Can Golf Swing Video Analysis Fix Your Swing?

With the advent of technology, golfers can simply video their golf swing for analysis, to isolate AND fix swing faults. If you've never seen your swing after being filmed, you'll be shocked at how it looks. The reason I say this is what you think (and feel) you're doing and what the video shows are usually 2 different things completely!

I've videotaped my swing dozens of times, now and when I think I've made a change, I tape it and analyze it. Guess I see? Well, I can tell you what I think I'll see and what is reality is a little different. So why put yourself through the agony then?

It's a viscous cycle to keep pounding balls and not know if you are improving or not. I did that for years. Kept practicing hitting sometimes 300 balls a day, and my swing didn't get better. I was unconsciously practicing (and ingraining) the wrong moves in my swing.

Don't do what I did and waste years of frustration. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result. We know that's not going to work don't we?

Another benefit if video is it can pick up what the human can't. You can have the best instructor in the world, but he/she will not see what video will show. The swing is too fast for the human eye to catch.

How can you do this on your own?

The cost of a flip camera is around $100. That's it! And, furthermore, most smart phones (ie. iphone, Android) can film and upload to youtube now.

There are also Apps like the V1 that are excellent at taking your swing on your phone and being able to analyze it without uploading to youtube or your computer. Makes it very convenient to pull out your camera, have someone at the range shoot a quick video, and then go right into the clubhouse and put it into your V1 app.

Technology is pretty cool, and more and more golfers are going to utilize video to improve their swing technique and fix their faults. The great thing, is you can even do partial swings, to see if you can make a proper swing. If you can't do it in a partial swing, you sure can't do it in a full swing.

Golf improvement takes baby steps. You're not going to improve your swing overnight. it takes time and unfortunately most golfers are looking for the magic bullet, and there isn't one. Golf video analysis is a good option to explore, and think of it this way. One golf lesson will probably run you $50-$70, and I can tell you, you are no way fixing your swing in one lesson.

But on your own, you get a flip camera, for a one-time $100 and do it on your terms. This is an excellent way to implement golf swing training into your improvement program.

Good advice. Coincidentally, this week my son had a golf lesson with a new golf instructor who uses technology to help his students. It provided a lot of interesting and detailed information and identified areas for improvement - mainly posture and flexibility related.
