    what's the difference

    Re. "Horizon Angle", no idea as golf is concerned, but as "launching an object without a back spin and dimples" it's the commonly known 45* for max. distance.

      No difference at all...neither will help you strike the ball on a repeating basis.

        where in golf have you seen that "horizon" term used, or applied?

          I can not see them as being different relative to ball flight unless you are striking the ball from the Space Station.

            Looks cumbersome, but can be figured out..

            Fortunately there are no rules limiting the number of golf balls you can carry during a match!

                  yes,you got it right.(Horizontal)


                  I've only heard of the "artificial Horizon" instrument located in an airplane's cockpit and the Horizon as a reference point incorporated with the use of a Sextant.

                    Don't get me wrong....I think it's a load of useless information ...the untethered golf teaching/techno biz likes to feed this stuff to the hackers

                      It sounds like you may not have had the personal opportunity to see how the data can be very beneficial. I had a client using our Sims a few weeks ago and he was getting very poor distance for his club head speed. We were just chatting about what he was trying to do, not a lesson, just casual conversation. His goal was to hit the ball further but he had no idea how to do it. After I showed him the analysis screen on the Sim his problem came into focus for him. With two very simple swing thoughts he was able to change a very out to in swing to a slight in to out path. With that change he was now free to release through the shot. A pulled fade was changed to a a push draw. He also had a problem with too much backspin. The change from a slice to a draw reduced that for a further benefit. Driver distance went from 210 to 235 to 240. The next day he went for a fitting and the fitter told him the same thing and put him in a low spin driver. During the fitting he was hitting the driver over 250.
                      So for him the techno worked very well.
                      Aim at nothing and you will hit it every time.

                          1. Instead of swinging his arms at the flag feel like they were going to the left (left handed player). Helped with the over the top.
                          2. Proper rotation of the arms to get the club face closed.
                          Aim at nothing and you will hit it every time.

                            yes to my mind those 2 combined produce a lot of wrist snap and power....btw you are the guy posting on the Raptors thread...right?

                              I am not posting on the Raptors thread. Don't know what you are talking about.
