Ball Flight Analysis

Accurate analysis of your ball flight is easy with the FlightScope applications and

All FlightScope applications such as Skills and VX2 will provide you with a detailed set of data parameters for the most accurate 3D analysis of your ball trajectory, complimented by statistics on ball flight performance.

By tracking all ball flight parameters by club, by distance, and over time, users can get a complete view of their performance and progression.

Compare your results to PGA professionals, or a variety of MyFlightScope user demographics to see how your data stats compare to other golfers worldwide.

Ball Speed

Launch speed of the golf ball. Ball speed has the biggest effect on carry distance. Centeredness of impact and an increase in club speed will ensure a higher ball speed.

Vertical Launch Angle

Angle at which the golf ball is launched relative to the horizon of the radar. Launch angle will influence the shot height and is mostly determined by the dynamic loft and angle of attack.

Horizontal Launch Angle

Direction in which the golf ball gets launched relative to the radar’s target line. Club face angle will have the biggest effect on the horizontal launch angle of the ball.

Vertical Descent Angle

Angle at which the ball approaches the landing area. A lower descent angle will increase distance with a driver, and a steeper descent angle will give a player more stopping power on the green with an iron.

Smash Factor

The energy transfer ratio from club to ball as a result of impact position on the club face. Centered impact will improve smash factor for optimal ball speeds.

Spin Rate

Number of rotations per minute of the ball at launch. A higher spin loft and higher friction will increase the spin rate of the ball.

Spin Axis

Amount of axis tilt on the ball to determine the amount of curvature in the ball flight. A function of the delta between club face angle and club path.

Carry Distance

Landing distance of the ball from the tee. Ball speed, spin rate, and vertical launch angle are all factors that will determine the carry distance.

Roll Distance

Amount of roll from carry distance to final position of the ball. Lower spin rate and lower launch angle will increase the amount of roll on the surface.

Total Distance

Final position of the ball on the ground from the tee.

Lateral Landing

Distance of the ball’s impact point measured perpendicular to the target line.

Apex Height

Maximum height of the ball trajectory.

Flight Time

Amount of time the ball spends in the air from time of club impact to initial ground impact, measured in seconds.

Shot Dispersion

Grouping of the landing positions of shots with the selected club showing forward and lateral deviation of that cluster of shots.
