Impact Height

Impact Offset
The horizontal impact location distance relative to the center of the face.

Dynamic Lie
The angle of the lower portion of the shaft relative to the waterline at impact.

Ball Speed
The speed of the golf ball’s center of gravity immediately after separation from the club face.

Smash Factor
The ratio between the measured ball speed and measured club speed.

Launch Angle
The vertical angle the golf ball takes off at relative to the horizon and measured immediately after separation from the club face.

Spin Rate
The rate of rotation of the golf ball about the imaginary line the golf ball rotates around measured immediately after separation from the club face.

Launch Direction
The horizontal angle the golf ball takes off at relative to the target line and measured immediately after separation from the club face.

Spin Axis
The angle relative to the horizon of the imaginary line that the golf ball rotates around and is measured after separation from the club face.

Height
The maximum height or apex of the trajectory measured relative to the elevation at which the golf ball was launched.

Curve
The horizontal side movement perpendicular from the launch direction to carry side.

Landing Angle
The angle the golf ball lands at relative to the horizon and at a point that has the same elevation as where it was launched.

Carry
The straight-line distance between where the golf ball was launched from and where it crosses a point that has the same elevation.

Side
The perpendicular distance between the target line and where the trajectory crosses a point that has the same elevation as where the golf ball was launched.

Total
The straight-line distance between where the golf ball was launched from and its calculated resting position.

Side Total
The perpendicular distance between the target line and the golf ball’s calculated resting position.

Putting

Club Speed
The speed the club head is traveling immediately prior to impact.

Backswing Time
The time the club head is traveling away from the ball.

Stroke Length
The distance the club head is pulled back from the ball in the backswing.

Forward Swing Time
The time the club head is traveling towards the ball until impact.

Tempo
The Backswing time divided by the Forward swing time.

Dynamic Lie
The angle of the shaft relative to the waterline at impact.

Launch Direction
The angle the ball starts right or left in relation to the target line.

Ball Speed
Initial ball speed immediately after separation from the putter face.

Skid Distance
The distance the ball is bouncing/sliding until it starts to roll.

Roll Speed
Speed at the point where the ball starts to roll.

Speed Drop
The percentage drop in speed from Ball Speed to Roll Speed.

Roll %
The amount of roll on the total putt distance.

Effective Stim
The speed of the individual putt, based on the average roll deceleration.

Side
The total side distance from the target at the time the ball reaches entry speed.

Break
The total side movement from the ball’s launch direction, at the time the ball reaches entry speed.

Distance
The total distance in a straight line from the starting point.

Attack Angle
The up or down movement of the club head’s geometric center at the time of impact

Club Path
The in-to-out or out-to-in movement of the club head’s geometric center at the time of impact

Face Angle
The direction the club face is pointing at the center-point of contact between the club and ball at the time of impact

Face to Path
The angle difference between the reported face angle and club path

Entry Speed Distance
The straight-line distance between where the golf ball was launched from and the point of entry speed (1.68 mph)

Elevation
The height difference from the ball’s starting position to the point of entry speed

Slope %
The average horizontal inclination of the surface

Slope % rise
The average vertical inclination of the surface

Stimp (flat)
The calculation of green’s general speed, based on the average roll deceleration of the individual putt

HOW TO BUILD A CONSISTENT SWING

Are you frustrated you can't get your swing in the position you want or find you can only do it in slow motion?

Well based on this pic a consistent swing doesn't need to look the same therefore shouldn't feel the same either. So what is a consistent swing and what are you actually trying to achieve?

Well we are glad you asked as your golf swing can be measured in the following numbers based on three main movements which are:

Up and Down - Attack angle or low point

Left and right - Swing direction or club path

Back and forth - Club head speed

Now if your golf swing can control these parameters you have a great golf swing! Its not about what a coach or a friend thinks were your swing should be.

Are you open to finding out what your swing numbers are and how you could put a game plan behind it to make it more consistent?

STOP SLICING THE BALL

Want to stop slicing driver?

Simplest way to stop slicing the ball is understand what is causing it and what causes the opposite shot. There are only two variables that causes a slice.

1. Heal Strike

2. Open Club face in relation to the Path the club is swinging on.

Therefore if you can hit the opposite shot which is a hook, all you need 

1. Toe Strike

2. Closed Club face in relation to Path the club is swinging on.

Final step is to correct the Path to get the ball to finish more on target.

Would you like the opportunity to measure you impact location and face to path value to know what is causing your slice?

From here have a game plan to fix it?
