Having been lucky enough to be invited to the UK launch at Woburn Golf Club this week I can honestly say I walked off the golf course like a small child on Christmas Day! This system has made me want to play golf again. I am not a techie in any way shape or form and gladly you don’t need to be to use this system. It’s simple to set up, takes only a matter of minutes and then you are good to go. The device links to your smart phone which must be in your front pocket during play with the speaker facing upwards. From there it’s plain sailing. The system is so intelligent it can detect and separate a practice swing from an actual swing. When you have hit your shot it records the info and then will plot to your next shot. By hitting the next shot it is able to track the previous distance and so on. Clever? Beyond belief. It’s also intelligent and the more golf you play the more it tracks removing the wider parameters of your golf shots thus resulting in accurate distance advice. The data this system collates is immense and it really does help you analyse every part of the game. How many greens hit, where were they missed, actual distances, number of up and downs, fairways hit to name a few. The system is designed to help any golfer of any level see just what part of their game is letting them down which of course will result in more constructive practice. The data collated in the US so far has shown an average of over 3 shots reduction in handicap within a 12 month period. There is also a social aspect to this as you are able to track any golfing friends using the device and see their rounds and stats. There is much more to come in the spring with the introduction of a virtual caddie feature. The system absorbs your data and gets more and more intelligent the more it is used. By doing this you will be able to see what tactic on any hole in the world would result in your best possible results based on your data - Wow (I cannot wait for this feature due in May 2017)
I don’t write too much about products but boy this has got me so keen again about my game I just had to shout out about it - John Lines, Managing Director at Golfsupport.com
