Shot Scope already offer some of the best GPS devices and rangefinders, but their latest feature, aerial maps, could be a game changer for golfers.
Playing a course for the first time can be a real challenge, especially if it features blind holes, but for Shot Scope users, that’s about to become a lot easier.
The latest feature from the shot tracking experts is aerial maps, which gives app users the chance to either preview a course, or to use the app in real time in GPS mode, to better plan out their strategy.
To access this new feature, users should head to the ‘rounds’ page on the Shot Scope app and select the ‘+’ sign in the bottom right corner. From here, golfers will have the option of selecting GPS or Preview Course.
If you’re planning out a round, then head to the Preview Course section, where you can see overhead images of any hole in the UK, like below.
On each hole, you can select a point and find out how far away it is from the tee or green.
For golfers looking to plan their strategy, it’s a perfect tool. In particular, if you’re playing a course that features blind holes, or hazards that are hidden, this can give you the edge over competitors.
Once you’re on the golf course, GPS mode will give you another way to gain an advantage. You will be able to see how far hazards such as bunkers and water are from you on the hole, all with the touch of a screen.
This feature is available to any user of a Shot Scope device, including rangefinders, GPS watches, or the latest CONNEX tags.
