A Club Tinkerer’s Guide To Using SkyTrak

by Ryan Gager

Like most golfers, I like to change the clubs in my bag frequently. It may be to see a different ball flight, or because I like the shot shape of one club over another. Regardless, I always make sure I put clubs in the bag that address my distance gaps. In addition to those gaps, I’m also looking at dispersion. If my dispersion is all over the place, I will have to reassess what goes in the bag.

Shot Optimizer and Bag Mapping

To know that my clubs are properly fit for me, I use the Shot Optimizer. If any of my clubs are out of optimal spin, launch or descent angle ranges, I will first get the loft and lie of the club checked. If that doesn’t change anything, I’ll then look at adding a different club.

In my bag, there are two areas where gaps are present depending on what club I put in or take out. I tend to see gaps in my wedges and near the top of my bag. Using the Bag Mapping feature allows me to see those distance gaps and my dispersion with each club. When testing different clubs, the Bap Mapping feature is a great tool for knowing the clubs in my bag will perform. Not having any surprises allows me to play golf comfortably and stress free. Too often, I play with golfers who don’t know their distances. They base it off of one shot they hit and they assume that’s how far they hit it. How can you play your best golf without knowing your distances?

Going through each of these features has allowed me to take charge of my game. Over time, I have gradually stopped the constant tinkering with my bag. Knowing that my clubs are fit to me allows me to play my best golf. I challenge you to go through your golf bag, using the Bag Mapping feature to dial in your distances and dispersion with each club. You will be surprised how consistent your ball striking and scores will become.
