Winston-Salem, NC, September 7, 2016 – SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, is pleased to announce that it has released a new Skills Assessment feature in v2.5 of the SkyTrak Launch Monitor.
“SkyTrak is a small package with a lot of power,” said Andy Allen, SportTrak Managing Director of Golf. “The Skills Assessment is an exciting new feature that adds another element of functionality to SkyTrak by automating a practice routine, reporting tendencies, scoring each shot, and illustrating dispersion circles by target and club. We believe this new tool fundamentally changes the way golfers can now practice.”
The new v2.5 Skills Assessment feature allows golfers to set up to 10 target stations with the ability to set distance and club used for each station. It then automatically progresses through each station and allows you to check your performance and detailed shot history as you go. In addition to capturing the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight, the new Skills Assessment allows you to capture additional shot details including flight time, angle of descent, max height and smash factor (PTI). At the end of your Skills Assessment, you’ll see an overview of your entire session including overall green accuracy, average shot dispersion and average tendency. You will also receive a SkyTrak Dynamic Handicap™ score for each shot and overall using the SkyTrak proprietary scoring system.
“With the SkyTrak v2.5 Skills Assessment, you can really dig in and identify specifics about your strengths and weaknesses based on accuracy, consistency, trends and precision,” added Allen. “Over time you can focus on the weaker areas of your game and lower your handicap, elevating your golf game to a whole new level.”
