February 02, 2010– SkyCaddie SGX, was launched in ORLANDO, Florida on February 1, 2010 by SkyGolf, pioneer of the GPS rangefinder category and developer of SkyCaddie the #1 Rangefinder in Golf. They introduced a series of complementary game-changing technologies with the launch of its revolutionary SkyCaddie SGX, the next generation rangefinder; SGX SmartClub Technology, a break-through innovation adding intelligence and wireless connectivity to golf clubs; and ClubSG, the portal to golfs future.
Richard Edmonson, CEO, SkyGolf said this about SkyCaddie SGX:
Our mission is to help golfers play smarter, play better, play faster and have more fun. We believe that if golfers experience more rewards from the game, they will play more rounds, take more lessons, get properly fit for equipment, and share their passion with other golfers, both new and inactive, to help to grow the game….
The SkyCaddie SGX, golfs next generation rangefinder, boasts a durable, new sleek design with a large 3 easy-to-read, transflective LCD screen that provides brilliant color images even in the brightest sunlight. Powered by a long lasting rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, the SGX is ready for up to 14 hours of continuous play. With its new, intuitive user interface, errors generated with large fingers and the difficulty of using gloves on touch screens are totally eliminated.
The SGX also includes SkyCaddies proprietary TruePoint Precision Positioning Technology in a high performance GPS engine with ultra-fast satellite acquisition for unmatched accuracy and reliability. To trust their club, a golfer has to be able to trust their caddie, just like a Tour player. The SGX is built to be trusted.
For the ultimate in convenience and reliability, the SGX offers up to 30,000 pre-loaded, ground-verified maps making it Ready to Play out of the box with basic green information. Only SkyCaddie spends the time and money to ground-verify every single course map in its library to make sure its golfers have information they can trust. Nothing else comes close.
The SGX also supports SkyCaddies growing database of courses offering Interactive HoleVue with Zoom capability. SkyCaddie is creating the first-of-its-kind, ground-corrected graphics library of courses maps in brilliant colors and detail. HoleVue enables the golfer to know the distance to any point on a hole, which helps them to plan the best strategy to play the hole in the fewest strokes.
The SGX is further separated from its competition through SkyCaddies patented IntelliGreen technology that showcases the exact shape of the green by automatically rotating the green to match a golfers angle of approach.
Golfers also can use the SGX to learn how far they hit each club and create a personal club profile. Thereafter, each time a golfer checks his yardage, a new Club Ranging Meter displays where the distance fits within his range of clubs.
Lastly, SGX offers a convenient Digital Scorecard and Stat Tracking option to track key game statistics, including: greens in regulation, fairways hit, driving accuracy and distance, plus total putts.
What truly defines the SGX as the next generation rangefinder is its compatibility with SkyCaddies revolutionary SGX SmartClub Technology expected to be released later in 2010.
The final component in the Companys portal to golfs future is ClubSG Beta, SkyGolfs new online community located at www.skygolf.com. ClubSG Beta connects golfers to their game, their courses, their equipment, their teachers and each other.
Edmonson adds, Growing the game by helping golfers to play better and have more fun fuels the passion that keeps us innovating. This innovation is why were #1 in golfs only growth category, and why we always have something game-changing on the horizon.
