The data measured by our launch monitors

Our launch monitors use a combination of infrared object-tracking and high-speed, high-resolution camera-based technology to precisely measure every aspect of club head and ball launch performance.

How we measure ball and club data

By capturing thousands of images per second, building a virtual 3D model, and then analysing a multitude of data components, our technology is able to create the most accurate and complete picture of your ball and club head performance – and deliver the results in real-time. 

Camera vs radar launch monitor technology

Our GC launch monitors use exact photometric measurements taken with a clear, direct view of the impact window.

Our launch monitors measure club head data by directly imaging the club face. This provides far more reliable and accurate data than radar-based systems, which are positioned behind the golfer and have no direct view of the club face.
