KLAMATH FALLS—Running Y Ranch Resort has invested in a $20,000 piece of technology called Trackman, a radar system that tracks every part of a golf swing.

From launch angle to spin rate, it’s designed to shed light on the strengths and shortcomings of one’s swing.

Trever Wilson, a club fitter at Running Y, then uses this data to inform his decision on which clubs best suit the customer.

In this week’s Golf Tip, NewsWatch 12’s Jake Garcia went through the club fitting process with Trackman and learned that simply having the right club can make a difficult game much easier.

“Some people would say it's more so a band aid, but I think more so, no one has the same swing. Now we can actually fit a club to your swing," Wilson said.

Running Y offers a full bag fitting—which includes swing analyzation with Trackman and the recommended set of clubs—for $120.

The fitting is free if you purchase a new set of clubs.
