The game of golf is fickle to say the least. There are so many nuances to the game, and if any one of the cogs in the wheel are out of alignment or isn’t working properly, your game will suffer. A new product just introduced is called the BodiTrak Pressure Mat, and it will help any golfer regardless of skill level. Developed by a company called FlightScope, the pressure mat allows the golfer to track where his/her weight is during the entire golf swing in order to maintain proper balance, which ensures a better golf swing.
FlightScope, a world leader in the development and manufacturing of 3D Doppler ball tracking monitors, golf radars, and launch monitors for sports, introduced the BodiTrak Pressure Mat during the recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
“Aligning ourselves with BodiTrak made sense for us as we look to increase the functionality of our X2 model,” said Henri Johnson, founder and CEO of FlightScope. “BodiTrak’s next generation technology compliments what we at FlightScope are trying to do, and will allow users to obtain unprecedented data with FlightScope software integration.”
The pressure mat system is able to determine a golfer’s balance pattern indoors, outdoors, uphill, downhill, on the putting green, and even in a sand trap. FlightScope has integrated the pressure data within the FlightScope PC software and FlightScope VX2 app, showing precisely where the pressure is on each foot at specific points during the club capture and collision phase. The pressure mat data is automatically synchronized with the golf swing. Golfers will be able to see their FlightScope data alongside their weight shift for the entire backswing and downswing, through impact.
Though this is a remarkable product, it doesn’t come cheap. The wireless BodiTrak Pressure Mat will set you back $1,995. Add an additional $300 for the app integration and you’re looking at a cost of $2,295. But hey, it’s only money, right?
