golf gadgetsGolf is simultaneously one of the most fun and frustrating games you’ll ever play. Even players with a lot of skill and experience have days where nothing seems to be in their favor. For any budding golfer, consistency is the most valuable skill you can learn in your game.

Some of the data that it makes available includes a 360 degree perspective of swing speed, club head path, angle of attack, club head angle, and even club head acceleration.

The Optishot 2 Golf Simulator
Sometimes there just isn’t a golf course available to practice on. At times like this, it’s great to be able to turn to the Optishot 2 Simulator. This clever tool attaches to any club, and if the user has enough room to swing the clubs, game on! Many real life golf courses are made available virtually through this device.
