SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, announces SkyTrak has partnered with Future Champions Tour to be the Official Launch Monitor of the tour. Future Champions Tour (FCT) has tournament levels for junior golfers just starting out to those looking to play in college. Besides having some of the biggest and best events for junior golfers, the FCT has a commitment to get more kids playing golf.
“SkyTrak is thrilled to partner with Future Champions Tour and help junior golfers of all skill levels,” said Paul Calabrase, SkyGolf National Sales Manager. “Technology is being used more often with juniors on their swing, during practice and getting into the right clubs. With SkyTrak, they have the ability to do all this in the comfort of their own home. With busy schedules and school, juniors can work on their game anytime without having to go to the course.”
SkyTrak is a revolutionary development in launch monitor technology, offering a complete practice, play and entertainment system for golf at home. It delivers commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment at a price far below alternatives. Golfers can also experience and test their skills on some of the world’s most famous 18-hole courses with their own clubs at their own pace through integrations with golf simulators including WGT Golf, Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf, The Golf Club Game and TruGolf.
“Our mission is to inspire our juniors in a positive fun environment to take their game to the highest level through the most professionally run competition and award winning instruction,” said Chris Smeal, PGA, Founder of Future Champions Golf. “Partnering with SkyTrak allows us to offer our juniors an affordable, accurate and realistic in-home golf experience that they can use to work on their game or have fun playing golf with their friends at home.”
“SkyTrak features a Skills Assessment that we think will help juniors really dig in and identify specifics about their strengths and weaknesses based on accuracy, consistency, trends and precision,” added Calabrase. “Over time they can focus on improving the weaker areas of their game and lower their handicap, while elevating their golf game to a whole new level.”
The Skills Assessment allows golfers to set up to 10 target stations with the ability to set distance and club used for each station. It then automatically progresses through each station and allows you to check your performance and detailed shot history as you go. In addition to capturing the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight, the new Skills Assessment allows you to capture additional shot details including flight time, angle of descent, max height and smash factor (PTI). At the end of your Skills Assessment, you’ll see an overview of your entire session including overall green accuracy, average shot dispersion and average tendency. You will also receive a SkyTrak Dynamic Handicap™ score for each shot and overall using the SkyTrak proprietary scoring system.
