Top Tracer technology - Video coming you way

Post by gpickin » Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:05 pm

I took my gear down to the Ultimate Driving Range with the Top Tracer technology.
I had my computer hooked up with screen capture from their screens, so I can make some videos.

We shot our first one today, Long Drive competition, me vs my lil brother ( not little ).
Each month they have the GAME of the month and they have a leaderboard inside, so not only were we competing with each other, but trying to get the top 3 spots for the month. I think the top place gets some $$$$ cash.
I had a go pro in front of us ( for a while - you'll see why ), and a video camera behind us.

We talked our usual smack, with a little commentary, hopefully it will be entertaining for someone.
He usually out drives me, but today was competitive.

I'm excited to edit it this weekend. You winter golfers, maybe you can watch, unless it makes you grumpier.
Added a couple of pics to show you what it looks like.

So I went back today to try and regain my top 3 position, and went even longer still.

So close it is painful though. Not only did i make this months leaderboard, but the all time leaderboard.

I finally got the video edited.

Here is the blog post

If you don't want to read, here is just the video - warning - it's more than 7 minutes, but there's more hitting less talking.



Thoughts?

Looks like fun. I looked up Top Tracer Range and it turns out they put one in at a little rinky dink 9 hole course I used to take my kids to not too far from me.

I might check it out at some point, as long as I can drink beer and talk shit.

Yeah, you definitely can at ours.
I'm going to record a closest to the hole, points game, and some virtual golf, maybe pebble.

Maybe even the whats in the bag and launch monitor, even if they aren't games.

How 'wide' is the virtual grid that you were hitting into ? Like 50 yards or something?

Probably 55-60 ish. I don’t think it says anywhere specifically but I looked st a few drives close to the edge and it shows how many yards offline so probably close to 60.

Lunch today on the way home from a meeting

I went and snatched the top spot before the end of the month.
BOOM!!! :up

Went from 0.1 yards behind to 0.62 yards in front.

Wait, don't you have to rent the bay for an hour or something?

Yeah... 1 hour rental... at lunch it’s super cheap... and if me and my brother get the bay for an hour it works out like a really good deal.

$15 for the hour unlimited balls at lunch.
They have beer, enough said right ;)

Here is the 2nd Long Drive Video - with brand new Bridgestone White Practice balls - a little better connection, much better ball speeds etc ( this was recorded like 10 mins after the first one, but much different numbers. )
