The Pro Tracer Compilation Thread

13 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.

I was searching for this thread earlier, but posted this link in a different one about pro tracer.

Anyway, I just stumbled on this guy's YouTube channel.  If you want to peruse compilations, this guy has plenty for you!

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
