TrackMan Golf Launch Monitor – Instant Feedback Helping Players

The TrackMan golf launch monitor is showing why it is simply the best launch monitor on the market. My golf pro out in Los Angeles, Steve Pratt (you can read about him on his site http://www.hititlonger.com) has just acquired one, and he has told me some amazing stories already about how his students are benefiting from using the TrackMan.

The TrackMan Pro is great for both club fitting and analysis as well as for improving the swing. In the hands of an expert like Steve he is able to watch your shots and then combine that with the TrackMan data to get a handle on what your swing is doing. He can use the numbers to help you understand what is happening. If you are working on your swing he can give you direction on how to tweak the numbers in the data you are getting and see how it improves results. For club analysis it is amazing to see what two different drivers do when a similar swing is put on a ball, driver optimization is worth it. Steve has done work on clubs and swings with quite amazing results already and over time I think it will become apparent that this is the best way to improve your equipment AND your swing.

Steve had one of his students test golf drivers. Steve is a big fan of the Geek driver (a brand used by a lot of golfers who compete in long drive events) and has been looking at how the Geek stacks up against so of the name brand drivers. One of his students hit the ball 30+ yards father with the same swing speed using the Geek DCT (Dot Com This) versus his Taylor Made R9. The two clubs had similar loft 9.5 for the R9 and 9.0 for the Geek. This is just one example of many he has seen showing the value of optimizing your driver. 30+ yards with the same swing is simply a must for anyone! He has had a number of results like this in a short time with his students.

He has had similar success on the teaching end of using the TrackMan Pro. He is able to give students insights with the TrackMan numbers that help them picture and trust what needs to be done. When an optimal number for a key stat on the TrackMan is asked for they can feel their way to the number with instant feedback coming on every swing. No guessing any more. Or not quite believing what the pro is telling them. People are fairly quickly finding their way to the good numbers and really getting a feel for how to improve their swing. The instruction makes more sense and the feedback from the data really helps. Of course you need an expert like Steve still as he deciphers the numbers and gives you swing instruction to help you improve the data, and thus your swing. Simply awesome, very cool, and it works!

I’ll be getting out to LA soon and can’t wait to work with Steve AND the TrackMan to get a taste of all this good stuff that is going on out there.

Trackman Golf Launch Monitor Available In Southern California

If you play golf in Southern California you now have a place to try out the state of the art Trackman golf launch monitor. Golf pro Steve Pratt (www.hititlonger.com) is now offering lessons, practice sessions and club fittings using the most accurate launch monitor on the market.

Most people don’t realize just how valuable an accurate golf launch monitor can be for not only club fitting, but alsofor improving your swing. The Trackman Pro golf launch monitor is simply light years ahead of the competition.

Trackman Video Software Interface

With a new video software program which integrates trackman stats and visuals directly into swing videos the Trackman Pro has, in my opinion, become the ultimate golf lesson teaching aid. The Trackman provides detailed analysis of all aspects of your swing and ball flight. With the help of a top pro like Steve you can make corrections and directly see the improvements as you “fix” the numbers that Trackman is providing. There is ALWAYS an optimal swing, and Trackman, in the hands of a good pro, can lead you to it. This is why Steve has decided it is a must, and he want the local golfers to have the same technology to help them that all the top tour pros have access to.

If you don’t think you know about Trackman, you have probably seen it in action without knowing it. On many, maybe all, PGA Tour telecast you can see the Trackman in action giving player driving stats and cool visual replays of ball flights. These are all provided to the PGA by the Trackman Pro and its software interfaces.

Often when we work on our swings or take lesson we think we know what is happening, or what is wrong, but often there is a certain level of uncertainty too. When we try to correct our mistakes we think we make drastic changes, but the pro is still not satisfied. With the Trackman golf monitor being used during your lessons you will know exactly what you actually do in your swing. When you can effectively change the numbers of incorrect readings regarding your swing, you KNOW WITH CERTAINTY that you are correcting the problem. Let’s say for example your angle of attack is downward with your driver. We now know this can cost lots of distance and is not optimal. With the Trackman monitoring every swing you can start to see when you are changing to an upward angle of attack. You will also see how this affects your ball flight and distance. It is truly amazing to see and will help anyone trying to improve. As one top 100 teaching pro said recently, “Practicing without the Trackman seems like a waste of time to me now”. He feels that it helps him that much to have accurate data regarding his swings.

As time goes on I will be passing on as much information on all the things Steve learns using the Trackman with his students. This should be a fun journey. I can’t wait until I can get out for a golf lesson in Los Angeles with Steve and see my numbers and start to improve my own swing with the Trackman golf launch monitor.
