What Taking A TrackMan Combine Test Will Do!
Below are a few things that you will walk away with after taking the TrackMan Combine test.
- What you will learn from the TrackMan Combine Test:
- Which distance requires you to practice more at. In the short term of things, very important to know so a golfer stays away from this distance while playing a round of golf. Performing these tests with our players helps create specific game plans to perform at high level during tournaments or a round of golf.
- Which distance your good at compared to a golfer with a similar handicap or one that is better. This is extremely important information to know especially if your serious about improving your golf scores.

Using TrackMan Combine Test to create Practice planes.
TrackMan Combine test also provides players measured information on those essential data points that are directly relate to the 3 key components in controlling the golf ball. Knowing which key skill needs attention helps determine an accurate action plan to practice more effectively. This ultimately leads golfers to improve their golf scores. So let's quickly dive into a few keys pieces from above report.
- First thing to notice. This players average angle of attack with driver is 6* down. If we take a look at the TrackMan Driver Fitting Chart Optimizer below, we can see that he could gain 31 yards in length by improving his angle of attack with his driver swing. To me, working on this component first creates a greater advantage in on-course performance because of how much further he can and should be hitting it. We all know that hitting it further leaves shorter clubs into greens.
- His 60 and 70 yard average distance from the pin will make it hard in not only making 2 from that distance but also in being able to hit the green. This is another area of improvement for him. His key to improve these distances falls within improving the launch angle of his wedges.
- With this information, he is better able to game plan and navigate his ball onto greens more consistently because of his new knowledge of dispersion circles.
