LOS ANGELES — X-Golf, the North American indoor golf simulator entertainment concept, today announces a partnership with Max Homa, the PGA TOUR 2019 Wells Fargo Championship winner and Golf Digest dubbed “Twitter Royalty.”
A strategic move for the rapidly growing brand, Homa will join Paige Spiranac as an official ambassador representing X-Golf through a multi-platform approach, including across social media platforms, collateral inclusion and special events.
A California native and Scottsdale resident, Homa won the Wells Fargo Championship for his first PGA TOUR victory in May 2019 with a three-shot victory over Joel Dahmen.
He received a two-year extension of his PGA TOUR card, as well as spots in the PGA Championship and in the 2020 Masters Tournament.
“We’re incredibly excited to launch this partnership with Max in 2021, especially as we continue to grow the brand with year-over-year doubled growth of our venues,” said Ryan D’Arcy, President and CEO of X-Golf America. “His recognition and respect within the golf industry is unmatched and we couldn’t think of a better PGA TOUR professional that fits from a brand alignment perspective. With the Paige Spiranac partnership in 2020 and now Max in 2021, X-Golf is poised to push out some really fun content this year.”
“X-Golf venues are ideal to practice, play and generally have a great time in a safe way,” said PGA TOUR professional Max Homa. “Their technology is the most accurate I’ve seen in the simulator space, especially with the short game and putting capabilities. I’ve never seen anything so realistic and I’m pumped to start sharing content, and of course, roasting some swings.”
X-Golf America’s state-of-the-art indoor golf simulators give players unparalleled accuracy and realism through a combination of camera systems, infrared lasers, impact sensors and advanced gaming software. Their dedicated kiosks offer guests the ultimate golfing entertainment experience with virtual reality gaming, food and beverages, competitions, leagues, golf lessons, memberships, corporate outings, social events and more.
Furthermore, the short game and putting capabilities allows players to fully experience a round from tees to greens with acute accuracy.
X-Golf began developing simulators in Korea in 2005, first launching its American franchise operations in 2016. Since then, they have branched nationally to multiple states, including Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.
The company has successfully opened and maintained 25 franchisees across the country, with year-over-year doubled growth planned for 2021 and beyond.
In addition, X-Golf America will be launching a new connected platform in 2021, integrating its technology and capabilities to all existing venues, personalizing the experience for X-Golf players and allowing them to track their data, develop their game and compete to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences and prizes.
