A deviceless A.I.-powered Smart Caddie
Amateur golfers tend to improvise shots that are too risky, and regret playing them right after. On their side, professionals carefully prepare their game plan before each competition with their caddie.
Hello Birdie is unique as it brings a Smart Caddie to amateur golfers so they can prepare their golf round like a pro. Our AI-based algorithm calculates the best strategy in order to provide a complete game plan specific to the player profile, which self-adjusts at each round.
The app is ideal for most players (from HCP 0 to 28) who want to progress, and presents the best tactical options and club sequences on each hole in order to consolidate an individualized game plan in order to let the golfer play at its proper level. Every golfer can then manually adjust the game plan if they wish.
It works from day one, and allows the golfer to acquire his performance data effortlessly and without electronic devices, so that predictions can evolve according to his actual capabilities.
On the golf course, the Live Caddie provides Club Recommendations based on the playing conditions and the golfer’s capabilities. The Caddie provides the Plays Like Distances based on every element that impacts the ball.
After each round, golfers can consult an in-depth round recap or even access – after only a couple of rounds – to a multi-rounds dashboard where their real level is displayed, area by area, showing performances based on Strokes Gained method adapted to the amateur world. It also provides comprehensive data and graphs useful to guide the next training session.
