OptiShot makes every season, golf season

WASHINGTON, March 11, 2013 — Tiger Woods won again, The Golf Boys made their second music video and the weather is slowly getting warmer. Golf is back. For those eager to get an early start on their game, especially those in colder climates, OptiShot is quickly becoming the golf simulator of choice. 

Golf simualtors aren’t new, but Dancin’ Dogg Golf – maker of the award-winning OptiShot Infrared Simulator – has found a way to create a life-like experience for less money and with less hassle.

A sleek new design, easier-to-read data, improved navigation, variety of putting modes, custom display options and the ability to preview premium courses have also been added to the system. These combine to further distinguish OptiShot (MSRP: $399.95) from competing in-home simulators that can cost more than $50,000.

The concept is simple. Plug it in to your Windows computer, use your own clubs, hit real balls if you would like and get to playing. 16 infrared sensors map your swing and path to the ball. 

It’s great for both advanced golfers and people who have hit multiple houses, like myself. I had a chance to test it in December and it was very accurate, my drives going everywhere but the fairway. With the feedback it provides, I was able to start correcting my swing and started improving. 

With a low price-point, great reviews and an easy plug-and-play interface Dancin’ Dogg has created a product for every golfer. 

Based in Traverse City, MI, Dancin’ Dogg Golf was founded in 2005 and specializes in developing innovative technologies. Twice named to the prestigious Inc. 500 list as one of America’s fastest-growing entrepreneurial companies, it has also been honored with the SCOREGolf Research & Development Award, named to the “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” list and received a “Flyover 50 Award” as one of the Midwest’s fastest-growing companies.
