Our head professional James Bisby is always improving his teaching academy in many ways, from investing in his own professional development, and also buying the latest technology to take his coaching to new levels.
For a while it has been on James’ radar that the next big step for him would be to invest in launch monitor technology, but these things don’t come cheap so it’s been a long time in the planning.
James did his research across the market and in the end made the decision to go with the Flightscope Xi Tour, which is one of the leading launch monitors both on the PGA and European Tours and among PGA Professionals worldwide.
For those who don’t know what a Flightscope does, in simplest terms it gathers critical data from golf shots to help players get the best from their game. Flightscope uses Doppler Radar technology (the same as used by the military) to track each golf shot and derive data such as: club head speed, ball speed, launch angle, spin rate, club path, smash factor, and many other attributes. These tools allow James to enhance his teaching and make more specific recommendations to his clients, as it unlocks a world of information about their golf swing.
Other great benefits of the Flightscope Xi Tour include club fitting and finding your distances of your full golf bag. Being custom fitted for clubs is crucial for getting the best results from your purchase, and by using Flightscope you can try various different clubs and James can analyse the data to make sure you the club you select optimises your ball flight because it is in tune with your golf swing.
