However, the Tittle X is one of the few simulators in this price category that promotes the option to hit real golf balls is available if you are prepared to set up an impact net or screen.

Positioning

For accuracy, the sensor is placed as low as possible to be part of the physical motion. Tittle X is attached below the grip to obtain the most accurate data capture.

Use real golf balls

Unlike most of its serious competitors, Tittle X encourages the use of real golf balls for an authentic experience.

Phigolf WGT Edition Golf Simulator

It provides feedback on data points such as distance, club speed, spin, tempo, and even clubface.

Pros

  • Can play against golfers globally
  • Easy to set up

Cons

  • Lacks some in the accuracy department

The Phigolf is a compact and portable mobile simulator game that can be used indoors or outdoors.

Similar to the Tittle X, the Phigolf simulator uses a multi-axis sensor that attaches to a club or the included swing stick.

Unlike the Tittle X though, Phigolf does not promote the use of real golf balls but rather foam or plastic balls when using the swing stick.

To hit real golf balls it is recommended that you use the multi-axis sensor on your clubs. However, the use of real golf balls is likely to interfere with the results. 

Another difference between Phigolf and Tittle X is the software that they use. Phigolf integrates with WGT (World Golf Tour) and is run entirely from an iOS or Android mobile device. Tittle X integrates with E6 Connect which is not available on Mac and Android yet.

Although the package includes a swing stick, you can use your clubs, but it will require you to move the sensor every time you change clubs.

Verdict

Phigolf and Tittle X are very similar and each offers some unique features with Tittle X more comfortable to hit real golf balls for a more authentic experience while Phigolf offers a wider variety of software to use.

Our preference is the Tittle X due to the more authentic experience of hitting real golf balls. While it is possible with Phigolf, it is not recommended as it interferes with the data feedback.
