In the game of golf, the pressure (or force) with which the golfer grips the golf club is an important factor that affects overall results. Consistency of grip during a drive or putt is key to predictably and repeatedly placing the ball at the desired location. The ability to measure consistency of grip and provide confirmation to the golfer ahead of swinging the club—reduces (or removes) one of the many variables that ultimately affects where the golf ball lands.

To solve this problem, Microsoft technology partner Sensoria, Inc., professional golfer Bryson DeChambeau, the Microsoft Developer and Evangelism team, and other golf partners recently collaborated to build a new high-tech IoT solution involving a smart, connected golf grip.
This “Smart Grip” detects golfer’s hand-on-grip position and levels of pressure, monitors his golf strokes on different clubs and relays real-time data to Microsoft Azure intelligent systems. The data is then rendered for golfer on a Microsoft Surface with an elegant Universal Windows Platform Application.
