Data Points dictionary

Technology has become a game-changer in the golf world, and our Launch monitors are the latest revolution in golf equipment, and they have taken center stage, offering players and coaches unparalleled insights and information into the intricacies of ball flight and club path.

Our Launch Monitors go beyond mere swing analysis, capturing critical data points that shape the trajectory of a golf ball.

It does not matter if you are begginner, intermediate or pro. Ypu have the possibility to unravel the mystery behind the data points measure, shedding light on the vital elements that affect every golfer to improve the game.

From spin rates and launch angles to club path and attack angles, understanding these data points will help you for optimizing performance, refining technique, and ultimately achieving golfing excellence.

Join us as we dive into the depths of this technology, exploring the fascinating world of ball flight and club path data points measured by our launch monitors.

Angle of attack
 
Upward or downward path of the club at impact.
Often downward with irons.
Sometimes upward with longer clubs.
__________________________________________
Apex height
Maximum height the ball reaches during flight.
__________________________________________
Back spin rate
Rate at which the ball is spinning backwards.
Measured in RPMs.
__________________________________________
Ball speed
Velocity of the golf ball just after impact.
Commonly measured in MPH.
PGA Tour driver average: 168mph.
__________________________________________
Carry distance
Distance traveled in the air.
VERY important to know this with each of your clubs.
__________________________________________
Club face angle
Angle the club face is pointing at impact relative to target.
Indicates where the ball would start.
__________________________________________
Club path
Swing path of the club immediately before and after impact.
__________________________________________
Clubhead speed
Velocity of the club at impact.
Commonly measured in MPH.
__________________________________________
Dynamic loft
Delivered loft of the clubface at impact.
This is often less than the loft of the club.
__________________________________________
Flight time
Amount of time elapsed during ballflight.
Sometimes referred to as hangtime.
__________________________________________
Impact location
Location of the club face that the ball was struck.
__________________________________________
Launch angle
Angle of ascent of the ball from the ground.
__________________________________________
Side spin rate
Rate at which the ball is spinning horizontally.
Measured in RPMs.
__________________________________________
Smash factor
Club Speed divided by Ball Speed.
1.5 is known to be optimal.
Measures the efficiency of the strike.
__________________________________________
Spin axis
Axis of the balls rotation.
Combines back spin and side spin.
