The Canadian Press. “If they missed [a shot], they can see why. If it was too left, if it was too long, it was too short, [the] the arc was too flat, whatever.”

It tracks all your shots, your marks, your arc, your shot accuracy from left to right. So I like Noah and I like the comments he gives. It gives you the day, it gives you the week, it gives you the month, it gives you the year, so it’s pretty cool to see.
