As the host of this year’s competition, South Korea’s leading golf simulator company GOLFZON provided GDR practice facilities for all participants.

GOLFZON provided four GDR simulators at the Queen Sirikit Cup 2016 driving range facility for the players competing in the tournament. The GDR is a professional-level practice simulator that instantly displays swing data. With the GDR, players were able to analyze and adjust their swings in preparation for the tournament.

Some of the players already had previous experience with the GDR, and for others, this was their first exposure. With the GDR’s instant post-swing analysis, the players were able to quickly and effectively warm-up on the various practice modules.
Among the amateur golfers, first time users of the GDR system collectively commented, “During practice, this would be a big help. Being able to provide a complete view of the swing data will greatly improve the progress of your game.” The players were also impressed with the ability to practice indoors and outdoors on the GDR.
As the official golf simulator of the LPGA, GOLFZON’s superior technology is recognized worldwide. And as such, GOLFZON is installing golf simulators at domestic and international tournaments to improve the practice experience for the players. The sponsorship agreement with LPGA prospect, Alison Lee, also furthers GOLFZON’s commitment to global golf activities.
