The Hobart and William Smith golf teams requested launch monitors as part of the sport-specific fundraising initiative and you responded. Professional launch monitors measure ball speed, launch angle, spin rates, carry distance, overall distance and much more.This technical feedback can substantially improve the golfer’s practice, making it more productive, and with better practice, comes lower scores. With lower individual scores, team results improve which positively impacts team culture, pride and recruiting. In addition, today’s generation of golfers have used launch monitors and simulators. They expect that their college experience will also include that technical feedback. We can now provide that information to them which positively impacts the performance of our teams and recruiting.
While a launch monitor will be used both indoors and outdoors, the indoor use will be of great benefit due to our Upstate NY climate. We have set up two hitting bays in the Barn. In addition, are providing clinics and open practice time with the launch monitor for our HWS community.
Thank you for making the purchase of this important equipment possible for the Heron and Statesmen golf teams. Special thanks to Jake Leckey ’10 for the lead gift.
