Over the past 20 years, technology has taken golf instruction from a discipline based in swing theories to one that relies on fact-based data analysis which allows both teachers and students to better understand how to improve performance. One of the key tools in this tech revolution has been the advent of the launch monitor. While the cost of these units has historically been a preventive factor in amateurs being able to access their benefits, that hurdle has been removed.

The pocket-sized Mevo is a portable 3D Doppler radar-based launch monitor that can be used indoors and outdoors. Mevo provides carry distance, ball and club speed, spin rate, smash factor, vertical launch angle, apex height and flight time. Users can practice without interruption using the Mevo app on their mobile phone or tablet to automatically record, clip and save each video with data overlay. All videos and data are captured and stored automatically, allowing players to review each session, share with their coach and analyze progress.

Both players and parents know that patience is a virtue when it comes to seeing their hard work pay off. While long days at the course and on the range can begin to blend together, goals are what keep us all coming back. Whether that is a state championship, breaking 80 or earning a college scholarship, the Mevo is there to help monitor and track your progress along the way. Players can see the immediate impact a change in loft has on their shots and can monitor statistics such as driving distance from year-to-year. As analytics continue to factor into golf, the portable Mevo eliminates guesswork and provides young players and parents with an affordable entry level launch monitor option. Priced at $499, this is one of the most valuable products in the golf industry.

Winter months mean indoor practice sessions and equipment changes for many players. Progress and improvement however does not have to stop. Adding FlightScope to your arsenal could be the key to making this the most productive off-season yet.
