Together with world-class putting coach Jong-hwan Choi, VRotein Inc. planned products for golf putting lessons and developed self-developed technologies, resulting in the current TOURPUTT that combines AR, Big data, and AI deep-learning. Officially launched at the Maekyung Golf Expo at Seoul in May 2022 after a prototype in 2020, the tour putt has been introduced at about 50 golf driving ranges and academies nationwide, and has also begun to enter the world, starting with Japan and Singapore.
What is TOURPUTT:
TOURPUTT is a putting simulator developed with domestic South Korean technology, displaying various training elements on a green with a projector. A sensor tracks the ball on the green and collects putting data. Coach Jong-hwan Choi used it to coach professional golfers, analyzing success rates by using breaking lines and distance and tracking speed trends.
