Arccos Caddie Golf Stats 2020 Year in Review

2020 Arccos Highlights Golf Stats

What a year. Safe to say that none of us could have expected the events of 2020 to unfold the way they did. The silver lining for golf, is that the socially-distanced sport has had an injection of new blood, renewed interest, and even more participation than in previous years. The numbers are pretty amazing and we hope the memories created on the course were even better.

In fact, it was quite a year for Arccos with our most shots recorded, number of rounds played and new members joining. We introduced the world’s first A.I. Rangefinder, revolutionary Strokes Gained Analytics and of course our first wearable, the much anticipated, Arccos Caddie Link.

Arccos Year in Review 2020 - Stats Breakdown

Leveraging data to help you make smarter decisions to improve your game, can inspire better routines and practices. We know when you play better, you have more fun. We’ve added thousands of new members to the Arccos community this year, and it’s been even more exciting to see them drop strokes off their game. Umm... in case you missed the awesome number above, on average new members dropped 5 strokes in their first year! 🤯 Don’t think so fast that it was a bunch of 36 handicappers with strokes to spare either, 20+ handicappers only account for roughly 30% of new members.
