“deWiz is the perfect example of how technology can help players improve their golf game - at all levels,” said Jesper Kärrbrink, new chairman of deWiz Golf. “Artificial intelligence, data collection and motion sensors have been used for a long time to help elite athletes improve their performance. And what's really fascinating about deWiz is how it delivers this high-tech approach at my level, as a dedicated amateur golfer, through a wearable device that helps me to improve my game anywhere, whether I'm on the course, on the range or practicing on my swing at home.”
Today, golfers in the EU, North America and South Korea can buy deWiz and the company plans to expand with new markets in 2022, including Japan, Australia and South Africa.

These unique deWiz data points provide measurable values that any avid golfer, professional teacher or world-class player can use to effectively refine their swing. As a Swedish developed and produced product, deWiz is focused on its mission to help golfers around the world increase their enjoyment of the game through innovative technology that increases their pace of learning.
