SHOT SCOPE ANNOUNCES FATHER’S DAY GIFT OFFER FOR U.S. OPEN WEEK

A huge thanks goes out to Al Abrams of golf marketing firm Abrams Golf Solutions. With the help of Mr. Abrams I’ve had the opportunity to test and review the ShotScope V2 multi-function golf watch.

The testing of this product has been amazing thus far and quite honestly I’ve been extremely impressed. It’s a product that is filled with a lot of bang for the “golfer buck”. Performance tracking of each club with a wide variety of detailed stats to help golfers improve their game. It’s wearable technology that needs absolutely no tagging prior to golf shots which definitely adds to the high praise that I’ve given it thus far.

Golfers have long sought a device that combined GPS yardages and fully automatic performance tracking.  Shot Scope’s in-house engineers have developed a product that meets the needs of the modern golfer while retaining the company’s trademark automatic club recognition technology and detailed performance statistics. The latest update from Shot Scope enhances the on-course experience provided to users by showing front, middle and back distances to water/sand hazards.

The V2 has three modes to suit the golfer’s playing requirements: GPS; PRO; and GPS+TRACK. Each mode has been designed for ultimate flexibility. In both GPS and GPS+TRACK modes, the LCD screen displays distances to the front, middle and back of the green from the golfer’s real-time position using SMART GPS.

Performance Tracking is activated in both PRO and GPS+TRACK modes. The watch works in the background to collect over 100 Tour-level statistics, broken down into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game and putting. Performance statistics of this caliber have previously only been available to Tour players. No manual input or phone use is required.

With the new Miura Golf Tour Wedge the brand introduces the first design to utilize a CNC-milled club face and grooves.

Datrek® Go Lite Hybrid Stand Bag Wins Best Hybrid Golf Bag by Golf Digest

One of the booths that I visited very late at this years PGA Merchandise Show was that of Dynamic Brands. The conglomerate that brings the likes of Bag Boy, De Vant, Burton, IGotcha and Datrek under one umbrella.

While at their booth several products caught my eye however none caught my eye more than the Datrek Go Lite Hybrid Golf Bag. This golf bag caught my eye for a few reasons. First there were the colours that drew me to the bag display. Once seeing them I noticed right away that the Go Lite Hybrid golf bag had 14 slots with full length dividers and then there was the weight when I picked it up. It certainly lives up to its billing as being lightweight. In fact, the golf bag weighs a mere 5.2 lbs when empty. Impressive for a stand bag with the full length dividers.

The Datrek Go Lite Hybrid Stand Bag won an award as presented by Golf Digest. Golf Digest gave the “Editor’s Choice Award” for “Best Hybrid Golf Bag”. I would love the opportunity if Datrek gave me an opportunity to test one of these bags to allow me to form my own opinion. Please see the press release below.
