More Features Being Added All The Time
Because we think it's important that you get as much of a sense as possible about what we learn during our tests, we're experimenting with publishing our data interactively. We've got about a hundred (ok, probably only 20) other ideas about what else we'd like to do with these charts, but it's going to take us some time. We'll do our best to add features and functionality as we can.
Sliding Handicap Feature & More - ADDED!
What you see below is the actual test results for each of the 6 golfers from whom we collected performance data. Each dot on the screen represents the results of a single swing. Hovering over any dot will provide you with detailed data about that shot (basically everything we have the ability to collect). If the screen looks a bit cluttered for your taste you can simply de-select any golfer to remove his data from the charts. Additionally, you can use the handicap sliders to filter the results as you see fit. We ran into a bug at the last minute, so for now, the handicap slider only works on the shot chart. We'll have that fixed in time for the next review.
Finally, we've added two reference lines to each of the bar graphs below. When all golfers are selected, only a single reference line will generally be visible. That line represents the average results for each golfer for that given category. When individual or multiple golfers are de-selected, a 2nd reference line will become visible. The dotted gray line will always represent the average for all golfers for whom we collected data. The dotted black line represents the averages for only those golfers you select. This way you are able to quickly see how the numbers from an individual, or sub-set of testers compares to both each other and the testing group as a whole.
Swing Speed Slider - COMING SOON
We had hoped to add a slider to sort by swing speed as well, but we hit some snags there too. We'll continue to work on getting that added in future reviews.
In case we forgot to mention it elsewhere, or if we weren't completely clear; testing for scoring purposes (and for the charts on these pages) was done using the 7 iron. As always, golfers were encouraged to hit any and all clubs in the set. Not only did most of them do that, but a few decided to play an entire round of golf on our simulators using our test clubs.
We're just starting to learn about what's possible with this interactive review system, but we think we're moving in the right direction. If you have any ideas, criticism, or have anything else you want to say, please stop by our forums and let us know what you think.
