The ParryMeter feeds data into a smartphone application. It operates using a Pro V1 golf ball, which sits directly beneath the smartphone. The app records 2,000 readings per run while the smartphone's accelerometer and gyroscope measure vertical and lateral deviation.

The app, available for Apple devices and coming soon on Android, combines recorded data with user-inputted information to produce a comprehensive greens performance profile.

Turf managers making purchases of qualifying Everris and Syngenta products can earn Reward points towards a ParryMeter or other offers.
