TOPGOLF ROLLING OUT SIMULATOR-POWERED LOUNGES TO REACH NEW AUDIENCE

 

Josh Sens – Golf.com

Topgolf is out to top itself.

As part of deal announced earlier this month, the company known for its popular golf-themed entertainment complexes revealed its plans to make golf simulators a growing part of its customer experience.

The move is tied to a new partnership between Topgolf and Full Swing Golf, whose simulators Topgolf will use as it seeks to expand a new concept called the Topgolf Swing Suite lounge.

The first Topgolf Swing Suite, equipped with two simulators, lounge seating and high-def televisions, opened in January at the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston. Topgolf plans to open dozens of new Swing Suites around the country in the next few years, all of them powered by Full Swing simulator technology.

Topgolf views the suites as opportunities to reach people who might not otherwise visit their brick-and-mortar locations.
“The game of golf can be enjoyed in many different forms, whether on a course, at a Topgolf venue, at home or on your phone,” Ron Powers, Topgolf’s chief digital officer, said in a release. Powers said the partnership with Full Swing “signifies our commitment to the growing Topgolf Swing Suite business, and we look forward to expanding Topgolf’s footprint with other entertainment venues.”

The partnership also represents a business alliance between two growing brands in a golf industry better known in recent years for its struggles, as evidenced by the closures of big-box golf retailers and the exit of major names like Nike from the golf equipment business.

As part of the deal, Topgolf has made what was described as a “strategic investment” in Full Swing. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

All Full Swing simulators include our patented dual tracking technology which combines high speed cameras and infrared light wave technology to produce the most realistic ball tracking data you can get. Unlike other simulators, who’s technology analyzes the golfer and CALCULATES ball flight, Full Swing is the only tracking system that MEASURES ball flight in real-time. This means instant feedback as your shot transitions from the real world to the virtual world.

See how the tracking works in our latest product video below.

JORDAN SPIETH WINS AUSTRALIAN OPEN IN PLAYOFF

spieth-australian-open

For the second time in three years, Jordan Spieth is the winner of the Australian Open.

SYDNEY (AP) — Jordan Spieth believes his victory at the Australian Open on Sunday will “do wonders” for his career, just as it did when he won the tournament for the first time in 2014.

Spieth sank a 10-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat local hopes Cameron Smith and Ashley Hall at Royal Sydney.

Former top-ranked Spieth forced the three-way playoff after sinking another clutch par putt on the 18th hole for a 3-under 69. He joined Smith (66) and Hall (66) at 12-under 276 after 72 holes.

For Spieth, it was more than winning the tournament for a second time.

“The way we played the playoff, I think is going to do wonders for me,” Spieth said. “I’ve been in a little bit of stall hitting shots when they mattered … To hit those two shots in there, right where I wanted to hit them and then make the putt is really big going forward.”

The American added his name to an elite list of multiple winners at the Australian Open, including Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Greg Norman. Spieth improved his record to two wins and a runner-up finish in 2015 from three appearances at the Australian Open.

Four players held the lead at various times on a dramatic final day, including Spieth.

On the playoff hole – the 18th – Spieth put his approach to within…

Full Swing’s Budget-Friendly S2 Simulator: Yours for $20,000!

If cost is all that’s keeping you from installing a golf simulator in your home, good news: Full Swing Golf is rolling out a “budget” sim — yours for just under $20,000.

The company this week announced the S2, which starts at $19,900, making the same brand of simulator used by the likes of Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods more available to individuals, families and companies. (Other sims in the Full Swing collection range from about $30,000 up to $50,000.)

The S2 also is targeted toward teaching pros. “We’re hoping to equip golf professionals with the opportunity to extend their teaching season throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions,” said company CEO Ryan Dotters.

The S2 innovation offers an install-it-yourself setup, requiring little more than 200 square feet, with the same dual tracking technology seen in previous iterations by Full Swing. The sim serves up a slate of 87 courses, plus an interactive practice facility.

Sure, $20,000 is still a hefty sum — roughly the sticker price of a 2017 Honda Civic — but there’s no better way to keep off the winter rust.

SAN DIEGO, Calif., November 15, 2016 – Full Swing Golf, the leader in indoor golf technology, today announced plans to debut the latest model in its award winning series of golf simulators, the S2. Specifically developed to offer customers a Full Swing Golf experience, but at a more affordable price starting at $19,900. “The S2 simulator is the first of its kind to be a DIY installation at the lowest cost of ownership, allowing more families, businesses and golf courses, the ability to own a simulator,” explained CEO of Full Swing Golf, Ryan Dotters.

The S2 is streamlined in design and set up for self-installation, allowing for great compatibility on any type of flooring within varying spaces. The product gives greater access to different types of customers, especially golf facilities that remain open during the winter season and throughout the year. “With the streamlined installation process, smaller footprint and best value for the price, we’re hoping to equip golf professionals with the opportunity to extend their teaching season throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions,” said Dotters.

Additionally, the new S2 series allows golfers and their families to enjoy, learn, and play the game more frequently, at a faster pace. “Our dual tracking technology combines high speed camera and infrared light wave technology to produce the most realistic ball tracking data you can get,” explained Senior Vice President, Jason Fierro. “At Full Swing, we strive to constantly develop the highest quality, best performing golf simulation technology in the world and the S2 series delivers this at the best value for the price,” added Fierro.
