Winston-Salem, NC, December 17, 2015 – SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, today announced that SkyTrak has been named the top consumer technology in the 2015 MyGolfSpy Editor’s Choice Awards.
SkyTrak is the world’s first affordable professional-grade personal launch monitor and golf simulator.
In selecting SkyTrak, MyGolfSpy, which attracts over a half a million unique visitors each month, stated, “$2000 is admittedly a high price for what we’re calling consumer tech, but doesn’t a fully-featured and reliable launch monitor for thousands, and in some cases tens of thousands, of dollars less than any reputable competitor’s products deserve our full attention?”
“Given its potential to drive down prices, and make launch monitors more accessible to the average golfer, we say hell yes it does.”
“SkyTrak delivers commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment at a price far below comparable alternatives, and provides an accurate and realistic in-home golf experience that both entertains and makes you a better golfer,” said Richard Edmonson, SkyGolf CEO. “We are pleased that MyGolfSpy recognizes that SkyTrak is on the leading edge in creating what the industry now expects from this technology at this price point.”
This is the second award SkyTrak has received from MyGolfSpy. Earlier in the year, SkyTrak received the Best Overall ranking in the MyGolfSpy 2015 Personal Launch Monitor Buyers Guide.
The SkyTrak Launch Monitor is a complete Practice, Play and Entertainment System for golf at home. SkyTrak accurately captures thousands of data points from a golfer hitting balls with their own clubs into a net to simulate practice and play as if you were on the course or practice tee. SkyTrak recently completed the integration of WGT Golf, so now golfers can experience and test their skills on some of the world’s most famous 18-hole courses with their own clubs at their own pace.
The WGT Golf app allows its over 14 million golfers worldwide playing WGT Golf to play the game with their own clubs and balls for the first time on iconic courses such as Kiawah Ocean Course, Bandon Dunes, Wolf Creek and many others. The WGT Golf integration includes two game modes for time and practice flexibility. The Closest-to-the-Hole game challenges golfers with nine different approach shots that are scored in proximity to the pin on WGT’s famous courses. Or, golfers can opt for Full Stroke Play on courses around the world with the ability to select different tee boxes, course conditions, green speeds and wind conditions. Players will also have the ability to enter tournaments, challenge other golfers, improve their games and work their way up the leaderboard.
