GAME GOLF Smart Caddie Helps You Make Data-Driven Decisions on the Course

(RELEASE) - GAME GOLF Smart Caddie uses artificial intelligence to help golfers make data-driven decisions as they play. It’s like having your own personal caddie who considers every shot you’ve ever hit, has identified all of your tendencies, understands the course and adjusts for weather and elevation in making its real-time recommendations. This allows for Smart Caddie to provide a golfer with actual yardages and “Plays Like” yardages based on the data.

GAME GOLF Smart Caddie presents high, optimal and low risk strategies and club recommendations to users. Developing the machine learning algorithms necessary for the caddie function was in large part a result of GAME GOLF’s supply of more than two million rounds of data.

“Our data has shown that 96% of golfers tend to choose the wrong club. With the evolution of Smart Caddie, now our users will receive club and strategy recommendations on how to play every hole during their round.

To be truly accurate, the data set needs to be large enough for the machine learning algorithms to be pointed at the data set and deliver real value to the golfer.” – John McGuire, CEO, GAME GOLF.

GAME GOLF has the largest dataset of on-course usage in the industry which allows them to draw insights from over two million rounds with users in 137 countries. That is what 60 billion GPS data points delivers to the golfer and Smart Caddie will be available to use on over 36,000 courses worldwide.

GAME GOLF, Golf’s #1 Stat Tracker, is proud to announce the official release of their new Smart Caddie feature for their iOS and Android apps.

Smart Caddie is a premium feature* within the GAME GOLF app and is compatible with the GAME GOLF Free App (iOS and Android), along with GAME GOLF LIVE and the newly announced GAME GOLF PRO hardware devices. GAME GOLF is offering a 7 Day Free Trial to all its users. From there, they will have two options; monthly ($5.99) or yearly ($49.99) subscriptions.

*Golfers must play three 18 hole rounds using a GAME GOLF product to unlock this feature as it allows us to gather enough data to take a golfer’s on-course tendencies into consideration when providing our recommendations.
