MIA & FlightScope at the BMW Championship

May 23, 2013

Following the highly successful presence at the 2012 Championship, once again FlightScope has proved it is at the cutting edge of ball flight tracking technology as it delivers golf fans attending The BMW PGA Championships 2013, Wentworth with real time ball flight and club data from the World's leading golf stars.

In a joint collaboration with ARL (Animated Research Limited - New Zealand) and London based Creative Technology, FlightScope have integrated real time trajectories with club and ball data over ARL's animated graphics of Wentworths 1 st hole, all delivered to spectators on large format video walls throughout the 4 days of the tournament.

Malcolm Mackenzie from MIA Sports Technology, FlightScope's flagship distributor, and a European Tour professional with over 600 appearances on his CV, was once again instrumental in bringing the partnership together and quick to promote the benefits that will be enjoyed by the spectator: "the golfing public have become highly tuned into performance data with the rapid adoption of tracking technology within the golf club retail market. The ability to compare their own data with that of the leading tournament professionals brings a whole new dimension to the viewing experience."

The FlightScope radars being used at the BMW PGA Championship will be the company's flagship X2, a next generation 3D club and ball tracking radar that allows you to measure and see carry distance, club paths, club head speed, ball launch angles and ball spin data.

The X series consist of the newest models, X1 and X2. Leading the range is the X2 which offers exceptional versatility with an amazing battery life of 10 hours, full wireless capability allowing direct connection to a PC, smart phone or mobile device including both Apple and Android platforms, plus the option of a built in alignment camera and self-levelling feet. Mobile applications will be available through the Apple App store and Android marketplace.
