Approach R10 launch monitor should be 6-8 feet behind the tee location. Note: Make sure the bottom edge of the device sits above the hitting surface.
Tee location should be at least 8 feet away from the golf net or impact screen. The more space between the hitting area and net/impact screen, the better for radar-based launch monitors.
Red alignment line should go straight through tee location toward target. Ball can then be hit anywhere inside a 2-foot by 2-foot square, with the center of that square being the original tee location used for alignment.
