DALLAS, May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Topgolf Media, a division of global sports and entertainment leader Topgolf Entertainment Group, has partnered with Golf Scope to introduce Pro Putt by Topgolf on Oculus Quest. This collaboration combines innovative, virtual reality enhancement technologies, including Golf Scope and Simply Putting, to bring to life the sensation of realistic golf courses and four different Topgolf fan favorite games: Topgolf Classic, Top Pressure, Quick 9 and Quick 9 Pro.
By wearing Oculus Quest headsets and touch controllers equipped with insight tracking, users can swing, putt and play as a single player, with friends, or with players from the Pro Putt by Topgolf community around the world. Developed by Golf Scope, Pro Putt will offer gamers the most virtual fun with a putter in their hand – whether it's to post a course record, play a relaxing round with a friend, sink shots in the Topgolf Putt Lounge or engage in a heated head-to-head battle with the best in the game. Pro Putt joins Topgolf's growing collection of digital games including the leading online golf game World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf.
"Topgolf has done an incredible thing for golf. It has made it fun and approachable and introduced the game to a lot of people that wouldn't otherwise be interested. We're hoping Pro Putt helps even more people find the fun in golf," said Ryan Engle, Golf Scope Founder and CEO. "My dad and I used to play golf every weekend growing up, but recently we've been playing Pro Putt. We've been surprised and amazed by the richness of the shared experience in VR, especially now."
"We are constantly looking for innovative ways to introduce the game of golf and Topgolf to people and embrace new platforms. We are thrilled to partner with Golf Scope to launch the Pro Putt game on Oculus Quest," said President of Topgolf Media, YuChiang Cheng. "This is the perfect time to virtually connect people together to play and have fun, and we are looking forward to expanding the reach of Topgolf's platforms and engaging new audiences through technology."

Additionally, the company's Toptracer ball-tracing technology powers Topgolf venues and driving ranges around the world and has revolutionized how viewers watch major golf tournaments on TV.
