Data mining: A sample Game Golf screen.
How'd you like to collect and analyze all your stats during a round without writing down a single number or keying anything into your smartphone? That's the promise of Game Golf, a $270 system designed with input from Graeme McDowell and Lee Westwood.
The program comes with dime-size tags that fit on the butt end of each club. You wave your club in front of a device affixed to your belt buckle before each shot, so it knows which club you're using. Game Golf computes distances, fairways hit, greens in regulation, and more. You can also compare numbers with your buddies.
Game Golf will be available in late October. If you pre-order, you'll be entered in a contest to win a nine-hole round with McDowell. More information.
