1. Dial In Your Distances
One of the main ingredients for succes on the golf course is distance control. Without it, hitting your targets accurately and consistently is a crapshoot. Hitting balls at the range can certainly help, but all to often the bucket of mystery you get to practice with is not on par with the balls you hit on the course. Plus you can't always see where the ball lands.
Of course, getting in more golf games will eventually give you a history of experience that, over time, can help you understand how you hit your clubs. But how practical is that?
What if there was a way to practice whenever and wherever you want, allowing you to establish a consistent understanding of your swing and how you swing with each club?
This is where the benefits of a golf launch monitor come in. By consistently hitting balls on a launch monitor, you can get acquainted with your bag in a way that you can't on the course or even at the driving range. You can track the carry each club provides when hit well. Plus, these days, launch monitors come with companion apps that allow you to see your stats, often in a variety of ways. You'll be able to save your shot data, and many of these devices allow you to record you shot and give you data overlay. The FlightScope Mevo, the Rapsodo, the Garmin Approach R10, and the Swing Caddie SC300i do all of these things remarkably well—for under $600!
All of this can help your performance by removing the guesswork in picking clubs on the course. And up goes your confidence.
