He helped rebel forces defeat a evil empire bent on a galactic destruction.

And warmed hearts.

But as far as his chip shot goes, he was truly disappointing.

Making him conspicuously less valuable than the RoboGolfPro, a highly technical doohickey now helping to perfect your golf game at Pebble Beach Golf Academy & Practice Facility.

This is the droid you’re looking for. If you want to improve your golf swing, that is. It’s a fairly large apparatus stuck to a wall with its own driving range. And robotic arms that attach to your club. So every time you swing, it can go ahead and do a whole bunch of nerd stuff.

Mainly, it will record your movements and analyze your errors, showing you where your swing diverges from the ideal on a split-screen monitor. It will guide you through micro-adjustments on the spot. So that you can experience what a perfect swing actually feels like.

Spend enough time doing this kind of thing with RoboGolfPro, and that same perfect swing will start jiving with your muscles memory. Soon, you’ll notice gains at the tee. And drive balls longer and more accurately. It can even help you out on the green. And maybe someday tackle an evil empire.

Should one arise.
