SwingSmart Receives Coveted GOLF Magazine ‘Techy Award’

Leading-Edge Swing Analyzer Heralded for Delivering Detailed Swing Stats Direct to Smartphone and Tablet Devices

(NORTH BARRINGTON, IL) – NewSpin Golf announces that the SwingSmart – its innovative golf swing analyzer that provides in-depth information on critical elements of a golfer’s swing – has received a GOLF Magazine “Techy Award” in the Training Aid category.

Appearing in the November issue, this latest distinction comes after the publication last year named the SwingSmart “Best App for Instant Feedback.” It cites the system’s ability to identify and help correct swing flaws by gathering key data points. This occurs via a Bluetooth-enabled sensor module weighing less than 1 oz. that securely clips to a golf club shaft and instantly transmits information to an app on the user’s iOS or Android device.

“This exceptional, independent validation of our leadership in the training category has been made possible by our advanced engineering and intelligent design,” says Angelo Papadourakis, CEO of NewSpin Golf. “By spending thousands of hours on development, we’ve created a tool that helps golfers of all skill levels make their swings more consistent, efficient and repeatable.”

Available for free download on the Google Play and iTunes stores, the SwingSmart app allows information to be viewed immediately, shared with an instructor, or saved for future reference.  It also includes a defining feature of the system – instructional videos through which renowned teacher Peter Kostis provides a variety of swing tips to help players optimize performance.

  • Detailed, easy-to-interpret data delivered instantaneously by the SwingSmart system ($249.99) includes:
  • Key Stats – Tempo, swing speed, face angle, shaft lean, club path; info on each and optimization tips provided within the app by world-renowned instructor Peter Kostis
  • Path and Plane – 3D Swing View shows 360-degrees of a player’s swing motion, highlighting the exact route of the club head from any angle
  • Putting Results – More than just a full-swing tool, the system also provides info on the putting stroke to help players lower the number of putts taken per round
  • Personal Best – Data from a golfer’s best swings can be saved and used as points of reference
  • Developed by a team of expert technologists, SwingSmart provides a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact. This allows players to adjust and learn what is successful for their individual games. A great, year-round practice tool, SwingSmart features a special Training mode that provides the key data necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.

    Earlier this year, the company launched the SwingSmart Duo, which incorporates HiQ Technology.  Requiring zero user set-up, adjustment or calibration, HiQ is built using a proprietary pattern recognition process not found anywhere else in the industry, which increases the accuracy of captured swing data, including the renowned SwingSmart 3D Swing View™. It utilizes a patent-pending algorithm that adapts to each user’s swing to faithfully measure their drives, chips and putts.

    Designed and assembled in the USA, SwingSmart’s portable sensor module comes with a personal carrying case and rechargeable battery that lasts more than four hours. It is widely recognized by PGA Professionals as a useful way to augment lessons.

    Adams Golf Shatters Previous Standards with Breakthrough Technology in New XTD Family of Clubs

    Driver Boasts Hottest Face in Golf, Most Advanced Forged Iron Ever Features First-Ever Cut-Thru Slot

    PLANO, TEXAS, October 16, 2013 – Adams Golf – known for its game-changing innovation and easy-to-hit equipment – introduces the XTD family of clubs showcasing an array of breakthrough technologies that set new benchmarks for forgiveness and ball speed generation.

    Adams tests every XTD driver four times throughout the manufacturing process to ensure maximum clubhead spring-like effect within USGA limits, resulting in the hottest face in golf. This is a unique process not known to be practiced by any other manufacturer. XTD fairway woods and hybrids include a combination of technologies never seen before and Adams created the most advanced forged irons ever, featuring a hollow design and the category’s only Cut-Thru™ slot.

    “Quite frankly, these XTD products are the best we make thanks to a spare-no-expense mindset to create game-changing technology,” said Justin Honea, Senior Director of Research and Development. “We ignored convention, built products with premium materials and pushed the limits to deliver jaw-dropping ball speed increases off the face for every club in the bag.”

    XTD Driver

    Featuring several industry firsts, the XTD Driver is made like no other. Adams redefined the driver manufacturing process by testing each head four times to ensure the hottest permissible face within USGA rules and the tightest tolerance in golf. Today’s current competitive standard is measuring only a small percentage of the total production.

    In addition, XTD is the only driver to feature Cut-Thru Slot technology, the latest advancement to Adams’ patented Velocity Slot Technology. These provide unmatched face flexion and expand the sweet spot to promote maximum ball speed on off-center and on-center shots. True to Adams’ heralded aerodynamic shaping, there are neither engravings nor sharp edges to slow the club during its swing.

    “We’re touting that it’s the hottest face in golf by using the strictest manufacturing tolerances,” said Honea. “Every feature we’ve built into the XTD family is distinctive, and we’ve merged them all together into the ultimate driver.”

    XTD Hybrid Ti photo XTDHybrid_ti20_zpsd030c728.jpg

    Titanium Fairway Woods and Hybrids

    Adams’ heralded R&D team defied convention when creating the XTD Ti fairway woods and hybrids. Engineers combined titanium brazing with Cut-Thru Slot technology, and developed progressive face thickness to re-distribute mass and provide 29 percent more face speed on off-center hits**.

