Shot Scope launches new social hub 

6.15am 11th July 2019 - New Products - This story was updated on Thursday, July 11th, 2019

Shot Scope has announced the launch a brand-new free online feature, Course Hub, which will be released for Shot Scope V2 users on Friday July 12.

This new technology will bring golfers together by creating a social community that allows them to virtually join an unlimited number of golf clubs, view course stats, and compete in various competitions against other Shot Scope V2 users.

Shot Scope currently captures over 1 million shots around the world every 10 days and, on average, Shot Scope V2 users improve their scoring by 2.7 shots over the first 30 rounds of use. With the addition of this new, completely free online tool, golfers will have access to even more information from thousands of other users that can help them improve their game.

The Course Hub allows users to search for a golf club and instantly gain access to rafts of data, such as gross and net course records, longest drives, hole-by-hole statistics, most birdies and much more. This will allow players who are going to play at a specific course for the first time to view how other users have managed their way around it and pick up useful course management tips.

All data captured on users’ Shot Scope V2 GPS watches will be automatically synced to the Course Hub after they opt to share their round data. This feature will build a huge database of information on how best to play golf courses, while also allowing users to immediately view their round data and compare their statistics with other golfers.

All 18 holes represent an opportunity to compete with Course Hub. Every par-five hole will become a Long Drive competition with the implementation of ‘Driving Records’, and a top-10 leaderboard will be available on each course page. If a course has no par fives, the last three par fours will act as the Long Drive holes, so that every course can benefit from this feature.

To sign up, Shot Scope V2 owners can login to the Shot Scope website from July 12, where they can gain access to the new social community completely free of charge.

Shot Scope CEO David Hunter said: “The new Course Hub feature is ground-breaking for Shot Scope. We are all so excited to be launching our own social community that can bring golfers together and hopefully help lots of them to improve their game. The amount of data that our users are going to be able to access through Course Hub will make this feature incredibly valuable. The ability to view how other golfers have played a course before you do, is something that every player can benefit from.”

To mark the release of this new feature, Shot Scope has launched a 10-day discount on the cost of its Shot Scope V2 watch. Between July 12-22, it will be on offer at the reduced price of £139.99 (€169.99), representing a saving 0f £30 (€30) of the RRP. Customers will be able to buy the V2 watch from all UK, EU and IRE retailers, as well as directly from shotscope.com.
