In this case, I need to hit a high flop shot, and to do that, I need to really be confident with how much my wrists hinge, unhinge and hinge again.
The iPhone 5S records at 120 fps, and many DSLRS, camcorders and cameras record at 60 fps, at least. Also, you’ll want to use a high shutter speed to prevent a distorted “rolling shutter” effect, which makes the shaft look like it’s drooping or bending backwards. The higher your shutter speed, the better your footage will be.
What are some of these new rules? There are several, but on the following pages, we take a quick look at a few revelations I’ve seen that have helped not only me become a better teacher, but my students become better golfers. Read on.
