Another cool thing about Arccos is its ability to display how you've played each hole over time. Definitely helpful if you tend to play the same course regularly. Here is a snapshot of the number one handicap hole on the course.

Capture-GVRhole6.JPG

I started evaluating each hole to see where I struggle the most on the course. Ironically, two of the easier holes on the course I struggle with the most for some reason. I would have never thought that without being able to see the data.

The information Arccos can give you based off of the data is quite impressive. I should consider adjusting pin locations after each hole to get more accurate putting information.

I'm going to Cobra to get fit on Saturday and can't wait!  Are there any questions you guys would like answered?  Anything specific you want me to hit and review?

Any of the Single Length stuff including the driving irons.

Still really interested in this, but don't think I'd ever try it unless I got the opportunity to be custom fit for all my iron/wedges.

I'm a huge driving iron fan so that is definitely on the todo list.  I'm not sure how I feel about one length but will give it a shot for sure.

... ends up with the One Length driving iron!

Love it, so jelly you guys got to do this stuff.  Keep us updated, sounds like such an awesome experience.

Right.  I was pretty skeptical of the one length and actually found out a buddy of mine has been using them for a while.  I was surprised how smooth it felt and easy to hit it was.  While the rest of the clubs didn't work out for me but I was happy to put the utility in my bag.

So is the 5i the standard 7-8i length?  or is it the same length as your longest iron in your bag?

Im having trouble getting to that screen.... I can see my overall average scorecard for a course, but cannot figure out the breakdown of stats for individual holes like you did... is there a button some where?

interesting points. you're a good player (relative to most people in golf and certainly compared to me haha), I know the better players and ball changes can be an issue. You think that would be hard for you if needed?

I forgot to add some details from my day.  One of my favorite parts of the day was when Brandon let me hit some clubs created for tour players.  I was able to hit some of the early prototype one length irons made for Bryson and also hit a 4 wood made for Rickie Fowler.  The 4 wood was the D+ with Project X T1100 shaft in it.  The head had 27grams of hotmelt and was cut super short, maybe 2 inches shorter than a normal 4 wood.  Here are some more pictures from that day.

Solid write ups so far guys. Seems like it was well worth the trip to Cali for those that were able to make it.

Today is the day for me, I'll post the results tonight and get started on the write up.

Does anyone else find this information fascinating? 10 rounds of golf to yield these results.

I use my driver 79% of the time off the tee.
I use my 62* wedge 5 times per round.
I hit 47% of fairways with my driver (serious weakness)
I hit 59% of fairways with my 4W (avg 230y)
I hit the green almost 85% with my wedges
I hit the green less than 30% with my 5 & 6 iron
I hit the green the same percentage with my 3H and my 7i (granted fewer attempts with the 3H)
As you might expect the iron with the tightest dispersion is my 62*
Tied for 2nd in dispersion are my Pw and 3H
My 5,6 and 7 irons are almost the same distance (new Cobra F8 irons will cure that)
