Swing which is just an up and down motion and -- detecting. How far off from up and down you know. What we've been able to do with the move is to take us with the actual swing and swing -- an actual health. Feedback. Of the actual history. And in turn physics and cedar creek -- likely. During the game it gives us. An easy difficulty as Brady -- again -- straight shocked but I'm more difficult settings. -- just like you're playing -- real golf I -- heading you know he gained instant easy and nice. Shot shape but then if you go to -- and -- fight. We've been traditional controllers. You know do much. People can get an up and down motion. The golf. And others that a lot of. There Haitian golf. So -- that we used to are gathering there was through GPS. -- gave us probably. About a foot too cute feet tolerance on -- their collection. With the latest came technology. Highly down a base camp that gives us about six millimeters. Resolution. Then when we get our closer and closer to green complexes and and very detailed areas in the sand sand traps. We can wrap it up to the maximum density of one millimeter. Time to help the workload tremendously and -- pinpoint accuracy. We can bring in house we can converted to Mya par three software program.

I think that played a large part and him. Him being comfortable with us. Replicating their course in the game. We were able to show them. Our computer screen and what -- -- actual resolution. That we gather from the course and how that was gonna transfer into the exact resolution in the so we approach them with the Blazers can string technology. They were very receptive to about. One of the things that. We've looked up from previous years is the way into the crowd surrounds. Greens especially when it comes down to seventeen and eighteen. People are shuffling. Tournament atmosphere and. The -- is now we've got 380 crowd and we got a lot more depth so we're used to seeing meaning.

The moment people see you guys Doug Wilson wow what -- read that we've done on the court side of things but we've also looked at grass which is an interest in London for a number of years we've been talking about. Grass and and it sounds kind of funny blacked. Bears there's been something missing in so what do you wanted to deal was. Bring out those individual blades of grass and so. When you get into the second actually immediately noticed that wow this is treating grass in my swing my club through. I actually see the grass and it's a little pain. But it's funny how much it's become a big thing. For those moments that dance team and alas we've been able to beginning people who appreciate that Rivers.