    XTD flaunts an optimally-low CG, making it extremely easy to get the ball airborne for more consistent and controllable performance.

    “We’ve consistently led the way in hybrid innovation and these have taken it to an entirely new level,” added Honea. “We made sure XTD included every element to give golfers all they need when facing a long approach or looking to advance the ball toward the hole.”

    XTD Forged GSL photo XTD_frgdGSL_zps74287a4b.jpg

    Forged Irons with Slots

    Unlike traditional forged irons, XTD is a multi-piece forging that boasts the category’s first-ever Cut-Thru Slot technology. A floating face and hollow design delivers a consistently faster face, adding forgiveness throughout. Tungsten weights in the sole optimize CG location.

    “We created a forged iron that’s caught up to our legendary hybrid technology, breaking the mold of what’s been around for 80 years,” said Honea. “Most blades sacrifice distance for workability but we’re giving extra yards AND improvement on off-center shots!”

    The full eight-piece set includes a 3- and 4- DHy, currently the top hybrid model on the PGA Tour. It gives the extra distance and forgiveness of a hybrid with the shot-shaping control of a long iron. A unique bulge-and-roll face technology improves shot dispersion.

    Availability

    XTD drivers ship to pro shops and specialty golf retailers on December 15, 2013 with an MSRP of $399.99. The Ti fairway woods and hybrids will be available for purchase on November 15, each with an MSRP of $299.99 per club. All include a Matrix Red Tie shaft and Iomic Black Armor Sticky Evolution grip.

    Shipping on December 1, XTD forged irons include KBS C-Taper steel shafts for an MSRP of $1,099.99 or Aldila RIP Tour 115g graphite shafts with an MSRP of $1,199.99.

    #1 Hybrids on Tour claim based on 2013 usage on the PGA, Champions, and Web.com Tours, as reported by the Darrell Survey Co.

    The Adams XTD Driver conforms with USGA rules, including those relating to clubhead spring effect. “Hottest Face in Golf” claim is based on comparative testing against the Top 10 Unit and Dollar Share drivers based on 2013 Golf Datatech On & Off Course Retail Market Report.

     photo baffler_hybrid_combo_hero_8bit_zpsf05d3988.jpg

The new Baffler® XL Fairways and Hybrids feature a new, high MOI Tungsten Perimeter design with oversized rails to make the most forgiving and easiest to hit Bafflers COBRA has ever created.

    “The Baffler XL Fairways and Hybrids were designed with the specific intent to make golf easier,” commented Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development. “We achieved that through the combination of a high MOI clubhead, low CG, pronounced rails and increased Tungsten in the perimeter. All of these technologies work together to increase ball speed, lower spin, improve confidence at address and ultimately make the ball go farther and make golf easier and more enjoyable.”

    The Baffler XL Fairways and Hybrids have a thin, high strength steel face with more flex to produce greater ball speed. A super low CG due to 30% more Tungsten than the Baffler T-Rail®+ and a shallower face provides higher, longer ball flight with less spin.

    “We increased the effective face area, lowered the CG and designed our largest driver face ever to deliver an easy to hit driver,” commented Tom Preece, Vice President of Research & Development. “The Baffler XL Driver is an easy to hit driver packed with technology to hit it far and straight.”

    The Baffler XL Driver has a 5,000 sq. mm. face (17% larger than the AMP CELLTM Offset Driver) in addition to a 21% increase in effective face area. More of the face is located above the low CG for optimized spin, consistent launch conditions and more distance to make golfers more effective with their driver. The larger face creates an enhanced trampoline effect, giving the golfer more consistency with hits across the face and inspiring more confidence on the tee.

    A new high MOI sole combined with an offset design makes the Baffler XL easier to hit straight by correcting slices, increasing stability and maintaining distance on off-center hits.

    The Baffler XL Driver is named for the 40th anniversary of the Baffler and features a sophisticated Legion Blue cosmetic that is found throughout the new Baffler XL product line including the Baffler XL Fairways, Hybrids, Combo Set and Irons.

    COBRA’S NEW BAFFLER® XL COMBO SET DELIVERS EASY DISTANCE

     photo Baffler_Irons_7i_Hero_zps2010eb9c.jpg

    CARLSBAD, CA (OCTOBER 15, 2013) – COBRA Golf is continuing to make golf easier. Easy to hit it far, easy to hit it straight and, most importantly, easy to enjoy the game. The new Baffler® XL Irons feature an oversized face with moderate offset design that yields a forgiving, draw-biased ball flight. The slightly lower profile shape for low CG, delivers easy up off of any lie. The Combo Set features the easy to hit irons as well as the high MOI designed Baffler XL Hybrids for higher, longer ball flight which makes long approach shots easy.

    “The Baffler XL Combo Set is going to be extremely popular among game improvement seeking players,” commented Jose Miraflor, Director of Product Marketing. “The technology and design work that went into the Baffler XL Combo Set truly delivers a maximum game improving set that will make it easier to hit the ball, easier to hit the ball far and easier to hit the ball straight.”

