Play the 141st British Open Championship at Fylde Links this week with the OptiShot Simulator swing analysis. The authentic classic links golf course replica includes 200 Bunkers and Wind variables but not the cold, just like the Pro’s such as Tiger Woods face playing at Lytham & St. Annes, Lancashire, England. This will be the 11th time the Open Championship has been played at Lytham. Imagine being able to play 18 holes of the 2012 Open Championship or any of the World’s best courses with your own clubs, anywhere you want, in about 2 hours or less.

The sports tech company who invented the OptiShot in 2005 is Dancin’ Dogg Golf (3DD) http://www.dancindogg.com/. 3DD has 20 golf course replications in their Library of Courses. A new Sim is created for each upcoming Major venue. The last Major OptiShot Sim created was the U.S. Open, hosted by the Olympic Club at the Golden Gate Club course in San Francisco. Next up will be the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, followed by the Ryder Cup being played at Medinah, Chicago. Updates are free for current users.
OptiShot has developed proprietary technology that is at the core of their golf Sim accuracy. The ‘Shot Tracer’ is patent pending and uses 16 infrared sensors built into an artificial turf Infrared Optical Swing Pad that shoots 10,000 lights pulses per second which enables it to reconfigure your swing and path. Crystal clear graphics help give you the ability to see exactly what your swing entails.
You will be able to visually track the ball flight off a swing, or use the putt grid, to help improve your game. Hit balls into a sheet, impact screen or net that you set up indoors. Use your living room, garage, office or a dedicated Simulation room. Try playing or practicing after work, late night or on the weekends, whatever time works with your schedule.
Simply connect OptiShot to a computer, HD TV or projection screen, and you are ready to begin helping to improve your swing mechanics with the Live Feedback. Use the overhead look or course fly over to help visualize your next shots.
