Ontario, Canada – June 1, 2011– Interactive Sports Technologies™, the makers of High Definition Golf™ simulators, is pleased to announce that PGA Tour Professional Kevin Streelman has purchased and installed an HD Golf™ simulator in his Scottsdale, Arizona home. Streelman will use the highly advanced golf simulator for year round training, equipment testing and recreational play.
Kevin earned his PGA Tour card in 2007 and in an exciting rookie year, had four top-10 finishes and a 35th place finish in the FedEx Cup, which paved the way for Kevin's win of the 2009 Kodak Challenge in his sophomore year. He further improved his standing on the tour in 2010 with seven top-10 finishes and a 25th place finish in the FedEx Cup.
“The team at HD Golf™ should be very proud of their accomplishments with this product, they have thought of everything. My simulator is designed as a complete golf instruction studio with a series of very accurate tools that provide me with detailed shot analysis, video swing analysis, swing dynamics and my personal favorite, weight transfer and balance analysis,” says Streelman. “Each of these tools provides instant feedback and work together seamlessly from a single system. For example I can capture and display my swing and weight transfer data together, so that I can get a detailed overview of my overall performance. All the information is displayed on the system touch screen and big screen and it is really easy to operate the system or analyze my results. I also use the simulator to test out new equipment and in my spare time, I can play some of the best golf courses in the world in my own home.”
“Kevin joins a growing list of PGA Tour players, who use High Definition Golf™ simulators for year round training, practice and equipment testing,” said Geoffrey Vertlieb, Director of Marketing. “The PGA tour players appreciate that when they are playing and training in an HD Golf™ simulator, they are playing ‘real golf’. The courses look and play like the real thing, and the HD Golf™ simulator makes more measurements, more accurately than other systems currently on the market. And, the feedback we receive from the pros is also a tremendous benefit as it helps us to develop and refine our products, which in turn benefits anyone who purchases a High Definition Golf™ simulator. Whether they are purchasing the simulator for home use, building their club fitting or retail business or opening an indoor golf center.”
About The HD Golf™ Pro Golf Instruction Studio
High Definition Golf™ has developed a totally integrated professional golf instruction studio which is easy-to-use, completely modular in design and includes diagnostic tools for detailed shot analysis, video swing analysis, swing dynamics and weight transfer/balance analysis. These professional-grade tools operate seamlessly from a single computer system, providing comprehensive data collection and various simultaneous display options. The system also generates a variety of performance reports that are customizable and can be uploaded to “Player Lockers” on the web that the student can use to access and review lessons, statistics, video swing files and club fitting information, as well as sign up for tournaments and league play.
High Definition Golf™ pioneered computer vision technology for the golf simulator industry, and their systems make more measurements more accurately than any other simulator currently on the market. These include distance (carry and roll), ball speed, club-head speed, efficiency (“smash factor”), launch angle, swing-path (outside/in, inside/out), club head angle at impact, ball position (re: club-head at impact) and the very important ball spin and spin axis. The simulator will also measure angle of attack, club head acceleration, position of maximum club head speed, club head speed at impact and swing tempo. HD Golf™ is also the only simulator with the unique capability to dynamically measure shaft flex and load factor, allowing club fitters to make precise shaft recommendations.
