The next revolution was the introduction of video into the teaching process, notably in the early days by coaches such as David Leadbetter in his famous re-tooling of Nick Faldo’s swing. Video allowed coaches and players to bypass the guesswork that had previously been such a big part of the learning and game maintenance process—the old “dig it out of the dirt” approach—and see what was actually happening in a players swing.
It was a natural progression to be able to verify other “givens” around players performance in regards to what the ball was doing through the air and what the club was doing through impact. When tracking technology, mainly initially developed by the military, started to cross over to other industries this became popular.
Fast forward to 2020 and the technology has gone through the roof. And like all technology as it develops, and competitors arrive, the relative cost becomes more affordable. The result being that in recent years incredibly accurate and easy use Launch Monitors like Flightscopes X3, Mevo, Mevo+ and Skytrack have come within reach of the domestic market.
Most of the current range of Launch Monitors offer multiple driving range experiences, short game and skills testing areas. They also allow golfers to store data, and retrieve it easily, so they can track their progress over time. Then there’s the bevy of course play options. Literally thousands upon thousands of different courses taken from real life or virtually created.
All of these options, which 24/7 Golf carry, can be combined with screens, hitting mats, safety enclosures and projected images to create complete immersive at home practice and play environments for the modern golfer. We’ve also created dedicated packages at various price points, to make it easier for your to find the right solution for you.
It’s the same reason you see hardly any tour pro’s develop the “putting yips” these days. They get their putting numbers checked at the first sign of any issues and nip problems in the bud before they fester to become larger issues.
In fact, whether it’s full swing, short game, or putting related tour players don’t so much fix problems that go wrong anymore, as much as just keep their launch monitor numbers, and thus their games, within parameters they know will spell success for them.
What does this mean at an everyday player level? Well it means that if you’re smart, and get the best launch monitor and practice environment you can afford, you can stop wasting time going around in circles and work on things that really matter. Golf is all about feel, but you need accurate feedback to tell you what your “feels” are producing.
For instance, starting out in golf now as a beginner you can, from day one, with the help of a launch monitor, be monitoring accurately the distances you carry your shots. Thus if you also have a GPS or Range finder, when you go out to play, your not guessing at which club to choose.
At a higher level, improvements are incremental, at times microscopic. For instance if a tour player knows that a certain backswing length, angle of attack, backspin rate, launch angle, maximum height and smash factor with their gap wedge, produces an 80 yard carry, they can repetitively internalise the feel of that swing. The end result being they have a reliable 80 yard shot even under extreme pressure.
