Comparing Swing Data Collection by Launch Monitor

To realistically depict ball flight, certain core data parameters are indispensable.

Core Parameters Measured by All Launch Monitors:
  • Ball Speed
  • Back Spin
  • Side Spin
  • Spin Axis
  • Launch Angles

These metrics form the foundation for understanding the trajectory and behavior of the ball mid-flight, while carry distance is derived from these data points to provide actionable insights into shot performance.

So what makes the overhead launch monitors different?

For golfers who have the time to dig into the data of every swing, these can be useful for refining technique.

 

Uneekor QED, EYE XO and EYE XO2
  • With the use of club stickers, Uneekor's overhead launch monitor lineup allows golfers to access detailed club data metrics for refining their technique. These units are useful for trainers and pros in particular seeking robust analysis into swing mechanics and club performance.
 
Foresight Sports GCHawk and Falcon
  • With the use of club stickers, the GCHawk and Falcon provide an in-depth analysis of club performance.

While not essential for every golfer, Closure Rate refers to the rate at which the clubface closes or rotates during the impact with the ball. It provides insight how effectively they square the clubface at the critical moment of contact. This metric is useful for trainers and professionals in assessing the golfer's ability to control the clubface orientation and achieve desired shot outcomes.

 

Each launch monitor captures a unique set of swing metrics, empowering golfers with valuable insights to enhance their skills and elevate their game to new heights.
