2 July 2009
ORLANDO, Fla. (October 26, 2009) FlightScope® has been named the Official Golf Launch Monitor System of the Ontario PGA. FlightScope will exhibit its state-of-the-art technology Oct. 28-29 at the Ontario PGA 2009 Golf Merchandise Show, which is organized in partnership with the Ontario PGA.

We are pleased to have the opportunity to share our exciting technology with attendees at the Ontario PGA Golf Merchandise Show, says Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope, whose worldwide sales and marketing division is headquartered in Orlando, Fla. We will display our new wireless model, FlightScope Prime®, a revolutionary technological advancement in the field.

FlightScope Prime, launched at the PGA Fall Expo in Las Vegas in September, provides FlightScope's advanced technology in a battery-operated wireless model for instructors and club fitters who prefer this exciting new format. Battery operated and totally portable with Bluetooth connectivity, FlightScope Prime represents a brand-new technology solution while using FlightScope's renowned system of real-time tracking and precise measurements.

It will be a pleasure to exhibit FlightScope's exceptional technology at this event, says Warren Mapi©, FlightScope's director of sales development for Canada. Attendees will have the opportunity to see first-hand the brand-new FlightScope Prime and all its remarkable features.

In addition to its designation as the 2009 Official Golf Launch Monitor of the Ontario PGA, FlightScope is the 2009 Presenting Sponsor of both the Ontario PGA Teacher of the Year award and of the Ontario PGA Nike Fall Scramble. The final three nominees for Ontario 2009 PGA Teacher of the Year Presented by FlightScope are Sean Casey, Clublink Academy; Tina Clahane, Tee's Indoor Golf; and Danny King, Academy Tee at Magna GC. The awards ceremony will take place Oct. 28 at the 2009 Ontario PGA Golf Merchandise Show.

FlightScope introduced the world's first-ever 3D Doppler Tracking golf Radar, a state-of-the-art, portable indoor-outdoor 3D ball-flight and club-tracking device, with capabilities far beyond traditional launch-monitor technology. Compared to golf launch-monitor technology, FlightScope provides accurate, reliable and user-friendly results at an affordable price. FlightScope 3D Doppler Tracking Radar technology is unaffected by sunlight or weather conditions like rain, fog, humidity, air pressure or temperature. FlightScope can measure any golf ball, every time without having to mark the ball with complex lines that smudge. Compared to launch monitors, FlightScope is simple and quick to set up and measures golf shots every time. FlightScope is used for golf instruction, swing analysis, club fitting and club recommendation in golf retail stores around the world. FlightScope also is used as a golf-training aid and for personal practice by tour professionals and amateur golfers alike. FlightScope has integrated with complementary technologies like ball-fitting logic and club-recommendation software.

FlightScope, an award-winning feature-rich device which is far more than just a golf launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. Many instructors, club fitters, golf clubs, academies, collegiate golf programs, green-grass and practice facilities, retailers and golf equipment manufacturers have embraced FlightScope's state-of-the-art technology.

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 club-fitting 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, club fitters 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.
