Everyone can agree that golf hasn’t changed that much over the decades. However, thanks to technology, the way we improve our game has completely transformed. Of course, if you want to become a pro you will still need to practice (and then practice some more), but with some useful gadgets you will be able to improve your swing in half the time. You won’t become Tiger Woods overnight, but you will learn how to stay out of the bunkers. So, if you are interested in taking that first step towards improvement, here are several tech tools that will make that possible.
We all know that cyclists, runners, and swimmers use Garmin to improve their game, but now this technology is available to golfers as well. X40 golf watch combines standard features such as step counting and heart rate monitoring with metrics for 40,000 courses across the world. When you turn on the ‘green view’ option, you will be able to see the layout of the green or a particular hole. This GPS will calculate precise distances to the front, middle, and back of the greens, and it will measure your shot distance so you can analyze your game afterward. Of course, this is not the only GPS gadget ideal for golfers. Check out the Hombre Golf club and find reviews of best golf GPS devices as well as quality and performance rates.
