Being able to hit the fairway and greens in golf video games is pretty easy as long as you always consider the wind as well as the numerous small imperfections on any course. But doing the same thing in actual golf can be quite the challenge, especially if you don’t consider yourself to even be a golf amateur.
A new program from San Francisco-based developer Game called Game Golf can help you with your golf game as it uses a combination of sensors, GPS and NFC to help track each shot taken during a player’s round. That data can then be accessed via your smartphones, tablets or computers to then give players feedback on how to improve their performance. Golf Game also allows players the ability to share their highlights to friends across a number of social networks.
Game Golf is currently in its crowd-funding stages as it recently launched on Indiegogo and is looking to raise $125,000 to help with production. Game offers a number of early adopter specials starting at $149.
Game Golf is expected to cost around $249 which gets you the entire system as well as a one-year subscription to its data service.
