Graeme McDowell carded a 2-over 74 on the first day of last week's British Open before quickly turning things around. McDowell finished with three rounds in the 60s, highlighted by a 5-under 67 on Sunday catapulting him up the leaderboard en route to a top-10 finish.
McDowell said in an interview with Golf.com that he is currently playing some of the best golf of the season. One of the tools he uses to improve his performance is GAME GOLF, a digital shot-tracking system in which McDowell is an investor and user. The system can help golfers by recording a number of key metrics during a round, including shot distance and direction. That means you know exactly how far you hit that gap wedge and in which direction you tend to miss off the tee.
Here are some more ways G-Mac uses the system, and how it can help you, too:
GAME GOLF helps G-Mac study each shot from his round by logging different components of his play on the course, like displaying distance and direction averages, proximity to the hole and other factors.
There's a social aspect to GAME GOLF too. You can share your progress (and long drives) with playing partners and friends while you carve strokes off your handicap. The technology is finally here to find out who is really knocking them stiff and hitting drives out of sight – and that never gets old.
