    Woould love this thing. Set it up at the fire station and work on the game all winter long. Could be lots of fun. Thanks.

  2. Darrin Vail says:

    Would love the Optishot. My son and I can practice after he gets home from school. Especially greaat to use this during these shorter days when we can’t get to the driving range.

  3. ArmyGolf says:

    I cant wait to turn my garage into my own personal golf course, its truly a dream come true! Its a long and wet winter up here and this would be perfect.

  4. Bruce Kyle says:

    This would be great for me and my two boys on rainy days.

  5. nomadic_duffer says:

    My wife and I and our two sons play golf and would love to be able to practice with this together year round.

    Winter in Wyoming is L O N G ! ! !
    I need an OptiShot so I can remember what my swing is like next Spring.

  7. NJK_MSPT says:

    I may have gotten soft since I moved south a few years ago, but practicing indoors beats battling the outdoor elements

  8. cj3ap2 says:

    This thing would be a great help for me to get feedback. I have a net that I hit into but there’s no real feedback to it. It’d be pretty cool to have a simulator and practice shots on those simulated course designs. hit 3 irons on the 17th tee of the replica pebble beach, try to carry the bunker and get home in 2 on the replica 5th of bethpage black.

  9. MSchad says:

    I have always wanted something for indoors, being winter is a long long part of the year in South Dakota. My golfing buddies and I have said it would be fun to have this and do an indoor leauge during the winter. Would love to win it.

    This would be a great addition in helping me to improve and stay sharp in the weather shortened season where I live.

    The feedback and relationship to actual conditions would be a terrific training tool while having fun at the same time.

  12. Smallville says:

    This could be cool if it works in my house. Hopefully the ceilings are high enough.

  13. ddxu says:

    This would be a great way to keep my buddies and me entertained through the winter months. The snow piles and dreary skies cant keep us down for long!

  14. Sharkwrestler says:

    The optishot would be a cool tool to use when it’s cruddy outside.

  15. 99srxman says:

    Well this is easy haven’t swung a club in over a month now with 5 months of snow on the ground it is not easy to keep up to par with your game so this would not be a wasted item here…

  16. Jjmorris says:

    Can’t believe I didn’t enter this yet! Being up north, this would be HUGE to keep my golf game tight during the winter months!

    @jjmorris9

  17. ncrowe83 says:

    My garage is not big enough for my truck but would be perfect for this!

  18. g0lfl0ver says:

    Could definitely use this to practice almost every night. I wake up when its dark out and work until its dark out so don’t really ever get to practice!

  19. Roy Kim says:

    I can totally use this in the office or in the living room…

    @jimnycricket65

  20. Steel President says:

    Well, I’m looking outside at the snowy/rainy/sleety/slushy/disgusting weather and realizing that this would be perfect to have right about now. I’m stuck without golf for a few more months..help me!!!

    Seriously though, thanks to THP and OptiShot for an awesome contest.

    This would be an awesome prize! Living in CT I can’t play 4+ months a year. This would be an awesome way to extend the season! Thank you THP and Optishot!

  22. Shanks says:

    Lot’s of room for that, I’m in.

  23. jeremyheslop says:

    I’ve had my eye on this for along time and would love to try it out. I would setup my garage just for this if I got one. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Would love to use this during the winter!

  26. DufferToo says:

    My wife is just starting out and the OptiShot would provide her a great way to practice without feeling self conscience and I would use it as often as possible because I need all the practice I can get.

    Thank you OptiShot and THP for this opportunity.

    The Optishot would be great in my basement right next to my workshop!

  28. ddec says:

    The optishot would be perfect for a day like this. Currently snowing outside and I’m left inside with no golf. Whether it be because of temperature or rain/snow, this would keep me golfing all year.

  29. JConn says:

    An Optishot could really help me improve my game during these nasty winter months in the Pacific Northwest! Rain or shine I could hit the links in the comfort of my own home. Thank you THP and Dancing Dogg for this contest.

    Would love an Optishot to help work on mine and my boy’s games. My schedule has me going in before sunlight in the morning and getting home as the sun is setting, and it would be awesome for him and I to be able to go out to the garage and spend some time working on our swings in the evenings. Thanks THP to Optishot for an awesome contest!

  31. Anand mudaliar says:

    Played a round on Christmas Day with at least 3 layers top and bottom, it was cold and excruciatingly painful but instead of that’s it I am done for this year me and this buddy of mine stared talking about buying a golf cart cover and golf cart heater.
    I started playing 2 years ago and I am 16 handicapper. I always wonder what if I started to play at an early age I would been a scratch player or better but we all know thats eaiser said than done, thats 28 years of my life with no golf.
    To compensate all I want to do is play all the time. My life revolves around golf from playing to watching to reading to shopping.
    I would love the optishot as it would both allow me to play everyday of my life and improve my game.

  32. Trock says:

    My son and I would love one of these so we can work on our game this winter. He’s a senior in high school who took up the game this past summer and would like to try out for his school golf team. Thanks!!

  33. Blackjack says:

    Yes. Been the commercials. Looks cool and would love to give it a try

  34. Iceman says:

    Since moving to North Dakota with the military there is no way to play with the longer winters. Could set up in my garage during winter to play.

  35. Lonny Wright says:

    I have been telling people about this product everyday for the last month or so,would love to have one.

  36. Curtis Wallace says:

    Simply put, I live in Canada. Weather is not always golf friendly lol. This is incredible technology, and it would be incredible to be able to play all year!

  37. Dan lai says:

    People in golf galaxy and golf smith are getting real tired of me using their bays as my own personal driving range. Winter is tough on a golf addict like me. Definitely need an optishot to set up in my basement!

  38. c0ncept says:

    I would love to be able to set this up in my house so I could practice/play indoors but I would rather it go to someone who can’t get out in the winter so just wanted to post this and say thanks to THP and OptiShot for giving a lucky THP’er this opportunity!

  39. Foster says:

    At 62, I am constantly working on my swing to stay competitive. I also have 4 grandsons to teach, ages 6 thru 20. The Opti-Shot would enable me to teach my grandsons proper swing and have fun while doing it.

    I would love this optishot. It would help my golf game as well as my fathers! We only get to play golf for half the year because of the winter! Would be awesome for these long cold winters in northern Michigan!

  42. Colin Hinds says:

    Would have a blast with this thing….I live in a dorm and have large common that it would be great in. 10 college guys that all play golf live with me, would be a fun addition and help the game out.
