New Advanced Club Data on the SkyTrak+

The SkyTrak+ uses AI as well as both deep and shallow machine learning models—created by a legit rocket scientist!

With help from GOLFTEC PhD researchers, all this combines to bring you accurate numbers! They are also dedicated to improving that accuracy over time.

Check out what Nick Clearwater has to say about these new Club Path features:

Club Path is the direction the club head is moving relative to the target line. This has a major influence on the curve and Side Spin of your shots. An in-to-out path of around 4 degrees is suggested as a starting point for hitting high draws that end up in the fairway or next to the flag.

PRO TIP: Having a strong understanding of the relationship between Face to Path and Face to Target is the first step in eliminating nasty slices and hooks!

Face to Path is the biggest factor in determining which direction your shot curves, as well as how much. It's the difference between Face Angle and Club Path. Mastering a consistent relationship of Face to Path is a major milestone for improving your game.

Face to Target is the direction the club face is pointed to the right or the left of the target at impact. It's most responsible for the Side Angle of your shots. To hit a draw, you want the Face to Target open to curve toward the target. The opposite holds true for hitting fades.

Smash Factor is a ratio that defines how effectively energy is transferred from the club into the ball. The formula is Ball Speed divided by Clubhead Speed. The higher the Smash Factor, the more effective the energy transfer was.
