April 18, 2009 Winner of the Best New Product’ at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando this year was the RoboCup, a new ball return robot designed to play personal caddy on any practice green. When your putts drop into the hole, the US$50 RoboCup automatically shoots the ball right back to you. RoboCup runs on 4 AA batteries and will return the ball up to 14 feet about 15,000 times – more than enough for even the most ardent practice session. Combine it with the RoboCup Caddy Cord, and even missed putts shoot back to you.
Designed exclusively for avid golfers, RoboCup empowers consumers to focus on their practice, saving them time; their backs and bringing the fun back to putting. Designer Keith Foley, also known for his well-engineered G-Clip and Line’M Up creations, says that they anticipate RoboCup taking Fine Tune Golf to a whole new level of well-respected brand within the industry.
