Title - FlightScope MEV+
Information on how the system works.
The LAB will soon come online, but it has already stirred discussion. Rather than technically explain how the technology works, I think it is better to just provide a basic understanding and how the LAB can help YOU become a better golfer.
Mevo+ is the Simulator technology used. Specifically Fusion Tracking, which is a Patented technology that takes 3D Doppler Tracking Radar and synchronizes it with video image processing. It is known within the Simulator community that radar and camera technologies have strengths and weaknesses. The MEVO+ therefore has combined the 2 methods and labelled it "Fusion Tracking". The system uses the radar and camera to follow all the movement that takes place during a golf shot. It tracks the complete swing. Then run analysisp on the portion that is a few feet prior to impact and a few feet after impact with the ball. There is alot of golf trainers who work on the backswing and the follow through and yes they are important, but it really doesn't matter what you are doing in both of those as long as you control the "Y" to "Y". Golf trainers teach full swing becasue they are setting you up to hold the "Y" to "Y".
What is the "Y". When you address the ball the club becomes the bottom of the Y and your two arms become the upper portion of the "Y". During a golf swing that Y shape stays as a Y for two feet behind the ball and two feet in from of the ball. This includes taking the club back, just prior to impact and just after impact. It is this region that determines the quality of the shot outcome. Once the club extends out of that area one of the arms is bending and the wrists are changing as well. So the "Y" shape breaks down. This system measures in detail and very accurately the data points from Y to Y. Then through physics and a few complex alogythms detemines the ball outcome. This system has been compared to top of the line, commercial systems and matched up very closely. Like within a yard or two on distances.

HOW WILL THIS MAKE ME A BETTER GOLFER?
The quick answer is it in itself will not. Only praticing what your doing incorrectly or taking a lesson will make you better! However, having the proper tools available will greatly assist you in showing you what you are currently doing and how to improve upon that.
Mevo+ is an amazing device and has revolutionized golf. If you want to know exactly how far, how high and with how much spin you hit your 7-iron, nothing will give you more accurate data.
You and if needed your instructor can review your swing to see what you are doing wrong and correct it quickly.
