About the Chicago Golf Show
The Chicago Golf Show, which began in 1983, was the first-ever consumer golf show in the United States. Supported by the Illinois PGA Section, it takes pride in presenting a professional convention that shows off the wares of its exhibitors. Starting from a few tabletop exhibits in a hotel ballroom, the Chicago Golf Show has continued to grow, becoming one of the Midwest's largest golf shows, featuring everything related to golf. This year over 15,000 attendees are expected.

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.

New XGOLF features introduced at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., last month 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 enhance even further XGOLF's appeal for home environments, restaurants, entertainment venues, golf clubs and retail golf outlets.

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.
