Obviously not everyone records their swing when they go to the range, but a lot of us do. When you get there, what do you use? High speed cameras are great and very effective. They have great FPS and when taking a lesson from a coach it is a no brainer. However, there are those times (in my case it seems to be most times) that I am either practicing alone or I am surrounded by a bunch of strangers, but still want to video my swings. My go to video device is my iPhone. In the past there were only a couple of ways to video my swing using an iPhone. I either rigged something up on my bag which failed about 80% of the time, or I had to have someone stand there and hold my phone until I was done. It was very frustrating for me, and I couldn't believe that there wasn't an easier way to video than that.
That's why I decided to create my own mounting device using something that almost every golfer had. Its called the ProtoSports Holster. It is a clip designed for the iPhone that allows you to connect your iPhone to an alignment stick for hands free video anywhere on the golf course. It works great and I never have the problems with video that I used to. Now, all I do is take my alignment rod out of my bag, slide it into the ground, and connect my iPhone at whatever height desired and start videoing.
I started working on my design almost a year ago and it is finally completed. Here are some photos of the holster and how it works.
The ProtoSports Website opened up about a week ago and we have already begun to have some big success. We have a few players on the Web.com tour like Martin Piller (shown in the photo), Egolf Professional Tour, and some Universities using the Holster.
We are trying to get the word out to all golfers and would love to hear some feedback. Users on the site have begun buying and we have some good product reviews posted for everyone to check out!
