Although some golfers are looking for a fast off-the-grid time, the picturesque hills and the blue sky of the putting green are not immune to the ever-expanding range of augmented reality. A new update to the Golfshot Mobile App brings new AR capabilities to iPhones and iPads, designed to help golfers determine shot ranges during the course.
Golfscape AR, superimposed distances to the front, middle and back of the Green Vias the camera view of the app. The app uses GPS to determine the distance between distances, supporting more than 40,000 golf courses.
The new Golfscape AR feature is now available through an App Store update. While Golfshot is also available in the Play Store, AR features are not available for the Android app.
And while the app and its new AR features are free, an annual subscription of $ 29.99 (or $ 4.99 per month) provides the ability to see real-time layup and price target distances as well as dangers like sand traps, waters and trees. Pro users can also get club referrals for these distances. Alternatively, golfers can opt for the Golfshot Plus, which costs $ 29.99 and gives users more training videos.
Shot range is an important measurable value in golf, and if you know the yardage and matching club, This can be frustrating, which is difficult even for experienced players to master. In the future, I imagine that a feature like this is even more indispensable for Smartglasses, as far as permitted by the rules of the golf boards.
Golfshot will not help you to take the disc out of your drive or put the right note on your putt. On the other hand, augmented reality is still an emerging technology. As body tracking technology progresses, there may soon be an AR app that helps golfers take a few punches out of their game.
