  • SkyTrak™ Receives Best Overall Ranking In The MyGolfSpy 2015 Personal LM Buyers Guide

    RIDGELAND, Miss., April 30, 2015... SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie® the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, today announced that the SkyTrak™ Personal Launch Monitor has received the Best Overall ranking in the MyGolfSpy 2015 Personal Launch Monitor Buyers Guide.

    The SkyTrak Personal Launch Monitor is a complete golf practice, play and entertainment System for golf at home or any location. Delivering accurate and realistic ball flight, the SkyTrak offers the performance of a commercial simulator and connects wirelessly to your iPad Air or iPad mini. SkyTrak accurately captures thousands of data points from a golfer hitting balls with their own clubs into a net at home to simulate practice and play as if you were on the course or practice tee.

    "SkyTrak offers a plethora of data, reliability, and consistency at an affordable price," noted MyGolfSpy. "SkyTrak is your most accurate option under $2,000. Upcoming simulator capabilities will make it a no-brainer for those looking for an inexpensive, yet realistic indoor setup."

    MyGolfSpy put four personal launch monitors to the test to find out which ones actually perform as advertised. To establish and quantify accuracy, units were tested alongside a professional-grade launch monitor. Shots were recorded simultaneously and the results were collected from each device for comparison with the control unit. Results are based on a collection of driver, hybrid, 7-iron, and pitching wedge shots. Each unit registered a total of 120 shots.

    Writing about the SkyTrak, MyGolfSpy says, "The numbers were the most consistent of any unit in this test. That borders on excellent when you consider that the cost for some of the big boys run 10 times the price. For those looking for an "affordable" in-home simulator, SkyTrak has announced simulation options coming in the near future. The reported online capabilities will likely add to the value and fun of this unit."

    SkyTrak has recently entered into a licensing and development agreement with WGT Golf to integrate their golf game with SkyTrak to offer golfers everywhere the freedom to play championship courses with their own clubs in a stunning, high-definition virtual environment. WGT Golf is an online and mobile golf game played by millions and known for its championship tournaments featuring famous and realistic golf courses. Golf is played virtually on actual golf courses around the world using patented 3D photo-realistic images and terrain-mapping technology.

    WGT Golf expects their integration with SkyTrak to be ready for market in mid-2015, so SkyTrak users will be able join the over 10 million golfers worldwide playing the WGT Golf game with their own clubs and balls.

    "The SkyTrak personal launch monitor was designed to provide the accurate measurements of a commercial-quality product, at a fraction of the cost, to reflect a golfer's actual performance for game improvement and entertainment." said Richard Edmonson, SkyGolf CEO. "Our goal is to deliver the reliability and accuracy required to help golfers play better, play more and derive more enjoyment from the game and we are pleased that the MyGolfSpy testing has verified the capabilities and functionality of SkyTrak."

    While entertaining, SkyTrak is not a toy, but a serious tool that accurately reflects the golfer's actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement when getting to the course is not possible. SkyTrak captures the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight over a vivid 3D practice range. SkyTrak measures and then uses very sophisticated algorithms to produce highly accurate simulations of a golfer's actual ball flight to improve their games and provide more fun. SkyTrak also offers various challenges for engaging practice such as Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Targets, along with Shot History Tables, Performance by Club, and helpful data screens. It's easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the course.

    SkyTrak users have the option to upload their practice and play data to the SkyGolf 360 cloud service for storage, analysis and sharing with friends via the new SkyGolf 360 App and enjoy the benefits of being part of the fast-growing online community of passionate golfers via integration with popular social networks. The ability to share with friends will make the interactive platform the centerpiece of a consumer's in-home golf practice and entertainment experience.

    Weighing less than 2 pounds and under 7 inches tall, SkyTrak works wirelessly with an interactive App that runs on compatible iPads to create a practice environment that's fun for golfers. Initially available for Apple iOS, the SkyTrak Personal Launch Monitor retails for $1,995. For more information on the SkyTrak Personal Launch Monitor System, visit skytrakgolf.com

  • R-Motion simulator fits in your hand, lets you play 100s of virtual courses
    GSF_Admin
    The R-Motion golf simulator is so compact you might not even know it’s there. At least not until you hit a shot and watch a computer monitor showing your ball sailing over the first green at Pinehurst No. 2.

    The R-Motion requires nothing more than your clubs and a ball and a PC. It uses a slide-on motion sensor similar to what’s been developed for training aids like Swingbyte and SkyPro, but R-Motion’s technology is singularly focused on simulating a round of golf on one of 15...
