Are More LPGA Players Using Radar?

This may be anecdotal, but there was a time when I didn't see many radars/launch monitors on the LPGA tour ranges, more in social media accounts of LPGA player teachers/practicing. Now I think I am seeing more on the range, a la the PGA tour. Has there been a slow change or am I just seeing this through the scope of Trackman advertising?

Yeah, as they get more money in the game, they start to also splurge on things like this.

Also, it could be:

  • A Trackman data gathering session.
  • The club's, which they're loaning out to a few people.
  • An instructor's, which he's sharing.
  • A group Trackman partially owned by several players.

I wonder if it Trackman and Flightscope archive launch monitor data from LPGA players for informational, historical, research purposes, or to sell it.

As part of the discount they get, they have to give Trackman their data. I think it may be anonymized somewhat, and FlightScope may have a similar deal.

That's smart.  Seems a bit tedious to the player though if they have to track it and send it.  Or is the data auto collected and sent to the cloud or something or other?

I wonder how much the price point of the new Mevo makes it a “no brainer” for LPGA players purchase it. Or do they prefer the full monty of all the data from a full featured unit. 

I guess getting the data from them also may serve as kind of beta testing?

I'm sure some LPGA pros have a cheap Mevo for 'hit and giggles'...but we're talking about the best female golfers in the world...they'd want more detailed info coming from Trackman or the like.

Sure, but only about 30 of them make any actual money.

FYI.....Popov who has struggled financially for years as a pro golfer....used her recent WBO winnings to buy a Trackman.
