RoboCup Returns to 2010 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando
Press Date: 1/4/2010

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Fine Tune Golf has announced that they will participate in this year’s PGA Merchandise Show, returning with their “Best New Product, 2009” – the RoboCup. 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.

 

RoboCup is the only ball return device designed to work on every practice green with a practice or full-depth cup. When a putt drops into the hole, RoboCup’s innovative design automatically shoots the ball right back. RoboCup runs on 4 AA batteries and will return the ball up to 14 feet or more, depending on green speed. A set of batteries lasts for 12,000 putt returns, making it a longtime golf companion. Combine it with the Caddy Cord, and it’s a golfers personal and portable putt-return caddy, with even missed putts shooting right back.

Since RoboCup’s launch at last year’s PGA Merchandise Show, the company reports:

-RoboCup has been sold to approximately 300 accounts 

-Partnerships have been established with online retailers like Golfsmith.com and TGW.com

-Retail distribution has expanded to include international partners

-Large-scale retailers like PGA Superstores, GolfTown and Edwin Watts are carrying RoboCup

-Fine Tune Golf has fulfilled requests for 150 tour pros and industry professionals

-RoboCup has been conveniently ‘bundled’ with the new Caddy Cord at price of $59.95

-The innovation has differentiated itself from other putting devices

-RoboCup has filled a need with both indoor putting studios and outdoor facilities

-Industry professionals like Tour Pros have continued voicing support for RoboCup

 

“We are optimistic about this year’s PGA Merchandise Show,” says Keith Foley, inventor and co-founder of RoboCup. “It will be great to reconnect face-to-face with those who have supported RoboCup’s entrée into the marketplace,” he adds. “We continue hearing from our partners that the product is moving well and selling itself,” he adds. Foley says that these are the types of reports they expect to continue receiving at the show. 

 

According to My Le Foley, co-founder of Fine Tune Golf, it is the meticulous quality of RoboCup that has brought success throughout the past year. “When Keith develops something, he puts incredible detail into development and quality control, taking enormous pride and ownership,” she says. “That is why RoboCup’s stellar lifeline and technology make it unlike any option out there,” she adds. RoboCup’s inventor Keith Foley is also known for his well-engineered products: the G-Clip and Line-M-Up creations.
