NBA star Stephen Curry will endorse Full Swing Simulators brand as a part of golf technology deal between the basketball icon and the company. Three-time NBA Champion Stephen Curry has inked a multi-year partnership with San Diego-based sports technology company.
As part of the deal, the company will install its flagship and patented golf simulator technology at Curry’s home later this year. Curry will support the brand through various marketing initiatives. The deal also sees him joining the Full Swing’s all-star roster of professional sports clients including Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods, Jason Day, etc., among few others.
Curry, an avid golfer, is known to be a near-scratch golf player who has played No. 1 on his high school team. “While I play professional basketball full-time, I have a true passion for golf and Full Swing’s incredible technology will allow me to pursue my love for the game year-round,” said Curry. “Full Swing’s product accuracy and reliability provides an unparalleled golf and entertainment experience and will be a great addition to my house to enjoy during the offseason.”
Full Swing’s Pro 2 simulator and patented first-of-its-kind Virtual Green putting technology will be installed in Curry’s home later this year. All Full Swing simulators include their patented dual tracking technology, combining high-speed cameras and infrared light wave technology to provide unmatched swing data and real-time ball feedback.
Virtual Green uses thousands of data pinpoints under each green to allow golfers to practice putts with breaks on one putting surface through automated changing undulations. Virtual Green also features PuttView, which uses slope data to calculate and project a line onto the green, showing users the line of the putt.
Jason Fierro, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Full Swing, said, “Stephen is a once-in-a-generation talent who transcends the game of basketball, and having one of the world’s best athletes opting to associate himself with our company and technology serves as a testament to the credibility, reliability and accuracy of our products.”
