25 January 2010


FlightScope-Prime Sensor-BatteryORLANDO, Fla. Bob Van Sweden, a multi- award-winning club fitter relies on the FlightScope Prime to help him precisely fit customers at his golf repair center at Missing Links Driving Range in Largo, Fla.
Since 1993, the TaylorMade Club Fitter of the Year has invested in a variety of technologies and fitting systems to hone his craft including several golf launch monitors and says nothing has been as precise for the price as the FlightScope Prime.
I try to stay on the cutting edge of technology and stay as educated in club fitting as possible, Van Sweden said. I strive for accuracy and with the FlightScope's 3D Doppler tracking radar I get it. The graphics and software are far superior on the FlightScope as compared to similar systems and much easier to use.
With the portability of the FlightScope Prime, Van Sweden says he doesn't have to worry about any wires being in the way or the unit getting damaged with a club or errant shot. The FlightScope is positioned behind the golfer out of harms way.
I set my FlightScope Prime up outdoors on the grass to fit my customers, the same environment where they play the game ¦ it's the only way to properly fit a golfer, he said. We have the only location in Tampa Bay that offers outdoor custom fittings with a golf launch monitor. The FlightScope is so easy to use, that I measure off where everything should be set up each day and its locked in for the whole day.
Not only is the portability of the Prime a major advantage, but the FlightScope software also allows you to show multiple screens with different views of the same data.
Using the FlightScope, I'm able to divide a student's shots easily into six different screens and show them six different facets of their swing at the same time, he said. FlightScope provides players with real-time tracking, instant results, and it measures ball speed, carry, vertical and horizontal launch angles, swing plane, club speed at impact and club head speed profile throughout the impact zone, as well as the sidespin, backspin and spin axis of the ball. For golfers to be able to have that accurate information instantly is priceless.
Van Sweden knows that by using the FlightScope Prime when fitting golfers for their equipment, they will not only benefit from the best in fitting technology, but they will also be extremely satisfied with the club they buy. He has been recognized multiple times as a regional and national Club Fitter of the Year by TaylorMade, Titleist and Cobra and has fitted more than 50 PGA Tour Pros, Teaching Pros and amateurs of every level to help improve their games.
