Google Glass App Idea

Have a smartphone camera beam what you're doing to a screen on GG. This way you can see yourself without moving your head say like when you're doing mirror work. GG is a realtime "mirror". You could have a steady head option that draws a red circle around your head at setup and make a swing w/o the ball to see how good you're keeping it steady. It's basically a golf video selfie!

They have those. It's a video feed looped to a small TV (or iPad) near the ball.

A friend of mine uses Skype to video chat with himself. His one iPhone "films" him from whatever angle he wants, then his iPad is near his ball so he can see what he's doing.

It's a pretty great way to practice, eh @cedrictheo ? :)

That's clever. If I didn't have an Android tablet I'd try that. Hmmmm. iPad Mini buy me :-) But the fact that it's on GG and you don't have to move your head to see yourself - that's pretty advantageous no?

I think it would be more distracting than anything. What's better than keeping your eyes down toward the ball? With GG, you could look anywhere, and you have to constantly change focal distance.

Giving away all my secrets @iacas :))... Skype is great for mirror work, I never hit balls using it. More for checking positions/alignments and doing slow motion work.

… but you could. :)

Make a few backswings (or whatever), then chip a ball. Repeat as necessary.

It's still $1800. I figure it might come down a bit, but not super cheap.

Good idea, though.

There are a few sports applications that some people are looking into. "Fitness APP"

Check out "Golfsight" with swingbyte.

See, this is the sort of thing The Dan Plan should be producing. :-P

What if you could integrate protracer into google glass and see the ball trail through the glasses in real-time?

That would be cool.

    • Are you allowed to use the cart for the practice round.  If so, I would recommend using it, purely because you are practicing one day before the tournament and the less tired you are, the better.  For your caddie, it does not make a huge difference.  Unless carrying the bag tires him out so much that it will impact your pace of play during the tournament, either option is fine for him.  Good luck with the tourney and hydrating and carb loading the day before the tournament is huge.  Make sure you have a good breakfast early in the morning, say 6 am or so, which will then allow you to snack lightly through the tournament and keep your energy levels up
    • Shot 80 yesterday which is my best score since starting up golf again last year. I was 2 under after 7 so part of me feels a little bit disappointed that I let it slip!   I was feeling so good on the tee at 8 that I thought I'd hit a little draw into the lateral slope of the fairway to get a better position.  Unfortunately my ball missed the ground and went into the trees.  Took a few holes to get the wheels back on and back to playing shots I can actually hit.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.
