In The Mail: Optishot 2 Golf Simulator

Optishot 2 Golf Simulator

I recently received an Optishot 2 Golf Simulator for review. I’m particularly glad to test it because Optishot is a Michigan company, based in Traverse City.

The base unit has sixteen high-speed 48MHz infrared sensors which are connected via a usb cable to your computer. Using the sensors, the software tracks your clubs before, during and after contact and gives instant feedback on:

 

  • Club head speed +/-2.0 MPH
  • Face angle +/-1.5
  • Swing path +/-1.9
  • Distance traveled
  • Face contact
  • Swing tempo
  • Shot shape

 

Optishot can be used in either practice or playing mode.

Practice Mode

  • Turn any OptiShot Course into your own practice range
  • OptiShot PinPoint Practice tracks and records your progress
  • Six different target greens improves your shot accuracy
  • Precision rings & accuracy grid get you closer to the pin
  • Driving-accuracy mode fosters straight fairway shots
  • Set up the same shot over and over or follow the ball to the hole
  • Visual feedback of each shot, includes full session data display

Play Mode

  • Choose from an exclusive library of world-class OptiShot Courses
  • Experience a fully-immersive and realistic playing experience
  • All swing data tracked and stored for analysis
  • Play full rounds with up to four players
  • Par-3 tees included for all courses

I’ll have a full review later this fall. One problem that I’m going to have with it is finding an indoor spot to practice. It needs at least an eight-and-a-half foot ceiling, and probably more. My house, built in 1967, doesn’t have any space like that available.
