Swing Studio Technology
Based on Doppler radar, TrackMan is a technology that allows us to measure, in realtime, what the golf club and golf ball are doing in time and 3 dimensional space.
When a golfer hits a shot, TrackMan generates a unique data set – 21 specific measurements that accurately identify the impact and ball flight conditions for that shot. All club face, swing and ball-flight data – from club-speed and hang-time to shot dispersion – are measured and recorded for illustrative and comparative purposes.
TrackMan is the first of its kind to measure the complete path of any shot, ranging from short pitches to 400-yard drives, pinpointing a golf ball’s landing position to within 1 foot for every 100 yards of travel.
TrackMan has become the industry standard for the USGA, R&A and the PGA Tour for golf club and golf ball performance measurement.
All this data along with videos of the swing can be emailed to the pupil for their future reference.
10 Important Trackman Terms
- Angle of Attack – the up or down directional travel of the centre of gravity of the club head during the impact interval.
- Swing Direction – the overall horizontal direction of the golf swing in relation to the target line at the lowest point of the swing arc. Be aware this is almost never the point of impact.
- Club Path – the 3 dimensional travel of the centre of gravity of the club head during the impact interval.
- Face Angle – the horizontal position of the club face in relation to the target line at the point of maximum deformation of the golf ball.
- Dynamic Loft – the amount of loft presented at the point of maximum deformation of the golf ball. This is the amount of loft that is directly responsible for the launch and spin characteristics of the shot.
- Spin Loft – the 3 dimensional difference between dynamic loft and angle of attack. This is also known as the D Plane.
- Spin Axis – the orientation of the horizontal axis on which the golf ball is spinning.
- Club head Speed – the velocity of the centre of gravity of the club head at the moment just prior to impact.
- Vertical Swing Plane – the angle of the club swing path measured from hip-height to hip-height.
- Smash Factor – simply, the ratio of ball speed to club head speed.
