TrackMan Launch Monitor Analysis
OVERVIEW OF TRACKMAN
The Kevin Perkins Golf Academy is very excited and proud to be using the TrackMan 4 Dual Radar Launch Monitor Technology to analyze in great detail, our students; full swing, putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play.
Trackman's technology is a portable swing and movement analyzer that basically uses microwaves reflecting from a moving golf club and golf ball. The change in frequency of these waves is what makes it possible for Trackman to track what happens at the very moment of impact between club and ball.
The TrackMan golf radar not only helps map these key data parameters - ball speed, attack angle, club path, face angle, etc. - it also captures the golf swing with a built-in HD video camera and with the use of up to six external cameras.
Trackman's cutting edge technology, utilizes one radar system to track everything the club does before, during, and after impact - from commonly known parameters like Club Path and Face Angle to Swing Direction and Attach Angle. The other radar system tracks the full ball flight - from launch to landing and everything in between; including Launch Angle, Spin Rate and Curvature. It also maps the shot's 3D trajectory in real time, together with all impact and launch information.
The Trackman 4 is also equipped to analyze your putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play.
TrackMan's 4 Dual Radar Technology is a significant tool to enhance our coaching and instruction, and to perform ball and club fitting here at the Kevin Perkins Golf Academy.
Golf practice and player development are going through a period of tremendous change, and technology is a central component in that transformation.
The mapping of swing DNA is now possible, as is the quantification and comparison of swing feel vs. real. Technology also empowers us to monitor granular swing changes over time.
These are just a few, compelling examples how use of the Trackman Launch Monitor may unleash your talent more effectively.
With TrackMan, our academy has tools to jump ahead. From Trackman's groundbreaking club and ball tracking golf radar systems to the best performance enhancing software available in the industry.
The TrackMan numbers are the brain behind it all. All major stakeholders of the game, without exception, use and trust TrackMan numbers for two main reasons: precision and reliability.
Here at the Kevin Perkins Golf Academy, when you take a lesson, or have a ball or club fitting with TrackMan, you will quickly understand why and how we use the TrackMan data in working with you to enhance your performance leading to more enjoyment and fun.
With us, you’ll quickly become an insider of the most revolutionary training tool in the industry.
Trackman records the full trajectory of any shot, from 6 foot pitches to 400 yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with an accuracy of less than 1 foot at 100 yards.
TrackMan also displays the shot’s 3D trajectory together with 30 impact and ball flight parameters in real time (data is delivered within 1 second).
Examples of the full swing impact and ball flight parameters are;
Position of Club and Club Data at Impact:
Club Speed, Attack Angle, Club Path, Low Point, Swing Plane, Face Angle, Face To Path, Dynamic Loft, Swing Direction, and Spin Loft.
Ball Flight Parameters:
Ball Speed, Smash Factor, Launch Angle, Spin Rate, Spin Axis, Height, Carry, Landing Angle, Hang Time, Total Distance, Curve, and Distance From Hole.
The Dual Radar Technology enables even more data to be captured. Due to its focused, high-resolution radar beam, the TrackMan 4 launch monitor provides our academy with the greatest detail and accuracy of the club and ball at the moment of impact.
The amount of detail achieved in the club delivery and ball flight is greatly superior to what is possible through Single Radar Technology.
This advancement provides the perfect foundation for analysis and diagnosis. Conclusive data is delivered in an easy-to-understand format, empowering our staff to excel in our training routines which lead to efficient, repeatable, and impactful changes to performance.
PUTTING AND SHORT GAME
With Trackman, putting has entered a new era of how we practice, analyze and understand this critical part of the game.
Trackman provides groundbreaking data parameters on both club and ball, the next generation of putting intelligence will help our students unleash their full putting potential.
Comparable to your full swing analysis, you can now connect and validate your inner spectrum of feel triggers with accurate, trustable feedback on your putting stroke.
With TrackMan’s performance data available anywhere on our lesson tee here at the Kevin Perkins Golf Academy, we can go any where and switch between putting green, short game area, bunker, and full swing practice tee sessions without losing your focus.
Our TrackMan is our companion when and wherever we choose to work on your game.
Similar to full shots, your putts are now tracked from start to finish, and everything in between.
Knowing your Tempo, Launch Direction, Speed, and Dynamic Loft are some of the most significant influencers on ones putting performance. Add Total Break, Skid, and good green reading, and you will have what it takes to make successful putts, repeatedly.
Besides providing actionable insights, these data points also help eliminate doubt, build confidence, and unleash talent - one stroke at a time.
TrackMan's 4 Dual Doppler radar data points for putting include unique insights on both club and ball, paving the way for improved putting performance.
Putting Data Includes:
Club Speed, Backswing Time, Forward Swing Time, Tempo, Stroke Length and Dynamic Lie.
Launch Direction, Ball Speed, Speed Drop, Roll Speed, Skid Distance, Roll Percentage, Effective Stimp, Side Total, Total Distance, and Total Break.
SYNCHRONIZED VIDEO AND TRACKMAN DATA
With the TrackMan's 4 Dual Doppler Radar system not only maps key data parameters such as - ball speed, attack angle, club path, face angle, etc. - it also captures the golf swing with a built in HD video camera, and with the use of up to six external cameras.
The internal camera and external cameras, produce video and data timed together, for perfect synchrony in time and space. The information we receive is extremely accurate and actionable.
We navigate seamlessly between intuitive data and video dashboards to get the full overview and understanding of any full swing, putting or short game movement. Use of split screen comparisons, a PGA and LPGA tour player library and a telestrator feature, are utilized as well.
The powerful combination of data, video, and overlay graphics that we use here at the academy, has become an indispensable power feature that speeds up the learning curve of all of our students.
Use of the TrackMan 4 Dual Doppler Radar Launch Monitor gives our staff detailed data and video resulting in keen insights to your performance. It serves as a perfect foundation to enhance our analysis of your ball flight and movement of your club and your body.
The data and video are precise, reliable and allows us to dissect and understand the DNA of any given swing, putt or short game motion, resulting in rapid improvement and performance and more enjoyment from the game.
