About two months after it partnered with TaylorMade to bring integrated golf experiences to its Band fitness wearable, Microsoft today announced an expansion of that partnership, adding support for TaylorMade’s myRoundPro to the device.

“Microsoft Band is the first wearable that, with TaylorMade and myRoundPro, tracks your golf game and overall fitness in one integrated device,” Microsoft’s Brian Bilodeau notes in a new post to the Conversations blog. “And, because Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health are designed for you, with data created by you, to encourage you to live your healthiest life – we help you to integrate golf into your health plan and fitness journey.”

In late June, Microsoft announced its partnership with TaylorMade, adding golf tracking and analysis to Microsoft Band. This includes a course finder, in-game progress reports, post-game analysis, and guided workouts for golf. At the time, Microsoft also noted that more was coming soon, and that it would work with TaylorMade to integrate myRoundPro with Band, providing a more detailed statistical analysis of your game that would include “classic golf statistics, such as fairways hit and greens in regulation, proximity to the hole, strokes gained and much more; all developed to help you adapt and improve your game.”

That integration arrives today. Now, when myRoundPro users sign-in to the Microsoft Health web dashboard you will see additional information derived from myRoundPro, including:

  • Mapped shot locations
  • Fairways hit
  • Greens in regulation
  • Putts per round
  • Sand saves
  • Scoring average
  • Shot proximity to hole
  • Strokes gained
