Sometimes when you can’t find what you are looking for, the only solution is to make it yourself. That’s exactly what British software designer Gavin Hamer has done in creating a versatile, comprehensive suite of FlightScope-compatible golf games where ‘practice meets play’ for all ages.
The inspiration for Awesome Golf, which will be available to see for the very first time at the 2020 PGA Merchandise Show, was Hamer’s golf-crazy son. When Hamer tried to buy a simulator solution to play at home, he quickly realised that there was nothing on the market which catered for all ages and was also fun to play.
After a research trip to the PGA Show in 2019, Hamer recruited Sony PlayStation sports game designer Ben Fawcett and the pair set about creating the software that has become Awesome Golf. The result is a versatile, comprehensive and fun golf experience that caters for data-hungry serious golfers, alongside those who just want to hit balls and play games.
Hamer and his team have created a product that can be used by golfers at driving ranges, on home simulators, and as a coaching tool for PGA Professionals. At The PGA Show, the software will be available for immediate purchase for use on any current FlightScope products in a bundle with the brand new FlightScope Mevo+ or as lease-to-own driving range solution, complete with state-of-the-art touchscreen computers.
Whether practicing shot shaping, with unbeatable ball and club data, playing one of the videogame-style Virtual Golf Courses with friends or going head-to-head blowing up boats with a six-year-old, Awesome Golf promises to transform experiences for every type of golfer and golf facility.
Hamer explains: “Having seen the disappointment on my son’s face when he couldn’t use the technology on the market, we were determined to make a golf game that could be enjoyed by everyone. After looking at the market it was clear that FlightScope’s technology was the best fit for us, as it offers unbeatable accuracy for all kinds of shots. This means we can offer comprehensive data for serious golfers, competitive challenges and of course short shot skills games that kids and beginners can play, making it ideal for coaching and for facility owners looking for a complete range solution.”
There will be PGA Show specials available for anyone looking to invest in this FlightScope software and for facilities and PGA Professionals looking for the most cost-effective lease to own solution to come to market.