    Using inspiration from the original Baffler (first launched more than 40 years ago) the Baffler XL Combo Set features a wide railed sole with more pronounced rails and a beveled leading edge. These design elements make them easy to hit from any lie.

    The oversized and traditionally shaped design gives golfers confidence at address while providing extreme forgiveness, lower CG and higher launch. The progressive offset design gives golfers easy slice correction even into the longer irons. A deep undercut delivers a large free floating face that generates ball speed for longer explosive shots. The undercutting technique allowed engineers to create a high MOI design for consistency.

  • NEW LYNX GOLF JUNIOR CLUBS GROW WITH THE GOLFER

    Lynx Junior Clubs photo lynxjuniorclubs_zpsf0675878.jpg

    Lynx Golf, the family-owned UK golf brand, has launched a new full range of junior clubs to suit younger golfers aged 7-16.

    Rather than producing standard boxed-sets, Lynx has designed a capsule collection of separate irons, hybrids, fairway woods and a driver in three age groups which allows juniors to build the perfect set of clubs to match their own requirements.

    Available in ages 7-11, 11-14 and 14-16, colour-coded head weights and shaft flexes vary between age groups, enabling the junior golfer to continue to play Lynx while experiencing the same consistency of quality and feel as they grow.

    The Lynx Junior Irons (5-SW) have a progressive offset throughout the set and are specifically weighted for each age group to give maximum forgiveness.  With a deep cavity back and perimeter weighting, stainless steel heads and graphite shafts, the irons are easy to hit and forgiving and come with a £199 RRP.

    A Lynx Junior Hybrid in a 4 loft can be added for £49, while there is a choice of a 3- or 5-wood also keenly priced at just £49.

    The set can be completed with the Lynx Junior Driver (RRP £99) which has 13°loft to help younger players get the ball airborne and straight.

    The fully forged titanium head is designed with low CoG and high MOI to make it very easy to hit, while there are variable flex shafts for different age groups and junior sized grips for smaller hands.  The heads are also colour coded with headcovers.

    Said Stephanie Zinser, of Lynx Golf: “Lynx’s long-term commitment to the golfing marketplace cannot be questioned and we are focusing our attention on creating clubs that offer the highest quality and performance for all ages and levels of ability.

    “The love of golf starts in youth and this is what has driven our desire to make Lynx available to juniors as well.

    “The Lynx family of products is growing and our intention to innovate and create fresh, original designs feeds through into everything we do. The Cat is not just back – he’s leading the pack now.”

    Lynx Golf continues to establish itself as the most forward-thinking and exciting equipment brand in Europe and is dedicated to supporting ‘green grass’ Pro shop business, with more than 400 accounts in the UK.

    The company are pioneers of the hottest technology development in the market with its Boom Boom 2 collection of adult clubs.

    Of the 28.5% of golfers who travelled to Spain to play golf, 12.7% went to the Costa del Sol, 3.9% went to the Costa Brava region, 3.2% visited the Canary Islands and 8.7% went to other areas.

    The research also revealed the popularity of other destinations with 17% visiting Portugal, 16.1% travelling to Great Britain & Ireland, 7.5% booking trips to Turkey, 7.1% visiting France and 6.9% booking long-haul golf trips to the USA.

    The in-depth research also highlighted:

    – The average duration for a Spanish golf trip is seven nights
    – Golf visitors to Spain predominantly stay in four and five-star accommodation
    – Visiting golfers spend between €170 (British golfers) to €230 (Scandinavians) per day
    – Golfers arrange between five and six rounds of golf during each Spanish holiday
    – During the course of a week’s holiday, golfers play up to four different Spanish courses.

    The Spanish study also revealed that a golfer’s nationality impacts on their choice of region they are likely to visit, with British and Scandinavian golfers preferring the Costa del Sol; French golfers more likely to visit Costa Brava; and German golfers travelling to all regions, including the Canary Islands.

    Peter Grimster, IGTM Exhibition Manager, said: “This latest study proves that Spain remains at the heart of the European golf tourism industry and illustrates why thousands of golfers still put its golfing regions at the top of their wish list.”

    Some of the key contributing factors that put Spain ahead of its rivals was the standard and range of the country’s golf courses, consistent levels of high quality accommodation and the favourable year-round climate.

    Peter added: “As Spain is the host country for this year’s IGTM we will, of course, be welcoming a host of representatives from across the country, including 100 resorts, clubs and tourist boards, showcasing the country’s finest golf spots including host destination Catalonia, as well as Andalucía and the Balearic and Canary Islands.”

    As host to IGTM 2013, the Catalan region of Costa Daurada is rapidly growing its reputation as a golf destination. Three years ago, less than 2% of total rounds played on the Costa Daurada were by international golfers. Today, that ratio has increased to 30% and continues to grow.

    A summary of the report, with some additional findings, will be presented at IGTM, the premier global event for golf tourism, taking place at the PortAventura Convention Centre, Costa Daurada, Catalonia, Spain, November 11-14, 2013.
