Trackman Combine – How Can It Help Me?

Many players “assume” that The Trackman Combine Test is just for competitive skilled golfers. This is simply not true.  

Trackman is also used by many amateur players. The unit will provide them a baseline for where their golf swing currently is and as the golf swings change through lessons, so will the numbers on the screen. This way, you can tell if a swing change is working or not.

What Is A Trackman Golf Unit?

Trackman technology can be used for many things to improve your golf game.

Many teaching professionals use a Trackman unit as it allows them to see things that the naked eye simply cannot see. For example, it is like a doctor using an MRI to see inside of a patient. 

A human being just can’t see exactly what’s going on in a golf swing as it is a three-dimensional motion. In addition, neither can a video camera. 

Each unit has two Doppler Radars inside to track all aspects of the golf club, impact as well as ball flight.

These radars have been used since the 1960’s to track missiles 

The unit may be used indoors as well as outdoors to track every aspect of your full swing, pitching, chipping, and putting.

When using the unit indoors, the first 12 feet of that ball flight is used to determine an estimated ball flight. 

While outdoors, Trackman is the only technology in the world that tracks the full flight of the golf ball until it lands on the ground.

What Is A Trackman Combine?

I like to use the combine to set a baseline during a New Student Assessment session.

Once we have a baseline, we can implement our new practice plan.

By going through the combine after implementing the golf swing changes, we can keep track of improvements to your ball striking. 

During this session you will hit three shots from each of the following yardages as well as three Drivers.

Once completed, you will repeat the same distance for a total of 60 shots.  

The distances will start with and include the following…

  • 60 yards
  • 70 yards
  • 80 yards
  • 90 yards
  • 100 yards
  • 120 yards
  • 140 yards 
  • 160 yards
  • 180 yards
  • Drivers

If these distances are too far for you, there is no need to panic as they can be adjusted to better fit your game. We will talk more about that later in this post.

I am a new golfer and just started playing 2 years ago with my roommates in college. Now that I have graduated, I’ve wanted to play the game more seriously and started taking lessons 3 months ago. I have had multiple instructors with little improvement. Brad was the first instructor that was able to break down my swing in the simplest way and gave me a better understanding of how my body is supposed to move through my swing. Brad is articulate and concise which is great for me as a beginner golfer because he is able to efficiently communicate without confusion or over-explanation. I have seen more improvement from my one session with him than I have with any other instructor. 1 week on from my lesson with him I am making much better contact with the ball and my swing is smoother and straighter. Thank you Brad, I look forward to taking another lesson from you!

Brad is one of the best golf instructors I’ve had. He’s very patient, and worked with my swing. It was horrible in the beginning. He broke it down and explained, in small steps, how to improve it. I was never overwhelmed. He gave me drills to do, and I followed his instructions. After 8 lessons, my game has improved immensely. Brad met me at a club fitter, which was helpful. I plan to take more lessons as soon as my rotator cuff is healed! (Not from golf)

WOW, what a great training experience. Brad is patient, knowledgeable and a great instructor. He is able to feed information in small increments and it makes it so much easier to learn. I am looking forward to more lessons on the future.

I am new to the area so I was looking for a golf coach who could help me improve my game. I have played golf for 35 years but as I have aged, I needed to adjust my swing with golf lessons and expert instruction. I found Brad's website with a plethora of options including private and group lessons. In the last 3 weeks with Brad's coaching, I have enrolled in both private and group instruction with substantial Improvement. Besides being an amazing coach, Brad has exceptional interpersonal skills. He is authentic and truly wants to learn about you and your golf game. He has the latest technology and is able to explain the results which translates to a better golf game. Thank you Brad! I appreciate all of your help, patience, and guidance.

I started taking lessons in July 2022 and my goal was to regain my swing that I had lost due to lack of play for 10 years. I was shooting 100-105. My goal was to regain my tempo and break 90 by 1/1/23. That goal was shattered in just 90 days. I’m now scoring in the mid 80’s consistently and I’ve shot 79 once. Brad has been there every step of the way. He breaks the swing down in bite size pieces. I improve after each lesson and he’s there for his students daily. He even helped me get fit with a custom driver just a few weeks ago at Club Champion. He’s the real deal if you want to improve your game. Thanks Brad

Brad is a great Golf Instructor. He is good at asking questions to help you learn rather than just giving you the answer right away. Helped me fix my swing and find consistency. Responds to texts when I have questions during practice to keep me moving in the right direction. Highly recommend.

After so much frustration hacking away at balls on the range - it was a relief to finally have fun. I improved more in my one hour with Brad than I have in the past two months getting back into the game. His style is personable and relaxed, and he is a very effective communicator explaining concepts and correct feels. I finally feel confident standing over a golf ball again, and look forward to my next lesson with Brad. Roll Tide!

Really personable, easy to get a long with, and great applicable knowledge. I was a little anxious because I have a non traditional swing, but I was at ease with Brad immediately. He didn’t try and change my swing, rather he showed me where I could improve using my normal swing. I highly recommend Brad to anyone looking to improve their game.

What Will You Learn From A Trackman Combine?

So… What are some of the takeaways that I will have from completing a Trackman Combine?

Below are a few things that you will walk away with after taking the TrackMan Combine test.

1. How To Improve Your Golf Swing

We will receive actual data about the golf club and how its moving, impact between the golf club and the ball as well as what is the actual ball flight.

Some of the more important aspects that we will get from the data includes:

Club Face Position

Swing Direction

Club Path

Angle of Attack

And many more!

2. Using TrackMan Combine Test To Create Practice Plans

We will take the data and together we will develop a practice schedule and plan that will allow you to shoot lower scores.  

All of the numbers can be confusing. Let Brad Myers, PGA take all of the data and give you easy-to-understand concepts tom implement. 

3. The Combine Test Will Improve Course Management

Not many players want to talk about this… but… By knowing which yardages are strengths for you, you can better plan how to play a golf hole. 

Being honest, most of the students when they first stand on my tee, do not know how far they hit each club. Not even close.

After hitting the 60 shots, we will have reports to show us the dispersions of right and left as well as long and short. This will allow us to create a personalized club gapping chart for you. 

Now that we know how far each club goes as well as its dispersion, we can select better targets to avoid penalty areas or trouble areas not only off of the tee but going into greens. 

Keeping the ball in play and avoiding these areas will insure that we shoot lower scores. 

We Can Customize A TrackMan Combine Test?

Understanding that not all of our junior and senior golfers can hit a ball in the air 180 yards,

For these golfers, we create a combine with shorter distances and the same scoring,
