I got some great shots of Charl at the Barclay’s this year when he, Luke Donald, and Sergio joined Kevin Streelman (I work with Kevin) for a practice round. It’s rare to be out on the course with a camera and tripod but as I like to take shots of Kevin that I can use the V1 to analyze I happened to be prepared to get some nice footage. The down the line view was from the par 5 3rd hole (I think) and the face on was on the drivable 5th. The one on the 3rd was one of the most amazing drives I’ve ever seen. Kevin crushed his out there 305 (perfectly flat fairway, no wind) and Charl’s […]
This video is kind of long, but you will understand when you start watching and you see shots of Kevin Streelman, Boo Weekley, Luke Donald, Charl Schwartzel and Sergio Garcia shot on the course at 300 fps and a tripod. Kevin was going to play 9 by himself, and when we got to the tee Luke’s caddy was waiting there without Luke. We hit off, and when we were in the fairway Luke hit up as well. As Luke was walking down the fairway Sergio and Charl walked up to the tee and hit off as well. I had the camera and tripod with me, so I took advantage and got some awesome shots. I was psyched to get a […]
I like to go through the TV telecasts that I DVR, pick the interesting swings and load them onto my camera, then load them onto my computer and into my V1, then go through and attach names to them, and then (finally) watch all of them to figure out what kind of video I am going to do. Most of the time I will pick out one or two guys who are playing well and are on camera a bunch and do a swing analysis, or other times, like this one, I will find a general theme amongst the swings and try to identify it. I think it is fairly obvious that if you are watching the best players and […]

You know it’s a good tournament if these 5 studs are battling it out in the end. I caught the last 5 holes on DVR and grabbed some interesting shots to look at. Here I make some random observations of various shots, including some putts and short game shots, hit by the 5 protagonists coming down the stretch. Of course, McIlroy birdied every one of the last 5 holes to win, but it’s always cool to watch everything that’s going on with the guys fighting for the lead. Join the forum discussion on this post
The entire purpose of this video is to record observations of a particular part of the swing as practiced by the top 20 players (according to the “World Rankings”). Too many acceptable variations are castigated by TV announcers who have not done their homework when it comes to knowing what the best players do. Video swing analysis is a powerful tool when it comes to teaching a player how to improve his or her swing.
In this video I take a look at Charl Schwartzel during his brilliant Masters win, focusing on two particular shots and the pre-shot routine he uses before each.
