GREENSBORO, N.C. – The SkyTrak™ Personal Launch Monitor returns to next week’s Wyndham Championship, as does the SkyTrak™ hole-in-one challenge, the tournament announced today. Tournament week at the Wyndham begins Monday at Sedgefield Country Club.
The SkyTrak™ hole-in-one challenge at the Wyndham Championship will be located in the SkyTrak expo on the tournament’s Expo Row on Forsyth Drive near Sedgefield’s main putting green. Tournament patrons will have the opportunity to compete for prizes; one weekly winner will receive a SkyTrack Personal Launch Monitor with the “Play and Improve” software package.
Daily winners will receive Taylor Made golf equipment, golf balls or Wyndham Championship apparel from Ralph Lauren. The SkyTrak hole-in-one challenge begins Tuesday of tournament week and will feature a digital scoreboard, keeping track of the daily and weekly competitions.
“We’re proud to support our local PGA TOUR event and are excited to share SkyTrak with the Wyndham Championship patrons,” said Andy Allen, SportTrak Managing Director of Golf.
SkyTrak™, produced by SportTrak LLC in Winston-Salem, N.C., is the first personal launch monitor of its kind; SkyTrak is a realistic, real-time golf practice and play system which connects wirelessly to your mobile device or PC, then accurately captures and displays launch data and ball flight as soon as the ball is hit. The system provides instant feedback as well as the flexibility and freedom to practice and play virtually in different environments.
SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak is a revolutionary development in launch monitor technology, offering a complete practice, play and entertainment system for golf at home. It delivers commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment at a price far below alternatives. Golfers can also experience and test their skills on some of the world’s most famous 18-hole courses with their own clubs at their own pace through integrations with several golf simulators including WGT Golf, Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf, The Golf Club Game, TruGolf and now Creative Golf 3D.
While entertaining, SkyTrak is a serious tool that accurately reflects the golfer’s actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement without leaving home. SkyTrak also offers various challenges for engaging practice such as Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Bag Mapping. SkyTrak is easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the course.
