Wednesday competition day at RPGC (Royal Perth Golf Club)

St Patricks day 17th March 2021

We enjoyed a beautiful sunny (hot) day in Perth playing stableford competition.
Mens mid week comp is extremely popular, the camaraderie is highly treasured and thus the afternoon comp and social engagement on the verandah is a must do.
to ensure your chance for an afternoon slot its the norm to visit the club Friday evening for the draw of name and priority time slot selection.  The draw is 6pm deadline, the short session that follows includes social drinks snacks and social banter.

Pic below is out group for the day 
Dom, Phill (me), Callum and Russ. 

Gadget Roadtest

Apart from the great fellowship of Golf

Roadtesting various golf gadgets 


Before the game: 
Personal Launch Monitor Swing Caddie SC300
saves all data, records videos, tracks all shots 

easy to review your swing and distance results 

During the game 

1. Golfpad tags  - track shots 

FREE App, 40,000 courses, a tonne of features; fly each hole, range finder hole or obstacles, scorecard, full history and tonnes of stats 

image below from today's game:  record all shots played on map with distance and club

you can see live map data of all shots around the course, the link is in this page under under Golfpad tag set

2. app Shot Tracer

the low cost app lets you trace ball flight in the air, on the ground (chips and putts)
extra features include include map

Other options are to use related apps which have AI technology to auto record the video (autonomous) set up on a tripod and app will auto sense when the player will posture to swing and begin recording.  This is ideal for the player to capture themselves for swing down the line or face on.

some of the tracer shot videos are saves to the photo album showing the before and after result 


normally embed / display just there but as we have some many of swings of the day I saved them into the photos albums in the link below under Photos

the albums are Google (download) and facebook (share)




I recorded a few short videos of players swing on the day to test a few different tracer shot apps

the shots were taken hand held  (best with tripod) 
I have a few different tripods to test, some attach to the golf bag and others are free standing .. each has gains and pains, there are time constraints if playing in a comp V's social game  

There are several apps to test 
need to consider FPS (frame per second) option for detailed examination of the swing other normal speed is ok for social 
1. the native camera app  (may not allow fps variation)
2. dedicated video app with FPS preset options
3. dedicated golf swing apps with FPS and auto record (AI technology)
No three (3) is ideal as you just set it to on with a tripod and it does everything
its all work in progress
