Imagine your off-season training is now part of your peak season program with regard to both practice and play. When deciding on a golf simulator, reality is the most important component of the experience. As a player, you want to be able to reproduce your swing with the same confidence indoors as well as outdoors. TrackMan Golf Simulator Berlin’s renowned accuracy and versatility allow you to do exactly that: To play and practice realistic golf in the middle of Berlin.
What We Track
The TrackMan Golf numbers are of value for two main reasons: precision and reliability. With TrackMan Golf Simulator Berlin, you will quickly understand why and how to use the data for your training program. The TrackMan Golf Doppler Radar Technology tracks the full trajectory of any shot, from 6 foot pitches to 400 yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with an accuracy of less than 1 foot at 100 yards. We also display the shot’s 3D trajectory together with 26 impact and ball flight parameters in real time (data is delivered within 1 second.)

The Key TrackMan Golf Club and Ball Definitions
The Key TrackMan Golf Club and Ball Definitions
Face Angle is the direction the club face is pointed (right or left) at impact.
Most golfers refer to this as having an “open” or “closed” club face.
A positive value means the club face is pointed to the right of the target at impact (“open” for a right-handed golfer) and a negative value means the club face is pointed to the left of the target (“closed” for a right-handed golfer).
Face angle is the most important number when determining the starting direction of the golf ball. The ball will launch very closely to the direction the club face (face angle) is pointed at impact.
To hit a straight shot, the face angle should be zero. The optimal face angle depends on the type of shot the golfer wants play.
Club Path is the direction the club head is moving (right or left) at impact.
Most golfers relate this number to hitting the ball “in-to-out” or “out-to-in”.
A positive value means the club is moving to the right of the target at impact (“in-to-out” for a right-handed golfer) and a negative value means it is moving to the left of the target (“out-to-in” for a right-handed golfer).
To hit a straight shot, the club path should be zero. The club path is part of what influences the curvature of the shot. It also is part of what determines the ball’s starting direction.
An “in-to-out” club path is necessary to hit a draw and an “out-to-in” club path is necessary to hit a fade. The optimal club path depends on the type of shot the golfer wants to play. A golfer may want to hit a 5 yard fade, straight shot, or 10 yard draw. Each of these shots has its own optimal club path.
Attack Angle is the direction the club head is moving (up or down) at impact.
Shots hit off the ground should have a negative attack angle in order to create “ball first” contact.
However, golfers with slower club speeds should be careful not to hit too much down (negative attack angle) with their irons.
This will affect the golfer’s potential distance. To maximize distance with your driver, hitting up on the ball (positive attack angle) is a must.
The driver’s loft should be chosen so that it complements the golfer’s attack angle.
Having a positive attack angle does not guarantee maximum distance. The fit of the club is also an essential piece of the puzzle.
Carry is the distance the ball travels through the air.
An important thing to know about carry is that the value is given for a landing area that is the same height as where the ball is hit from. Then the golfer can adjust for uphill and downhill shots on the course.
This reason is why carry is sometimes referred to as “carry flat”. Using the club speed definition, we would expect the average male amateur to hit their driver as far as the average LPGA Tour player.
However, the actual difference is more than 20 yards. Ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate must be optimized to reach a golfer’s potential distance. LPGA Tour players are some of the best in the world at optimizing these numbers and getting the most out of their club speed.
Club Speed determines a golfer’s potential distance
Club Speed is the speed the club head is traveling immediately prior to impact. More club speed equals more potential distance.
In fact, adding 1 mph of club speed can increase your distance by up to 3 yards with the driver. The highest recorded club speed is 150 mph! This was accomplished by two-time world long drive champion, Jamie Sadlowski.
Ball Speed is the speed of the golf ball immediately after impact
Ball speed is created by club speed and impact.
Bad impact such as shots hit on the toe or heel will reduce the potential ball speed.
“Glancing blows” created by hooks, slices, and hitting too much down on the ball can also reduce the potential ball speed.
Although a golfer’s club speed is key to potential distance, the ball speed that is created at impact is the biggest factor in how far the ball actually carries.
Gaining 1 mph of ball speed can increase your driver distance by up to 2 yards. The highest recorded ball speed is 225 mph by former long drive champion Ryan Louw.
