Improve your Game with the Ultimate in Golfing Gadgets

April 3, 2014

After a hole-in-one on the crowd sourcing course with a publicly funded prize in excess of $280,000, Game Golf, the latest in a line of high-tech golfing aids , is ready to enter into its very own world tour. The brainchild of Game Golf CEO John McGuire is now available to order online and has amateurs and professionals alike eagerly anticipating its arrival on their doorstep. What's more, with endorsements from the likes of Greame McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk alongside the PGA of America and The Golf Channel, this particular smart golf system looks set to become ubiquitous throughout golf courses around the world.

Game Golf allows users to record each and every shot they take on any particular course in the world and currently supports some 30,000 courses. A small sensor is clipped to your belt which, when linked to your set of clubs, allows information to flow freely between the two through near-field technology. The club sensor is hidden away discreetly within your grip which means that it won't impact your game and each sensor is unique to each club.

When you have finished your round, the wearable sensor can be connected to your computer allowing you to transfer all of your accumulated data from your game. This data is then combined with the course map and your GPS position, allowing you to track your shot distance and position for each particular club. This information can be displayed on both computers and mobile devices giving you instant access to your virtual game data .

Social Sport

However, the real beauty of this new tracking system is the ability to share data through social media , giving users the opportunity to play competitive rounds in different locations. This social element will create a new way for friends to push themselves competitively and, as PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua intimated; "It represents where sports are headed at the participatory level, that convergence of playing a game in technology and, in our opinion, this really nailed it in the golf space."

The system is set to benefit both pros and amateurs and is also designed as a tool for coaching professionals to provide students with detailed feedback of their game. Both the Golf Channel and McDowell believe that the system will become part of the evolution of the modern game, helping it to grow whilst also giving players a social incentive to improve and compete.

Retailing at $249, Game Golf will also be available to buy in Apple Stores across the US, giving you the opportunity to start recording those first shots as the weather improves. Of course, you'll need to ensure you have a fresh set of golf shoes and and some comfortable trousers to tee off in style and comfort. Why not take a look at Zalando's golf shop for a comprehensive range of great golfing gear and get your 2014 season off to a great start.
