FlightScope® to be Showcased at Brad Brewer Golf Academy

20 September 2010
Stellenbosch, South Africa (January 26, 2008) FlightScope® by EDH Sport, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and golf launch monitor, is now in use at the Brad Brewer Golf Academy at Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla. The facility will serve as a showcase for FlightScope, the world's first 3D tracking radar for golf.

We are pleased to have the Brad Brewer Golf Academy utilizing and highlighting FlightScope technology, said Henri Johnson, founder, CEO and Chairman of EDH. Academies around the world, as well as clubfitters, retailers, and green-grass and practice facilities, are embracing FlightScope's advanced technology. The Brad Brewer Golf Academy is leading the way in enhancing golfers' instructional and clubfitting experiences through FlightScope.

Brewer is a top-100 instructor and the director of online instruction for Golf Channel's online academy.

We have tried and field tested every golf launch monitor on the market, Brewer said. FlightScope has been our choice at the Brad Brewer Golf Academy over all others because of its amazing accuracy and simplicity of use. Our ability to fit equipment and demonstrate the importance of proper technique by showing ball-flight and club-path statistics has taken our player development services to a new level.

FlightScope, which enjoyed great success at the 2008 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month, first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. FlightScope is in use at high-profile teaching academies and clubfitting venues worldwide, as well as for personal practice by tour professionals and other 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, and is based in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town in South Africa. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
