What is club path and how can I use the data to improve my golf game?

In this article we're going to take a deep dive into club path, and how it affects your golf swing. We'll also look at how you can use data from golf simulators to improve your club path, and consequently, your golf swing, and all-round golf game.

What is club path and how can I use data to improve my golf game? Why does club path matter?

Club path is the direction the club head is moving at impact. It is measured relative to the target line. Assuming you swing the club right handed, a positive club path means the club is moving to the right of the target at impact, while a negative club path means it is moving to the left of the target. This is also how we talk about inside out, or outside in swings.


The optimal club path for a straight shot is zero. However, you may want to hit a fade or draw, which will require a different club path. For example, an “in-to-out” club path is necessary to hit a draw, while an “out-to-in” club path is necessary to hit a fade.

The data available on Uneekor launch monitors make it easy to measure your club path and help you improve it. In one swing, you'll see more data than you ever would hitting 1,000 balls at a golf range. Uneekor launch monitors will track your swing, and ball movement at the moment of impact at up to 3,200 frames per second thanks to the on board, ceiling mounted high definition infra-red cameras. Using a golf simulator empowers you with knowledge about your game. By tracking your club path over time, you can identify any patterns or trends that may be affecting your swing. You can then use this information to make adjustments to your swing in order to improve your club path, depending on what you want to develop.


Here's what we recommend you to focus on:

  • Pay attention to your club path numbers. Your club path should be within a +/- 3-6 degree range, depending on whether you want to play a fade or draw.

  • Make sure your face angle is matching your club path. If your club path is positive, your face angle should also be positive. If your club path is negative, your face angle should also be negative.

  • Use drills to help you improve your club path. There are many different drills that you can use to improve your club path. Alignment sticks or using the coaching tools available on Uneekors View software will dramatically improve your feel over time.

Golf simulators can be a valuable tool for golfers of all skill levels. By tracking your data and using it to identify areas for improvement, you can lower your score and take your game to the next level.

  • Track your ball flight. Golf simulators can track your ball flight and provide you with data on your launch angle, spin rate, and carry distance. This data can help you to identify any areas where you can improve your ball flight.

  • Track your clubhead speed. Clubhead speed is one of the most important factors in determining ball distance. Swing path is the path that the clubhead takes back and through the swing. By tracking these two metrics, you can identify areas where you can make improvements to your swing mechanics.

  • Practice different shots. Golf simulators allow you to practice different shots, such as fades, draws, and chips. This can help you to become more versatile golfer.
