Technology will provide accurate and relevant golf equipment feedback from golfers around the world.
Tampa, FL, (April 9, 2015) – THP Media, parent company of The Hackers Paradise golf website, is proud to name FlightScope as preferred launch monitor for use at dozens of THP Events held around the country.
Josh Babbitt, Marketing Director at THP Media notes, “The Hackers Paradise has always believed in letting regular golfers of all skill levels participate in the feedback process rather than dictating to them what golf equipment is best. We introduced this in 2010 with our very first THP Demo Day, where golfers from all over the world were able to sample and provide feedback on equipment from almost every major manufacturer. FlightScope will enable us to put power in the consumers’ hands like never before. By incorporating the exciting technology they bring to the table, we will have immediate access to accurate data from golfers that attend THP Events all over the country and we can relay that information quickly to our readers.”
THP Media plans to have FlightScope available soon for use at its events, where golfers of all abilities will be able to try the latest equipment and provide instantaneous feedback to readers via the THP Forum. In addition, FlightScope’s comprehensive software package, with features like Data Comparison, 3D Swing Analysis, Real Time 3D Shot Plot, and Skills App, will enhance the attendees’ experience and enable aggregation of the data collected for further analysis and dissemination.
