FlightScope® Named Official Launch Monitor of the Ontario PGA

(Pickering, Ont., August 27, 2009) –– The Ontario PGA is pleased to welcome FlightScope® as its newest partner. FlightScope, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and launch monitor, is the world’s first-ever 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf. FlightScope will sponsor the Ontario PGA Teacher of the Year award as well as the NIKE GOLF Ontario PGA Fall Scramble presented by FlightScope.

“We are pleased to welcome FlightScope as our newest partner,” said Chris Miranda, president of the Ontario PGA. “FlightScope, used by top instructors in the world, is at the cutting edge of Doppler radar ball tracking, which will definitely benefit our members.”

FlightScope, an award-winning feature-rich device which is far more than just a launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. Many golf clubs, instructors, academies, club fitters, collegiate golf programs, green-grass and practice facilities, retailers and golf equipment manufacturers have embraced FlightScope’s state-of-the-art technology.

“It will be a pleasure to partner with the Ontario PGA,” says Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope, whose worldwide sales and marketing division is based in Orlando, Florida.

The FlightScope / Ontario PGA partnership is a multi-year deal that will see the Ontario PGA Teacher of Year earn the use of a FlightScope for the year. In addition, Warren Map├ę, FlightScope director of sales development for Canada, will be at select Ontario PGA tournaments to assist players with their ball statistics.

About FlightScope®
FlightScope first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to its use at high-profile teaching academies and club-fitting venues worldwide, FlightScope is utilized for personal practice by tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement. It is known for its ease of use as well as the precision and accuracy of its technology. FlightScope employs phased array and ballistic tracking technology to record accurately the ball trajectory and to provide actual launch data. The characteristic distinguishing FlightScope from existing launch monitor technology is that FlightScope records the trajectory accurately in the precise environment in which the ball travels, thereby providing actual rather than implied data. The resultant ability of golfers, club fitters and instructors to see the actual ball trajectory at various angles allows them to make precise adjustments for enhanced performance.

EDH, maker of FlightScope, is a product development company founded in 1989 by Henri Johnson, inventor and electronic engineer. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
