Dancin’ Dogg Golf Debuts Next Generation Software for OptiShot Infrared Simulator

User Experience Enhanced by New Design, Navigation, Game Types, Practice Features, Putting Modes, Core Course, More

(TRAVERSE CITY, MI) – Dancin’ Dogg Golf – maker of the award-winning OptiShot Infrared Simulator, the ultimate in-home virtual golf system – announces the launch of its next generation software package, highlighted by a completely redesigned user interface and enhanced graphics for an even more true-to-life experience.

Further expanding the horizons of affordable, accurate, in-home golf simulation, this latest system evolution includes a broad range of features that promote skills development. Standard with all new purchases and available via free, automatic download for current OptiShot users, it includes:
* Pin-Point Practice Range: Improve ball control with accuracy lines, precision rings, shot patterning and progress tracking
* Course Physics: Set fairway and green speeds or select shot difficulty in light rough, rough and bunkers
* Game Types: Choose from alternate shot, match play, stroke play, best ball, better ball, Stableford and skins
* Game Length: Play front nine, back nine, 18 holes or select any hole to create a custom game
* Warwick Hills: Replication of the PGA Tour’s Buick Open host site added to Core Course library
* Languages: French-Canadian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese

A sleek new design, easier-to-read data, improved navigation, variety of putting modes, custom display options and the ability to preview premium courses have also been added to the system. These combine to further distinguish OptiShot (MSRP: $399.95) from competing in-home simulators that can cost more than $50,000.

“It’s perfect for us to add so many exciting new features just as the weather turns cold and the holiday shopping season begins,” says Brandon Theophilus, CEO of Dancin’ Dogg Golf. “Our team of in-house developers has really taken things to the next level, ensuring golfers of all abilities can play more often, have more fun and improve their skills without leaving home.”

OptiShot connects with Windows computers via a plug-and-play interface and requires only 8-½ feet of swing space. With their own clubs, up to four players per round can compete by hitting real balls, foam balls (provided) or no ball at all. Infrared sensors on a durable swing pad precisely record club-head speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight. In addition to Core courses that come with the system, OptiShot users can practice on a realistic driving range, compete using the par-3 option or purchase premium course replicas of world famous layouts.
