The Pro Tracer Compilation Thread

12 posts in this topic

There was an old thread on this from 2009 that only had one reply and some dead link. It never took off. Maybe this time around, it will. So I thought it better to start a new one rather than bump that up.

Pro Tracer Compilation thread, anyone? Okay, I'll start. Here are a couple British Opens from 2013 and 2010:

Also known as "tee tracker" or "shot tracker," or whatever... Pro tracer just sounds better to me.

I LOVE the tracer and despite being in the television industry...I still don't have a clue what they use to do it. It's probably some simple program. I assume the tracer is incredibly accurate?

Either way it's awesome.

Yea, it's awesome. It really enriches the experience of watching golf for me.

I did a quick google search on how it works, and there were a bunch of links that popped up. Here's their website . I don't know how many different companies do this kind of stuff though.

Here's the extended version of that Rocketballz commercial from last season or whatever it was.

Awesome feature I wish was still popular.  Miss it during NHL games too, that puck is hard to watch sometimes.

@Ernest Jones .  The best thing to ever happen to NHL hockey in my opinion was HDTV!  I remember watching in the late '60s on a 12" black and white.  You could only tell if they scored if the sticks went up.

Same for golf.  The tracer really helps you see the curve of ball flight.

Was never a problem in Canada, we can smell the puck. Hated the "Fox fire puck".

I gotta give a thumbs up for the tracer. Even with our 50" plasma HDTV it's hard for these old eyes to follow the flight of the ball, even during some second shots. Be really cool if they could employ the tracer on all tee shots. And yes, I wear glasses... :-P

European Tour coverage uses it all the time where as it's like I'm lucky to see it used on PGA Tour coverage.  Though I like where golf channel is going with using it now more frequently on the range.

    • Hauling your clubs in a extended cab truck
      I am really enjoying my set up. I whole heartedly recommend the the switchblade/bedrug combo. Anyone who sees it feels the the same. I am sure that other rolling covers work to but man is this deal slick. I always have my clubs with me and it is like a big golf locker in the bed of my truck now. If anyone cares I can post some images or video of it.
    • Reading Greens
      Amazingly for how terrible I am at putting (and golf), I also try to take that into account too. But per your posts, I'm clearly so ignorant I expect AimPoint is too far over my head to tackle at this stage. I probably have to become a much better golfer before I can properly understand these complex concepts. For me, the reference at the hole helps me extrapolate back to the initial ball position in steps. It's not important to me that you think it's correct. It's simply a visual aid for the kind of mental picture per the images below for the section around the hole; which relates to the prior section, which relates to the section before that, which relates to my initial ball position.   Corresponding to this:  Really? I had no idea that a putt could double break. I have to rethink my whole approach now, dag nab it.   I said it was an aid to visualizing, not a 'method'.  I pay attention to the area around the hole because that is where the ball will usually (hopefully) be slowest (other than situations like going up a ridge) and therefore prone to break more for a given slope. I am also often doing clock drills and again the yardstick provides a reference point for the 'final destination' area around the hole. Besides, don't all greens have about 2* of slope around the hole (& extending outward) on average anyway, so knowing the particular amounts of slope between the initial location of the ball and the hole don't really matter to the outcome?  First time I've seen that. I'd expect the system did that as I universally just hard return between lines of a quoted post and only copy/paste items from off the site. <yup, the quotes were fine in the edit and as soon as I posted, the attribution was dropped. Perhaps a programming error?>
    • GPS, WHY ?
      The GPS measurements is more of a side benefit to using Game Golf to track my game. I don't think that I'll ever buy any dedicated device for measuring distances either gps or laser range finders, but if I were ever given one as a gift or won something I would it.
    • My irons keep breaking
      Have you ever dropped the clubs or had them fall of a carriage?
    • GPS, WHY ?
      Oh come on, give us mid handicaps something to dream about if we ever get to become a low single digit player!
