CAD­DIE IN YOUR POCKET

Golf Australia - - PRO SHOP -

The job of a cad­die is to pro­vide their player with all the rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to a shot and then as­sist in mak­ing a de­ci­sion based on that data and the player’s game that best suits the hole.

Un­for­tu­nately to­day cad­dies and their ex­pert guid­ance are al­most ex­clu­sively lim­ited to the world’s pro­fes­sional tours, but through a part­ner­ship with Mi­crosoft and its Azure cloud, Ar­c­cos Golf hopes to pro­vide that cad­die ex­pe­ri­ence to ev­ery golfer.

The cad­die is a pre­mium feature within the Ar­c­cos 360 app. Us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of ev­ery shot hit by the user when us­ing the com­pany’s shot track­ing sys­tem, more than 61 mil­lion shots hit around the world us­ing Ar­c­cos, geo­tagged data points and weather con­di­tions Ar­c­cos Cad­die de­liv­ers a per­son­alised data-driven strat­egy for the golfer to play the hole in front of them.

Users will have to play five rounds be­fore the Ar­c­cos Cad­die is un­locked, so the sys­tem can build enough data about the player’s game. Then at the press of the “Cad­die” but­ton the user will be pre­sented with the op­ti­mal path for the hole, as well as the like­li­hood of find­ing the fair­way and the chances of hit­ting the green on par-3s.
