    it depends if the launch monitor measures or calculates spin, ball speed, swing speed etc.

    Re: Practice Preference

    I have used launch monitors quite a lot. As long as they are accurate and high standard then I find it works well. I believe it works well if you are trying to work on something specific, as you can see the numbers which can help prove if what you are doing is working or not.

    Obviously seeing the ball flight is a big plus, but if you are working on changing your club path for example, you can see it right there on the screen with a LM.

    Don't have access to a SIM/LM unfortunately as I love the data they can provide. Just range balls for me which I admittedly do like, shoddy balls can be a bit annoying though (first world problem right there...). Can SIM/LM's factor in wind and temp?

    There is no substitute for playing.

    Driving ranges do not do it for me.

    Re: Practice Preference

    Preferences is a grass range, but there's only one accessible to me and it's crap.

    I work opposite an indoor golf centre, so I'm spending more and more time there as it's convenient.

    Yes you can set them to factor in wind strength and direction, temperatures and altitude (say you were going to play in South Africa on holiday for example).

    I must say I find it really interesting how everyone looks at the driver/full swing side of this only. What about practicing short game and putting????

    Driving ranges where they let you hit off the grass.


    Hitting off any sort of mat restricts my iron practice to, at best, a 6 iron because I take divots off the grass which you cannot do off a mat.

    Annoyingly there are no local grass driving ranges and the nearest one with mats is 20 mins away, thankfully it's pretty decent with electric tees, and silvermere is about 45 mins away if I'm feeling flush
