Since it was founded less than 10 years ago the Edinburgh, Scotland company Shot Scope has been a leader in shot tracking and GPS applications and now has a new feature for its mobile app called My Strategy.
My Strategy allows players prior to the round to plot out the best way to play each hole which makes it great for traveling golfers or any time the user plays a new course. The app uses data from the most recent 30 shots with every wood and iron and then suggests the best way tee to green for every hole.
Available for Android or iOS, the Shot Scope app or web dashboard data syncs data from Shot Scopes GPS rangefinders, Smart Watches and tracking tags to show which club is best off the tee, aiming points and lines to avoid rough and hazards. The effect is to use a player’s own shot tendencies and typical distances to give the most effective course management along with a cone of dispersion, dispersion tendency plus wind and elevation adjustments for each shot.
“Any golfer can now go online and look at a course and hole layout, but with the MyStrategy feature Shot Scope golfers can actually match their performance stats with each hole and truly build a game plan ahead of a round,” said David Hunter, CEO, Shot Scope. “This insight is invaluable for competitive tournament players, or golfers playing a new course for the first time.”
Hunter adds, “MyStrategy, as a feature is available across all of our Shot Scope game tracking products, allows golfers to play their best and improve their score on any course, anywhere.”
