“It's great to see the industry take notice of the V1 Game app’s depth of inventive features,” says V1 Sports CEO Bryan Finnerty. “You are going to be hearing more and more about how V1 Game leads the way as the number-one GPS app with mind-blowing Auto Shot Detection, robust performance data analytics, and Virtual Coach and Virtual Caddie functions that make golfers better. The focused and articulated Strokes Gained reports give golfers the ability to practice smarter and lower their scores – that clearly sets us apart. Our V1 Game developers Dallas Webster and Ryan Hebert are rock stars in this business and V1 Game is going to continue to turn heads and help people play their best golf.”

Affiliated with NBC, GolfPass is a popular paid membership service that connects golfers to tee times credits, exclusive video content, world-class instruction and travel tips. The GolfPass review mentioned that V1 Game “has vaulted up the ranks of established app makers to become the best app for serious golfers using Apple Watch. Its shot tracking is the clear-cut winner among the apps that don't require club tags, while the app dashboard provides illuminating strokes gained and traditional analysis using your scoring and shot data.” It goes on to add that shot tracking really matters when the statistics dashboard isn't insightful, and V1 delivers by slicing and dicing rounds and shot data in a multitude of ways - telling users which facets of their game are losing the most shots and where they should spend practice time.

In addition to greatly enhancing the ability of an Apple Watch on-course, V1 Game can also transform a mobile phone into a golfer’s personal caddie, game performance tracker and pocket golf coach. V1 Game’s powerful GPS data provides accurate yardages to greens, hazards and landing zones to help you navigate the course like a professional. After a round is completed, V1 Game’s intuitive performance analysis technology provides a wealth of articulated statistics that reveal the user’s strengths, weaknesses and paths to improvement. With unique features such as Virtual Caddie and Virtual Coach, the sky’s the limit on GPS- and A.I.-powered game improvement. What’s more, V1 Game functions without the need for wearables, attachments or any external hardware other than a smartphone or Apple Watch.

“If you're serious about game improvement, V1 Game should be something you use every round to track your shots and gain a crucial understanding of the shots and skills you need to effectively lower your scores,” says Webster. “I was struggling a few years ago to find specific areas of my game to work on that would lead to lower scores, so I developed V1 Game. By following my Strokes Gained data in V1 Game and having it guide my practice, my handicap improved by over six shots. I couldn't have gotten this far this fast without V1 Game’s simple and effective insights. Golfers owe it to themselves to find their own journey to success with V1 Game.”
