CAMERA SETUP – SWING ANALYSIS

This is a basic guide on how to properly film your swing for review. Although the location will not be exact, this guide provides good parameters for filming.

DOWN-THE-LINE
  • Have camera/phone roughly 10 feet behind student
  • Ensure camera is far enough back to capture club-head at the top of swing
  • Place alignment stick or club parallel to target line just off toes beneath hands
  • Aim camera directly down alignment stick parallel with target, through wrists
  • For height of camera, line up with just below elbows, (roughly 3ft above ground)
  • Notice in pictures below, the exact center of the frame is located at my wrists
  • Would prefer camera too far away and video too long versus opposite
FACE-ON
  • Have camera/phone 10 feet away, and perpendicular to student’s target line
  • Ensure camera is far enough away to film club in swing (sides and top)
  • For height, have camera even with just below elbows (roughly 3ft above ground)
  • Would prefer camera too far away and video too long versus opposite
