TOUR LEVEL ACCURACY

WHAT WE MEASURE

In partnership with Foresight Sports, the Bushnell Golf Launch Pro brings pro-grade technology to the masses. We measure what matters, and we do it with the most accuracy and consistency of any personal launch monitor. Launch Pro provides exact carry distance, clubhead speed, launch and spin. When you know your numbers and measure what matters most, you can take your practice sessions and performance on the course to the next level.


HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

The Bushnell Launch Pro brings Tour-level performance and accuracy to a new level. Tour Pros and coaches have learned you have to know what is happening at impact to improve your game. Unlike radar-based systems that set up behind the golfer and rely on algorithms to guess what happened at impact, the Bushnell Launch Pro uses a high-speed camera-based system to capture every detail at impact. The result is the most accurate information available. Remember this - see impact and see your game improve.

CAMERA-BASED


BALL LAUNCH DATA

Ball launch data is measured by capturing images of the ball to model it in real time, and comparing it to the next captured image to determine exactly what the ball is doing post-impact. Here are the Launch Pro's key club and ball performance metrics we measure.

CARRY DISTANCE

The amount of distance the ball travels through the air.

BALL SPEED

The measurement of the golf ball’s velocity just after impact. Ball speed is the main component in generating distance.

TOTAL SPIN

The amount of total spin created around the tilt axis is expressed as total spin. This will determine the curve and lift of the shot.

VERTICAL LAUNCH ANGLE

Commonly referred to as "launch angle" for short, this metric is the initial vertical angle of ascent relative to the ground plane measured in degrees. The launch angle, combined with ball spin and speed, will determine the ball's carry and total distance.

HORIZONTAL LAUNCH ANGLE

Also know as "Azimuth," side angle, or deviation angle, it's the initial horizontal angel relative to the target line. Horizontal launch angle, combined with side spin, will determine the final ball position range relative to the target line.

SPIN TILT AXIS*

One of the most important pieces of data measure is spin-tilt axis. The spin-tilt axis is the axis that the golf ball rotates around to create shot curvature and lift.

BACK SPIN*

A component of total spin that defines ball lift and trajectory.

SIDE SPIN*

A component of total spin that defines ball curvature or shot shape; related to the spin-tilt axis.


CLUB DATA

The Launch Pro doesn't just look at the ball, but place one of the included markers to the face of your club to get accurate and consistent club data previously only attainable at much higher price points.

CLUB HEAD SPEED

The velocity at which the head travels, measured just prior to ball contact.

SMASH FACTOR

Smash Factor, also know as Efficiency, is the ratio between club head and golf ball velocities.

CLUB PATH*

The swing path measured in a horizontal plane relative to the target line. This data point will tell you if the club was moving from inside-out, outside-in, or perfectly down the line.

ANGLE OF ATTACK*

The descending or ascending path of the club head, measured in degrees. A positive number is hitting up on the ball and a negative number is hitting down on the ball.
