  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Using a simulator and/or launch monitor to help improve your game.

    Feel free to post your experience on how you used your simulator and/or launch monitor to help improve your swing, scores, overall game, etc... This thread should be a sticky so people can come back and post from time to time so we can perhaps learn from each others experiences.
