I want the rest of their numbers: AoA, path... Can anyone venture a guess as to their AoAs and dynamic lofts?

BTW, look at the flight time. 7.34 seconds is a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.

Found these off Andrew Rice's site .  Numbers for Patrick Hopper.  "Shots were hit with newer Titleist NXT Tour golf balls into about a 10-12 mp h headwind".

Before

After working on what Andrew recommended, "A straighter club path and improved strike point"

Obvious mishits removed from averages? Hmmm... Well if I remove obvious mishits I'm a scratch golfer. On the PGA tour they have to calculate everything in though. It doesn't make their numbers less impressive, but it reminds us how inconsistent their numbers really are.

As Jamie Sadlowski once said at a clinic "The PGA Tour players hit the ball so they can go find it.   I hit the ball so that Lassie has to go find it".

Even when they miss it, ball is still going 350 yards

Not very "low and penetrating/boring" flight that apex of 200ft!

some obvious mishits there, right?  i mean, the same player is hitting some that hang for 7+ seconds and a height of 150 feet and then hit some that are 3+seconds and only 60 feet in the air?

Not that high. 5 up isn't very much for a long driver. Many will hit 6-9 degrees up in these competitions.
