Rick Shiels Tests an iPhone Launch Monitor App (Video)

I discovered this video when I looked for the 70° lob wedge test I posted yesterday. Apparently apps that turn your phone into a launch monitor are becoming available, so Rick picked one of the most popular and put it through its paces. This is the Shotvision iPhone app and he compares it against the £20000 GCQuad monitor that he routinely uses on his videos.

Although he mentions it in the video, it's worth noting once again that Rick is testing only one of the apps you can find online and there may be others that are more accurate. But he picked Shotvision because it's so popular, so it's reasonable to assume this is one of the more accurate launch monitor apps that are currently available. At the very least this video will give you some idea of what to look for in such an app if you're interested in getting one.

And let's face it... if launch monitor apps that run on cell phones become dependable enough, just about everybody is going to want one. So here's your introduction to the latest developing golf tech.
