I was thinking about picking up this "selfie golf" device so that I can record my swing.

How do you record yours?  I've tried a couple of different methods and they aren't the best....

I either have my son record it, or I use an older car cell phone holder that I wedge in between my clubs in my bag to hold my phone.

Just use my phone. Have someone record for me or find a stand to hold the phone. Height should be hand high for down the line and face on and directly in line with you hands for down the line.

Something like you linked to Stroker will probably work just fine. I have a similar product. I used to use my phone and a free app called Hudi.

I don't mess with it much any more but at the time it worked beautifully.

Michael Breed also has an excellent book called, "A picture Perfect Swing" lots of good info about recording your swing. But you can probably do just fine without it.

I have one of the Selfie Golf mounts, and I like it. Mines currently attached to my alignment stick in my bag, so whenever I want to record my swing, just pull out the stick and put my phone in the mount and voila. Takes 10 seconds.

Hand my phone to my daughter. I'll put that money I save on a tripod toward her college tuition.

I have a go pro tripod, you know one of those with the crazy looking legs, and use my phone stand with it.  I wedge it into my bag between my clubs and then move the bag where I want to record.  Not the prettiest way of doing things but it works pretty well!

Similar to RickeyBobby I bought a kobratech flexible tripod. It can sit flat on the grioujd stand about 6 to 8 inches off the ground. Or wrap around snything to give you a desired height. I've wrapped it around the bars on a golf cart , on my golf bag, just about anything. It has a remote as well so you can take pictures with it that are regulsr oics, not selfie style.

I actually just picked one of these up last week.  I attached it to an alignment stick in the ground and used it for one Driver swing on the course.    by itself its kinda wavy, but i think if you use one of the secondary clips that come with it to secure it to your bag it would work great.

I Tried having someone hold the phone/tablet, but they moved too much, so I just use an old shaft and some duct tape.

I have an old broken driver shaft that I stick in the ground, then use a Ping Cradle attached to the shaft to hold the phone.

I record my swing LOTS. One or two range sessions a week, and though I'm not 100% satisfied, I use a GoPro clamped to either my bag or a chair. I can use their app to start and stop recordings from my phone, and download the video to Coaches Eye analysis app. It's not perfect, but it does about 90% of what I want from it.

 

I also have a RX100iv which has a much better quality recording, but the workflow is just awkward. It's important to me to get speedy feedback, and so far I haven't figured out how to get that out of the Sony.

I don't know of any value to recording a golf swing. I think video equipment caused the golf instruction industry to take a turn for the worse.

 

wow...can't say I've heard this before.

The problem I observed, and it started at the time when video technology became readily available, is that both instructors and students started focusing on "in swing positions".

Video gave instructors the opportunity to break down the swing into multiple component parts, and students began thinking about their swing the same way. So, video caused both instructors and students to make the swing much too complicated.

 

I can understand both sides of this.... video use allows a student to see exactly what an instructor is getting at in regards to various corrections however the swing shouldn't be so robotic that you lose any natural "feel".

 

I do think that the pros far outweigh the cons in video recording and analysis of a golf swing.  No two swings are exactly the same but hopefully similar enough to have a clearer picture of various body positions necessary which will lead to optimal success.

My golf buddy neighbor.

We (neighbors) pitched in and ordered a launch monitor yesterday. A couple of the old farts have no idea what it is but are willing to give it a go. It'll keep us old guys busy for the summer!

Sure!! Not a problem. Just brush up on talking points for doctors, specialists, health care, social security, and everything politics, golf cart accessories and how to bypass the governor then you'll fit right in

Also need a handful of injuries, ailments and multiple problems. Welcome to old fart land. Tee times early in the morning because nobody sleeps thru the night or they stay up after the third bathroom break overnight.
