Haha, thanks!  I was just going to ask how to check to see if mine does this.  Stay tuned ... until later when I'm home and can check it out. Unrelated:  I have to be home by 6pm to meet the guy giving me the quote for a synthetic putting green in our backyard.:banana:

No dice. :(. There is no similar function on the s95 so looks like it's only a 30fps no matter what.

Y'know, I'm almost positive @Zeph did this once a few years ago.

Yea he did, but he posted it in the now defunct Swing Bay forum, which was private, and that was back when there were only like ten supporters, so probably just you and me saw it.

Sean Miller did a couple vLogs before his disappearance as well if you'll recall. They're on his swing thread.

It appears likely though with the great crew we have here now that this will take off this time around :-)

Here is the flexible tripod mount attached to the handle of my push cart that was used to do this.

Do you have any trouble with the swivel ball joint at the top being too moveable? It is on mine and sometimes when I think it's set up to record it starts swiveling over and all I end up with is a video of the ground.

I put some black electrical tape around the ball joint and that helped but I'm not sure if mine is defective or if other people have that problem.

One other thing that is valuable is a decent memory card, I think mine is like 16GB. It says I can record 80+ minutes of HD video. @MS256 I have not had any problems with that yet...

@jamo I found @Zeph 's old VLog. I'm glad I thumbs'd this up because I was able to find it in a second:

Looks like it got moved to Instruction and Playing Tips when the Swing Bay went bye-bye.

Next time I play 9, I'll set up my Casio on a tripod. As long as I turn it off between shots, I should have enough battery to last me, and everything's small enough that weight shouldn't be an issue.


Yup. I think it's in my swing thread. Had a terrible stance that day, iirc. :-P

Edit: Ah, @JetFan1983 found it. Thanks!


I like this idea of VLogs and I'll get on this next time I'm at the course. How about some comments after shots or a little small talk? Not that we have to make it an hour long, but a few tidbits here and there on how that shot went.

This is part 2, the second nine that I usually play.  There is a third nine hole course, but I don't like to play it usually.  I will do a VLog of it something though.  OK guys, your turn!

Took a practice swing and started playing. No warmup putting, etc. Was mostly trying to get Natalie out again.

Swing slid back a bit from the other day when I was doing some rehearsal downswing things. Club steepens a bit on me, and then pivot out of the way without truly getting Key #2 (it's not bad, it's just not great).

Only one ball cut, though the toe hits are indicative of that pattern.

Nat was done after the sixth hole, so I played the last three in a bit of a rush to get home. Not a very good excuse. Just is what it is. She hit some foam balls at home and we worked out her issue (she tends to get her weight forward by moving her head forward, not her hips). Same old, same old for her…

Great round! Probably a 34 or better with some reads on the last few. Hopefully Nat still had some fun. Thanks for showing us how it is done!

On 8, I just goosed it a little. 34 only if I two-putt the last. I caught it half a groove heavy, which is why the first putt was so long. Even five feet shy of the hole I thought it was only rolling out three feet long. It kept going. :)

Oh well. I snuck a few in earlier. And the tee shot on 3 wasn't actually great, but it worked out.

Nice. Whispering Woods looks good, look forward to getting out there later this summer.


Used my iPhone and ProtoSports attachment, oy vey bad camera work today. Next time I'll have the phone further away or use the Casio, I didn't have a lot of time so I didn't check my phone for what the videos looked like.

Played pretty good, my favorite nine at Bernardo Heights CC is the back nine so that's what I played. 3380 yards, I shot 35 and didn't have any of my big push shots. If anything I was slightly pulling it. "Shot of the day" was the low hook hybrid on the 13th hole, take a suck of that Bubba. Best strike was the tee shot on 16.

