For the third year in a row, Golf Digest has named the LiveView camera the Best Video Camera for Golfers.

The device—commonly recognized as the golf studio that fits in your pocket—was recognized by Golf Digest in 2017 and 2018 as well. LiveView Sports has diligently maintained their position at the front of the pack with continuous updates and constant innovation.

In fact, even as Golf Digest presents this award to LiveView’s second generation camera—the LiveView+Plus—the sports technology company is unveiling a brand new generation: LiveView Pro.

The LiveView camera stands out among rapidly advancing golf technology with its real-time visual feedback and astounding versatility. The wireless, lightweight device attaches to a tripod or alignment rod, allowing the user to position it literally anywhere to capture any angle of their golf swing.

The camera then transmits live, mirror-image video to the LiveView app on the user’s smartphone or tablet, enabling them to observe and correct their technique in real time. Both instructors and golfers of all levels have discovered the practice-enhancing power of this immediate visual feedback. Players are able to make a clearer connection between the look and feel of a skillful golf swing. The result is accelerated improvement and heightened self-awareness, translating to lower scores and more fun on the golf course.

The LiveView app further enhances the strengths of the LiveView camera with additional tools such as slow motion instant replay and the option to draw coaching guides directly onto the video screen. Soon, LiveView will even be introducing all-new Swing MAPs, a feature that allows users to overlay their live video with a swing motion diagram demonstrating the motion and anchor points of some of golf’s strongest players.

The technology of the camera itself is charging ahead, as well. This year’s Editor’s Choice winner, LiveView+Plus, made mirror image video a more effective training tool than ever with a video delay of less than half a second and video speed of 60 frames per second for the most detailed slow motion playback possible.

Now, the all-new LiveView Pro camera includes a larger-than-ever lens and sensor to maximize light input in indoor settings. The device also features a built-in wide angle lens so golfers have a full view of their swing even in more confined spaces.

With this advanced generation, LiveView Sports offers even more practice options for golfers. No matter their location, climate, or ability to get to a golf course, every player can practice golf at the highest level and discover real improvement in their game.

That’s what makes a winner.

See Every Second Of Your Swing In Real Time!

In the game of golf, knowledge is everything. Even the most invested golfers cannot fix the errors they don’t realize they’re making. In fact, Dave Phillips, founder of the Titleist Performance Institute, has said:

The biggest issue for most golfers’ lack of improvement is insufficient feedback during practice.”

LiveView Golf has made great strides to provide golfers of all levels with game-changing insight through the LiveView+Plus camera and Digital Swing Mirror app.

Now these innovators are taking the technology of self-observation one step further.

Introducing the LiveView AR headset.

Anyone who has experienced LiveView Golf knows how informative the technology is. The wireless LiveView+Plus camera easily snaps onto an alignment rod, so the device can be placed anywhere to capture any angle of your swing. The camera then connects wirelessly to the Digital Swing Mirror app on your smartphone or tablet. The app displays live, mirror image video of your swing, enabling you to recognize mistakes as you make them and ensure proper correction.

Now, with the new AR headset, LiveView offers a truly seamless practice experience. The headset displays video image right before the user’s eyes, so golfers can see every move without compromising their posture to look at a screen.

The LiveView AR headset takes the form of an athletic-style sunglass frame with an attached micro-display.

Here’s how it works:

  • The LiveView AR headset connects to your HDMI-compatible smartphone. This includes all iPhones and Samsung S7-S9 smartphones.
  • The Digital Swing Mirror app on your smartphone conveys video image to the LiveView AR headset.
  • The headset then displays live video of your swing on a simulated, 4” screen 12 inches from your eye.

You won’t miss a second of your swing. No matter how you turn your head, you’ll always have live video right before your eyes . . . which means you can correct errors in an instant.

LiveView’s state-of-the-art AR headset is lightweight and specially designed to stay in place through rigorous activity, ensuring that this technology integrates smoothly into any golfer’s practice. There is no interruption and no distraction. Only the remarkable opportunity to observe oneself with the eyes of a golf coach.

To learn more about LiveView Golf and the new LiveView AR headset, be sure to visit the LiveView booth (#1174) at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show. LiveView is back this year with a bigger booth, some the most revered coaches in golf, and groundbreaking new innovations, including the LiveView AR headset.

If you’re on the look-out for cutting edge technology that will permanently change the way your clients practice golf, you won’t want to miss LiveView Golf at Booth #1174 for this year’s PGA Merchandise Show.

