Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

If you’ve been watching my video golf tips for any time, you know about his definition of golf practice: Focused Repetition with Feedback. You can really improve the quality of your practice by using training aids that provide essential feedback. Imagine being on the practice green and getting instant and accurate feedback about how far your shots go…

Watch this month’s video golf tip to learn more about the benefits of using a golf ball flight monitor.

Golf ball flight monitors are easy to use and are becoming less expensive. Products like the Ernest Sports ES12 Launch Monitor help golfers understand their capabilities with golf clubs, from Driver through SW. The Radar uses an integrated Doppler-radar transceiver and displays your shot data instantly, helping you understand the impact of your swing. In addition, radar outputs ball velocity, carry or total distance, session average ball velocity, and average distance.

What product to use?

I currently use the Ernest Sports ES 12 Ball Flight Monitor, which costs around $200.  However, there are tons of these types of products online. So do a google search and read some reviews to find the one that suits your needs the best!

How to use this product.

Make a list!  Hit shots on the range.  At least 10 shots with each club to get an average.  Take out the top 2 shots and the worst two shots to be even more accurate.  Keep a notebook in your bag and jot down the average yardage for each club in your bag.  


Once I have my yardages for my full shots, this is the shot I practice the most with the monitor.  I want to dial my pitching distances and become more knowledgeable about how hard I have to swing to make the ball go the distance I want to go.  This way, I know I am working on a shot that will really make a difference to my scores!
