PhiNetworks announced a collaboration with sports entertainment leader Topgolf to introduce Phigolf WGT Edition. This collaboration combines World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf’s photorealistic graphics and life-like golf simulation with Phigolf’s ability to capture and analyze the physical motion of playing golf. Phigolf WGT Edition takes the immersive game experience of WGT to the next level, making some of the most iconic courses in the world available for players to experience with their own golf swing – including Bandon Dunes, Pinehurst No. 2 and Wolf Creek. Picked by Golf Digest to be one of the coolest products at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show, this state-of-the-art, 9-axis club sensor attaches to any real golf club or to the compact, smart Phigolf swing stick and allows users to play virtual golf in their home, office, hotel room or wherever they are
Young Hun Kim, CEO of PhiNetworks, is excited to deliver this groundbreaking technology to the WGT game platform stating, “We know golfers will love this, and being able to use their own swing will add to the sensation that they’re really playing on the greatest courses on the planet.” Mr. Kim adds, “The Phigolf integration with WGT is what we think many users have been looking for in terms of accessibility, not just in price but in usage. For a simulator system, it’s very compact and portable, so you can play it almost anywhere.”
WGT by Topgolf has been downloaded, played and loved by more than 20 million virtual golfers across the globe. Integrating WGT with the Phigolf sensor technology provides an innovative and accessible simulator experience, allowing golfers and non-golfers alike to play anywhere with anyone. Casting the mobile display to a big screen makes the game experience even more immersive, especially when playing with friends. Second Chance Ltd. will be the global distributor for Phigolf WGT Edition and will partner with leading global retailers to ensure this innovative golf game simulator is available to players across the globe.
Appealing to players who want to experience simulated golf, this virtual golf game will become a platform for growing the game of golf as well as developing new fans along the way.
