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
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.

What Will You Learn From 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
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,
