Many times golfers struggle to improve their game because their practice sessions involve them working by themselves and not being able to monitor their own swing. Having a coach or playing partner watch  your swing  and providing instant feedback is a much more effective way to practice golf and quickly  lower your scores


Live View Pro is introducing golfers to a new way to practice with real-time feedback without relying on someone else. The Digital Swing Mirror technology housed inside of the Live View Pro can give you live views of your golf swing from any angle. iOS integration means being able to see your swing in different positions to match your ideal delivery with the proper swing path and arc. We put Live View Pro through our extensive range and on-course review process to see if it really can help your game.

Key Features

The Digital Swing Mirror technology enables players to see their swings in real-time on their iPhone or iPad screens, all without ever leaving their shot.

Automatic swing detection ensures that you never miss a swing.

Slow motion allows you to analyze your swing and make the changes necessary to hit better shots more consistently.

Each golfer is different and the ways for each player to best improve his or her game will dictate which training aids are best for you. Live View Pro offers anyone that is a visual learner a better experience in self-monitoring their golf swing in real-time. 


Live View Pro is the absolute best solution for players that want to see the position of their golf swing live and in the most natural positions possible. 


While no training aid could ever take the place of a dedicated coach or second set of eyes, the Live View Pro makes your practice better. 


Design and Technology

The difficulty many golfers have with analyzing their own swing is the challenge of looking at the  various positions while they address the golf ball . Craning your neck to check your positions in a mirror take you out of your natural golf posture and skews your perception. By placing your phone or tablet next to the  golf ball , you can monitor your swing with the Live View Pro without altering your swing plane or path.

Live View Pro is simple to use and features numerous swing analysis features that can help golfers of all levels get better more quickly. Golf coaches can also implement the Live View Pro into their teaching regimen to help plays relate their desired positions with their internal feelings.


 Connecting feel vs. real is often one of the hardest hurdles students face during golf lessons and the Live View Pro helps bridge this gap. Self-taught golfers can also find tremendous value in the Live View Pro as it becomes a second set of eyes that can travel to any course you attend and be positioned at any angle for improved feedback.


The Live View Pro is one of the best training aids and practice tools ever submitted to GolfersAuthority and we believe that it can make an instant impact on your game. The Live View Pro is user-friendly and takes almost no time to set up. Simply download an app, position the camera, and shoot lower scores.
