Taylormade teams up with Samsung

Friday, September 29, 2017

TaylorMade and Samsung have announced a partnership that will allow users to tap into the myRoundPro statistics platform.

The move gives Samsung Gear S3 and Gear Fit2 Pro wearers the opportunity to make use of the app's features from the wrist, as opposed to having their smartphone out on a round. That means golfers can view yardage to the front, middle and back of the green, alongside the total distance of their previous shot.

Through the app, the compatible Gear devices are also able to keep tabs on the scores from each hole and provide a summary of key stats upon a round's completion. For those who don't mind tapping their wrist consistently in order to gauge feedback, the app can let golfers attribute a club to each shot, too.

One statistical feature included is called Strokes Gained. As opposed to simply using greens in regulation, strokes gained will provide insight into which part of your golf game is negatively impacting your score most.

For precise end-of-round statistics users can attribute a club within the app to each shot they take. This gives golfers a better understanding of what did and didn’t work during a round. myRoundPro will keep track of every round you’ve logged making it easy to look back at your progress (or lack thereof) over time.
