HD Golf Simulator tempts new recruits to get in the swing

Hitting the greens in the UAE has been growing in popularity as events such as the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and the Omega Dubai Desert Classic usher in major stars such as Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer.

Travis Bundus wants to build on this rising interest by helping more women and children get their start in the game, thanks to technology that allows a golfer to be in control of their own lesson, reducing some of the cost and time needed to learn the sport.

He launched a high-tech indoor training centre at Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Sports City in November in the capital. Performance Golf UAE uses a system developed by HD Golf and similar to what airlines use to teach future pilots.

“The use of a golf simulator is the ultimate in golf innovation,” Mr Bundus says. “Not only does an indoor facility solve an issue with the extreme climate, it also addresses a more sustainable method to enjoying golf.”

He says that the technology behind the machine will overcome some of the limitations that have hampered the success of simulator golf in the past.

Performance Golf’s simulator uses high-speed digital imagery to break down a golf swing into eight separate parts and identify faults that a golfer can then focus on, allowing for quicker improvement.

“There is no system in the world with such in-depth analysis,” Mr Bundus says.

Comprehensive and Accurate Measurement

HD measures ALL critical object & club parameters to analyze every shot. At minimum 4 cameras work together during the player action sequence. They analyze club head speed, launch angle, swing path, object contact (heel/toe), club face (open/closed) and smash factor.

These comprehensive measurements are critical, but the accuracy of these measurements is equally important. HD Simulators measure with supreme accuracy. For example, we measure club face angle contact to within 1/10th of 1 degree and ball spin to +/- 100 RPM.

Simulator Quality

HD Golf Simulators™ redefined the Gold Standard in build-quality and integrated technology. Quality in a refined packaged is immediately obvious from first swing and makes your ownership experience a true pleasure. Our steadfast commitment to the ‘exceptional’ combined with minimal operating and maintenance costs ensures unparalleled reliability for years.

HD Golf™ has extensive engineering capabilities extending through our hardware, software and mechanical design. We design & build all critical system components in-house and ensure seamless system integration. Most competitors cobble together third party hardware and software to make their simulators – resulting in compromised reliability & system incompatibilities.

We are committed to ‘only using’ top quality professional-grade components such as: High Performance, ‘Intelligent’ Cameras, Professional Engineering Workstations, Linux Operating Systems, Multi-Element Screens and Spring-Set Nylon Turf. Collectively, our systems deliver unrivalled quality, superior performance and exceptional reliability.

Competitors typically use lower cost, inferior components, such as: Home PC’s to run their simulators, which tend to suffer from instability and frequent required updates. They also use polypropylene turf, single element-screens with high elasticity-rebound and reduced longevity. Both screens & turf last a half-life when compared to our in-house designed screens & turf. Other areas of compromise extend to their third party cameras which capture your swing, but don’t form a complete alliance with the rest of the system.

Player Improvement

HD Golf™ was the first to develop a completely integrated Professional Golf Studio, ensuring Teaching Professionals, Clubfitters and Individuals have the best tools available for game-improvement.

Video Swing Analysis, 3D Motion Analysis, and Weight Transfer / Balance Analysis are all designed with one purpose: make you a better golfer.

In reality, a golf swing happens very quickly, and can be difficult to improve, especially when you don’t have analytics and recording technology to visualize the swing. Subtle adjustments can result in dramatic improvements – it’s critical you understand your individual swing dynamics. You don’t need to be computer savvy to use the Golf Studio. The integrated Golf Studio operates from a single touch screen, and is simple to use.

Jim McLean’s 8 Step Swing, which incorporates the swings of Ernie Els, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods, is an additional feature many HD Golfers decide to add to their simulators. Step by step, a golfer is able to perfect every element of their swing. The simulator records and analyzes a golfer’s swing in real time. When the system detects that the golfer’s position and swing are out of the “corridor of success” or have committed a “death move”, the simulator will automatically alert the golfer and present virtual coaching from Jim McLean.
