Dan Whittaker is on hand to explain Trackman terms. In this video: attack angle

Have you ever been in a golf lesson, or even in a conversation with a golf coach and they start talking about different Trackman terms and you have no real idea what they mean? In this video: What is attack angle?

Well we visited elite golf coach Dan Whittaker at his state of the art studio, fitted with Trackman software, to ask him to simplify the terminology for you.

The first term Dan talks explains is attack angle:

Attack angle is simply the angle of which you are attacking the ball at.

With shorter irons you want to see a negative attack angle so that you are hitting down on the all. With the driver, you ideally want a positive number so you are hitting up on the ball, reducing the spin and therefore maximising distance.
