- Swings are filmed from 2 camera angles in high speed using V1 Pro software to analyze, compare, and improve fundamental positions and motion. Lesson videos are sent electronically and can be viewed and stored on your computer or mobile device.
- FlightScope launch monitor is a doppler tracking device that provides 3D data to assess what is occurring with the club and ball flight. This is unparalleled for being able to measure and track changes and adjustments to swing plane, club path, club face, spin rate, launch angle, distance, etc. And it’s the most accurate way to fit golfers for clubs.
