Golf Genius Acquires Swing by Swing Golf

SwingU Latest Addition to Portfolio of Golf Genius Consumer Brands   

Wayne, PA, June 4, 2024: Golf Genius announced today that it has acquired Swing by  Swing Golf, Inc., owner of the SwingU golf GPS and scorecard app and the SwingU Coach  performance data platform. SwingU is one of the leading GPS apps used by golfers, and  provides worldwide GPS course maps and scorecards, shot tracking, club  recommendations, “strokes gained” statistics, wind speed, elevation, “plays like” distances,  and SwingU TV, an instruction and training video library to help golfers quickly improve.  Swing by Swing also operates SwingU Coach, an easy-to-use “strokes gained” statistics  platform used by golf coaches to help guide game improvement efforts with their students. 

SwingU will continue to operate under Golf Genius as a high value brand and will be  marketed along with the Golfshot app acquired by Golf Genius earlier this year. SwingU  adds to the growing Golf Genius portfolio of consumer brands, which include, in addition to  Golfshot and now SwingU, Twilight Golf, Waggle and Golf Genius Trip Manager. Golf Genius  is best known for providing cloud-hosted software products and related services directly to  golf facilities and golf associations around the world. The company’s strategy has evolved  to include offering a portfolio of category-leading brands marketed directly to golfers and  golf coaches. With Golfshot and SwingU, Golf Genius will have the largest customer base of  paid subscribers among all suppliers of golf GPS apps. 

According to Mike Zisman, Co-CEO of Golf Genius: “Our tournament management solutions  are now in use by well-over 10,000 golf facilities in more than 60 countries, and Golf Genius  has become a familiar and respected brand for millions of golfers who have played in  millions of Golf Genius-managed events. We are capitalizing on this brand equity to build  interest and drive adoption for apps like SwingU and Golfshot in the direct-to-consumer  channel. Both products are recognized leaders, are highly differentiated, and will be  marketed independently. Ben Addoms, former CEO of Golfshot parent Shotzoom and now  a senior Golf Genius executive, will lead both business units.” 

Charles Cox, CEO of Swing by Swing Golf, commented, “There are more than a half dozen  firms competing in the golf GPS app market, and consolidation is inevitable. Golf Genius  has built a very strong position in the B2B golf software market with excellent products and  a reputation for providing exceptional customer support. We have considered several  merger options and are confident Golf Genius is the right firm to lead the consolidation of  this market. Our team has been acquainted with Golf Genius for many years, and we  believe that their culture aligns well with SwingU. Golf Genius will be a great home for our employees, and our customers will be well-served by Golf Genius’ commitment to  delivering and supporting superb software products.”
