FlightScope First to Directly Measure Ball Spin using Radar

10 May 2013

Did you know that FlightScope was the first-ever 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf to be used on TV in 2004 during a golf charity event – Battle at the Bridges.

In the video you can see Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Hank Kuehne and John Daly battle it out. If you listen carefully to the commentators you can hear them talk about how FlightScope can “actually indicate club speed, ball speed, maximum height, and backspin.” This is a clear indication that FlightScope was the first to directly measure spin of a golf ball using Radar.

It is interesting to look back and see how far the game of golf has come in nine years and what a big part FlightScope technology played.
