For decades I’ve been saying there’s an easy way to make a million dollars. All you have to do is invent a product that will improve your golf game.
Many companies have tried but have not been able to crack that exploding bombshell of fame and profitability in the reported $7 billion golf industry, with exceptions such as “The Putting Arc” or “The Whip” or “Medicus” and more.
Now, along comes a company called Flightscope, a leader in 3D Doppler ball tracking systems designed for golfers to practice with a purpose. Flightscope is gaining popularity and earning market share because it is affordable and it works.
FlightScope is a company offering various launch monitors, which is used by professional golfers Bryson DeChambeau and Joe Miller to analyze data and improve performance. The company is also selling Mevo, its first consumer-focused, portable model to use this same tracking technology, which primary feature is that it fits comfortably in your pocket, instead of an awkward over-the-shoulder carrying case.
Golfers in all shapes and sizes, most with weaknesses in their game, can now go to the practice range and train like the professionals. Mevo easily fits in your pocket and sets up to record real-time speed, distance, height, ball speed, spin rate and other critical details to examine and improve upon. Combining video footage and 3D doppler technology with real-time tracking, Mevo is the first device of its kind to capture these collective statistics at such a high caliber of accuracy.
“The goal of Flightscope is to continuously improve our technology and give our customers the most advanced golf launch monitor on the market,” said Henri Johnson, Inventor and CEO of FlightScope in a recent press release. “To ensure that this goal is met, we created the X3 with a revolutionary design that makes it unrivaled in every aspect.”
You’ve heard of Trackman, which is the undisputed pacesetter of golf instruction, but the downside is the price because one Trackman technology machine is upwards of $30,000. The price range for a Flightscope X3 launch monitor is much less and the Mevo is under $3000.
This month FlightScope was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the “Best New Consumer Product” category for the FlightScope Mevo at the 16th Annual American Business Awards in New York.
“This product has a great purpose,” said long-time teaching pro Bob Leary from Cape Cod. “It brings much needed technology into the hands of golf instructors to improve, get better results with their students and be more competitive. What I like is that the Mevo launch monitor is portable, fits in the palm of your hand, and I can use it indoors, on the driving range, and even on the golf course.”
If you teach golf for a living, or coach a golf team, you might consider investing in a game improvement tool like the Flightscope launch monitor Xi+ or Xi Tour or X3 depending on your budget.
FlightScope is in use by top golf instructors, club fitters, tour players and original equipment manufacturers around the world. So they are doing something right!
