Presenting Sponsor:

Tour-Level Accuracy For All

Unrivaled, Accurate Ball and Club Data
Your pursuit of longer drives, more accurate carries and lower scores requires knowing the critical data points of your swing. A personal launch monitor will give you these data points, however, not all launch monitors are created equal.



We measure what matters, and we do it with the most accuracy and consistency of any personal launch monitor. Launch Pro provides exact carry distance, clubhead speed, launch, and spin. When you know your numbers, you can take your performance to the next level.

New and Noteworthy
Met PGA Compensation Survey

We have restructured our Met PGA Compensation Survey to a digital platform for ease of use, updating some of the terminology in the process. As you will see, we are also gathering data about golf operations budget and total rounds to create some comparables regarding service levels.

PGA Members earn 1 MSR for completing the survey and an additional 1 MSR for opting into the PGA of America survey.

The following survey is part of the ongoing Distance Insights Project that is being conducted by the USGA. This exact survey has been shared with LPGA Members and the results were extremely valuable. The survey will take about 5-7 minutes to complete.

The data collected will greatly enhance our understanding on topics related to golfer experience and tee selection from the perspective of a golf professional.
