smooth. The only negative is that puts and chips have to be manually tracked, as the GPS technology doesn't provide shot detection and shot recording inside a few yards of the green.

    • I doubt it was really intentional, but...    
    • And if there were, as @boogielicious points out, would it be reasonable to expect anybody to be able to play both at a time? Of course not - that idea is absurd.
    • Oh man, I would LOVE for one of those guys to say that under oath. But at the end of the day, not one of those guys in that lawsuit said they were leaving for money.  They were leaving for a "better schedule", to "spend more time with their families", or "to grow the game of golf."  They were also aware that LIV was an international organization, the LIV website literally calls themself an "International Golf Series."  They were aware of the format at the time they joined, they were aware of the schedule.  They were also made very aware of what the penalty would be from the PGA Tour if they joined.  They had all of that information in advance, and made a choice.  Now to come back and say that? Understand you're playing devils advocate, but that argument coming from these professionals should have no legs to stand on in a legal setting.
    • Playing devils advocate here because I can't comprehend what its like to be a millionaire and want to be a zillionaire - but I think the point is there is no competition in LIV just money. Thus still no meaningful choice to them. LIV can pay but can't provide competition, PGA Tour has the competition but doesn't pay that well. Most PGA Tour players are not making a ton of money, especially compared to other US sports.
