Technological advancements have a huge impact on every sector and industry. Even in sports, the integration of technology has made playing and watching sports much better.

While Golf is a pretty simple game, technology has had an immense impact on the sport in the past two decades. You still have to swing the club yourself, but innovation in the tools, equipment, shoes, balls, and clubs has made the sport more enjoyable. In addition, technology aids the efforts of a beginner to learn the ropes of the game.

These innovations not only make the sport more enjoyable but enables one to be better at it.

For instance, products like the Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors stick to your clubs, and with their advanced AI features, it displays various performance metrics onto a mobile phone app. Golfers can assess how well they did and how they can improve their swing.

Here is a look at some of the technologies and gadgets that have impacted the sport.

Golf Club Technology

Unlike any other equipment used in Golf, the clubs have more importance, and in the past years, clubs have changed more than any other aspect of the game.

Golfers have been able to reap the benefits of innovations in aerodynamics, component weight, and better materials.

Such advancements enable the golfers to hit the ball longer and straighter. The drivers are made with aerodynamics in mind, resulting in better clubhead speed for an improved shot.

The components of a golf club are now lighter and stronger than ever, owing to the use of graphite. On average, today’s drivers weigh fifty grams less than old drivers. Fifty grams may not seem a big number, but lighter equipment improves the shot drastically.

Autonomous push carts

Seeing caddies pulling the golf cart or controlling a remote control cart for golfers is not an unusual sight. But, in the PFA merchandise show of 2019, a company launched a hands-free, autonomous push cart that will carry all your golf essentials. The functionality is simple, golfers have to clip in a sensor onto their belt buckle, and the autonomous cart will follow the golfers wherever they go.

The cart comes with ample space for your club holders, bottles, and even a mini cooler.

Robotic Swing Trainer

It is a product that may seem like a far-fetched reality, but it is convenient and is being used by beginners to master their swings. Golf masters believe that there is nothing better than an ingrained muscle memory of the swing and a robotic swing trainer helps you do just that. You get to learn the exact motions of a golf swing with utmost precision.

Club Sensors

As an avid golfer or even a beginner, you would surely want to keep improving your swing to the point of perfection.

Keeping track of all your shots and other performance metrics is essential to assess and improve your game.

The Arccos Caddie smart sensors can be attached to your golf clubs to track and monitor every shot you play. The data collected by the sensors can be accessed using a simple mobile application.

You will be able to monitor your performance, including speed of the swing, angle, and accuracy.

Such technological advancements make the game more convenient and help the golfers improve their game.
