Winston-Salem, NC, April 21, 2017 – SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, is pleased to announce the release of v2.6 of the SkyTrak app, including bag mapping, overlaid dispersion circles on the practice range, and a camera offset feature.
“We have a passion for helping golfers improve their game,” said Andy Allen, SportTrak Managing Director of Golf. “In v2.6, we’ve expanded our game improvement section to include a new bag mapping feature that helps golfers get the right clubs in their bag.”
With this feature, users can keep track of the number of clubs, the number of shots with each club, the number of shots they want to keep, and the target gap distance and gap tolerance between each club. Just like the Skills Assessment, everything is easily set up from the start so users can focus on hitting their best shots during practice sessions. The software provides step by step directions until every club has been hit. Afterwards, key stats are reviewed, including the average distance of each club.
In addition to bag mapping, v2.6 allows users to overlay dispersion circles on the practice range. The color of these circles is tied to the tracer color of each club and they are created once 3 shots are recorded with the same club. This information can also be viewed in the shot history table.
Another feature of v2.6 is the ability to offset the camera in the newly revised settings menu under camera views. What this means is that users can now adjust where the ball launches on the screen. This is particularly useful when hitting into a projection screen or in a tight space without room to impact the center of the screen.
“With all of this information, golfers can focus on the strengths and weaknesses of their game,” added Allen. “And when their practice session is complete, they can play golf with some of the great simulation software we offer.”
SkyTrak is a revolutionary development in launch monitor technology, offering a complete practice, play and entertainment system for golf at home.

While entertaining, SkyTrak is a serious tool that accurately reflects the golfer’s actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement without ever leaving home. Combined with an App and iPad or compatible PC, the Wi-Fi enabled SkyTrak captures shot information over a vivid 3D practice range and virtual golf course. SkyTrak also offers various challenges for engaging practice such as Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Targets, along with Shot History Tables, Performance by Club, and helpful data screens. It’s easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the course.
SkyTrak users also have the option to upload their practice and play data to the SkyGolf 360 cloud service for storage, analysis and sharing with friends via the new SkyGolf 360 App, and enjoy the benefits of being part of the fast-growing online community of passionate golfers via integration with popular social networks.
