Phigolf WGT Edition Mobile Golf Simulator Game combines the World Golf Tour (WGT) mobile game app with the power of Phigolf's state of the art golf club sensor to become the most exciting, true-to-sport, portable, and affordable golf simulator in the world. Hackers to scratch golfers are gonna LOVE this!
Phigolf is a mobile golf simulator system that includes a club sensor that analyzes your swing and relays the swing data to the Phigolf simulator app, allowing you to practice or play a round with friends and family. Two people can play one onother even remotely. You only need a smartphone, tablet, or an AppleTV to play Phigolf, and the screen can be mirrored onto a big screen TV for a more immersive game experience. Phigolf successfully raised funds on Kickstarter just last year.
You know World Golf Tour, or WGT. It's the #1 online video golf game on the planet! Stunningly realistic, providing access to the world’s most famous courses, WGT is free to play and more than 15 million virtual golfers across the globe are enjoying it.
As an online mobile game, WGT is clearly a ton of fun, even if you're just controlling your swings with your fingers or mouse. But what if you could physically swing a club that realistically replicates your shots on a big screen? This would take WGT to the next level of reality and enjoyment, and that's where Phigolf comes in!
Topgolf Media, the makers of WGT, and PhiNetworks are partnering up to combine software and hardware technologies to offer you a complete golf simulator package with authentic look and feel of the sport.
Now with the integration of Phigolf's sensor into WGT's system, swinging your golf club will transport you to world famous courses in WGT. Use the sensor on the included swing trainer whose shortened length is ideal for the living room or office. Or easily mount the sensor on your own club and practice while you play. You can even use Phigolf's WGT Edition Mobile Golf Simulator on the driving range or while hitting balls into a net. The Phigolf Sensor and WGT on your smartphone makes it that portable. And you'll be able to play with or against friends & family in remote locations. Play in tournaments specifically for Phigolf WGT Edition players all while earning coins and experience points through WGT.
Similar golf simulator systems can cost thousands of dollars. Phigolf WGT Edition Mobile Golf Simulator wants to change that! All passionate golfers should have access to realistic golf regardless of weather or location. Never worry about that upcoming snow storm or that unbearable heat wave again. Traveling for work all week? No problem, get in a few holes from the comfort of your hotel room.
There are so many ways to enjoy Phigolf. This simulator is rated E for EVERYONE!

To thank our backers for bringing to life the most affordable true-to-sport golf simulator in the market, we are throwing in some

In 2013, we at the Phigolf Team sought to return the thrill of golf back into golf practice. The first prototype of this multi-platform (TV, tablet, smartphone) golf simulation took over 4 years. In the process, not only did we create our own unique swing analysis algorithm, we also built an interactive and realistic golf game from the ground up. Now Phi Golf is on the last step towards production. We very much hope that you will enjoy Phi Golf as much as we do!
Risks and challenges
The great thing about this project is that it's two established products being integrated to form one bigger and better product. While we're aware that there can be challenges in the integration, both WGT and Phigolf engineering teams are confident of success. WGT has experience doing similar integrations and the Phigolf team has already been working with WGT to make this happen.
Besides THAT, there are no changes to the Phigolf hardware and only a firmware update will be necessary (which can be done thru your smartphone). Phigolf is already a retail product being manufactured and sold worldwide.
