I’ve been reviewing tech products for about 10 years now, and I can tell you that I’ve never been quite so sad to pack up and return a piece of gear as I was when I had to send back the Foresight Sports GC2. Because this deceptively simple-looking gadget could have changed my life. Or at least my golf game.
The GC2 is what’s known as a launch monitor. Using a high-speed stereoscopic camera system, it measures exactly what’s happening at the moment your club impacts the ball. The system can directly measure the ball’s speed, back and side spin, launch angle, and azimuth. From those parameters, it can then calculate the carry distance and total distance of the shot.
