Introducing trackman ii 150x150

Golfers need every advantage they can get to lower their scores, and a properly fit set of clubs is a great starting point. That’s where Old Palm’s TrackMan golf radar system excels. It’s just one of many advanced technologies in our Golf Studio that helps our members play their best. Using manufacturer demo products and TrackMan, we can fit our members’ golf clubs to a tee. The technology allows them to watch the trajectories of their shots in 3D, so elements such as the clubface, loft and lie can be fine-tuned accordingly. The technology also accurately tracks and analyzes the golf club’s plane and attack angle, providing easy-to-understand quantitative results about the ball’s trajectory, height, hang time, spin and how far it carried in the air. Plus, seeing the flight of golf shots in color just looks cool. You may have seen the technology in action, as TrackMan is used in PGA Tour golf tournaments to illustrate the ball’s flight, from impact to landing, so viewers can easily see how well—or how poorly—the shot was struck. “TrackMan greatly enhances the club-fitting process,” explains Bud Taylor, Old Palm Golf Club’s Director of Golf. “By looking at the various numbers that TrackMan provides, we can fine-tune the different golf club elements to maximize the performance of our members.”
