When it comes to travel,
00:01
nothing's become more important to me
00:03
than capturing the experience.
00:05
These are the best damn travel gadgets in golf.
00:07
If you're looking for one device that quickly captures
00:10
everything from beautiful landscape shots of golf courses,
00:13
to slo-mo video of your golf swing,
00:15
there's really nothing better than your iPhone.
00:17
You'll likely already have it with you.
00:19
It fits easily in your golf bag,
00:21
and the quality of images it produces is fantastic.
00:24
Let's say you're on a golf trip,
00:25
and you develop a case of the you-know-whats.
00:28
That might be a perfect time to analyze your own golf swing.
00:31
If that's the case, consider the LiveView Golf camera.
00:34
It quickly connects to an app on your phone,
00:36
and in that app,
00:37
you can dissect everything from swing plane,
00:39
to impact position and more,
00:41
to try to quickly clear up that case of the shanks.
00:44
If you're looking to elevate your photo game
00:46
while you're on a golf trip,
00:47
consider drones.
00:49
When I travel, I want something that's really compact,
00:51
and as a drone newbie,
00:52
I want something that flies straight out of the box.
00:55
The Parrot BeBop 2 does both those things,
00:58
plus it takes high-def video and great quality images.
01:01
The worst part about golf travel is lugging your clubs
01:04
through the airport,
01:06
but I've got the solution.
01:08
This is the Sun Mountain ClubGlider Meridian.
01:11
Not only does this travel cover have the features
01:14
that you'll find in all other travel covers,
01:16
like heavy duty fabrics,
01:18
and cushioning around the club heads,
01:20
but, it's wheels pop out,
01:22
making pulling the bag through the airport a breeze.
01:24
If you don't wanna deal with these guys at all,
01:26
you can also consider Ship Sticks.
01:28
They'll pick up your clubs from your front door,
01:30
and deliver them to the first tee.
01:31
So next time you go on a golf trip,
01:32
consider ease of travel,
01:34
and how you document that experience.
