I think Trackman is juiced for the pros and they measure off the toe on their t.v. readings for dramatic effect. They probably have different settings for the algos. This helps move product and makes watchers and the consuming public run out and buy the latest junk and stockcomposite drivers to try and make up the difference. I have seen so many 325 yard carries every weekend on t.v. with the announcers crowing that its almost commonplace. Since when are guys reading teleprompters ever honest on t.v.? They lie regularly about everything. I simply count the time the ball is actually in the air and go from there. If you have a good internal count and are carrying on a course for 8 seconds your rarely going to be out past 310, yet I count all the time the tour stars hitting 7.5 carries where the announcers are screaming out that they are bombing out past 340, makes no sense. They massage the numbers.
How do you account for ball speed?
140 miles for 7 seconds is shorter than 150 by a few yards.
Are you counting from the sound of the ball which will be off because sound travels slower or did you have a situation where you can see exactly when the ball comes off the face of the club?
