One of the many great things about Swingpal is the chance for golfers of all ability levels to get top-notch instruction that is both convenient and affordable.
Still, you want to do everything that you can do to make sure you’re getting the most accurate analysis of your swing possible and that starts with making sure that you’re capturing quality video of your swing.
In order for your instructor to make the best diagnosis of what’s going on in your swing, it’s imperative that you capture video from proper angles and that the entire club is visible throughout the swing.
“Every instructor wants to give each of their students the best lesson possible and when it comes to video golf lessons everyone will benefit from videos that are captured from the correct angles,” Swingpal instructor Vikki Vanderpool said.
“When we have videos from the proper angles to work with, the kind of videos that we would take during an in-person lesson, we can see exactly what’s going on in the swing and target the appropriate problem areas quickly and accurately.”
As far as angles are concerned, when shooting a down-the-line video, make sure that the camera is aligned through the player’s hands and directly down their target line. For a face-on video, make sure that the camera is aligned perpendicular to the player’s target line and aimed directly at their waist.
And when it comes to making sure the entire golf club is visible throughout the swing, that’s a crucial component in your instructor being able to see what’s happening to the clubface throughout your swing, which of course can lead to shots that start offline and/or curve too much.
So get out today and capture video of your swing that meets the criteria discussed above, and we assure you that our instructor team will help you fix your game.
