Course Hub Connects Shot Scope’s Over 50,000 Golfers Virtually to Share Game Information, View and Store Stats, Compete Against Other Players and Access Golf Course Information From Around The World
Edinburgh, Scotland … Shot Scope (www.shotscope.com), a leading international manufacturer of GPS-based golf management systems, and maker of the V3 – golf’s first Smart Watch featuring Artificial Intelligence – has unveiled Course Hub, a free social community within the Shot Scope app where the brand’s more than 50,000 golfing customers can come together virtually to share game information, view and store stats, compete against other golfers and access golf course information from around the world.
Fueling the Course Hub, Shot Scope captures over 1 million golf shots around the world every 10 days from customer base of smart watch users, and to date has over 65 million shots recorded by players using drivers, irons, wedges and putters. Through Course Hub, a golfer can now uncover valuable data on how to play any course, while becoming part of an engaging golf community.
Thanks to the unmatched game tracking technology featured in both the V3 and V2 GPS Smart Watches, Shot Scope data has shown that golfers improve their scoring by 2.7 shots over the first 30 rounds of use. With the addition of this new social community, golfers will have access to even more data from thousands of other users that can help improve their game.
The Shot Scope Course Hub is unlike any other social community in golf, as users can simply search for a golf club and instantly gain access to a wealth of data, such as gross and net course records, longest drives, hole-by-hole statistics, birdies and much more. This will allow golfers who are going to play at a specific course for the first time to view how other users have played it before and pick up useful course management tips.
Today, all data captured on Shot Scope V3 and V2 GPS watches is automatically synced to Course Hub after golfers opt to share their round data. This feature helps to build a massive database of information on how best to play golf courses, while also allowing users to immediately view their round data and compare their statistics with other golfers.
In addition, all 18 holes represent an opportunity for golfers to participate in friendly competitions with Course Hub. In fact, every par 5 becomes a long drive competition with the implementation of driving records, while a Top-10 leaderboard is available on each course page.
“The new Course Hub is ground-breaking for Shot Scope, as it serves as a central location to showcase all of our worldwide golfer data,” said Shot Scope CEO, David Hunter. “We are so excited to be launching our own social community that can bring tens of thousands of golfers together and help them to improve their game.”
Hunter adds, “Our smart watch intelligence is unlike any in golf, for its proven to help golfers play better, while providing Shot Scope with a wealth of information that helps change the way our customers approach their round and manage their game. Now, through Course Hub, the amount of data that our users can access makes this app incredibly valuable, as golfers now have the opportunity to analyze how others have played a course. This is a tremendous benefit for any player.”
Golfers can access the Course Hub through the Shot Scope app for free. Course Hub is housed under the ‘compete’ section of the app, alongside Leaderboards and Medals. The new Shot Scope V3 Smart Golf Watch, which is available now, comes with 16 pre-labeled Club ID tags and five stylish watch strap options, including black, blue, red, gray and purple. Suggested retail price for the Shot Scope V3 is $219 and can be purchased at Dicks Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy, PGA Superstores, TGW.com, golf specialty stores or online at www.shotscope.com.
