LOS ANGELES -- XGOLF Simulator, a world-renowned technologically-advanced golf simulator, club-fitting and instructional system, had a presence at last week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, an official PGA Tour event played Oct. 17-20 at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. A full XGOLF Simulator system was set up in a large tent on the driving range near the main entrance, where all week long tournament attendees enjoyed XGOLF's exciting technology, free of charge. Closest-to-the-pin and longest-drive contests were conducted throughout the week.

"It was our pleasure to provide our state-of-the-art XGOLF Simulator technology to attendees at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open," said Joseph Huh, CEO of XGOLF. "People savored the chance to practice and play the finest simulated golf on the XGOLF Simulator, on some of the most famous golf courses in the world."

About XGOLF Simulator
Individual avid golfers, as well as instructors and club fitters, have discovered that XGOLF's exclusive design, durability and cutting-edge technological features, as well as its superior graphics and exciting new capabilities, 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 this year 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.
