Ensure that you have the correct setup and that your device is stabilized and placed in the ideal position.
1. Use a mini tripod or folded golf towel or both to prevent ground vibrations for the best possible performance.
2. Use the REAR facing camera of your iPhone and ensure that it is clean and clear of debris.
3. For best results you need to be in daylight conditions with minimal background motion in the camera view.
4. The ball should be placed approximately 4 feet from the device at all times.
5. Use standard white golf balls.
It is important to ensure that you are placing the BALL in the correct position. This should be roughly 4 feet from the device or camera. You should also make sure that the ball is placed far enough back that you are not blocking the camera view with your leading foot or leg.
The ball placement and strike zone should be positioned roughly as illustrated. See more details and tips below.
An easy way to ensure you are placing the ball in the optimal strike zone is to use the length of a standard Driver to measure the required 4 feet from the device and camera.
The ball position and strike zone is measured using a standard Driver length which is roughly 4 feet (48in / 122cm).
Place the ball in the optimal strike zone 4 FEET from the device at all times when using Shot Vision.
The ball is positioned in the strike zone. The player may move the ball around within this zone but should take care not to move too far forward, back, left or right.
Do not position the ball too close to the device or outside the optimal strike zone since this will have an impact on accuracy and detection.
Placing the ball too close to the device and outside the strike zone MAY give poor results.
Do not position the ball too far away from the device or optimal strike zone since this will have an impact on accuracy and detection.
Placing the ball too far from the device and outside the strike zone MAY give poor results.
When hitting shots it is important to check your alignment and hit parallel to the camera view. The device, your stance and your shot direction should all be parallel and aligned.
The player is either aiming and hitting too far left or right and this MAY give poor results.
The player should be hitting down the line toward the target and alignment of the device and setup.
Once you have your device and ball positioned correctly, you need to calibrate your iPhone in order to set the optimal detection window.
1. Calibrate your device by lining up the two circles on the calibration screen. This is done by tilting the iPhone up at a slight angle to set the optimal detection window.
2. Once the circles are aligned with the arrow pointing straight up, your screen will turn green and the PLAY button will appear.
3. Press the PLAY button and wait 5 seconds for the device to finish calibrating. Do not move your device during or after this point unless you stop the session and restart the process.
4. Once you hear the "READY" speech, tracking is active and you can start hitting shots.
5. After each shot, you will hear a short tone to tell you the shot was detected followed by the appropriate voice feedback. Wait 7 seconds before hitting your next shot.
Be sure not to block the camera view with your leading leg or foot.
The player is standing too far forward and blocking the camera view.
The player would get better results if they were standing behind the green line.
