BRIGHTON, Mich., March 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Golf returns to Michigan in a big way, and Michigan-based golf simulator brand OptiShot Golf is along for the excitement. Officials at OptiShot announced, Thursday, that they had been selected as the "Official Golf Simulator" of the return of the PGA Tour to the state as an official partner of the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
The Rocket Mortgage Classic, which begins June 25 and concludes June 30, offers a glimpse at 156 of the world's top professional golfers competing over four days, excellent local cuisine, renowned entertainment, and entertainment behind and outside the ropes. Hosted at the Detroit Golf Club, tickets go on sale 3-13 (three months and 13 days before the even of the first round of the tournament). If this has you seeing a familiar area code, you'd be right. Much of the event celebrates the rich tradition and unique culture of the region.
Through a multi-month agreement, OptiShot Golf will install its latest technology with partner, Quicken Loans, at events throughout the state, as well as provide its full line of technologies at the main event. Guests at these events will have the opportunity to utilize some of the most advanced (and affordable) simulator technology available to help improve their golf skills and enjoyment of the game.
"The Rocket Mortgage Classic wanted to find a technology partner for the event that can provide a variety of products to golf's unique customer base," said Kevin Johnston, President, and COO of OptiShot Golf. "OptiShot's simulators are designed so that anyone from a PGA Professional to a weekend scrambler can gain enhanced insight into their golf swing. We believe that by offering a full line-up of quality products, OptiShot has an opportunity to bring awareness to not only great products but an incredible state that we call home."
Based in Brighton, Michigan, OptiShot Golf delivers performance-driven, game-changing analysis solutions featuring its trio-tracking and three-camera technology that is both accurate and affordable. The company, which was known for its legacy swing pad has advanced into three, cutting-edge club and ball-flight analysis solutions including BallFlight and Vision.
"We are thrilled to be a part of the return of golf to Michigan," said Jennifer Compton, Director of Marketing, OptiShot Golf. "As a Michigan-based company, we believe our state boasts some of the finest golf in the country – on the greens and on our simulator solutions. Our goal is not only to provide high quality, and accessible solutions to the best players of the game but also to the every-day golfer who is looking to lower their scores and advance their knowledge of the sport."
