Tour Star / TV Analyst Roger Maltbie and PGA Teacher of the Year Mike Malaska
Segments Showcase Game-Improvement Aspects of Affordable In-Home Golf Simulator
(TRAVERSE CITY, MI)—Dancin’ Dogg Golf—maker of the OptiShot Infrared Simulator, the ultimate in-home virtual golf system—announces it has launched a series of instructional vignettes on Golf Channel featuring Tour star / TV analyst Roger Maltbie and PGA Teacher of the Year Mike Malaska that the network will begin airing this week.
Showcasing tips and drills that are perfect for players of all abilities, the segments address some of the most common areas for game improvement. Lessons include increasing clubhead speed, managing distance on shots, establishing a pre-shot routine, controlling the clubface and preventing a slice.
“Each exercise is drawn directly from Roger and Mike’s decades of experience competing against, commentating on and teaching the game’s best players,” says Brandon Theophilus, CEO of Dancin’ Dogg Golf. “OptiShot is an important, fun vehicle for game improvement with immediate feedback to aid your progress—using your own clubs, from the comfort of home.”
Each one-minute segment highlights OptiShot’s incredibly realistic graphics and enhanced shot feedback that provides clubhead speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight. Ideal for use on OptiShot’s driving range or in practice mode on any of its courses, the lessons will also be available at http://www.OptiShotGolf.com.
OptiShot ($399.95) connects with Windows computers via a plug-and-play interface and requires only 8-1/2 feet of swing space. Up to four players per round can compete by hitting real balls, foam balls (provided) or no ball at all. Infrared sensors on a durable swing pad provide precise analysis for each shot and detailed statistics tracking that can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet.
In addition to Core courses that come with the system, OptiShot users can purchase a wide range of premium layouts ($49.95), including replicas of major championship venues and PGA Tour sites such as Atlanta Highlands, Capitol Club, Cogs Corner, Jones Lake, Monterey Classic, Old Scot, Ponte Vedra, Royal St. Marks and Whispering Dunes.
