Making moves

2014-2015 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and TaylorMade Tour staff professional Daniel has been officially named brand ambassador for myRoundPro. Along with golfers around the world, TaylorMade’s standalone analytics platform allows Berger to track his progress and enhance his performance through the use of statistical barometers, such as strokes gained, greens in regulation, proximity to hole and fairways hit.

“In a sport where everyone is trying to get better, you have to strive to be the best that you can be. To be successful at any given thing it takes a lot of effort and time and myRoundPro enables you to focus on what’s important,” says the golfing pro.

To give the best possible experience for myRoundPro, TaylorMade Golf’s partnership with Microsoft and its Microsoft Band (in conjunction with the Golf Tile) provides golfers of any skill level with extraordinary shot tracking and analysis capabilities.

The functionality of the Golf Tile on the Band includes: shot tracking and detection; GPS yardages to front, middle and back of the green; a digital scorecard and biometrics such as calories burned, steps taken, heart rate and duration of the round.

An added benefit of myRoundPro on the Microsoft Band is ‘Tournament Mode’. This option can be activated before the round and allows the app to be used during competition play as regulated by golf’s governing bodies.
