LONDON, UK - (February 11, 2015) - Sophie Walker will chalk up a European Ladies Tour first this month when she becomes the latest professional golfer to use GAME GOLF during an official tournament.
Already approved for use in competition by the R&A and USGA, Walker received consent by the Ladies European Tour and the ALPG to use GAME GOLF throughout the month of February during the Australian Masters, Australian Open and New Zealand Open. GAME GOLF is a wearable device and integrated software platform which tracks and captures real performance data and displays rounds of golf in a dynamic and socially driven interface.
Walker said: “GAME GOLF has already revolutionised the way I structure and analyse my practice so I can’t wait to get it out on the course to see how it helps in a competitive scenario. I’m a big believer in the potential of technology to change how golfers approach the game and in a sport of fine margins, the odd shot here or there could be the difference between success and failure.”
