  • Simulator data points

    I have a par 3 pro just picked it up I am getting swing info that is out to in about 8 degrees and face closed 4 or 5 degrees every shot is going right of the target.
    when on the course I hit a fade at best slice to the left would be my miss not many that would go right. Is that data sound correct is there a place I could read about the data I am looking at?

    Club 8 degrees out to in, and face 4 degrees closed result in a ball that starts left of target and fades to the right. (Right handed golfer).

    is this what is happening?

      Out to in (over the top) with a closed face would be a pull hook. Over the top with an open face would be a fade/slice.

      If you're swinging over the top with a closed face at impact, the ball is going exactly where the data says it should (a pull hook). If your normal ball flight on the course is a fade/slice, you're likely coming over the top with an open face at impact (wiping across it). So the swing planes are likely similar, the only difference is the club face position at impact.

        I am sorry but I disagree. If the face is open relative to path the ball wouldn’t hook it would fade.

        Correct. Closed face combined with a closed swing path = pull hook. Open face combined with a closed swing path = pull slice.

        He is a lefty and is getting data that says he's swinging from out to in (which is over the top, or a "closed" path) along with a closed face. So the ball flight he is seeing (pull hook) is correct for the given data. Swing path is starting the ball right and the shut face is sending it even more right with hook spin.

        If the face is open relative to the path, then yes, that ball should try to come back a bit. So you are correct in that regard. I didn't open the data file he posted but it sounded like he was describing a closed path with a closed face.

        Yes a closed path and closed face. But the face was open in relation to the path, even though it was closed relative to the target.

      Is the face closed to the target or the path?

      For LH Player

      If it's closed to the target, ball would start right of the target and fade back towards the target. Pull fade

      If the face is closed to the path, the ball would start right of the target and continue to move away from the target (Draw for LH). Pull Draw/Hook

          I am well-versed in the subtle art of the hook. Happens to be my specialty. It's a gift.

          This is a good resource. There's even a tab near the top for "lefties" which you might find helpful.

            Thanks for the information very helpful surprised that a few degrees make such a huge effect on ball flight
