Shot Scope, industry-leader in advanced GPS and on-course shot tracking technology, today unveiled Shot Scope Academy – a first-of-its-kind game tracking system, designed specifically for PGA Professionals and golf coaches.
Utilising advanced technology, the Shot Scope Academy is able to establish unlimited connectivity between coaches and golfers to track and analyse performance on the course. It gives coaches the opportunity to connect with their community of players, with access to over 100 game statistics to help create tailored lessons and practice.
The brand-new system allows coaches to track the performance of a golfer, with all the data from a round seamlessly uploaded to the academy platform – providing a space for coaches to view, analyse and instantly send game improvement recommendations or lesson plans.
“Aside from an actual playing lesson, never before in the game of golf have PGA Professionals and coaches had the opportunity to truly connect with golfers and their performance out on the course – until now,” said Gavin Dear, Chief Commercial Officer, Shot Scope.
“Shot Scope Academy offers an unprecedented tether between coach and golfer to track their performance by capturing every shot hit on the course, allowing the coach to identify any common misses or trends in the golfer’s game and focus on the areas needed to take their game to the next level – whether that be swing changes or on course strategy.”
The Shot Scope Academy allows coaches to see first-hand the results of every shot hit on each hole during the round, including the club used, end location of the shot, and the hole score. Without being there in person, coaches can structure lesson plans based on direct performance statistics, taking out any discrepancies from player memory.
With up to 40% margin, no MOQ and free shipping, stocking Shot Scope could add extra value to coaches in more than the traditional sense. With revenue prospects, there is a great opportunity to explore how the product line-up could enhance retail offering, in addition to the coaching capabilities.
Shot Scope performance tracking products start from as little as £149.99 (H4 Handheld) and exclude any type of subscription fee. Purchases can be made by the golfer directly at www.shotscope.com, via a recommend retailer or through their golf coach. Golfers and their coach will receive free and unlimited access to the Shot Scope Academy dashboard.
