Shot Scope Technologies launch performance tracking wearable for golf
Edinburgh, Scotland, January 14, 2016… Shot Scope Technologies has launched a dedicated performance tracking golf wearable using innovative technology which allows the golfer to collect performance data automatically. Golfers can use either the Shot Scope app or online platform (www.shotscope.com) to gain insights into their golf game and improve.
Today, Shot Scope Technologies has launched an innovative automatic performance tracking wearable for the golf market. The new technology allows the golfer to collect performance data without using a phone, manually tagging or pressing buttons.
CEO of Shot Scope, David Hunter said “Shot Scope is the 1st system that allows golfers of all levels to track their game with no interruptions; monitor statistics, identify your trends and use the information to make better decisions on the course. The wristband interacts with unique tags inserted into the grip of every golf club to identify shots, club used and log GPS information.”
Shot Scope automatically collects over 100 performance statistics. Information is uploaded through Bluetooth or USB to the Shot Scope dashboard and is displayed in easy-to-consume graphics. Golfers gain actionable insights which help them to identify strengths and weaknesses in their game. The technology equips golfers with the knowledge to play to their strengths on the course and work on weaknesses off it.
Shot Scope will be launched to the industry on January 27th at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, USA. David Hunter commented “The golf world has been extremely supportive throughout the development of Shot Scope. European Tour golfers, professionals, college golfers, and amateur golfers have provided input into the design and are keen to start using Shot Scope in 2016.” The golf industry has been quick to realize the potential of Shot Scope. Providing golfers with technology that doesn’t impede or slow down the game is key to growth in the sector.
“Shot Scope has the potential to revolutionize the shot tracking sector” commented Hoyt McGarity, CEO of True Spec Golf (the number 1 custom fitting company), “being fully automatic is key and it will be a great tool for the golfer to improve and learn about their game.”
Shot Scope Technologies was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland. From its inception, the one simple aim of the company has been to improve the way in which both amateur and professional golfers collect and analyze statistics.
