I was considering getting one, but it's not really the best for golf swing analysis. It distorts the image which makes it less useful for golf. Plus, you have to get the backpack to replay your videos, which is both inconvenient and tiny. I know @Beachcomber has one, @iacas doesn't use his for golf, and I think @rkim291968 has one. I asked this question late last year. You can start reading here: [URL]http://thesandtrap.com/t/39036/comprehensive-camera-for-filming-your-golf-swing-thread/180#post_1075306[/URL]

I use it to view slow mo of my swing (currently to see if my hand is flipping at impact).   Check if the camera already has an updated FW released by GoPro to support 720p/250FPS.   That's the mode I use to tape my swing.   I don't have an app that can replay the video frame by frame - am too lazy to search for one.   If you have such app, that'd help analyze your swing much easier.

    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.  
    • No problem, thx for letting me know.
    • That is not correct. The maximum penalty per round for more than 14 clubs is 4 strokes. See rule 4.1b. 
    • No shoes? If it was a private course, he'd be kicked out, lol!    
    • Great topic! I have a similar issue, definitely mental. I had a golf teacher who said, "golf is a game of distractions", referring to golf course architecture. But also applies to my score on previous holes, etc.  For me, affirmations, and remembering past success are helpful. Also, specific positive goals for each shot, and sticking to my routine.
