Golf Launchpad Tour is truly plug-and-play. Simple connect Launchpad into your PC, Mac or PlayStation3's USB port, start TIGER WOODS or LPDR-TOUR and you're ready to play or practice!
Golf Launchpad Tour is the only golf simulator that gives you the real deal - authentic feel, sound and performance from driving to putting with your own clubs - without big simulator cost and mega-space requirements!
How it Works
Golf Launchpad's tethered ball has been designed to reproduce the impact-physics of a free ball to perfection. Utilizing a flexible tether (which permits the ball to spin) and a precisely calibrated pivot, Golf Launchpad's ball is designed to impart the same forces to the club as a free ball. This means that you feel and hear the thwack of your irons and the ping of your woods just as you would on the fairway. We call this TruFeel and it is the subject of several patent applications. Optical sensors embedded deep under the turf track your club over the sensor grid during the critical moment of impact, measuring vast quantities of data off your club, such as angle, velocity, acceleration and path. Electric~Spins state-of-the-art digital signal processing technology embedded in Golf Launchpad converts the mountains of raw data into pinpoint accuracy.
A regulation Surlyn golf-ball on a lightweight, flexible tether connected to a double-ball-bearing pivot arrangement to reproduce the mechanical dynamics of free-ball impact for accurate feel and impact-sound (user replaceable).
Optical sensors and digital signal processing circuitry to measure the clubs motion through impact, including such parameters such as clubspeed, club face-angle and club-path, and translate these data into simulated ball flight in the game.
LPDR is a sophisticated software driving range simulator for Golf Launchpad. LPDR provides swing and shot analysis, featuring aircraft style instrumentation, shot speed and angle, as well as ball launch data and trajectory graphs.

Comments about Electric Spin Electric Spin Golf Launchpad Golf Simulator:
This is a great sim. I use it to practice year round. My game's never been better, and I've been playing more rounds since I got this thing. The sound and feel are very authentic. Nothing negative to say -- just does what it says. I use it on my PC and PS3
