ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “We've been through a lot this last year, year and a half. I've been able to sort of rely on golf and escape to golf, and golf's been great to me for a long time. It's not failed me this last bit of time, and I'm honored and privileged to be able to play this game and compete at this level against these young people. It's a lot of fun to compete and when you have a good week like this -- no, I'm not going to win, but still, it's a pretty solid week and it's something that I can build on.”

RANGER RICK: Carl’s Golfland a golf retail and practice facility in the United States has installed TrackMan at its Bloomfield Hills facility. Founded in 1958, it is considered one of the largest independent golf retailers in the United States. With two brick and mortar locations and an on-line presence, Carl’s is known for its retail, custom club fitting and practice facilities. “We are extremely happy that TrackMan chose Carl’s Golfland as the first range in America to offer this cutting-edge technology to our customers,” said Carl Rose.

Range customers will be able to download a free TrackMan range app on their mobile devices and then track and record their shots in real time from virtually any position on Carl’s driving range. Practice will now have real time stats for launch angle, ball speed, carry and total yards right on a mobile device. Future enhancements of single and multiplayer “range games” are said to be coming soon. “We could not have picked a better place in America to debut our range solution than Carl’s Golfland.” - Klaus Eldrup-Jørgensen / CEO and Co-founder of TrackMan
