Give Dad the Gift of Lower Scores with Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors and Smart Grips
Rounding into late spring and toward Father’s Day, dads are in a happy place. More than 95% of golf courses throughout the U.S. are open according to the National Golf Foundation, as are 85% of off-course retail stores. Globally, golf has returned in the majority of countries, with golf retail also beginning to reopen throughout Europe.
And if things go according to plan with the PGA TOUR, dad can watch the RBC Heritage at Sea Pines Resort and famed Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C.
While the PGA TOUR and golf clubs throughout the U.S. are trying to figure out how to bring caddies safely back to the game, you can get dad his very own A.I. caddie this Father’s Day with Arccos.
After all, every golfer wants lower scores, and only Arccos uses players’ on-course data to help them chart a path for rapid game improvement. What’s more, the award-winning Arccos Caddie app will track all of Dad’s shots automatically, give him the world’s first A.I. powered rangefinder and game insights so he can practice smarter and make better decisions on the course to improve faster.
As a special gift for Father’s Day, we’re offering Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors, an Arccos Performance Tech hat and Arccos Performance Tech towel for €245.97 (a €20 savings).
We trust dad can figure out how to use the hat and towel. But here’s a brief gift guide to getting dad setup and swinging with Arccos Caddie Products and the Arccos Caddie App.
Arccos Caddie Products
Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors are the founding element of the Arccos ecosystem.
They’re a great option for dads who change club sets frequently, just had their clubs re-gripped or if you simply don’t know what type of grips dad prefers.
The set comes with 14 Smart Sensors (one for each club, including the putter) that twist into the ends of existing grips. The exception – and it’s a good one – is for players who a SuperStroke counterbalance grip on their putter, we offer a special sensor accessory.
Clubs are paired via the phone’s microphone with the Arccos Caddie App, a process that takes less than five minutes. Just make sure dad has his putter paired, as he can’t start his round on Arccos without it. If he gets a new club – a driver for example – sensors are easily unpaired and re-paired.
If dad is already an Arccos member using Smart Sensors, Father’s Day is the ideal time to upgrade him to Arccos Caddie Smart Grips. Or, if you think he’ll prefer more of an integrated and seamless look and feel, Smart Grips are a great option.
How it works: sensors are embedded into the ends of the grips and connect any set of clubs to Across Caddie (just like the Smart Sensors).
When it comes to grips, Golf Pride is the leader among PGA TOUR players, while Lamkin is also extremely popular with professionals and amateurs alike. Arccos offers both, including the Golf Pride MCC Plus4 and Lamkin Crossline 360 and UTx.
When it comes to grip size, here’s an easy way to figure out which dad needs: if his golf glove is an extra-large, opt for the midsize. If it is medium or large, go for the standard.
Smart Sensors and Grips come with the first year’s subscription to the Arccos Caddie App, a $99.99 value. And about the App …
The Arccos Caddie App
Smart Sensors and Smart Grips both connect to Arccos Caddie, the app-based platform that makes it all possible. The sheer amount of info and data it contains, and the artificial intelligence it incorporates, are what avid golfers relish.
Equal parts caddie, coach, and GPS rangefinder, the Arccos Caddie app is dad’s shortest path to rapid game improvement. In fact, Arccos players on average improve by 4.2 strokes in the first year, some in as few as 5 rounds.
The Arccos Caddie App houses detailed GPS-based maps of more than 40,000 courses. It checks the box of providing pinpoint accurate distances for every shot on just about every hole in the world.
Like an expert statistician, it also records every shot made with every club in the bag. The sensors detect impact and transmit data to dad’s smartphone (and Apple Watch).
But where Arccos Caddie really separates itself is by being just that – being dad’s virtual caddie. After just five 18-hole rounds, it makes club selection suggestions by leveraging on-course performance data from previous shot distances and directions.
The Arccos Caddie Rangefinder (seamlessly incorporated in the App) layers wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, slope and altitude with point to point yardage, in real-time, to provide Arccos players with the most accurate shot distances in the industry.
