Five of the best on sale now
Tour pros have access to hundreds of stats to monitor their performance, and in the last couple of years the tech has filtered into the amateur game. You’ve got to be pretty committed to buy it, but new ways of tracking your game stats are appearing all the time.
Arccos 360 £249 www.arccosgolf.com
Arccos partners with Microsoft to offer a Caddie feature. It takes into account shots you’ve hit before and gives you a strategy for the shot, hole or course you’re playing.
Shot Scope £145 www.shotscope.com
If you’ve avoided trackers because shots need to be tagged or because the putting stats are rubbish, Shot Scope solves both issues. You simply tag the pin at the end of each hole and everything else is automatic.
Skycaddie Linx GT £299.95 www.skygolf.com
This includes a Linx watch so you have yardages on your wrist, too. Tags in the grips of your clubs record each shot by touching the grip on the watch which allows for detailed post-round analysis.
Mobitee and Piq £199 www.mobitee.com
GPS yardages, shot tracking as well as tempo, speed and swing path, the Mobitee offers tons of info. A sensor attaches to the back of your glove, tags are inserted into your club grips and you get live graphics plotted on GPS hole images.
Game Golf Live £169 www.gamegolf.com
Game Golf Live not only lets you do all the same shot tracking as the original and view your data live it lets you invite friends to join a live leaderboard, which can really liven up a Saturday morning knock about!