Attendees of the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show will want to stop by the LiveView booth to find out how one portable, affordable device is changing the way golfers perfect their game.

Players of all levels know there can be a disconnect between what they think their body is doing and what they actually are doing. LiveView seeks to repair that disconnect with live, mirror image video.

LiveView has two main components: a lightweight, portable camera and the LiveView app. The camera connects to a smart phone or tablet through the LiveView app, displaying live video directly on the screen. The system is completely wireless, and the LiveView camera fastens easily to an alignment rod. As a result, users can position the camera literally anywhere to capture the perfect visual angle of their swing.

When golfers practice with LiveView, they have access to immediate kinesthetic feedback on their swing. They are able to watch themselves the way a coach would. And with the LiveView app’s options for automatic recording and instant slow motion replay, users can evaluate every swing on the molecular level. In fact, LiveView’s latest model, LiveView+Plus, boasts an impressive 60 frames-per-second video speed. This ensures no detail is lost in slow motion playback.

It’s not difficult to imagine the benefits of accessing this kind of information during or immediately after a swing. Golfers can correct errors in the moment. They can finally see the bad habits their coach has been talking about. And perhaps most essential to motor learning: they can make a connection between how their swing feels and the actual motion they create.

The LiveView app even features Swing Tools, enabling golfers and their coaches to draw coaching objects onto the screen. Users can check head position with circles and draw lines to help find the correct swingplane. These coaching objects can even be saved as templates, so players can continue to practice and self-evaluate even when their coach isn’t there.

While nothing can ever replace the eye and insight of a golf coach, LiveView offers players a level of autonomy they’ve never had before. Finally, they can watch themselves in real time, correct errors before they turn into habits, and learn to execute proper technique with total accuracy.

With LiveView, players of all levels can finally see fast, lasting improvement in their game.

Make a point to stop by the LiveView booth at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show to learn more about LiveView’s cutting-edge technology. The company is back with an even bigger booth and newer innovations.

Every golfer knows there are countless ways to screw up a golf swing. With so many muscles at work, it’s nearly impossible to keep tabs on every element of the swing motion as it happens.

The LiveView Golf camera and app made it possible for golfers to observe themselves and catch their own errors through Digital Swing Mirror technology and video replay. Now, with LiveView+Plus, golfers can rely on even higher quality video replay to ensure they don’t miss a thing.

This new generation of LiveView features a video speed of 60 frames-per-second. That’s three times more frames than LiveView’s classic model.

This incredible increase in frame rate promises enhanced slow motion video performance. With 60 frames per second, golfers are guaranteed to witness even the smallest details of their swing. The cupped wrists, the unwanted head motion, the lag released just a little too late . . . no matter how small the error, the LiveView+Plus camera is bound to catch it, and the slow motion replay will clearly display it.

What’s more, LiveView+Plus features Swing Tools, a function allowing users to draw coaching objects on the swing mirror display. A golfer can draw a line for a visual of the correct swing plane, for example, then use LiveView’s high-quality slow motion replay to see how well they executed the swing and note exactly where their swing shape may have faltered.

Just like LVG Classic, LiveView+Plus is compact, lightweight, and completely wireless. This device holds a battery charge for two hours and can be used anywhere. For further versatility, the camera is designed to clip securely onto an alignment rod, making it possible to place the camera at any height and angle without disrupting the swing.

And because this training tool is geared toward improving the golf swing itself, there’s no need for a ball. With LiveView+Plus, golfers can practice in any space large enough to swing a club.

The LiveView+Plus camera syncs wirelessly with a tablet or smart phone, where everything the camera captures can be viewed in real time through the LiveView app. The app allows users to select automatic swing detect, which automatically records each swing from two seconds before impact to two seconds after. There is also an option for automatic replay, either once or on a continuous loop, with an adjustable playback speed. These features make it possible for golfers to review every swing without ever interrupting their flow.

LiveView Golf has already transformed the way golfers practice. Now, with LiveView+Plus, players can truly get to know their own swing inside and out . . . and finally catch the errors that have been holding them back.

What if all golfers could critically observe their own swing the way instructors can?

That’s the question the creators of LiveView Golf have both asked and answered with the LiveView Golf camera and app. This device has helped countless golfers amp up their practice productivity by enabling them to watch (and correct) their own swing motion in real time.

