Edinburgh, UK – Shot Scope (www.shotscope.com), a leading international manufacturer of GPS-based distance tracking and game performance systems, continues to push technological boundaries with the introduction of a new course and hole analysis tool for golfers. The new feature provides golfers with course-specific statistics along with a comprehensive map of how they typically perform at any given course. The new innovation will be most beneficial for a golfer’s home course, where they traditionally track multiple rounds that can be broken down into useful data.
The new game analysis feature is available as a FREE download to all Shot Scope customers who are currently using a product with shot tracking technology, including the award-winning V3 Smart Watch, the PRO LX+ — golf’s first laser rangefinder to feature GPS-powered distances and artificial intelligence for personalized performance tracking – and the new H4 game tracker. It is accessible on Shot Scope’s online dashboard and through the mobile app.
In addition to overall course analysis, the Shot Scope team has further advanced their performance data available through more specific, individual hole statistics. When looking at this data, it will give golfers a defined game plan for their home club, based on prior rounds at that course.
Among the key information available through the new feature include up-and-down statistics from different areas, average score with different clubs off the tee, and heat maps of typical activity on each hole, that will combine to help golfers shoot lower scores. Overall up-and-down statistics are displayed in a clear graph, highlighting the percentage from each miss zone – showcasing where a golfer traditionally makes the highest number of up-and-downs from. This interactive and visual display of data allows golfers to easily navigate the intricacies of their game, in what can otherwise be a confusing process.
“I am really proud of the team here at Shot Scope, who continually show the determination to provide our users with the best possible experience,” comments Gavin Dear, CCO of Shot Scope. “It was our vision that golfers would be able to use these features to help them play their home course to the best of their ability and use the data provided to help with strategizing out on the course.”
One statistic in the new feature that offers a unique insight is the individual strokes gained ranking per hole. By compiling all rounds a golfer has played at a certain course, the Shot Scope software is able to compute a strokes gained ranking for each hole – which can then be compared to the course hole ranking. This also enables golfers to benchmark against players with similar handicaps on the same course, as well as comparing their performance against other golfers at their club. When combined, the course and hole analysis features provide key awareness into how golfers can map their way round the course in a more efficient manner – comparable to a personal stroke saver, unique to each players’ game. The detail provided is tour standard, with golfers having the ability to gain a deeper understanding of all facets within their game.
Adds Dear, “Not only is this informative to the user, but also to coaches who can get a more detailed, statistically driven, understanding of how their clients are performing out on the course. The information can be used to structure and guide lessons, as well as helping golfers plan out their course strategy before an event.”
The new feature comes on the heels of Shot Scope introducing the innovative PRO LX+ device. A first-of-its-kind rangefinder, the PRO LX+ system includes three innovative devices which are sold as one unit, the PRO LX+, featuring GPS-powered distances and performance tracking, or individually as the PRO LX Rangefinder and H4 Game Tracker. Today, with research showing that modern golfers rely on multiple GPS devices, players of all levels now have one device – PRO LX+ – that provides all of the on-course technology they need in one system.
“Shot Scope is thrilled to unveil this game-changing device to the golf industry, as we introduce GPS distance and performance tracking technology to laser rangefinder users for the first time ever,” adds Dear “Our V3 Smart Watch was a tremendous success when launched in 2020, and now we are bringing that same artificial intelligence to rangefinders and giving golfers a multi-product system that is offered at a price point for every budget.”
Dear adds, “For rangefinder users, Shot Scope now offers real-time game tracking data like never before, which is currently used by tens of thousands of golfers worldwide recording over 160 million shots. In fact, our data shows that amateur golfers improve by four strokes thanks to the unique fusion of accurate distance information and automatic performance tracking technology from Shot Scope devices.”
