FlightScope Ambassador Bryson DeChambeau Wins Arnold Palmer Invitational
9 March 2021
ORLANDO, FL – FlightScope – global leader in tracking and analyzing sports performance data – congratulates Bryson DeChambeau on his triumph at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, where he finished with a dramatic one-shot victory at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando.
DeChambeau trusts FlightScope’s popular X3 model to help prepare for competition, relying on it to provide accurate feedback during practice sessions, as well as to help understand the effects of swing or equipment changes and how his training regimen impacts golf performance. The win marks the 27-year-old’s eighth PGA TOUR title. At Bay Hill, he finished first in the statistical categories of Strokes Gained and Stokes Gained off-the-tee, as well as total driving distance where he averaged nearly 324 yards throughout the week.
“It’s not about how many times you get kicked down, it’s about how many times you get back up and keep going, and that’s what I surely did out there today,” said DeChambeau during a post-round interview. “It’s thanks to Chris Como, Mike Schy and a bunch of others behind me that have been instrumental.”
“Bryson has opened the eyes of the golf industry when it comes to the importance of both physical fitness and data analytics,” said Henri Johnson, Founder & CEO of FlightScope. “He is among the smartest and most exciting superstars in golf and has managed to optimize his performance by constantly working to improve his mechanics, his equipment and his body, and he’s relied on FlightScope to measure the results.”
FlightScope’s X3 tracking technology provides several world-first benefits to players and instructors, including its ‘Fusion Tracking,’ a combination of 3D tracking and image processing creating unmatched performance data. Newly upgraded software features include Environmental Optimizer technology, another world first which enables players to plan and prepare for specific tournament conditions, without having to leave their home course. FlightScope’s MultiCam App allows golfers to automatically record and sync data from multiple cameras for instant on-screen review.
With accurate, performance-driven technology, FlightScope transforms the way golf is analyzed and how players improve. Beyond DeChambeau, the company’s renowned products are trusted by a large and growing number of TOUR players and top teachers, including Bubba Watson, Mike Schy and George Gankas.
The industry leader and pioneer in tracking and analyzing sports performance data, FlightScope was founded in 1989 when its proprietary technology was originally used to track projectiles for the defense industry. Turning its attention to the world of sports, it has pioneered a variety of innovations to help improve athletic performance in multiple sports categories, including golf, tennis, baseball, softball, cricket and more to come.
Among the groundbreaking inventions it has designed and engineered are: the world’s first autonomous cricket bowling speed radar (1992), the first 3D Doppler radar in golf (2000), the first accurate tennis serve speed radar (2001), the first 3D Doppler radar for golf simulators – called “FlightScope TBox” (2002), the first 3D Doppler radar for golf driving ranges – called “FlightScope The Game,” which included game software and in-bay TV monitors (2003). Additionally, FlightScope was the first to integrate 3D Doppler tracking into television broadcasts, as showcased at the 2004 Nedbank Golf Challenge and Battle at the Bridges exhibition match.
Renowned for accuracy and ease-of-use, FlightScope products represent the pinnacle of tracking technology, enabling players and coaches to measure and analyze every aspect of performance with unmatched accuracy.
