'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Work on your swing from home with this golf simulator deal.


Taking a break from the courses for the winter, or even sitting around in the spring or summer between matches — these are all great times to work on your golf game and have fun. The PhiGolf World Tour Edition is a simulator that comes with a special sensor and simulations of over 38,000 actual, real golf courses to play. This open-box edition is on sale for $150 (reg. $249) during a limited-time Presidents' Day price drop. 

This advanced and well-loved at-home golf simulator comes with a range of neat features and ways you can work on your game. The 38,000+ golf courses included with this simulator include country clubs and city link courses. The weighted training stick that you use to swing and play these rounds comes with a built-in weighted mechanism, and it's designed to mimic the feeling of swinging a full-length golf club and hitting a physical ball in real life. 

Phigolf World Tour not only makes it easy to work on your swing from home, but it also gives you a chance to connect with other golfers. With online play, you can compete and get lost in the fun of a round with similar social benefits as heading to an actual course. 

Read up to learn more about how the PhiGolf World Tour simulator works. The simple breakdown is that the weighted trainer comes with a pocket-sized swing analyzer with a nine-axis motion sensor that connects to the PhiGolf simulator app via Bluetooth. You can display the app on your TV with phone monitoring via Apple TV, Chromecast, or an HDMI cable.
