Modern technology is transforming the game of golf. Today, golf apps make scoring, tracking handicaps, and course viewing easier than ever before; gyroscopic swing analyzers help golfers iron out the kinks, and GPS golf watches are making conventional range finders all but obsolete. But there is perhaps no other golf technology as entertaining and flat-out fun than the golf simulator — and now you can enjoy your very own, right at home, without breaking the bank. Introducing the OptiShot2 golf simulator.
The Optishot2 comprises 16 high-speed 48MHz infrared sensors and golf simulator software for what OptiShot says is an incredibly accurate and realistic golf simulation experience — we call it a party in a box for golfers. And now you can win one with our exclusive giveaway.
The system is said to be capable of precisely tracking club head speed, face angle, swing path, distance traveled, face contact, swing tempo and shot shape in order to project an accurate depiction of ball travel on a host of pre-programmed 3D golf courses (including a mock-up of the famed Augusta National course where The Masters is played).
All you need is a Windows or Mac computer (even a modest laptop will do), display (we like a projector and projection screen best), and perhaps a net and turf pad. The OptiShot2 package includes everything else you’ll need, including foam balls.
Imagine playing rain or shine, in any room big enough to swing your clubs … maybe even throw a golf party for your friends. But you’ll need to enter our giveaway!
We at Digital Trends have logged countless hours on the OptiShot2 in our offices — it’s amazing we get any work done — and we can assure you, not only is it an absolute blast to play, it’s a great way to work on your game.
