GAME GOLF makes golf more fun and interactive, bringing the golfer’s data to life with the ability to share socially. GAME GOLF utilizes sensors on each club and a “tag-and-go” wearable device sensor on the player’s belt. Vital performance data is synced to the cloud from the device and is viewable on GAME GOLF’s website (www.gamegolf.com) within a player’s profile or via the GAME GOLF App on a player’s iPhone or iPod touch. From there, a player can view a dynamic interface displaying each shot and round data such as club selection, fairways hit, greens in regulation and distance, in addition to other stats and trends important to the player.
“GAME GOLF has arrived in grand fashion,” said John McGuire, CEO of GAME GOLF. “We are excited to bring this revolutionary product to Apple customers in the U.S. and Canada and look forward to helping them improve their game and compete with their friends and favorite professional golfers.”
