12 July 2019
Edinburgh, UK – 12th July 2019 – Shot Scope is delighted to announce details of its brand-new free online feature, Course Hub, which will be released for Shot Scope V2 users on Friday 12th July.
This new technology will bring golfers together by creating a social community that allows them to virtually join an unlimited number of golf clubs, view course stats, and compete in various competitions against other Shot Scope V2 users.
Shot Scope currently captures over 1 million golf shots around the world every 10 days and, on average, Shot Scope V2 users improve their scoring by 2.7 shots over the first 30 rounds of use. With the addition of this new, completely free online tool, golfers will have access to even more information from thousands of other users that can help them improve their game.
The Course Hub is unlike any other social community in the game of golf. Users can simply search for a golf club and instantly gain access to rafts of data, such as: gross and net course records, longest drives, hole-by-hole statistics, most birdies and much more.
This will allow golfers who are going to play at a specific course for the first time to view how other users have managed their way around it and pick up useful course management tips.
All data captured on users’ Shot Scope V2 GPS watches will be automatically synced to the Course Hub after they opt to share their round data. This feature will build a huge database of information on how best to play golf courses, while also allowing users to immediately view their round data and compare their statistics with other golfers.
All 18 holes represent an opportunity to compete with Course Hub. Every par 5 will become a Long Drive competition with the implementation of ‘Driving Records’, and a Top-10 leaderboard will be available on each course page. If a course has no par 5s, the last three par 4s will act as the Long Drive holes so that every course can benefit from this feature.
Accessing the Course Hub couldn’t be any easier. From Friday 12th July, Shot Scope V2 owners will simply login to the Shot Scope website where they can gain access to the new social community completely free of charge.
“The new Course Hub feature is ground-breaking for Shot Scope. We are all so excited to be launching our own social community that can bring golfers together and hopefully help lots of them to improve their game,” commented Shot Scope CEO, David Hunter.
“The amount of data that our users are going to be able to access through Course Hub will make this feature incredibly valuable. The ability to view how other golfers have played a course before you do, is something that every player can benefit from.”
To celebrate the release of this new and exciting feature, Shot Scope are pleased to announce a 10-day Major Offer on the Shot Scope V2 watch.
The Shot Scope V2 will be available at the sale price of $159/$199 CAD. This Major Offer will run between 12th and 22nd of July, finishing after the conclusion of the 2019 Open Championship. Customers will be able to get their industry-leading GPS shot tracking watch from all US and Canadian Shot Scope retailers, as well as from shotscope.com.
