What's new with the updated OptiShot 2 Golf Simulator?

April 5, 2017 / Team PlayBetter

With the introduction of the OptiShot2, golfers now have another simulator to help bring their game to the next level. Of course, whenever a company releases a new version of an already existing product, a lot of people simply want to know “well, what’s changed?” It’s a fair question at that, so with the release of OptiShot2, it wasn’t long before people wanted to find out what makes the new simulator different from its predecessor. So let’s take a look, shall we? To be blunt, when comparing the OptiShot2 with the OptiShot, the newer version is just, well, better. There have been multiple improvements on the simulator, making for a much more accurate and enjoyable experience.

First, the OptiShot2 features unparalleled swing analysis. Arguably the biggest reservation people have when it comes to golf simulators is the accuracy of the device. But with OptiShot2, you won’t have to worry. The simulator boasts 16 high-speed infrared sensors, meaning the device is precisely tuned for tracking every aspect of your swing, including club head speed, face angle, distance traveled, swing path, face contact, shot shape and swing tempo. You can even calibrate your favorite clubs, see shot patterns and you’ll get instant feedback on every shot.

Also, when it comes to using a golf simulator, variety is key. Thankfully, the OptiShot2 comes with a lot more free courses compared to the previous version. Here’s a list of courses you’ll be able to enjoy with the OptiShot2:

- Golf Club Scottsdale
- Long Island Black
- Torrey White
- Torrey Black
- Palm Desert Mountains
- Palm Desert Canyons
- Black Mountain
- Barseback Golf Club
- Canadian Club
- Osterakers Golf Club
- West Maui Plantation
- Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club
- Fylde Links
- Cogs Corner
- Twisted Twig

The OptiShot2 also offers Season Pass. With Season Pass, users can open up access to an online tournament platform, allowing them to compete against golfers from around the world. This means you can always have the opportunity for a little competition and even snatch up great prizes in various online tournaments.

And with a number of products, you typically learn soon after getting it home and out of the box that you need to purchase additional accessories or attachments to truly complete the experience. But not this time. The OptiShot2 comes with the option for “Golf-In- A-Box,” a rather catchy phrase that lets you know you’ll have everything you need when you order the simulator. In addition to the OptiShot2 device, you’ll receive a high grade hitting net and a hitting mat which has been specially designed to fit the OptiShot2 simulator.

Of course, along with new features and improvements, the details that made the OptiShot such a successful simulator are back, too. The OptiShot2 is a compact simulator that lets you hit the links from anywhere, including inside your home or office. With crystal clear graphics and an incredibly intuitive interface, you can play some of golf’s top courses and receive instant and continuous feedback as you make your way through 18 holes. The beauty of the golf simulator is it doesn’t matter whether you’re taking steps to improve your game, playing against friends and family or just killing time on a rainy day. With OptiShot2, you’ll never be too far away from enjoying some time on the links (even if the kitchen is just a few steps away).

As with every new piece of technology, it’s important to make sure you’ve got the right operating system that will handle the speed and precision of the OptiShot2. If you’ve purchased an iOS or Windows device recently, you’re most likely in good shape, but just to be sure, here’s a list of what you’ll need to get the most out of your simulator:
