Proven to be the most accurate 3D tracking radar

It’s easy to understand why the majority of PGA Professionals these days are using FlightScope. One word says it all – accuracy.

What aspects are tracked during your lesson?

SMASH FACTOR

Smash factor is ball speed divided by club speed

Smash Factor relates to the amount of energy transferred from the club head to the golf ball.​

The higher the smash factor the better the energy transfer.​

SPIN RATE

Spin Rate is the amount of spin on the golf ball after impact

Spin rate has a major influence on the height and distance of a shot. Spin rate is one of the least appreciated numbers, especially in windy conditions.​

LAUNCH ANGLE

Launch Angle is the angle the ball takes off at relative to the ground.

Launch angle is highly correlated to dynamic loft. Launch angle will always be a little less than dynamic loft, but will have a similar value.

CARRY

Carry is the distance the ball flies through the air

An important thing to know about carry is that the value is given for a landing area that is the same height as where the ball is hit from. Then the golfer can adjust for uphill and downhill shots on the course.

BALL SPEED

Ball Speed is the speed of the golf ball immediately after impact

Ball speed is created by club speed and impact. Bad impact such as shots hit on the toe or heel will reduce the potential ball speed

CLUB SPEED

Club Speed determines a golfer’s potential distance

Club Speed is the speed the club head is traveling immediately prior to impact. More club speed equals more potential distance.

ATTACK ANGLE

Attack Angle is the direction the club head is moving (up or down) at impact.

Shots hit off the ground should have a negative attack angle in order to create “ball first” contact.However, golfers with slower club speeds should be careful not to hit too much down (negative attack angle) with their irons.

DYNAMIC LOFT

Dynamic Loft is the amount of loft on the club face at impact.

The golfer’s attack angle, how the shaft bends, how the golfer releases the club head, whether the club face is open or closed to the club path, and where the ball makes contact on the club face can all impact the dynamic loft.

FACE ANGLE

Face Angle is the direction the club face is pointed (right or left) at impact. after impact

Most golfers refer to this as having an “open” or “closed” club face. A positive value means the club face is pointed to the right of the target at impact (“open” for a right-handed golfer) and a negative value means the club face is pointed to the left of the target (“closed” for a right-handed golfer).

CLUB PATH

Club Path is the direction the club head is moving (right or left) at impact.

Most golfers relate this number to hitting the ball “in-to-out” or “out-to-in”.A positive value means the club is moving to the right of the target at impact (“in-to-out” for a right-handed golfer) and a negative value means it is moving to the left of the target (“out-to-in” for a right-handed golfer).
