Shot Scope V2 Golf Watch Offers GPS Distances and Stats

Published

on

With today’s golfers having access to a plethora of different distance-measuring devices coming in all shapes and sizes, it’s difficult for a product to separate itself from the pack. Despite the success of big-name companies like Bushnell and Garmin, a Scottish company called Shot Scope has been producing quality products and quietly making a name for itself in the golf world.

Its new V2 Watch is unique in a number of ways. Most notably, the watch has three different modes that are tailored to the needs of different golfers: GPS, PRO, and GPS+TRACK. The watch uses the company’s SMART GPS technology to give yardages to the front, middle, and back of the green while accurately recognizing the golfer’s position on more than 40,000 courses. A software update that will be available later in the year will provide distances to hazards.

As essential as they are, many golfers want more information than simple yardages. Shot Scope understands this, offering tour-level performance tracking in both the PRO and the GPS+TRACK modes. Over 100 tour-caliber statistics are collected and analyzed by the watch. The stats are divided to fit into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game, and putting. The data collection happens seamlessly through the company’s ClubSense technology, which allows the wristband to “sense” the small plastic sensors (provided with purchase) that golfers screw into the butt end of their grips.

The V2 Watch is currently available for preorder for $210 and comes with 20 club sensors. It will be available at retail October 1 for $250.

    Haven’t seen a shot scope get this much attention since November of ’63 when Lee Harvey put a couple 6.5 MMs in JFK’s forehead.

      No, it was from behind according to the Warren commission. How does that square up?

GolfWRX Spotted: New PXG Gen4 drivers and 2021 putters

Published

on

Some people like to say “the West Coast is the best coast,” and as far as kicking off the PGA Tour season with events and new equipment, it’s hard to argue.

At the American Express last week won by Si Woo Kim, we got our first in-hand look at the Gen4 drivers from PXG which were spotted only a few weeks ago on the conforming equipment list – GolfWRX Spotted: PXG Gen4 drivers on conforming list

As per our initial reports, the PXG Gen4 driver line looks to include a number of models to cater to varying player types and appears to be using some sort of high strength Aluminum Vapor (AV) carbon composite to save mass from the crown.

Although we don’t have official confirmation of the technology built into the crown, the Aluminium Vapor would be the logical explanation based on the two-tone look and how the material shares the visual of the Mitsubishi Chemical AV Raw golf shafts.

We also spotted some updated putter models including the below Brandon which has newly positioned tungsten weights at the extreme rear to further enhance MOI and forgiveness compared to the current model which only features much smaller weights.

For more pictures and too see what others are saying about the spotted PXG Gen4 drivers and putters, check out the GolfWRX forums: PXG Gen 4 prototype drivers – new putters

Bettinardi Golf signs two-time European Tour winner Sam Horsfield

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today announced the signing of two-time European Tour champion Sam Horsfield.

For 2020, Horsfield will continue using his BBZero putter and will become the first-ever player to have a Bettinardi staff bag on Tour.

The BBZero flat-stick has served Horsfield well, with the Englishman finishing 8th in putts per GIR last season on the European Tour. Speaking on joining Bettinardi’s tour staff, the 24-year-old said

“I want to be the best golfer I can be, and feeling comfortable in my equipment is crucial in achieving this. Bettinardi brings me the confidence in their innovation and attention to detail that I am looking for, especially when it comes to putting and how important feel is.

Being affiliated with them for so long, it’s really special for me to be officially a Tour staffer now.”

Horsfield used the company’s DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel) BBZero Tour Dept. putter for both of his Euro Tour wins in 2020, and will now join a growing tour staff which includes Jason Kokrak, Matt Kuchar, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Fred Couples.

 

The Englishman’s history with Bettinardi goes back to when he was 10-years-old when he contacted Robert Bettinardi while visiting the PGA Show in Orlando where he picked up a Bettinardi putter to start his golf career.

Speaking on making Horsfield the newest addition to its tour staff, founder Robert Bettinardi said

“I’m very excited to have Sam Horsfield join our tour staff. It all comes full circle for us after meeting him and his father when he was 10, to keeping in touch with my son Sam and myself all these years, through college and, now, winning on the European Tour twice on his way to becoming a star. We believe Sam will do big things and win a Major trusting a Bettinardi putter like he has for over a decade.”
