As far as technical learning, look at your Angle of Attack(AoA), swing planes, and face angles to figure out what your normally do. Do some research to better understand how those 3 factors interact to produce different ball flights and then figure out what you need to do to produce the ball flight you would like.
Regarding getting short changed on yardage, that isn't happening unless you are hitting completely terrible golf balls. I would assume a facility with enough money to purchase a TrackMan has very high quality range balls for you to hit while you are in front of it. More than likely, like 99% of all golfers, you over estimated how far you hit your clubs. TrackMan is the ultimate reality check when it comes knowing your correct "carry" distances.
Congrats on having access to such a great learning tool, utilize it as often as possible and have fun.

I figured wet work was right so I played this weekend using the trackman distances and I was way, way over the green on most shots (i.e. the shots I didn't hit fat). By a full two clubs. After going out I gave up and went back to my usual stock distances and it was better coming in.
Which means two things
1) Trackman needs calibration, or something about my swing changes when im hitting off a mat.
2) I need to be more consistent (see previous post) by limiting my swing.
I'm familiar with the theory of ball flight and read through the ball flight laws thread. So I know in theory what could be happening, but will go through the combine and post numbers here.
