Many golfers today tend to shy away from using video in their training regimes - Almost as if it is a type of black magic. While wearable’s and radar sensors, grip alignment tools and many others are acceptable training aids to have and use.  Whatever the underlying reason is, I am here to tell you that it is just one more tool, in a world of many aids that will help you improve your golf game.

First let’s talk about the versatility of video capture in sports. In this day and age of high tech training you can find the use of video in every sport. From Baseball players to fencing, video capture has found its way into the field. This allows, not only the coaches to better train the sportsman in technique, it also allows medical staff to lessen the chances of injury. By watching the athlete’s video, bad habits and movements that can cause injury, can be pin pointed and fixed - Giving longer life to the athlete’s career.

Now let’s look at the advantages of video capture in golf in particular. With video you get so much more information about your swing and body posture. Even the most seasoned golfers might not know if their body is moving right. But with video golfers will be able to see the very moment they come off line in the swing. That is extremely helpful to any level of golfer. Video captures also give the golfer a way to see that perfect swing again, making it easier to remember and recreate it.

That brings us to the physical benefits that video capture brings to the table. Many golfers and athletes have injured themselves in the pursuit of their loved sport. Many of us have been injured just in life in general. With video capture you can watch yourself and your swing lowering the chance of injuring yourself again. Allowing the golfer to heal and still continue with their passion.

The last point is a simple one. Professional and those golfers looking to become professional have been using video capture for years now. It allows them the ability to go back and watch who they performed on the range and the course. The major difference is now large bulky equipment is no longer needed. With the advent of the smart phone and tablet a single golfer can perform the task of what used to take multiple people.

There you have it. All the reasons, from self-coaching to health benefits, video capture brings to the table. We hope this article sheds a bit more light on the black magic of this outstanding training tool.
