Earlier this year, Microsoft and TaylorMade teamed up to help track your golf game. Today, TaylorMade and Microsoft announced the upcoming integration of TaylorMade’s myRoundPro into the Microsoft Band, promising to help you improve your game.

Since June, the Band has been able to track your score by analyzing swings and keeping tabs on your location with GPS data. It also did all the fitness tracking the app usually does.

With the upcoming integration, you’ll be able to map your shot locations on an illustrated green, keeping track of fairway hits, greens in regulation and sand saves. You’ll also get data on scoring averages, putts per round and shot proximity to hole.

The Band will start integrating this data into myRoundPro in the coming weeks. To get the data, Band owners will have to sign up for myRoundPro. Check out this FAQ for all the details on getting set up in preparation for the integration.

While the using the Band to track our game was a little distracting when GeekWire tested it on the links, the added benefit of all this data may make it worth the hassle. And with the upcoming coaching advice available in myRoundPro, you may be able to shave a few strokes off your future rounds.
