K Golf, a South Korean innovator in golf simulator systems has signed a sponsorship agreement with golfer YE Yang. Yang gained international attention beating out Tiger Woods at the 2009 PGA Championship. His win was the first time an Asian player captured the coveted PGA Championship.
“We’re extremely pleased in our partnership with YE Yang,” said K Golf CEO Seok Woong Choi, sharing his enthusiasm. “The endorsement, which was signed on September 16, will help bring K Golf to a wide audience of golf enthusiasts.”
K Golf has taken a unique approach to the indoor golf environment. In the past, indoor golf was divided between screen golf games and golf practice. They have merged both into one system as well as offering amenities one would find at a traditional outdoor golf club.
On technical specs, K Golf’s new BGS2.0 (Beyond Golf Simulator) was born after more than 3 1/2 years of research and development. Their 4000FPS ultra-high-speed camera directly measures the spin and direction angles to ensure excellent accuracy. Adding realism to the game, graphics from K Golf’s Unreal 4 technology are close to real life, too.
“We feel K Golf will be the leader in the global golf simulator market,” said JK Lee, Senior Sales Director. “Our business model offers very competitive pricing, new features, and cutting-edge technology—all offered in a new upbeat golf environment. We’re all excited to be partnering with YE Yang. ”
