TrackMan User since:
When and why did you start playing golf?
1990 my sister and father started the year before and it started as a family challenge and have been our game since.
What was your HCP when you turned Pro?
Which is your favorite golf course?
That’s a playoff of 5 great places:
Barsebäck golf and coutry club the Masters course, Greatest combo of forest, park and links golf I know of.
Do you have a favorite coach you follow and why?
Sir Alex Ferguson, for his coaching and record and I like what he did to the Ryder Cup teams. Bob Rotella and Kjell Enhager has inspired me too.
Who is your favorite player and why?
Hogan for his study and input to the game.
Jack Nicklaus for the way he played.
Tiger for his influence on professional golf, records in the game and the way he plays.
What is your best golf related achievement?
Taken a junior from a happy hacker level to the ET tour, that is a journey I will never forget.
As a golf coach, what is the most common mistake among players you see?
Tempo and understand to swing the weight of the club, if only..
What are your greatest professional strengths?
Understanding the numbers and the ability to translate them to perhaps a feeling or whatever works for the golfer, to take her or his game to the next level.
What’s in your bag?
How often do you play golf yourself?
Not enough, but my plan is to play more in the future. being at this wonderfull location you wanna get out and play more often.
What has changed since you started working with a TrackMan?
No more guessing on how the club was delivered, and that is a huge help when you are trying to help/guide the most + knowing when enough is enough in a change. It has definitely changed into more simple information to the student and a tool to easier progress during a lesson. I like to end a lesson with the before and after result in TPS, for many years i have had a “money back” guaranty if i couldn’t help the golfer.
Which is your favourite TrackMan feature, and why?
Skill tests, I like the test center, because you can practice in a game and I really enjoy using the screencast and the TM event for match and corporate events. I like to combine TM4 with Trugolf so I can see the numbers from a game like situation that’s were the secret is to understand your golf, so I really look forward to TrackMans own golf sim software to launch.
How and where can golfers get in touch with you?
Do you have any suggestions, how TrackMan can do better or differently?
I get ideas every day on how we better can share the love we have for the game. Hoping TrackMan will keep sharing info and maybe do more TrackMan University for amateurs. More model swings (more chip, pitch and putting from tour players) if it could be combined with a online booking system to TrackMan facilities I would be even happier with the orange box.
All the best Ronnie
