Shot Scope Technologies officially closes the pre-sale of V2 after selling out over the Holidays. The company also announces that V2 has been confirmed as Conforming to the Rules of Golf.
The pre-sale of V2 ran from August to November 2017 and gave golfers the opportunity to purchase the product at a reduced rate. Golfers from 32 countries took advantage of this limited-time offer and have since amassed over 8,000 rounds of golf, despite being off-season in most countries.
Shot Scope V2 will be on general sale from the 19th of January 2018 at shotscope.com.
The two-part ruling on the status of V2 looks at each of the device’s three modes individually. Pro mode, which gathers data in the background without showing real-time information, has been ruled as Conforming to the Rules of Golf. Performance data is not available until post-round and therefore V2 can be used in this setting to collect data without being contrary to Rule 14-3. GPS and GPS+Track modes are permissible where the Local Rule has been adopted allowing the use of distance measuring devices.
Updates to the system will further enhance the user experience with a relaunch of the current Performance Dashboard in a release scheduled for April 1st. Optimized for interactive data-driven learning, the new Performance Dashboard focuses on Clubs, Tee Shots, Approaches, Short Game and Putting to provide over 100 Tour-level statistics to facilitate long-term improvement.
In addition, the capabilities of the watch itself, which currently offers distances to the front/middle/back of the green, will be improved with the addition of distances to hazards in March.
Shot Scope will debut the latest product updates at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. The PGA Merchandise show features over 1,100 interactive exhibits and draws in over 40,000 industry leaders from 74 countries. Shot Scope will be exhibiting alongside premier Scottish golf companies on stand 3373, representing the Future of Golf straight from the Home of Golf.
