If you're looking to improve your game and lower your scores, the world-first Golfshot Auto Strokes Gained (ASG) feature is for you.

While other strokes gained systems require the purchase of additional devices or the time of manually entering your data, Golfshot has brought strokes gained to the masses and made it simple, where all you need is your Apple Watch.

So who exactly is strokes gained for? It's for everyone. The game-changing feature allows golfers of all abilities to see where they're losing and making up shots, allowing you to focus on your areas of improvement to help bring down your scores.

It's what the PGA Tour pros use to truly understand their games, but that doesn't mean it only works for elite players. The premise is exactly the same as how the world's best use it, in order to figure out where their strengths and weaknesses lie.

Golfshot also offers up the innovate Swing ID feature, and combined with Auto Shot Tracking and Auto Strokes Gained, the company is re-inventing the way performance golf data is collected on-course through automation.

Golfshot's Auto Strokes Gained functionality is fully automated, thanks to it working in harmony with the Auto Shot Tracking feature. It completely eradicates the need for manual note-taking, so no more pen and paper notes or laborious spreadsheets.

Not only does it save you strokes but it saves you time, too!

Game Enhancement for Players

Performance analysis is ready instantly upon your round's conclusion where you can review the entirety of your game.

Is your driving letting you down? Are you over reliant on your putting? The Strokes Gained data will show you every aspect of how you compile your rounds, meaning that you know exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie. It's a true pathway to improvement.

Practice Enhancement for Players

It's great knowing what you're good at, but the Auto Strokes Gained feature is really designed to tell you what parts of your game need to improve the most.

You'll get a + or - score for Strokes Gained for a variety of different areas, from driving to tee to green, short game and putting so it's easy to see how each part of your game is stacking up and where your biggest opportunities lie.

This then allows you to head to the driving range or practice green with purpose, knowing you're tailoring your training sessions and dedicating your time and effort to addressing those weaknesses.

Accessibility for All

PGA Tour players use Strokes Gained data but that doesn't mean you shouldn't. Strokes Gained is for every calibre of golfer, and it comes in so handy for amateur handicap players who are looking at getting their index down, improving their golf and winning competitions.

So if you're serious about shooting lower scores, it's time to give the Auto Strokes Gained feature a try.

Note: Auto Shot Tracking requires Apple Watch Series 3 or newer, running watchOS 7.0 or greater.
