Accurate Ball Find Zone
If you are experiencing problems related to ball lock, missed shots, or no data after a ball is struck please see below:
After calibration, you can verify the ball find area on your mat by using the below instructions.
Be sure that the GCHawk hitting zone is matched to your mat accurately, if not you must move your mat so your ball is seen by the device, or remount the GCHawk to allow the ball to always be within the hitting zone when using.
The best method for this would be:
1. Begin by placing a ball down into the Ball Find area.
2. Move it up to the far right corner of the hitting zone. Be sure to test when the ball leaves the hitting zone, not just if it leaves the mat. If it leaves the mat you will want to know by how much so you can correct your mat placement once complete.
3. Confirm you have reached the farthest point within the right corner and then place a NON REFLECTIVE marker there to notate it.
4. Repeat this step for all corners until you have represented the entire Ball Find Zone on the floor.
Here we have represented what a Bad Ball Find Zone would look like for a GCHAWK. (Note: We do not advise using balls to mark your location, but we did here once noted for illustration purposes).
Here is a representation of what a Bad Ball Find Zone would look like for a GCHAWK. Note that the tee is outside of the ball find area.

Below you will find what is considered a properly configured ball find area on your mat. Note that the tee is inside of the ball find area. Now the entire hitting zone on the mat is located within the Ball Find area.
If you have continued issues please be sure to review the other trouble shooting guides that appear relevant to the issue you are encountering.
