Using incredible and patented technology, HD Golf mapped & recreated Dave Pelz’ Backyard in Austin, Texas. More private golf instructionary than backyard, Dave’s home is known by PGA Tour Pros and fans as the World’s Best Short Game Destination. Dave’s Bacykayrd collection of green complexes, fairways and tee boxes were inspired by famous holes at TPC, Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. The Backyard itself integrate these designs while presenting every possible shot-scenario golfers face within 100 yards…the distance causing more than 60% of missed shots and 80% of strokes lost to par. Called “The World’s Best Backyard” by The Wall Street Journal, Dave frequently works with PGA Tour Pros like Phil Mickelson and Patrick Reed on location. Last year, HD successfully launched The Dave Pelz Backyard Experience. Now, Dave Pelz and HD Golf built on its success to launch The Dave Pelz Backyard Challenge.
The Dave Pelz Wedge Challenge is a 9- hole, 36-shot masterpiece of golf engineering and ingenious scoring (show map inset), featuring narration by Dave Pelz and its ONLY for HD Simulators.
Golfers (1-4 players) arrive on each tee to hit successive shots at 3,4, or 5 tee positions on each hole. Each shot is evaluated in realtime by the Shot Value Scoring System. This system scores the overall quality of each shot and measures how well it was executed (show scoring inset). Your total hole score is displayed according to the point value below. The object is to have the lowest score….and a lot of fun!
