Digital Pro Introduces "Golf Pro in a Bag"

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwire - September 4, 2007) - There are few things more frustrating in golf than getting up to the first tee with a bunch of friends, excited and ready for a fun day, then hitting a terrible shot that dribbles off a few dozen yards or slices out of bounds. It feels even worse when you've just come off the driving range and hit five great shots in a row!

Something like this has happened to just about every golfer. Was it the "golfing gods" again or something in the swing? It's hard to know what went wrong. No wonder so many people just give up the game! But what if there was a way to have a golf pro by your side all the time? One company has figured out how to do just this.

The founders of Digital Pro Golf (www.digitalprogolf.com) spent five years researching and designing a low-cost, easy-to-use solution so the average golfer could have a "pro in their bag." "We've given golfers a simple way to record any of their swings while they're on the course so that their game can be easily analyzed later by a PGA professional or by themselves to correct mistakes," says Richard Miller, CEO of Digital Pro. "The system is always in the golfer's bag and takes only seconds to set up. We've taken the guess work out of the game."

The Digital Pro Golf on-course recording and swing analysis system costs as little as $149, which includes a high-quality camcorder, tripod, custom software, teaching library and immediate access to PGA professionals.

Mr. Miller led the development of this system out of a personal desire to become a better golfer. "I tried traditional lessons, swing training tools, and countless days at the driving range. I can't tell you how many times I hit the ball great at the range, only to have it all fall apart on the course. I needed to know what was going wrong. With the Digital Pro Golf system, the problems in my course play became immediately apparent. My score started dropping faster than ever. And I had fun doing it! Having a PGA pro analyze my on-course swing made all the difference. Now that I know what to look for, I record my swings often and use the software to detect any mistakes I make while playing. When I need more help, I simply pick a pro and send out my swing. The analysis comes back automatically in a few hours."

The PC and Mac-compatible software (including Vista) is easy to use because every button and function is explained simply by placing the cursor over the object. No menus to learn. No commands to remember. Just plug the camcorder into a computer (using its built-in USB plug) and press one button to import swings. From there, you can analyze your own swings using many of the built-in tools and the extensive video library, or easily choose a PGA pro to provide a custom analysis for less than $20. The system fits right in your golf bag, just like any other club, and takes only seconds to set up, never slowing the pace of play.

As Mr. Miller says, "It's always with me. Anytime I feel something going wrong on the course, I quickly set it up and record my next swing. I can easily record dozens of swings, chips, sand shots... even putts. It's particularly fun to record swings of my playing partners and send those to them with the touch of a button. It's just something every golf needs in their bag."

Finally, a way to have a golf pro by your side all the time. There may yet be hope for your game!
