for Award-Winning OptiShot Infrared SimulatorRed Wickers Precisely Captures Features of Iconic Philadelphia-Area Course
Hosting Fifth U.S. Open Championship
“Playing a major championship venue, especially one as unforgettable as this week’s site, is high on the bucket list of all golfers,” says Russell Edens, CEO of Dancin’ Dogg. “By capturing even the smallest details with remarkable accuracy, our system makes it possible for everyone to tee it up at the ‘Boutique Open.’”
Alongside other major championship tracks – such as Atlanta Highlands, Capitol Club, Fylde Links, Golden Gate Club, Jones Lake, Monterey Classic, Old Scot and Whispering Dunes – Red Wickers ($74.95) is available for download at www.dancindogg.com. The basic OptiShot system (MSRP: $399.95) comes standard with 12 true-to-life designs, as well as a par-3 option and realistic driving range.
“For less than the cost of a new driver, OptiShot offers an experience totally distinct from everything else on the market,” adds Edens. “From the comfort of home, you, your family and friends can play real golf, any time, using your own clubs and learn what it’s like to truly be inside the ropes on the game’s grandest stages.”
Connecting with Windows computers via a plug-and-play interface, OptiShot requires only 8-½ feet of swing space. Up to four players per round can compete by hitting real balls, foam balls (provided) or no ball at all. Infrared sensors on a durable swing pad precisely record club head speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight.
A refined user interface, sleek new design, easier-to-read data, improved navigation, variety of putting modes, custom display options and the ability to preview premium courses were recently introduced as part of the next generation OptiShot software. Also included:
