Arccos Golf Releases Powerful Features Highlighted by Next-Gen Smart Club Distances and Enhanced Putt Data Tracking
STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 28, 2021 – Arccos – the pioneer of big data and artificial intelligence for golf – today announced its major features release for Q4 2021, highlighted by a next-generation Smart Club Distances algorithm, first-of-its-kind weather & location scenarios tool and enhanced putt data tracking.
Developed by Arccos’ leading team of data scientists, architects and engineers, the latest Smart Club Distances machine learning algorithm takes accuracy to a new level by providing a precise estimation of how far a player hits a well-struck shot with each club in their bag. Mishits, abnormally long and recovery shots are now automatically identified and eliminated from the calculations, which help fuel Arccos’ award-winning A.I. caddie club recommendations. Plus, golfers can now filter the total number of shots included by the algorithms at any given time to facilitate analysis of any recent changes in their swing, equipment or other game aspects.
Further extending the value of Smart Club Distances is the weather & location scenarios tool. This graphically intuitive feature allows Arccos members to easily select from a wide range of weather conditions (ex: wind speed, wind direction and temperature variations) and altitudes. It then uses machine learning to assess the impact of these adjustments across the Smart Distance of every club in that player’s bag.
Premiering concurrently are significant enhancements to Arccos functionality on the greens. These include the addition of second and third putt distance tracking for even more accurate putting Stroke Gained analytics, a green grid view toggle and the ability to enable walking path tracking for better post-round identification of pin and putt locations.
Golf’s first Artificial Intelligence platform, Arccos Caddie automatically tracks your shots while delivering in-round insights and post-round Strokes Gained Analytics. The system includes the world’s first A.I.-powered rangefinder, smart club distances and caddie advice for every golf hole on earth.
