GoPro action cameras work very well with golf

This video might be another proof that GoPro action cams work very well with golf, not only for surfers, scuba divers, skiers and wingsuit jumpers. I own a GoPro Hero 2 myself and used it a few times for golf (see the Stoke Park video for instance) but always felt a bit weird around the green carrying a small tripod with an action camera mounted. It is obviously something relatively new to the game of golf.

But I have to say, when you are out with the right buddies and you have some fun – why should someone be bothered by a camera, especially when the result is a nice short film that captures the perfect day in HD for the rest of the life.

So golfers, embrace the new wave of high tech even on the golf course, get armored with GoPros, head mounts, tripods, poles and creativity and create something similar to this:

This is an official GoPro video by the way, which underlines that GoPro starts reaching out to the target group of tech-savvy and young at heart golfers. I for one will keep going with my cam and try to come up with some nice golf footage in the future… who knows: the Australia trip is just around the corner – might get some nice shots over there!

First golficiency video released…

Ladies and gents, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… well, probably not so much, I have to admit. But I don’t care and started creating these short films anyway! With this post I’d like to show you my first little clip, playing a round in Stoke Park, just outside of London with a fellow German golf blogger (www.golfnerd.de).

Just for this purpose I bought one of these new brilliant tiny action cameras, the Hero2 from GoPro and a little tripod, the Cullmann Magnesit Copter, which is also very useful as a camera grip. All in all, a perfect match-up and real fun to play around. And while many people will say: “What? Golf… filmed? How boring!” I will respond: “No, it’s not, at least for me!” But everyone has a right to his own opinion.

Tell me what you think! Highly appreciate your honest comments!

Stay tuned for more extensive videos to come over the next months. I’m still thinking about contents but focus will be on courses and the beauty of the sport itself… not me, telling you guys something about swing rhythm and the new Callaway drivers. I keep you posted.
