The members got together and bought these. We were all sick of was it in or not and the course had no interest and any expenditures out of the norm. We rotate the wire so its behind the direction of the putt. I hit about 25 putts at the wire from 4', you have to hit it pretty hard to to have the putt knocked away, and noway to tell if the flag stick could have caused it. Unscientific I know, But it feels like it will make very little difference on 99% of the shots. The last guy to hole out moves the wire to face the back of the green, hopefully minimizing any effect on a good approach shot. If you lift it slowly the ball will stay on the base, most of us seem to do what you are seeing here, popping it up and letting the ball fall to the green, then doing a putter scoop.
Unfortunately it’s going to be one those situations where he’ll say something to the effect of, ‘ you’re all brainwashed and closed minded...negative, bullies, yada, yada, yada...and then he’ll disappear if he comes back at all.
I disagree with this. If you’re going to film your swing at all, why do it at such a low frame rate?
Most people don’t even bother filming to begin with.
I bought a GorillaPod and a Joby phone mount to go on top of it. The whole setup cost like $40 or something and it fits in my bag, which means I can film pretty much anywhere I want.
