Fac ut gaudeam

I was at my local range last night to swat a few. They just got a new TopTracer system in. It was all new last night, staff were running around trying to help people get going. I must say, it is impressive. Instant data, quite consistent. I did notice that the yardages were out and spoke to the pro about it. I normally crank my 6-iron ~165-170 and I was only getting about 150 off this. He said they will collect 2-3 weeks of data and then calibrate it to correct for range balls, temperature etc. It was the same price last night as usual, but I see an uplift coming. The future of golf? My guess is that a lot of golfers don't hit it as far as they usually do (like me, LOL!!). I don't really mind if it is out, as long as it is consistent. I'm normally quite good with distance control.
