Canadian golfers will now have a standalone analytics platform available to them from golf equipment industry giant TaylorMade.
The company has announced that their “myRoundPro” platform, which includes Canadian golf courses, has been launched. It will allow golfers to track and benchmark themselves through statistics and analytics, and not just the old reliables like fairways and greens hit, etc. It includes Strokes Gained, the measurement created by academic and author Mark Broadie that allows golfers to compare all their shots (from 1 foot to 600 yards) to other golfers.
Golfers can access myRoundPro through a free web platform but TaylorMade also has a partnership with Microsoft and using the new Microsoft band 2 (a wearable device) golfers can synchronize their rounds directly.
Using the Microsoft Band and the Microsoft Health app golfers can sync their rounds and then view classic statistics or even look at dispersion charts, shot records viewed on individual maps of every hole played, Strokes Gained in driving, approach shots, putting and more.
“Golf is a decidedly technical game and every little advantage helps,” said John Gonsalves, TaylorMade’s Vice President of Direct to Consumer & Digital. “We are extremely proud to offer players of all abilities an in-depth analytics platform in myRoundPro. At TaylorMade, innovation is the genesis of everything we do, which goes beyond our equipment. myRoundPro is truly an extension of our desire to enhance the game of golf in every way.”
