Ball Flight Data
- Ball launch data
- Club head data
Do you know anything about ball Launch data? When you hit a golf ball there’s various things that can affect the flight of the ball.
- The speed of the ball
- The launch angle
- Side spin on the ball
- Back spin
- total spin
- Spin-tilt axis
- Peak height
- Total distance
Simply put, golfers want to to know simple reasons to explain:
- Why your ball goes all over the place
- Your ball always goes in one direction
- There’s no consistency with where your ball ends up
For golfers who struggle with any of the above problems, you really need to learn about the ball flight laws in golf which determine where your ball is ending up.
How do I hit the ball further? How do I hit the ball straighter? We all want to know the answers to these two questions. But not everyone is prepared to learn what happens at impact when you’re hitting the ball and what’s effecting the ball flight.
And if you think about playing a few rounds of golf, how would you like to reduce your mis hits or bad shots?
The easy answers are, you hit the ball well with great fundamentals and impact positions, so by following our simple process we show you how to build those positions into your game.
There are five laws that influence the flight of a golf ball. These laws are absolutes. They are the physical forces that combine when hitting a golf ball and dictate how it reacts in flight. Understanding these laws helps to explain the answers to the key questions of distance and direction. These laws shouldn’t be confused with the golf swing itself, which are subject to principles.
There are many more golf swing principles than there are laws. Whereas principles vary from teacher to teacher and are changeable over time, laws are fixed, absolute and measurable. So, lets imagine the golf swing is like a business … the backswing is the costs of the business, the through swing is the sales and impact (the most important part) is the profit or bottom line.
The ball in flight
When the ball is in the air, it’s got hidden forces that are affecting how the ball flies.
- Drag (the drag slows the golf ball down in flight)
- Weight (the forces of gravity on the golf ball)
- Lift (what the launch angle is on your shots)
