Inrange uses ultra-sensitive radar sensors alongside in-app data and insights powered by the technology’s algorithm. The Inrange handicap dynamically calculates player performance, and it gives them the information they need to practice with purpose.  

“Players can use the data provided by this technology to track how they are playing, identify what they are doing right, and optimize their skills for on-course performance. They have access to information that allows them to refine their skills whether or not they are professional players or people looking to improve their game. Smart technology allows for players to enjoy a purpose-driven practice that challenges their skills and their experience,” continues Longley.
