High Definition Golf™ Introduces Revolutionary Club fitting System
New system will allow customers to compare clubs with ease and precision
Ontario,Canada – April 19, 2010 – Interactive Sports Technologies is pleased to announce the release of a new precision and easy-to-use club fitting system for use in High Definition Golf simulators.
Professional club fitters take into consideration many factors when fitting clubs to a golfer. Whether it is a student just learning the game or a seasoned professional with years of experience the right fitting and most comfortable clubs will ultimately determine how well an individual will play the game.The big question is where do you start? Today, with so many choices in the marketplace, clubfitters need a better tool that will help connect the golfer to his or her perfect clubs.
After studying the club fitting industry for many years, the engineers and scientists at Interactive Sports Technologies have developed a club fitting system that is easy-to-use and integrates seamlessly into the HD golf simulator. The HDG™ club fitting software uses advanced computer vision technology to make a comprehensive series of highly accurate measurements in “real-time” which are then displayed on the simulator touch screen and large display screen for instant feedback. Using the intuitive user interface, the club fitter can track every club, shaft or even golf ball being tested and will allow the club fitter to gap every club in their customers bag. As a result the customer will be rewarded with a bag full of clubs that fit well and are fine-tuned for their level of play.
Using this advanced tool, club fitters can study the data they receive and then make recommendations based on key performance indicators that can now be captured and displayed by the golf simulator. These include shot distance, ball speed, club speed, launch angle, club face angle and ball spin. Additional ball and club measurements include shaft flex profile, club head acceleration, position of maximum club head speed, angle of attack, load factor and even swing tempo.
“We believe the simulator is the ideal environment for testing and comparing clubs. The simulator and the software literally watch and record everything the golfer does with extreme accuracy. In return, it displays that information in an organized way, that is easy to understand, and easy for club fitters and clients to work with,” says Todd Richardson, President and CEO of High Definition Golf simulators. “In general, there is a lot of science behind the way we develop products, but the key to our success has always been our ability to translate that into real-world tools.”
The HDG™ club fitting software is FREE to HDG™ customers and can be downloaded simply by pressing the software update button on their golf simulator touch screen.
