SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, has released version 2.6 of the SkyTrak app, including bag mapping, overlaid dispersion circles on the practice range and a camera offset feature.
“We have a passion for helping golfers improve their game,” said Andy Allen, SportTrak managing director of golf. “In v2.6, we’ve expanded our game improvement section to include a new bag mapping feature that helps golfers get the right clubs in their bag.”
With this feature, users can keep track of the number of clubs, the number of shots with each club, the number of shots they want to keep, and the target gap distance and gap tolerance between each club.
Just like the Skills Assessment, everything is easily set up from the start so users can focus on hitting their best shots during practice sessions. The software provides step-by-step directions until every club has been hit. Afterwards, key stats are reviewed, including the average distance of each club.
In addition to bag mapping, v2.6 allows users to overlay dispersion circles on the practice range. The colour of these circles is tied to the tracer colour of each club and they are created once three shots are recorded with the same club. This information can also be viewed in the shot history table.
Another feature of v2.6 is the ability to offset the camera in the newly revised settings menu under camera views. What this means is that users can now adjust where the ball launches on the screen. This is particularly useful when hitting into a projection screen or in a tight space without room to impact the centre of the screen.
“With all of this information, golfers can focus on the strengths and weaknesses of their game,” said Allen. “When their practice session is complete, they can play golf with some of the great simulation software we offer.”
SkyTrak products are distributed in Canada by Jancor Agencies.
