How you film your swing is crucial in receiving a great lesson. Whether you are using your phone, tablet, digital camera or video camera there are a couple of key elements in capturing video that can be correctly analysed.
Angles - Film down the line (DL) and front on (FO).
The camera must be held mid way between the players feet line and golf ball for DL shots. For FO shots the camera should be 90 degrees to the target line. In both cases center the golfer in the frame. The golfer should fill the frame at the top of the backswing, i.e. hands and clubhead at the top of the frame, ball and feet at the bottom of the frame.
Hold the camera approximately 1 meter above the ground in both cases.
Video size - If possible trim the video to the start and finish of the swing. Alternatively try to start filming as close to the start of the swing as possible and stop filming as soon as the player completes the swing. This will help keep file sizes down, speeding up the sending video process. Please note that golfguru.co.za will not accept video file sizes larger than 20MB.
