Artificial Intelligence and the future of sports
Our Trackman 4 golf studios newest feature is Tracy, an Artificial Intelligence training tool designed to assist players from amateur to pro in improving their golf game.
Tracy will analyze a series of your shots, which it cross references with over 500 million shots – and counting – in the TrackMan database.
Tracy updates and adjusts her findings with every shot you take before displaying overall insights covering trajectory type, curve, optimal distance and dispersion pattern.
Tracy then creates focused practice by giving you a parameter that functions as a performance range, which you must aim to stay within. The level of each player’s ability is taken into account, so less experienced golfers are given a broader range to work with.
Whether you are a coach, a player, or involved in the equipment side of the golf industry, Tracy can make your work easier.
Insights from Tracy can speed up your practice and make it more effective. You always get an
easy-to-understand course of action where all improvements are clearly – and instantly – displayed. Tracy’s actionable and achievable goals allow you to make the most of your practice time and ensure the best possible results.
