For most all golfers, it’s the last few feet, not the first few hundred hards that prove the most difficult. Trips to put-put golf courses, afternoons in the office spent sinking balls into cups, and expensive one-on-one courses are all ways for the linksman to improve on his game – but TaylorMade’s new Spider Interactive Smart Putter may be better.
The Carlsbad, California-based golf brand teamed up with Blast Motion and SuperStroke Golf to infuse their most popular putter with an array of sensors in the club’s grip for tracking things like back stroke, forward stroke, and overall tempo. All if this information is then visualized in an accompanying app for analyzing by a golfer. Find something in the data that stands out as an issue? The app also provides instructional content from YouTube golf personalities. And don’t worry about charging. The sensor is can be juiced-up easily with the Blast charging pad.
