Golf Club POV - version Ben Hogan



(We want to thank Carlos from CertaPro Painters in Foster City for letting us borrow his warehouse for the shooting!)

The other day, Garrett hit up on some basic POVs.

So we were thinking about how we could have a POV while making it useful.  Well since people like to hit up the driving range or the golf course
at times, we figured we could just make a POV out of a golf club.  At the same time, we can make it kinda useful too.

As you can see, the letters will go backwards on the backswing and forwards
on the forwardswing.  Ben Hogan's "Five Lessons" has a good picture of
correct swing arc for a golf swing.  Actually that is the reason we named it after the great American golfer, Ben Hogan.  I am sure Ben Hogan would
be proud of our little POV that can allow you to capture your swing arc using a digital camera.  You take a look at Taking It Further page for more information on
how this device can help your golf swing analysis.


Anyways, here's some pictures of the Golf Club POV.
