  • Trackman's New Impact Location Feature

    When this was announced this year at PGA Merchandise Show, I was thinking 'how would they do the calculation without looking at the impact'.

    Just like other calculations that many other devices do whether it's carry, spin axis, height, and etc., calculating where the impact location is also something that could be done without really looking at the impact. And some might say: 'it can't be accurate!'

    Well, I found a very interesting article that was posted a while ago on Trackman blog, and after looking at my numbers at both Trackman and HMT, it all made sense to me. With that blog post, although I'm not a mad scientist of any kind, even I can sort of already guess where my impact location would've been by looking at Face to Path, Spin Axis, Launch Angle and Ball Spin now. I'm sure you guys can too.

    Therefore, with my GC2 testing vs Trackman, now I can understand that my GC2 was either faulty or giving me wrong spin axis, because HMT was telling me a whole different story than GC2 (but similar story with Trackman within tolerance). Hope it was a faulty unit. With my HMT comparison vs Trackman, it was within 3 degree tolerances. I would lean more towards on HMT just because it captures the impact, but since the result was negligible I am actually more shocked at Trackman's science. Testing with impact location feature enabled vs HMT will be an interesting one down the road.

    All in all, what a great world we're living in. Science is really the king to answer most of the stuff that we deal everyday. I am amazed at this technology and can't wait to see it by testing it with Dr.Scholes.
