FlightScope® Featured in Tour Tempo VIP Golf Schools

3 October 2008
ORLANDO, Fla. (October 3, 2008) FlightScope®, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and launch monitor and the world's first-ever 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf, was featured in Tour Tempo VIP Golf Schools this year, held at Alvamar Golf Course in Lawrence, Kan., monthly from April through October. The schools, which were begun at Alvamar in 2004, attract golfers of every playing ability from the U.S. and abroad, including men, women and juniors. During instruction, FlightScope was used to measure all aspects of the club and ball, and to work with students on increasing speed with Tour Tempo patented training aids. The teaching method is based on the book Tour Tempo, written by John Novosel Sr. and Sports Illustrated writer John Garrity. Tour Tempo has begun the process of certifying golf instructors worldwide, who will be introduced to FlightScope as they earn certification.

FlightScope is being used at an increasing number of golf schools and academies around the world, and we are pleased that Tour Tempo VIP Golf Schools are now among them, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope, based in Orlando, Fla. The experience of both instructors and students is enriched as a result of the extensive, precise data FlightScope provides.

Tour Tempo VIP Schools are conducted by John Novosel Sr. and John Novosel Jr., who serves as Director of Instruction/Certification for Tour Tempo, as Fitness Instructor at Alvamar and as FlightScope territory representative for Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. He is a co-creator of the Tour Tempo Training System and has co-invented four golf swing trainers, with others patent pending. He has worked and consulted with golfers of all abilities, including PGA and LPGA Tour players and Professional Long Drivers. He has presented the Tour Tempo concepts in the U.S. and to the PGA of Sweden. He is a professional long driver, creating clubhead speeds over 140 mph and ball speeds up to 200 mph.

FlightScope, designated the Official 3D Doppler Tracking Radar of the 2008 PGA Fall Expo recently held in Las Vegas, is a feature-rich device which is far more than just a golf launch monitor. It is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. Academies, golf equipment manufacturers, clubfitters, retailers, and green-grass and practice facilities have embraced FlightScope's advanced technology. FlightScope was awarded the GolfTest USA Seal of Excellence this year for superior quality, value and performance.

FlightScope first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to its use at high-profile teaching academies and clubfitting venues worldwide, FlightScope is utilized for personal practice by tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement. It is known for its ease of use as well as the precision and accuracy of its technology. FlightScope employs phased array and ballistic tracking technology to record accurately the ball trajectory and to provide actual launch data. The characteristic distinguishing FlightScope from existing launch monitor technology is that FlightScope records the trajectory accurately in the precise environment in which the ball travels, thereby providing actual rather than implied data. The resultant ability of golfers, clubfitters and instructors to see the actual ball trajectory at various angles allows them to make precise adjustments for enhanced performance.

EDH, maker of FlightScope, is a product development company founded in 1989 by Henri Johnson, inventor and electronic engineer. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
