FlightScope Coaching Software

FlightScope club and ball-tracking data, in conjunction with simultaneous swing video, enable our golf professionals to explain more effectively than with swing video alone. Students experience a more rapid learning curve using FlightScope feedback, combined with swing video. We are now using flightscope for fitting golfers in the proper shafts, loft and all club fitting parameters.

In golf instruction, the use of video swing analysis is well understood and widely used. It is common practice to compare a student's swing video to a reference player, often a PGA Tour Professional. Using video analysis alone provides visual feedback about the action for each player, but adding FlightScope club and ball tracking provides precise quantitative data of the club and ball travel as a result of the golf swing.

Ben Patten, our fitting professional, recently had a student hit some shots on FlightScope. He was trying to figure out why he spun the ball so much and couldn’t get any roll on the fairway. The FlightScope verified that he had excessive spin with his Driver. He was averaging around 3800 rpm’s with a premium golf ball. The club analysis screen showed he was hitting down 8-degrees at impact. We know the best players in the world swing pretty close to level, so we changed around a few things in his setup and changed his perception of what he should be doing with a Driver at impact. After about 10 swings he was down only 2-to-3-degrees. He gained 10 to 15m of carry in a 20-minute fitting session.
