Until I can get to my local premier fitter and coach (50 miles away), I'm wondering if anyone can suggest what they would consider an ideal launch/height for distance. There have been some that have checked their Trackman tables to answer here. The local driving range uses "Top Tracer" so I'm missing spin rates. Ball speed - 126 mph, launch 16-18 degrees max height 97-100 feet, 36-42 degree descent (naturally using battered range balls), and a 200 yard carry.. I'm curious as my drives seem to go much higher than the others on the range. Not that they have been fit for maximum benefit but I'm curious if I'm maxing my drive for my ball speed. These are strikes above the center but well below the crown. The TS2 is set to 13 degrees so I can both dial that back and how much I set up to hit up on the ball. With only snowblowing for the next 3 months, I'm just using the range for practice and will be waiting to late January to set up times to work with my coach for next season. In the meantime, just curious.
