Despite having access to some important launch monitor data, Hartmann warned to not get into “number chasing.”
“We can explain (to our students) what they’re working on and why these numbers are getting better, and they can use that feedback even more than we can for practice,” Hartmann said. “When you’re at the range, you’re basing everything basically on ball flight and aim and all that.
“It’s nice to have the Trackman to tell you what the real story is in your golf swing.”
Trackman itself confirms a lot of what Hartmann said in this blog post. They list face angle, club path, impact location, attack angle, low point and carry as six numbers all amateur golfers should know.
How an Experienced Golfer Can Improve Their Swing
For a more experienced golfer who is looking to take that difficult next step, Hartmann said it’s typically a simpler fix.
“From being a better player, they have a better grasp of what the numbers are actually saying to them,” Hartmann said. “You have the tour guys with the coaches there basically making sure they are aimed right and they’re aligned right, so they have the confidence to hit a shot where they think it is going.”
How Our Golf Expert Uses the Trackman Launch Monitor
Hartmann said that BCC purchased golf enclosures and impact screens through Carl’s Place because of the DIY option.
“When we bought one for the golf shop, we were blown away with how nice it looked and how easy it was to put together, so we had to buy two more of them and it worked out great,” Hartmann said. “(Carl’s Place) offers great products that work … Your price is good.”
Hartmann said they chose the Trackman launch monitors because they wanted the best and most accurate on the market since they are using it for teaching. However, he said there are so many great options now.
“(Carl’s Place) has products that seem just as good. You can get some affordable stuff. It all just depends on your space and what you have,” Hartmann said.
Make sure you buy a launch monitor that has those important golf swing metrics.
“If you get something that shows you ball flight and can keep you swinging in the winter, it’s going to help you out,” Hartmann said.