Now, LiveView is introducing the next generation: LiveView+Plus. With advanced technology and brand new features, LiveView+Plus is sure to revolutionize the way golfers of all levels practice the game.

The concept behind LiveView is simple. Users can set the LiveView camera at any height and angle for the perfect view of their swing. The camera syncs wirelessly to a tablet or smartphone that displays the swing motion as it happens through the LiveView app. LiveView even uses state-of-the-art Digital Swing Mirror technology, creating a mirror image that makes it easier and more natural for users to adjust their swing as they notice errors.

One of the most game-changing aspects of LiveView, however, is the Automatic Swing Detect function, allowing LiveView to automatically record two seconds before and two seconds after ball impact. Now, LiveView+Plus has enhanced this feature further by tapping into LiveView’s number one goal: immediate feedback for faster results.

With LiveView+Plus, users have the option to “auto replay” the previous swing. They can even set this function for one automatic replay or for a continuous loop. This way, the golfer is able to see their swing immediately after they’ve made it, while they can still remember how it felt. And with LiveView+Plus’s adjustable video speed option, users can even set the replay for slow motion, allowing them to catch every detail of the swing.

Imagine this slow-motion replay combined with LiveView’s Swing Tools function, which enables users to draw coaching objects on the screen. The potential for effective self-guidance has never been higher.

The LiveView+Plus also features:

– 60 frames per second for high-quality slow-motion replay—that’s an improvement of three times more frames than the LiveView Golf Classic.

-A wireless connection using 802.11 BGN to capture more swing data.

-A minimum imaging distance of nine feet with an optional wide-angle lens adapter to reduce the minimum imaging distance below seven feet.

-Video delays under 0.5 seconds, so the golfer sees the truest possible representation of their immediate swing movement.

All these advancements come in the same lightweight package. Just like LVG Classic, LiveView+Plus is fully portable, completely wireless, and its rechargeable battery holds power for two hours.

This device truly is the golf studio that fits in your pocket. With LiveView+Plus, golfers develop kinesthetic awareness at an accelerated pace, with no interruption to the flow of their practice. From the casual golfer to the touring professional, LiveView+Plus is an inevitable game-changer.

If you’re interested in introducing LiveView Golf to your audience or clients, now is the time to get in contact.

If you are the kind of player who spends 90% of their time on the driving range practicing how to hit their driver, you may want to think about changing your priorities. On a typical golf course, there are only 14 chances to hit your driver with all of the remaining shots spent on irons and putts. Your iron play is the backbone of your game that gets you down the fairway and onto the green. If you want to improve your game and become a better golfer, hitting straight iron shots keeps your ball in play and trains fundamental swing habits that help you improve your driving as well.

Hit Your Iron Shots Straighter with These Pro Tips

Improve your game with these three tips on how to hit irons straight.

1. Pick a Target

Before each shot pick out your target. It is shocking how often golfers step up to their ball without thinking about where they want their ball to go. The simple truth is that knowing your target dramatically increases your likelihood of hitting it. When selecting a target, make it as small as possible, while still being able to sight it easily. Thin tree trunks, telephone poles, or distant chimneys all provide great targets that require your brain to be precise in aiming and executing each shot. Part of your pre-shot routine should include picking a target, mentally sighting a line from the ball to the target, and lining up your shot to move at your intended target. Hitting straight iron shots begins in your pre-shot routine.

2. Take a Divot

Most beginners try to help the ball in the air by scooping or trying to lift the ball with the club. Ironically, this tends to lead to thin shots where the club strikes the ball in the middle and results in lower trajectory shots. To get your irons higher into the air, hit the ball on the downswing and take a divot after the ball. The descending blow will increase your chances to make good contact, compressing the ball, and causing it to rebound off the club face much like a rubber ball after hitting the ground. This compression and rebound also impart back-spin to the ball, stabilizing its flight, and providing stopping power around the green.

3. Maintain a Rhythm

Your shots have a rhythm to them that is dictated by the natural movement of your body. This rhythm is sometimes referred to as the kinematic sequence and dictates in what order different parts of your body fire for optimum clubhead speed and control. Swinging faster than normal forces parts of your body to move out of rhythm or sequence and results in skulled shots or shanks. Instead of swinging for full power on every shot, try to swing comfortably at 75% to maintain a smooth rhythm to your swing. During play, focus on this rhythm rather than the mechanics of your swing to keep a steady, consistent, and repeatable swing.

What Else Can I Do?

