The new Game Golf Live shot tracking system now displays shot data on the the course in real time to your smartphone and offers tips on how to improve your weaknesses
Game Golf Live is the industry’s first wearable, real-time shot tracker for both iOS and Android smartphone platforms.
The launch of Game Golf Live follows the original Game Golf product, which was the first wearable device that tracked and captured real performance data and is permitted Under the Rules of Golf by the R&A and USGA.

Game Golf Live will function through the same user interface as the original Game Golf, whereby a small, lightweight device is worn on the player’s waist and individual, feather-light sensor tags are attached to the top of the grip on each club to capture player data.
But in the upgraded system, Game Golf Live records performance data in real-time, with the data from every shot instantly displayed on your iOS or Android phone. Other new features include Strokes Gained data for information off the tee, on approach shots, during the short game and for putting. This will give golfers a detailed way to analyse their game and to develop data-driven practice sessions.
As compared to the traditional Strokes Gained Analysis, Game Golf has added a new twist by providing a detailed TIPS section to interpret the data and help pinpoint improvement opportunities. When viewed on the web, Game Golf Live Strokes Gained compares the player’s recent rounds to a scratch players rounds to ultimately see how many strokes are lost driving, in fairway play, chipping or putting.
Game Golf Live’s mapping system has also been upgraded to feature Google Maps, Apple Maps and BING Maps and includes a powerful course rangefinder.
“The introduction of our Classic product was a game-changing moment for the industry and Game Golf Live is set to raise the bar yet again,” Game Golf CEO John McGuire told GM. “Our mission has always been to increase the playing enjoyment of all golfers by helping them to understand more about their game. We’re excited to see how Game Golf Live’s real-time data collection will help users to do this and take their game to the next level.”
Game Golf Live is available at a number of retailers in the UK including American Golf at an RRP of £249.99. Existing Game Golf users have been offered the opportunity to upgrade to Game Golf Live for just £99.99 until November 11th, 2015.
