General Information:

All you need is your iPhone or iPad! Simply record your golf shot and only mark the landing spot and the app does the rest using our patented computer vision technology!

The app will trace your shot from the beginning until the end and save it in your phone's gallery ready to share with your friends.

The app traces the ball as long as it can see it. So make sure you set the set the camera so it sees the ball as long as possible.

Sometimes you might get a bad trace so we added manual mode with which you can manually build a trace.

Note: Achieve best results when keeping the phone very steady while recording, so using a tripod is not mandatory but recommended.

Otherwise there is no additional hardware required!

Like anything in life practice makes perfect!

We appreciate your feedback so please reach out to us at with any feedback and comments how we can improve the app!