If you are serious about improving your iron shots and your overall game, the gold standard is to use a camera to capture your swing in complete detail. Contact Live View Golf today to learn more about using cameras to help improve your swing.

The famous green jacket and the immaculate grounds at the Augusta National Golf Club make the Masters Tournament one of the most iconic weekends in golf. The depth of this historic tradition makes it easy for some interesting tidbits to get lost to the sands of time.

10 Masters Facts

Here are some largely unknown facts about the Masters.

#1 How Old is the Masters Golf Tournament?

According to Augusta’s history page this tournament started in the spring of 1934, but it was originally named the Augusta National Invitational Tournament.

#2 Augusta National Golf Course Property Cost

Golf.com reports that Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts bought 365 acres for $70,000 to build Augusta. Now Augusta members may spend almost that much at the club in a single year!

#3 Best Single Round at the Masters

Greg Norman and Nick Price have both shot a 63 for a single round of this tournament, according to golf.com.

#4 The Growing Length of Augusta National Golf Course

Augusta has continued to expand due to advancements in golf clubs. It’s grown 635 yards since it was established in 1933. Source: golf.com

#5 The 19th Hole at Augusta National Golf Course

Augusta founder Bobby Jones considered including a 19th hole where golfers could place a “double or nothing” bet. Source: mybucketlistevents.com

#6 Green Jackets are Kept at Augusta National

The Masters champion is permitted to take his jacket home but must return it a year later at the next tournament. Otherwise, all green jackets stay on the club grounds permanently. Perhaps this is an effort to avoid situations like the one below. Source: PGA, T.J. Auclair

#7 The Easiest Green Jacket to Get

A thrift store shopper in Toronto bought an authentic green Augusta members’ jacket from the 1950s for $5. The lucky thrift shopper sold this jacket at auction for $140,000 in 2017. Source: Golf Digest

#8 The Masters Logo Features an Inaccurate Map

The Masters brand may value tradition more than accuracy. Instead of updating the United States map in their logo to be perfectly accurate, they use the traditional design from the 1930s. Source: mybucketlistevents.com

#9 One Jacket Per Customer

If you’re wondering what to wear to the Masters Golf Tournament, don’t even think about getting an official green jacket (unless you stumble upon it at a thrift store). The maker won’t respond to requests from individuals. Even repeat winners don’t get a second jacket! Source: PGA

#10 Arnold Palmer’s Masters Drink of Choice

While enjoying the Masters in 2013, Arnold Palmer asked a waitress for, “a Mr. Palmer,” then winked at her conspiratorially. Source: mybucketlistevents.com

Betting Odds on the Masters Golf Tournament

The 2018 Masters is April 5-8, and people are already talking about the favorites to don the green jacket. Here are the top five according to VegasInsider.com.

  1. Dustin Johnson 8/1
  2. Rory McIlroy 8/1
  3. Tiger Woods 17/2
  4. Justin Thomas 9/1
  5. Jordan Spieth 12/1

Big names like Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, and Sergio Garcia aren’t far behind, and it’s all going to come down to the final round on Sunday!

Live View Golf has become as a routine part of my golf game.  Whether I am practicing or competing, I will always have my camera nearby.  Trying to make it to the LPGA Tour, I travel more than I ever thought possible.  After I graduated college, I optimistically imagined seeing my swing coach every other week, lessons scattered in between tournaments.  However, that just isn’t realistic when you are on the road for weeks at a time.  This camera serves as another set of trusted eyes when I train – my own.

I fell in love with the Live View camera because I could essentially do mirror work without the strain of looking in the mirror; any screen (smart phone, iPad, etc.) can be placed on the ground in front of the ball so I can view my swing in live time without the awkward head angle.

I can even send my video, drawings and all, to my coach directly from the app.  This feature was exceptionally helpful when I was playing on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf Tour earlier this year.  There is nothing like being half a world away from your coach, but Live View Golf eliminates that distance.

Another advantage to owning this camera is its flexibility.  I live in Florida, and it is not uncommon to find my practice impeded by rain or the occasional hurricane.  I thought I had a great camera setup in my tiny apartment, but Live View made my life even easier by sending me the wide-angle lens adapter.  Now I can take full-speed swings without worrying about smashing a window!

Live View Golf has really invented something special.  I could not imagine touring without my camera.  It is such a confidence booster to see my swing on plane and in good position despite weeks of traveling.  You can bet that this camera is in my bag any time I leave for the range or a tournament.
