17 JANUARY 2024 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA – – Golf’s moving floor specialist Zen is showing its Green Stage and Swing Stage models at the 2024 PGA Show in Orlando, Florida.
Prior to the exhibition, an invited audience will see a Swing Catalyst demonstration at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club on 22-23 January, with its force plates embedded in a Zen Swing Stage to enable a new level of video analysis.
During the Show days (24-26 January) an adjustable Zen Green Stage configured for putting will be used by SkyGolf on its booth #1401, and the specialist Zen Swing Stage for hitting shots on gradients will be used by Smart2Move the force plates company on its booth #1281.
Both Zens enable golf to be played on virtually limitless gradients while using Tour-quality putting and hitting surfaces.
Zen’s Andy Hiseman said: “After our successful debut at the PGA Show last year, we wanted to use this year’s show to demonstrate how Zen moving floors help to activate other people’s technology.
“We are delighted to be working with Swing Catalyst, SkyGolf and Smart2Move as they showcase their world-class products on Zen’s real-world slopes, bringing golf indoors to life as never before.”
Zen products are now widely used by PGA Tour golfers and their coaches, leading universities and colleges, and PGA academies worldwide including at headquarters of the PGA of America.
SkyGolf’s James Holmes said: “The ability to create any makeable putt on the planet, using the Zen, will add a new dimension to our booth at this year’s PGA Show.”
Swing Catalyst’s Carl Christian Hansen said: “With the Swing Catalyst Motion Plates, you can dial in a player’s most effective baseline use of pressure and ground reaction forces. When you add a Zen Swing Stage to the equation, you can take this baseline and adjust it for various slopes, to much better prepare the player for how he uniquely needs to adapt to the game out on the golf course”
Smart2Move’s Gregory Lebrat said: “Ground reaction forces change significantly when golfers are standing on slopes, and the Zen Swing Stage with Smart2Move technology clearly shows this.”
Excluding delivery and installation, the Zen Swing Stage for hitting shots from sloping lies starts at $19,450 USD. The adjustable Zen Green Stage, which adds Tour-quality putting, starts at $30,945.
