  • Ball speed?? On GC2 for driver swing

    All my shots seem to be very accurate on ball speed when not teed up. My driver swing ball speed seems a little low. My swing speed is average about 110 to 112 but ball speed never gets past 160 average about 155 to 158. Anything I should check or is this normal? Is it because the ball is on a tee? Thanks

    From this article: https://golftips.golfweek.com/swing-...peed-1637.html

    Quote:
    In general, the speed of the golf ball should be 1.5 times that of the speed of the swing. For the golfer whose swing speed is 100 mph, the speed of the ball as it leaves the clubface should be 150 mph. However, increasing club speed may not necessarily lead to an increase in ball speed.

    GC2 is pretty good technology. Don't be greedy!

    Merry Christmas!

      Is that hmt swing speed? My guess is that you are catching it high on the face. Check impact location. You lose some ball speed when it’s high on the face. You should pick up ball speed and spin if it’s slightly lower

      My ball speed is too low too. Let me know how to fix it. :-)

        Even when I get a really great carry of 275 or 280 the ball speed still never breaks 160

          Check the impact location speed (it an option in the hmt menu on the lcd). I have broken 160 with similar club speeds. In the 112-115 range. I have seen162-167 ball speed. That being said, swing speed on hmt is higher than Trackman. I think that contributes to Trackman’s 1.51 and 1.52 smash factors you can see. HMT I never sniff 1.50 unless it’s an obvious misread.
