Many players “assume” that The Trackman combine test is for skilled golfers only. It’s just not true.
Trackman is also used by many amateur players. The device will give them a baseline of where their golf swing is currently located, and as golf swings change throughout the lesson, the numbers on the screen change as well. This way you can tell if the swing change is working or not.
What is a Trackman golf unit?
Trackman technology can be used for many things to improve your golf game.
Many educators use Trackman unit because it allows them to see things that the naked eye simply cannot see. For example, it’s like a doctor using an MRI to see inside a patient.
A person simply cannot see exactly what is happening during a golf swing because it is a three-dimensional movement. In addition, neither does the video camera.
Each unit has two Doppler radars inside that track all aspects of the golf club, the stroke as well as the flight of the ball.
These radars have been used since the 1960s to track missiles
The device can be used both indoors and outdoors to track every aspect of your full swing, pitch, chip and putt.
When using the device indoors, the first 12 feet of ball flight is used to determine ball flight estimates.
On the outside, Trackman is the only technology in the world that tracks the full flight of a golf ball until it lands on the ground.
What is a Trackman harvester?
I like to use blending to set a baseline during a new student’s assessment session.
Once we have a baseline, we can implement our new exercise plan.
By reviewing the combine after changes to the golf swing, we can track the improvements in hitting the ball.
During this session, you will take three shots from each of the following meters, as well as three drivers.
When you’re done, you’ll repeat the same distance for a total of 60 shots.
Distances will start from and include the following…
- 60 yards
- 70 yards
- 80 yards
- 90 yards
- 100 yards
- 120 yards
- 140 yards
- 160 yards
- 180 yards
If these distances are too much for you, don’t panic as they can be adjusted to better suit your game. We’ll talk more about this later in this post.
What other golfers are talking about
Brad Myers, PGA…
What will you learn from the Trackman combine?
Below are a few things you’ll walk away with after completing the TrackMan Combine test.
1. How to improve your golf swing
We will receive current data about the golf club and the way it moves, the collision of the golf club with the ball and what is the actual flight of the ball.
Some of the more important aspects we will get from the data include:
Club face pose
Direction of rotation
And a lot more!
2. Using TrackMan Combine to create exercise plans
We will collect data and together we will develop a schedule and training plan that will allow you to shoot lower scores.
All numbers can be misleading. Let PGA’s Brad Myers gather all the data and come up with easy-to-understand concepts you can implement.
3. Link test will improve course management
Not many players want to talk about it… but… By knowing which distances are strong for you, you can better plan how to play the hole.
Honestly, most students, when they first step on my shirt, don’t know how far each club has hit. Not even close.
After hitting 60 shots, we’ll have reports showing right and left spread, as well as long and short. This will allow us to create a personalized chart of club gaps for you.
Now that we know how far each club travels as well as what their spread is, we can choose better targets to avoid penalty areas or problem areas not only off the tee but also on the green.
Keeping the ball in play and avoiding these areas ensures that we shoot less.
Can we customize the TrackMan bonding test?
Understanding that not all our young and old golfers can hit a 180-yard ball in the air,
For these golfers, we create a combine with shorter distances and the same scoring,
