Your golf swing is a circle. The clubhead moves on a circle around your body. If you can imagine a large hulahoop around your body this will give you a visual of where the clubhead is traveling throughout your swing. It is evident in my research that as the club moves toward the ground it is moving down and out, bottoms out, then moves in and up. So what? Well, if your hulahoop is aimed in the wrong direction you will have a hard time hitting a straight golf shot. All you have to do is aim your hula hoop in the correct direction and couple that with a clubface that matches it and voila. A straight golf shot. Sounds easy right?

Good News! The Flightscope has arrived. I will be using this radar launch monitor in my teaching and club fitting. This is the top of the line when it comes to launch monitors. Because it uses radar, the machine measures what the ball is doing in the air and until it stops. No guesswork! Other launch monitors you see at places like PGA Superstore use monitors that make a calculated guess on what the ball will do after you hit it into the net. Not accurate at all. Just a calculation. The Flightscope however, is the most accurate launch monitor on the market along with the Trackman. Sometimes video cameras can be misleading when looking at a students swing. But with the Flightscope and the use of high speed video it will make my job easier and more fun. Come by and check it out. It is really cool!
