Practice

One way to ensure that you are practicing correctly is to swing in our state-of-the-art simulators that document your progress. Hitting buckets of golf balls on the driving range can leave you asking, "How far did that go, and was I aimed in that direction?". Learning to practice with a system that provides real-time feedback, video analysis, and club face angle at impact can help you achieve better results on the course. Below we offer a description of just some of the features offered at Play-a-Round Golf

Analyze Your Practice 

At Play-a-Round Golf you can actually measure your practice shots. Our golf simulators uniquely capture critical data for each of your practice shots and presents it for your immediate review. After each shot, our golf simulator projects key data points that include:

 

 

Ball Data

  • Total - Total Distance of the shot.
  • Carry - Distance the ball flew in the air.
  • Ball Speed - Speed of the ball as it leaves the face of your club at impact.
  • V (vertical) Launch - Angle of the ball as it leaves the club head at impact.
  • Backspin - Rotations per minute (RPM) measurement of how fast the ball is spinning as a result of impact.
  • Shot Height - The maximum height of the shot.
  • Flight Time - Time in seconds of how long the golf shot was in the air.
  • Smash Factor - The ratio of the club head speed to the ball speed. The closer this value is to 1.50, the more efficient the transfer of energy from the club head to the ball.
  • Sidespin - The quantization of how much the ball is spinning to the right or left causing the ball to draw/fade (100 - 200) or hook/slice (200+).
  • H (horizontal) Launch - The horizontal angle of the ball as it leaves the club head as compared to the target.

 

 

Club Data

  • Club Head Speed - The average amateur golfer has club head speeds closer to 80 and 90 mph. That said, a relatively small increase in club head speed of just five or ten mph can translate to a significant amount of additional kinetic energy that helps the ball travel further, and often on a better trajectory
  • Contact Point - The most overlooked and undervalued aspect for a golfer who’s looking to improve is contact point, meaning where on the face the golf ball is struck.
  • Angle of Attack - is measured relative to the horizon. Shots hit off the ground should have a negative attack angle in order to optimize the trajectory.
  • Club Path - The in-to-out or out-to-in movement of the club head’s geometric center at the time of maximum compression. Club path is the direction the club head is moving (right or left) at impact and is measured relative to the target line.

 

 

Common Swing Faults

  • Hooking - A hook in golf is a shot that curves to the left (for a right handed golfer). This is caused by the clubface being closed to the path through impact.
  • Slicing - A slice is a golf shot the curves to the right (for a right handed golfer). This is caused by the clubface being open to the path at impact.

So, do you know if your fault is with the clubface or the clubpath? Learn which is causing your error in our state-of-the-art golf simulators.
