About Tempo Tones
Displays the club head speed.
During tempo training, the device sounds audible tones to help
you achieve the ideal swing tempo. Three beeps repeat
continuously. The first beep indicates when you should start
your backswing. The second beep indicates when you should
start your downswing. The third beep indicates when you should
hit the ball.
Displays the ball speed.
The Ideal Swing Tempo
Displays the smash factor.
NOTE: The smash factor is the ball speed divided by the club head
speed, and is used to indicate the efficiency of the club hitting the
ball. A higher number is more efficient.
You can achieve the ideal 3.0 swing tempo by using different
swing timings. For example, 0.7 sec./0.23 sec. or 1.2 sec./0.4
sec. Each golfer may have a unique swing tempo based on their
ability and experience.
To find your ideal swing tempo, you should start with the slowest
timing and try it for a few swings. When your swing tempo is
consistent with the tempo goal, you can move up to the next
timing. When you find a timing that is comfortable, you can use it
to achieve more consistent swings and performance.
Displays the estimated carry or estimated carry plus roll.

swing tempo based on studies of professional golfers (The Ideal
Swing Tempo, page 5).

During a virtual round, the device calculates your score using a
method similar to stroke play. Each shot you take counts as one
stroke. Hitting the ball into the water adds a penalty stroke.
Because there is no putting in a virtual round, additional strokes
are added based on how accurate you are with your approach
shot. You can receive 0 to 3 additional strokes depending on
how close your approach shot is to the tee.
NOTE: A 2x multiplier is applied for each shot that is in the
same range as the previous shot.
