Club and Swing Analysis
Measuring and understanding your club parameters at impact is essential in eliminating the guess work from swing analysis to accelerate your improvement as a golfer.
FlightScope applications such as Skills and VX2 provide detailed club and swing analysis tools, including side-by-side video and data analysis to help you make the improvements needed to better your golf game.
By reporting these stats for your driving, approach and short game, the FlightScope applications paired with MyFlightScope.com is an essential tool for player benchmarking and skills improvement.
Club SpeedClub head speed measured on the sweet spot at impact with the ball. Club speed has a direct influence on the ball speed, if struck on the club face center.
Club Speed ProfileSpeed of the club head’s sweet spot away from the radar, measured pre and post impact with the ball. From the speed profile, a player can determine swing speed consistency, energy transfer efficiency, and proper club extension post impact.
Club Acceleration ProfileAcceleration of the club head’s sweet spot away from the radar, measured pre and post impact with the ball. The acceleration profile will indicate the rate of closure of the club head due to shaft bend and club release by the golfer.
Face AngleClub face angle relative to the radar’s target line, calculated at the moment of separation with the ball. Face angle will influence the direction in which the ball starts relative to the radar’s target line.
Face to PathClub face angle relative to the club path, calculated at the moment of separation with the ball. Face to path will tilt the spin axis if impact occurs on the club face center.
Dynamic loftLoft of the club at separation with the ball. Dynamic loft influences the launch of the ball, and is a result of the static loft of the club, shaft bend at impact, angle of attack into the ball, and the amount of forward press a player has at impact.
Angle of AttackThe angle at which the club head’s sweet spot approaches the ball, measured at impact with the ball and relative to the horizon of the radar. Angle of attack will have an influence on the ball’s launch angle.
Club PathThe direction of the club head sweet spot relative to the radar's target line. Path is influenced by a player's angle of attack, horizontal swing plane and vertical swing plane.
Spin LoftThe contribution to ball spin as a result of the affective loft on the club face presented to the ball during impact, which is approximately defined by the difference between the 3D angle of attack and 3D dynamic loft of the club at impact.
Horizontal Swing PlaneDirection of the club’s sweet spot relative to the radar’s target line, measured at the lowest point in the swing.
Vertical Swing PlaneAngle of the club’s sweet spot relative to the ground, measured at the lowest point in the swing.
