Filming Your Golf Swing

To analyze your swing, Bill needs a video recording of you from the Side (face-on) and Back (down-the-target- line). To collect the proper video records, your camera must be placed in the correct positions. To accomplish this, you will need the following items:

  1. A flat area where you can hit balls. A driving or practice range, field, or net.
  2. A practice balls
  3. A video camera and tripod
  4. Your clubs (You can be analyzed with any club, the 5 iron, driver, and sand wedge are the clubs that are most used)
  5. A laptop computer
  6. V1 software (download free or upgraded home software from www.vigolfacademy.com)

*Good Idea: Have a friend help you!
