Shot Scope exhibited their wearable technology product at the 2017 PGA Show in Florida, subsequently increasing sales in America considerably and leading the company to reducing has shipping times from ten to three days.
An announcement is expected in the coming weeks to confirm that the company has signed a deal partnering themselves with the biggest names in American sports retailing.
