Golf: Breaking 80, #3


Along with a couple of friends, Linda and I will be going to the Launch this morning. We will get two adjacent lanes as I want to do some video taping. This gives me enough room to position the video camera in back and to the side of the player.

Although, at this time of year, one can expect crowds and thus difficulties in getting even a single lane, I don’t anticipate any problems today.

After our session we will return home and I’ll load the video into our Leadbetter Interactive tool and do the analysis. This tools has two elements: (1) instructional videos that run through the key elements of the golf swing; this *yawn* is a common feature of instructional tapes (2) an analysis tool that allows one to review video of their swing and identify specific flaws. The tool then recommends drills to fix the flaws. This is the part that is really good as it identifies ones own flaws and corresponding remedies.

I think this tool is good for the novice and the intermediate player to help identify and fix the “large grain” issues. The more experienced player is probably looking at addressing more subtle issues which require a trainer to deal with.
