New FlightScope X2 owner, Gregory Havret, gives feedback

17 October 2011

"I missed four cuts in a row, its true. I am critical and hard on myself, but I don’t feel "out on the street," I do not miss by much each time. I used to rely a lot on my good driving, up until the British Open. It is a slightly worse since and that cost me a lot after the holidays. But my game is back since the KLM Open in the Netherlands. I am confident for the rest of the year.

But hear about my new toy

I’ve got my FlightScope! I can’t stop practising with it. It is great fun to play with. I love to compare my feelings with the tangible data from the radar. I immediately see the result of any slight swing or stroke changes that previously took me hours or even days to fathom out.

With this aid, I train in particular the shots under 100 meters. Poor striking and distance control with wedges is my biggest problem without a doubt. And when I look at one of the best in the world, Luke Donald, I’m nowhere. That’s where it is at. I can’t wait to be calmer on the course knowing that whatever happens, I can really rely on my short game.

So, I now start all my work sessions for half an hour or even an hour with my wedges. I did not do this before, not from idleness but rather because felt that I knew my distances when it actually was not really the case. Today I know immediately the distances that I get. I no longer just know I was within 5 meters. I have greater and extended range accuracy, and am more precise in this sector of play today. I hope that eventually these benchmarks will be quickly very practical to me in tournaments.

I don’t obviously rely 100% on this tool, but I realize that, thanks to it, I train more. Already, because it's a lot of fun, but especially because the feedback is immediate and accurate. I am gradually getting better and more precise practise, with this FlightScope."
