Coach Mike is here to help you harness the power of technology to improve your golf game. Filming your golf swing, whether with a camera or phone, is a super easy way to get real time feedback on your game. Whether you just need the video for yourself, or to share with your golf coach, we're here to show you how to set up your camera and get the important swing information you need. 

Step 1: Setting Up Your Training Session

Before we start recording, it's crucial to set up your training session appropriately. Begin by identifying a target in the distance. This target will act as a pivotal point for aligning your camera and swing.

Step 2: Aligning Your Swing

Once you've identified your target, you'll need an alignment rod. Place it between your feet and the club, ensuring it runs parallel to your target line. The alignment rod's placement is a critical detail in setting up your camera and capturing an accurate representation of your swing.

Step 3: Adjusting Your Camera

Now let's focus on your camera setup. You'll notice grid lines in your camera viewfinder or screen; these are crucial for achieving the correct height and alignment. Position your camera so that the grid lines match the height of your midsection and hands. This alignment will give you the optimal vantage point for recording your swing.

Step 4: Camera Orientation

With your camera at the right height, the next task is to align the camera lens parallel to your target line. This is where the grid lines on your camera viewfinder or screen come in handy again. If the grid lines are tilted one way or another, your camera won't be aligned properly with your target line, resulting in a skewed video of your swing.

Step 5: Final Adjustments

The final step in this process involves ensuring your camera is placed at an appropriate distance. To capture the entirety of your swing - the backswing, follow through, and finish - your camera needs to be far enough away to include all these elements within its frame.


In a nutshell, filming your golf swing involves setting up your training session and aligning your swing with the help of a target and an alignment rod. Following this, adjust your camera's height to match your midsection and hands, and align it parallel to your target line. Lastly, ensure your camera is far enough away to capture your complete swing.

That's all for now! Hopefully, these tips will help you capture a comprehensive video of your golf swing, providing you with a fantastic tool for improving your game.
