Side total is the distance from the target line based on where the ball comes to rest Side total is side plus or minus any bounce and roll. Side total is a calculated value based on the landing angle, landing…

Total is the distance to the final resting spot of the golf ball Total is carry plus or minus any bounce and roll. Total is a calculated value based on the landing angle, landing ball speed, and spin rate. A…

Spin axis represents the amount of curvature of a golf shot A negative spin axis represents a ball curving to the left, a positive spin axis represents a ball curving to the right, and a zero spin axis represents a…

Side is the distance from the target line based on where the ball lands Just as with carry, side is based on “carry flat”. This means side is the perpendicular distance from the target line at the point where the…

Height is the maximum height or apex of a shot The height of a shot will vary considerably depending on the combination of ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate. Variations in ball speed or launch angle will have the largest…

Launch Direction is the initial direction the ball starts relative to the target line A positive launch direction indicates a ball that starts right of the target and a negative launch direction indicates a ball that starts left of the…

Land Angle is the angle at which the ball hits the ground Land angle is highly correlated to height and is a large determinant in the bounce and roll of a golf shot. Assuming all else is equal, a lower (flatter) land…
