My Optishot Setup Home Golf


I’m going to show you how I golf at home using the Optishot. I’m going to demonstrate my Optishot setup This is my living room, welcome to my home. I’m going to show you how quickly it goes, okay. Ta Da! At this point you could go ahead and start
playing. Computer hooked up to the TV. Computer hooked up to Optishot. If you’re going to play with no ball, you’re set. I however like to play with a ball. So I do one more unique setup component. Alright, so that’s actually a green screen used
for filming. I normally have a much larger green piece of fabric but that’s
not here with me today so I put my smaller piece up to show you what I do and give you an idea uh…
now I can go ahead and hit any ball I want. I don’t with a real ball in
the house You could. however uh… uh… I don’t want to shank it off and break one of my windows So you can hit your plastic balls into the net I’ve been playing with a wiffle ball recently. because this yellow plastic foam ball they
supply you with. While nice. Some of my friends and I’ll admit, me too uh… Have hit this ball inappropriately when this was setup in a different way and hit the walls and it can leave a little yellow mark so I play with the wiffle ball. When using it on Optishot I put it on no ball setting so it’s important when you’re using real
balls or the foam balls or no balls You need to tell Optishot what you’re doing It changes the calculations just a touch since the wiffle ball really does not
impact uh… the club face at all, I don’t think, I tell it that I’m playing with no ball. but i’d like to play with some kind of
ball because mentally for practice it really helps If you don’t play with any ball you’re likely to start swinging a little too high just swinging over, I mentioned
in the review video You’ll start topping the ball in real life, and you don’t want that. So it’s good to practice with an actual object. Wiffle balls are cheap and easy. Now normally I have my Optishot hooked up to the TV but, some of you like the projector setup I do have a projector, it’s not all that great but
it does it work shining on green screen however doesn’t
look all that great so this is a ten dollar shower curtain from
wal-mart and it’s actually cut up on the bottom because I used the fabric for something else but uh… you can take this, clothes pin it on You can buy white canvas fabric fairly cheaply that would suspended on something like what I have here.
I bought this at tupetape.net by the way However this was ten bucks so that was pretty nice, that’ll work when using the projector it looks much
cooler That’s my Optishot setup, that’s how I golf at home I hope you appreciated the set up, see ya.

  1. Another great video. An idea for a future video, show a bit of the software and navigating through it with the different features. I have not found a video that shows the menus and different tweaks therein that make the optishot more than just a glorified Wii game. Also, do you need a mouse and keyboard handy while playing the game?

  2. Good idea, thanks. Once I have started a round the mouse (trackpad) is used to quit, change settings or use a mulligan etc. The up and down arrows are used for club selection while left and right arrows are used to aim.

  3. i am purchasing an opti shot soon appreciate the video. I was curious on where you got the mat you stand on and where you fit the opti shot mat into? Or if you made it and how did you do so.

  4. I built it. I have a video called Cheap Custom Optishot Platform Mat. You can find it on my channel. Enjoy your Optishot!

  5. Nice setup. How high is your ceiling? I can only swing a PW do to ceiling tiles. I just adjust the clubs on the screen as I play

  6. Thank you, my ceiling is vaulted so its about 18 feet at it's highest point around 9 feet at the back wall. Did you adjust the club head speed or distance for your longer clubs on Optishot to compensate for using a physically shorter club?

  7. No adjustments. I actually find it pretty accurate. My driver goes 260+ yds most of the time. I find as long as I get a clean swing, it works very well.

  8. Love it!!! thank you so much!!! just wondering where did you get those mats from? I really want them for my optishot!

  9. Do you ever have a issue with hitting the sensor openings. I hit down on the ball and normally take good size divots. Worried about hitting the opening and a club breaking and someone getting hurt. Most of the videos i see people are picking it clean or off a tee. Too bad the sensors could not postioned on the inside and outside of the club path.

  10. I bought this and a golf mat last for my boyfriend.  We have turned his dining room into the golf simulator.  The last piece were challenged with is the projection.  We have the computer and even a flat screen tv, but we want to play where we can see the course in front of us.  I am looking at projectors but wondering if there was a certain size, lumens, etc do we have to get.  This is going to be a christmas present so I am trying to wrap this up in the next few days. Any suggestions on the projector?  I actually saw a portable one. Thank you!

  11. If i were to hit real golf balls into that green screen, is it strong enough to withstand being pounded into constantly with a driver and a real golf ball? Im really curious because its a really good idea and i would rather do the green screen other than an impact screen. Thanks in advance

  12. Just felt like making a video eh..? The optishot is a waste of your time and money. Also, this video was a waste of your time and mine.
    Disclaimer: My school bought our team one of these pieces of shit and it was garbage. Played on it for 30 minutes and thought it was fucking joke at first.

  13. Every optishot video setup I have seen on YT looks contrived, cheap, and stuck together with duct tape. Does not seem like a total solution.
