FlightScope® in Use by Chuck Cook, Top Instructor

30 July 2008
ORLANDO, Fla. (July 30, 2008) FlightScope®, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and launch monitor and the world's first-ever 3D tracking radar for golf, is now in use by Chuck Cook at the Chuck Cook Golf Academy in Austin, Texas. Cook, the 1996 PGA of America Teacher of the Year, has had four U.S. Open winners under his tutelage, has been listed as a Top-10 teacher in the U.S. by three magazines and was named a Top-50 Teacher of the 20th Century. He is a member of the Golf Digest professional instruction staff.

We take pride in the fact that Chuck Cook, a renowned top-ranking instructor, has integrated FlightScope into his teaching program, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope, based in Orlando, Fla. Students at his academy now will have the opportunity to benefit from all that FlightScope offers in the way of game improvement and proper clubfitting.

FlightScope, a feature-rich device which is far more than just a golf launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. Academies, golf equipment manufacturers, clubfitters, retailers, and green-grass and practice facilities have embraced FlightScope's advanced technology. FlightScope recently was awarded the GolfTest USA Seal of Excellence for superior quality, value and performance.

Having used launch monitors in both my teaching and clubfitting for many years, I was astounded by the FlightScope launch monitor, Cook said. The amount of information, the accuracy of information and the ease of use have enhanced the programs at our academy to a high degree. We just turn it on, calibrate it and use it all day long. In addition to the above uses, we also use it for research. Thank you, FlightScope! 

FlightScope first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to its use at high-profile teaching academies and clubfitting venues worldwide, FlightScope is utilized for personal practice by tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement. It is known for its ease of use as well as the precision and accuracy of its technology. FlightScope employs phased array and ballistic tracking technology to record accurately the ball trajectory and to provide actual launch data. The characteristic distinguishing FlightScope from existing launch monitor technology is that FlightScope records the trajectory accurately in the precise environment in which the ball travels, thereby providing actual rather than implied data. The resultant ability of golfers, clubfitters and instructors to see the actual ball trajectory at various angles allows them to make precise adjustments for enhanced performance.

EDH, maker of FlightScope, is a product development company founded in 1989 by Henri Johnson, inventor and electronic engineer, in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town in South Africa. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
