TrackMan a new way to enjoy golf and improve

Sudbury Star  print


There's another option in town for local duffers eager to get a game of golf in before the snow finally fades from our chilly clime. And it can improve your game in leaps and bounds at the same time. Discount Golf in Sudbury has purchased and set up a pair of TrackMan devices, advanced golf simulators that allow users to either play a round at one of 71 different courses programmed into the unit, or use it to break down their swing with a mind-boggling amount of information. One of the two units can even be used outdoors on the driving range, where it can track a ball's flight for up to 400 yards. The TrackMan, which is used by professional golfers the world over, uses Doppler radar, designed by the military, to track the ball and the club to give the user a mind-blowing amount of information that can be used to improve a golfer's swing or enjoy a realistic game of golf when the weather isn't cooperating.
