PGA Tour Professional Jerry Kelly has selected High Definition Golf™ for year round training, practice and equipment testing in his home in Wisconsin.

Interactive Sports Technologies™, the makers of High Definition Golf™ simulators, is pleased to announce that PGA Tour Professional Jerry Kelly has selected HD Golf™ for year round training, practice and equipment testing in his home in Wisconsin. Kelly won the 2009 Zurich Classic of New Orleans and recently finished in third place at an exciting Honda Classic at PGA National in Florida.

“The High Definition Golf simulator is an amazing piece of leading edge technology. It allows me to train at home with my coach in a very realistic golfing environment and provides me with detailed feedback after every swing,” says Kelly. “The simulator makes a full series of highly accurate measurements, and I can use it to make adjustments to my game and test new equipment with the confidence of knowing of what works in the simulator will also work on the real golf course as well, which is really a tribute to the development team at HDG. And, it looks and plays like real golf, which is has been a real benefit during our long stretches of bad weather here in Wisconsin. I can even practice on PGA National before I play the Honda Classic,” Kelly added.

High Definition Golf™ has developed a totally integrated professional golf instruction studio which is easy-to-use, completely modular in design and includes diagnostic tools for detailed shot analysis, video swing analysis, swing dynamics and weight transfer/balance analysis. These professional-grade tools operate seamlessly from a single computer system, providing comprehensive data collection and various simultaneous display options. The system also generates a variety of performance reports that are customizable and can be uploaded to “Player Lockers” on the web that the student can use to access and review lessons, statistics, video swing files and club fitting information, as well as sign up for tournaments and league play.

“Jerry spent many hours testing and putting the simulator through its paces during visits to Interactive Sports. He reviewed his swing using our video swing analysis module, was in impressed with the club shaft measurements gathered by our swing dynamics system and even played a round on Pebble Beach® with some of the HD Golf staff,” said President & CEO Todd Richardson. During his visit, Jerry also spent time consulting with our engineering teams, providing some valuable feedback from his perspective as a veteran PGA Tour player. The recommendations he shared, and customers like him, help make the product better and drives innovation,” added Richardson.

High Definition Golf™ pioneered computer vision technology for the golf simulator industry, and their systems make more measurements more accurately than any other simulator currently on the market. These include distance (carry and roll), ball speed, club-head speed, efficiency (“smash factor”), launch angle, swing-path (outside/in, inside/out), club head angle at impact, ball position (re: club-head at impact) and the very important ball spin and spin axis. The simulator will also measure angle of attack, club head acceleration, position of maximum club head speed, club head speed at impact and swing tempo. HD Golf™ is also the only simulator with the unique capability to dynamically measure shaft flex and load factor, allowing club fitters to make precise shaft recommendations.
