SkyGolf to participate in 2020 PGA Merchandise Show

Manufacturer of SkyCaddie rangefinder will display its complete product lineup

RIDGELAND, MS, January 20, 2020... SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie®, the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, announced today it will exhibit at the 2020 PGA Merchandise Show January 22 through January 24 in booth #1801 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. SkyGolf will display its complete lineup of innovative products designed to help golfers score better and improve their games both on and off the course.

“SkyGolf continues to pioneer the use of innovative, technology-based products to help golfers to improve their game and have more fun,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Senior VP and COO. “We’re excited to showcase our completely new family of next generation rangefinders, to include the SX500 and SX400 with brilliant 5-inch and 4-inch graphical displays, plus the LX5 GPS Golf Smartwatch with the industry’s largest color touch-screen display. We invite buyers, distributors and media to visit our booth to view and demo our exciting new lineup and discover why amateurs and professionals alike find that our products provide all the information they need in a faster and easier way so they can focus on playing their best golf.”

Last year, SkyGolf introduced the 20th anniversary limited edition SX500, with the fastest processor, best battery life and the largest and most vivid display in the industry. The SX500 quickly became recognized for its outstanding functionality and powerful features. My Golf Spy awarded the SX500 its “Most Wanted” status and it was validated by tour professionals with five wins and several top ten finishes on the European Senior Staysure Tour in 2019.

The SX500’s little brother, the new SkyCaddie SX400, gives golfers the same powerful features found in the award-winning, tour-proven SX500 model, in a more compact size. With a full high-definition 4-inch touch screen driven by an ultra-fast multi-core processor, the SkyCaddie SX400 joins the SX500 to deliver the most powerful way to measure yardage while providing the very “best view” in golf. Both the SX500 and SX400 are preloaded with over 35,000 best-in-class courses and feature Wi-Fi connectivity to streamline application updates and getting the latest course updates without connecting to a computer.

“Since launching the new next-generation SkyCaddie SX family, we’ve had rave reviews from customers and media alike. We’ve received comments such as: ‘Love it. Great size. Great information.’ ‘Best SkyCaddie yet.’ ‘Wonderful. Just what I wanted/needed!’,” added Surman.

In addition to the SX family, SkyGolf is introducing the new SkyCaddie LX5 GPS Golf Smartwatch with the industry’s largest color touch screen at 1.39 inches. Packed with many of the same features as the SX500 and SX400, the LX5 provides full holeview imagery with the best graphics in golf, allowing you to zoom in for more detail. A responsive and easy-to-use interface makes navigating during play almost touch free. Just pan the fairway image up and down to focus on any area of the hole and move the cursor for accurate distances to critical targets.

IntelliGreen® Technology is part of both the SX and LX products to display the exact shape of the green from your angle of approach to provide accurate front and back distance plus any other point on the green. Simply slide the cursor to the pin location or any target position on the green to update your distances with no aiming, or missing, with a laser.

All SkyCaddie products, including the LX5 smartwatch have a digital scorecard with the ability to track key performance stats including fairways hit and putts in the SkyGolf 360 Cloud. It’s a stylish, lightweight and comfortable golf GPS smartwatch and just as the SX family, the LX5 comes preloaded and “ready-to-play” with over 35,000 ground-verified, error-corrected courses to provide distances you can trust. SkyCaddie does not rely upon aerial imagery with known errors by using the short-cuts taken by the competition.

Also, don’t miss the opportunity test your skills on SkyTrak which was voted Best Personal Launch Monitor by MyGolfSpy and recognized by Golf Digest as an Editors’ Choice Award winner for three years in a row in its annual “Best in Golf” edition. On the back of another record sales year, the latest SkyTrak app will be available for demonstration along with the new TruGolf Connect software and TGC 2019. Now, consumers, professionals and club mangers can incorporate golf simulators into their homes and facilities at a fraction of the cost of comparable professional alternatives.

In summary, SkyGolf’s commitment to innovation has created the largest portfolio of game improvement and performance tracking products in golf to help golfers play better, play smarter and have more fun! And each product is built around a single platform, SkyGolf 360, to allow golfers to keep all performance data regardless of whether it comes from a rangefinder, a swing sensor, a performance tracker or a launch monitor in the same cloud rather than scattered among various competitors with incompatible platforms. A single platform that supports PCs, iOS and Android is not only to the golfer’s advantage, but it is also to the advantage of a teacher, PGA Professional or reseller to be able to offer all available tools a golfer can need to improve their performance from one source with the confidence their customers are getting the very best solution. SkyGolf 360 is also available to our commercial accounts who can use it to stay engaged with their students and members to find opportunities to offer their help and services as needed.
