Recording your swing? Rokform Golf Shooter can help
When it comes to certain technologies, I can be a bit of a Luddite. This is especially true when it comes to mobile phones. Frankly, I don’t want people to be able to call me any time, anywhere. Especially not on the golf course. But I must admit that when I got an iPhone a couple months ago, the video capabilities excited me.
Finally, I could record my swing and take some SwingFix lessons.
Then I ran into a logistical problem: How to shoot video of myself swinging a golf club? I don’t have a lot of time to get to the practice range, and when I do, it’s at odd hours when there’s not really anyone else around. (Wait a second, this sounds sketchy: Videoing myself, odd hours, no one else around. This is going to come back to haunt me…)
Now, though, this vexing dilemma has been solved, thanks to a simple yet brilliant camera stand called the Golf Shooter ($129). Designed specifically for golfers by Rokform, the club shaft-shaped stand sticks into the ground, and at the grip-end is a bracket expressly designed to fit the Rokbed v3 Case for iPhone. (The bracket can also be unscrewed and the exposed threads should fit many other camera brands.)
The stand is also convenient to transport, as it can be stuck right in your bag just like a club. So you could use it on the course, too, if you want to see how you look during real shots from a variety of lies. (I know my range swing is as different from my course swing as Natalie Gulbis is from Boo Weekley.)
Now I have no excuse not to video my own swing and get a few lessons.
