LOS ANGELES -- XGOLF, a world-renowned technologically-advanced golf simulator, club-fitting and instructional system, will introduce several new state-of-the-art features in booth #1661 at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show, to take place Jan. 24-26 in Orlando, Fla. XGOLF users now will enjoy an even more sophisticated and multifunctional golf-simulation experience.

Also, a new XGOLF simulator model at an affordable price point will be available for sale immediately following the PGA Merchandise Show. Starting under $30,000, the XGOLF Model E is the highest-selling model in the global market and is an excellent option for multi-unit applications.

New XGOLF features include:

• an all-new touch-screen display with user-friendly interface that allows for seamless training and video swing analysis;

• advanced graphics engine; enables more realistic graphics with field realism; flying bird, water reflection, trees and shadows;

• event mode with unlimited participants for Closest-to-the-Pin and Longest-Drive contests, as well as a Putting Challenge;

• addition of more worldwide, renowned premium golf courses.

The new features will enhance even further XGOLF's appeal for golf clubs and retail golf outlets, restaurants, entertainment venues and home environments.

"We look forward to introducing and displaying the new XGOLF features," said James Kim, CEO of XGOLF. "This new version is even more addictive.

"Instructors, club fitters and individual avid golfers will appreciate XGOLF's stunning graphics and exciting new capabilities."

XGOLF's exclusive design, durability and cutting-edge technological features make it the most exceptional and innovative yet value-driven golf-simulator system. With unique features such as XPLATE (Variable Lie Positioning Plate) and XBALL (Intelligent Ball Teeing), the authenticity of XGOLF's simulated golf is unparalleled, replicating real shots on the screen and providing the most realistic golf experience possible. As a leading technology provider, XGOLF has as its main mission to listen and innovate based on customers' evolving needs and expectations.

The XPLATE Variable Lie Positioning System detects the ground slope and automatically adjusts the slope where a golfer stands to provide a more realistic experience. The slope also can be adjusted manually for practicing uphill, downhill and sidehill-lie shots.

The XBALL Intelligent Teeing System gathers the balls and puts one on the tee before every shot. During the game, it remembers each player's tee-height setting, so that it feels as though a personal caddy has set the ball in place. This feature saves precious time and allows the player to concentrate on the game.

Retailers, instructors, club fitters and avid individual golfers look to XGOLF to provide the most exciting and rewarding golf-simulation experience available anywhere.

The realism and beauty of the XGOLF playing experience is matched only by the accuracy and precision of its swing-analysis technology. Swing analysis, an integral and important aspect of the game, is easily accessible and highly accurate with XGOLF. Every caliber golfer, from tour player to occasional recreational player, can benefit from the unlimited game-improvement potential and opportunities XGOLF offers. And instructors worldwide count on XGOLF to deliver the finest analysis capability to enhance their teaching techniques and leverage cutting-edge technologies to help their students make precise swing adjustments for improved results. Through the use of strategically-placed numerous optical sensors, XGOLF tracks extensive swing data, providing detailed shot information, video analysis, weight-shift analysis and data analysis.
