We need you to post 2 swing videos into your CoachNow account.

Video 1: Face On View (FO)

  • The golfer is facing the camera.
  • The height of the camera should be even with the golfer's sternum.
  • The camera should be centered with the sternum.
  • We recommend laying down a stick or club in front of the golfer's toes to use a guide for alignment. You will be able to tell when the camera is truly face-on when the stick/club is level in the camera image. You might have to move the camera position or change the stick position until it looks level/parallel.

Video 2: Down The Line View (DL)

  • The golfer is showing their trail side to the camera. (right-handed = right side to camera, left-handed = left side to camera)
  • The height of the camera should be even with the golfer's sternum.
  • The camera should be centered down the toe line, the imaginary line running across the front of the golfer's feet.