Just finished a round, will have the video up in a few hours. FWIW, it was probably one of the least enjoyable rounds of golf I've ever played. I woke up with a stomach ache, and felt like absolute shit the entire round. I couldn't stomach breakfast, so I was hungry the whole time. And to make it worse, I was eaten alive by mosquitoes on the first four holes before I went to my car to grab bug spray. Like Joba Chamberlain in Cleveland bad before the spray, and barely tolerable with it. I was also hitting behind a guy dressed in full Heisenberg gear spraying fertilizer on the green, and now I've got a pounding headache. That's all to say: I had absolutely zero feel for my swing. (I don't mean these as excuses or complaints or anything. I played bad because I played bad. Just giving some background.) The only reason I shot +2 37 was because it was a really, really easy course. Anyway, that'll be up in a bit. Also: my voice is the absolute worst. I'm cringing the whole way through the edit.

    • Shot 85 today for the first time in the 80's! Played Wyandot Golf Course, which is short, 68.40/111/5610, but feels great to reach one of my 2020 goals of breaking into the 80's by the end of the season this early. Stoked at the level of play lately and where my game is trending.
    • After posting several 90, 91 rounds I FINALLY broke 90 today! Shot 85 at Wyandot Golf Course from the whites - 68.40/111/5610. Feels great to be in the 80's!
    • Do you consider Ben Hogan's book: "Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf" to be outdated?  "high speed video, pressure traces, and stuff like GEARS" are tools used to measure data points, these data points are taken from high level players and are then used by instructors to modify golfers swings into swinging like those measured players. The you tube videos from Athletic Motion Golf are prime examples. What do you call that "swing style"?
    • So I started tracking my stats this year and it appears I was a little over ambitious with my goals lol Goal was 50% fairways I am currently at 39.6% I'm more than long enough I should be keeping the driver in the bag outside of a handful of holes per round instead of using it on virtually every moderately straight par 4 no matter the danger I could inevitably put myself in. Goal was 50% GIRs I am currently at an abysmal 31% but I've noticed my GIR when i hit a fairway is 52.5% while when I miss it is just 21.3% so I need to be ok with losing some yardage in order to find the fairway more often which should make a lot of things fall into place. I have also been battling my irons all year if I cant go driver wedge I've been pretty useless.  Goal was for scrambling to be over 45% I am currently at 22% which is probably my most surprising statistic I thought I would be holing more clutch putts. I set my putt goal for 33 and that is right where i am now at 33.3 putts per round. I have not been 3 putting much at all I am currently on a 73 hole 3 putt free streak I have been good at lag putting but I'm not holing as many 8-12 footers as I think I should be. The amount of 2 putt bogies I have is incredible.  My ultimate goal is to get to single digits this year I am currently at a 12.2 (down from what I'm guessing was 18-20+ last year) I need to keep putting in the work. Knowing my stats has helped me realize what changes I need to make strategy wise and where i need to improve my ball striking the most.   
    • Round 2 results: . . . . . . Different groupings and different weather conditions (hot with gusty winds out of the northeast; IMO ideal for this course).   The pros were grouped with a 12 and 6 (the 12 shot his career best).  I played with 3 other mid to high single digits.  Member 1 and Member 3 were paired with a former Div 1 collegiate woman golfer and a 10.    Member #1 – 67 Pro #2 – 68 Pro #1 – 70 Me – 74 Member #3 – 77 For S&G’s the former Div1 collegiate played from the woman’s tees and shot 86.   Nerves were nonexistent (probably because the pros were playing ahead of me).  Hyper focused would be the best way to describe my mindset.   Only missed 2 fairways (both misses were small misses) and hit 14 greens.  Iron play could have been better and was battling a slight case of the lefts.  Was +1 heading into 17 and tripled.  18 is a legit birdie hole and I missed a 6 footer.  Solid round with one major mistake.   Member 1 played his usual consistent game. Member 3 struggled off the tee and had to scramble.  Both pros played well from tee to green but never got anything going on the greens.         Will post Round 3 results later today….. lol, then don't follow or participate.  Better yet, block me.  Problem solved.   You are something else, same BS many years later.....   And for the rest of you, screen shot this response because it will be deleted.  Or maybe I'll get banned 🤣
