At the same time you will be able to share your successes across social media and compare your performance against your friends and other Shot Scope users.

The free software update, which is available to all users, will be released in two stages – firstly, as of early September, golfers will be able to access the Medals feature, followed by the Leaderboards functionality which will be added in mid-October.

This free update once again demonstrates Shot Scope’s desire to continue providing added value to its users through continued updates to the band’s advanced software.

David Hunter, Shot Scope CEO, said: “We have a great interaction with our users and the new Medals and Leaderboards functionality will add a new dimension to the Shot Scope experience.

"This update highlights the continual development of our product and how much we value our user experience. Shot Scope shows that a GPS watch can do a lot more than just provide distances and really is the future of GPS in golf"

This new feature gives users the opportunity to unlock over 500 Medals in a variety of different categories - ranging from breaking 80 for the first time, making 3 birdies in a row, hitting a new long-drive or playing a course which has held a Major.
