Revelyst Announces Acquisition of PinSeeker, a Leading Skill-Based Golf Simulator Competition Platform

ANOKA, MN – Revelyst, a collective of world-class maker brands that design and manufacture performance gear and precision technologies and a segment of Vista Outdoor Inc., today announced it has acquired PinSeeker, a Wasserman portfolio company and the leading simulator off-course golf and connectivity app that hosts real-time, virtual, closest-to-the-pin tournaments.

The PinSeeker app enables golfers to compete in contests and challenges with their friends, families and fellow golfers, wherever they are located. The app hosts virtual tournaments, closest-to-the-pin challenges and other contests where participants can play for free or compete for real money, experiencing the thrill of competitive golf with anyone, anywhere. The acquisition allows Foresight Sports to capitalize on strong market demand for competitive tournaments and experiences in off-course golf and will fast-track the evolution of Foresight’s digital game and content platform.

PinSeeker will be integrated into Foresight Sports, the leading maker of golf launch monitors and simulators, in Revelyst’s Precision Sports Technology platform. PinSeeker employees will relocate to San Diego where Revelyst’s Precision Sports Technology platform is based.

“Adding PinSeeker’s one-of-a-kind app to Foresight Sports’ category-leading launch monitors and simulators will help us deliver an unmatched user experience for off-course golfers,” said Eric Nyman, CEO of Revelyst. “Our two Precision Sports Technology platform brands — Foresight Sports and Bushnell Golf — are best-in-class golf brands. The addition of PinSeeker and its team builds our standing in the industry, expands our software offering and provides the resources and know-how to extend our reach in this rapidly growing skill-based gaming category. It reflects Revelyst’s goal of engaging with consumers in more modern and tech-forward ways, both outdoors and virtually.”

Unlike traditional on-course golf, PinSeeker hosts tournaments on golf simulators, giving players instant access to thousands of events and allowing them to compete against golfers worldwide. The app allows players to compete in real-time, view their rankings and competitors, and enjoy even more use from their Falcon or QuadMAX products from Foresight Sports, or other simulator devices.

The acquisition enables Revelyst and Foresight Sports to capitalize on the increasing number of golfers — off-course participation grew 18 percent to 33 million participants in 2023 — and build a world-class game and entertainment experience for golfers who use Foresight Sports simulators. PinSeeker’s revenue models, including tournament and sponsorship income, will allow Revelyst to reinvest in its brands and grow the company’s gaming ecosystem.

“PinSeeker reinforces that Foresight Sports is the undisputed leader in golf technology,” said Jon Watters, Co-President and General Manager of Revelyst’s Precision Sports Technology platform.

“The addition of PinSeeker means our digital ecosystem is poised to reach another level,” said Scott Werbelow, Co-President and General Manager of Revelyst’s Precision Sports Technology platform. “By marrying PinSeeker’s software with Foresight Sports’ hardware and FSX Play ecosystem, we will revolutionize off-course golf.”

Seattle, WA – RADMOR, a pioneer in sustainable golf apparel dedicated to transforming the golf industry through environmental responsibility and style, continues to expand men’s golf lifestyle with today’s unveiling of its latest breakthrough collection of men’s sustainable jeans.

Based on the brand’s popular pant silhouette, the Five-O, RADMOR has created a jean made from a blend of recycled cotton and recycled plastic water bottles, combining premium materials that result in a series of ultra-soft, stylish premium jeans for everyday wear. Crafted from a unique blend of 78% virgin BCI cotton, 10% recycled cotton, 6% recycled Repreve polyester and 2% elastane, the new jeans offer unparalleled comfort with just the right amount of stretch. Available in 30 and 32-inch inseams, the jeans cater to a variety of styles and preferences.

RADMOR Co-founder, Scott Morrison, brings a wealth of experience in the design and development of jeans, having been at the forefront of the denim industry for the past 25 years – having successfully established three premium denim brands: Paper Denim & Cloth; Earnest Sewn; and 3×1 Denim.
“We understand that golf is more than a sport—it’s a way of life,” said Morrison, Co-founder, RADMOR. “Our new line of eco-friendly jeans is designed with our golfer’s lifestyle in mind, offering comfort, flexibility, and style both on and off the course – all thru the lens of sustainability. Whether you’re winding down after your morning round or enjoying a casual evening out, our jeans offer the perfect transition.”

The collection comes in three distinct washes:

  • Rinse Wash: A classic dark denim that gracefully fades over time, embodying the journey of the wearer.
  • 2-Year Wash: The quintessential middle blue denim, perfect for everyday wear and versatility.
  • 5-Year Wash: A lighter hue that tells a story of love and longevity, much like your favorite pair of well-worn jeans.

Priced at $148 MSRP, these premium jeans are a testament to the brand’s dedication to offering a more sustainable choice, with fantastic quality, at great value.
