In partnership with Foresight Sports, the Bushnell Launch Pro delivers Tour-level launch monitor accuracy both indoors and out. Ranked by MyGolfSpy as the Best Golf Launch Monitor in 2022, the Pro offers golf simulation and captures club and ball data for game-improvement insights.
Unlike radar-based systems that set up behind the golfer and rely on algorithms to guess what happened at impact, the Bushnell Launch Pro uses a high-speed camera-based system to capture every detail at impact. It captures and measures thousands of frames per second for the most reliable and accurate ball flight and club data in the industry.
It also offers full golf course simulation and game play. The purchase price Includes 1st year of Basic software package and a 30-day free trial of Gold software package Yearly subscription options are available to fit your needs from enhanced data visualization to full golf simulation.
Note: Gaming-optimized PC and TV Monitor required for simulation. Sold separately. Device will not work outside U.S.
We measure what matters, and we do it with the most accuracy and consistency of any personal launch monitor. Launch Pro provides exact carry distance, clubhead speed, launch and spin. When you know your numbers and measure what matters the most, you can take your practice sessions and performance on the course to the next level.
Ball launch data is measured by capturing images of the ball to model it in real time, and comparing it to the next captured image to determine exactly what the ball is doing post-impact. Here are the Launch Pro's key club and ball performance metrics we measure.
The amount of distance the ball travels through the air.
The measurement of the golf ball’s velocity just after impact. Ball speed is the main component in generating distance.
The amount of total spin created around the tilt axis is expressed as total spin. This will determine the curve and lift of the shot.
Commonly referred to as "launch angle" for short, this metric is the initial vertical angle of ascent relative to the ground plane measured in degrees. The launch angle, combined with ball spin and speed, will determine the ball's carry and total distance.
Also know as "Azimuth," side angle, or deviation angle, it's the initial horizontal angle relative to the target line. Horizontal launch angle, combined with side spin, will determine the final ball position range relative to the target line.
One of the most important pieces of data measure is spin-tilt axis. The spin-tilt axis is the axis that the golf ball rotates around to create shot curvature and lift.
A component of total spin that defines ball lift and trajectory.
The Launch Pro doesn't just look at the ball, but place one of the included markers to the face of your club to get accurate and consistent club data previously only attainable at much higher price points.
The velocity at which the head travels, measured just prior to ball contact.
Smash Factor, also know as Efficiency, is the ratio between club head and golf ball velocities.
The swing path measured in a horizontal plane relative to the target line. This data point will tell you if the club was moving from inside-out, outside-in, or perfectly down the line.
The descending or ascending path of the club head, measured in degrees. A positive number is hitting up on the ball and a negative number is hitting down on the ball.
