Test. Score. Improve.
Put your golf game to the ultimate test with Rapsodo Combines, the newest feature to be added to the groundbreaking Mobile Launch Monitor.
As a performance-based practice system for the MLM, Rapsodo Combines is an evaluation of your overall ability that can be taken in 20 minutes or less.
Practice smarter and more efficiently, while also quantifying your driving and approach play skills. Get a clear, accurate picture of what you do best, what you need to work on, and what your potential as a golfer can be.
Test and improve every club in your bag with a thoughtful mix of tee shots and approach play encompassing a total of 24 shots that can be completed on a typical driving range.
What Is A Rapsodo Combine
The new Combines feature provides MLM premium subscribers a short test to identify their performance strengths and weaknesses, plus advanced insight into what should be adjusted in order to progress their skills.
Designed by industry-leading and trusted golf expert Dr. Sasho Mackenzie, Rapsodo Combines utilizes over 100k shots of PGA pro data and 20+ years of data from Dr. Mackenzie’s work with all skill levels and handicaps.
Ultimately, Dr. Mackenzie wanted a platform built on historical data that was focused on efficiency & effectiveness, but also brought gamification & pressure tests to practice plans.
“Working with the team at Rapsodo, we designed the MLM Combine to maximize the effectiveness of full swing practice time, while simultaneously providing key insights that provide immediate performance assessment as well as long term tracking of a golfer’s skill,” said Dr. Sasho MacKenzie.
Players can choose between two different combine paths to test their ability - Rapsodo Suggested Distances or Rapsodo Custom Distances.
With Rapsodo Suggested Distances, our A.I. will recommend yardages that a player has not previously practiced to help fill in gaps in that player’s practice. The Custom Distances Option will give the player control over their Combine targets to help focus strengths or improve areas that may be lagging.
Initially, the app will intelligently suggest target distances you have yet to try. But as you begin to accumulate more Combine sessions, the app will switch to suggesting target distances that need more work and/or practice time.
Rapsodo Combines: Approach Target View
For either selected Combine, players will hit 24 total shots - 8 shots per target to three different targets. Every Combine starts two Approach Targets and concludes with a Driving Target, where you will select a club you typically hit off the tee on Par 4’s & Par 5’s.

Moreover, each Combine starts with an optional block of 6 practice shots that will not count towards your Combine metrics.
Upon completion of the combine, each participant will receive the following feedback:
- Average proximity (feet) from the target for each shot hit
- A dispersion circle of each shot hit (lateral and distance)
- Average driving distance and distance away from center line
- A score for each target and drive on a scale of 0-100
- Combine score for your session performance
What Happens After You Complete A Performance Combine
Following completion of the combine, the app will generate a visually rich data report assessing your overall performance.
You will receive a Combine Score out of 100 for each of the three targets, as well as an associated handicap score for each target distance. The Handicap Score represents the skill level you exhibited during the session, based on the how closely each of your shots finished to the designated target.
Additionally, you are provided with an Overall Combine Score (a weighted average of the three individual target scores) and an estimated Handicap that you will be able to compare in-app to all golfers who have taken a Rapsodo Combine.
