Tiger Woods’ Comeback Is in ‘Full Swing’ Due to a Launch Monitor Made Just for Him (and You)
But all of the metrics such as spin rate, spin axis, ball speed, club speed, smash factor, club path, face angle, face-to-path, attack angle, launch angle, horizontal angle and apex height—which the Full Swing portable device definitely had— wasn’t enough to separate it entirely from other incumbent launch monitors.
Only one innovation could do that: precision in-flight ball tracking.
That’s what Woods had begged most for: something he could take to the course that would track his shots in the air—from beginning to end— for up to 350 loud yards. That sort of technology is expensive, which explains the elevated price of launch monitors to begin with. But Dotters’ game-changer was when he partnered with a Lawrence, Kansas radar company known as “Ainstein,’’ the Einsteins of drones and autonomous vehicles who could create a more compact, durable monitor without having to implement the costly newer advances in radar technology and processing.
