The Spotted Warrior

I received my new MacBook Pro in the mail the other day and I'm back in business. I'll be able to save everything that was on my old hard drive which is a good thing. By the way, if you don't have a back up drive. Get one. I got lucky this time. It's not worth losing all of your information.

One of the features I like about my laptop is that it comes with iMovie '11. I had '07 on my old laptop and never really used it anyway. Unlike the older version, '11 allows you to take footage and put it into slow motion. I've been wanting to do this so that I can analyze my swing like Peter Kostis does during PGA tournaments.

Besides being able to edit your videos using this application, they have added themes so that you can make professional looking movies with trailers and all. After reading/viewing the tutorials and hacking around a little bit, I was able to put together a nice looking trailer featuring my Great Dane Athos.

You may remember him from an article I did on using the Kodak Playsport Zx3 underwater. That was one of the first times he had been in the pool. Now he can't get enough. All I have to say is, "you wanna go swimming?" He jumps up and bolts for the back door. It's too hot to take him and Tank(he's the black Dane in the video) on walks during the day. When we wake up in the morning it is already 95 degrees at six in the morning. Swimming becomes a good way to tire out a hyper two year old who can go for days if you let him.

I'm looking forward to using slow-mo during practice. I can get into bunkers and slow it down to check my technique. Could be useful on the putting greens as well. Although I would like to be more of a feel players, seeing myself will show me what I need to change so that I am not repeating the same mistakes over and over.

Enjoy the trailer and let me know what you think. I think we may have a star in the making. Have a great round and always hit your target. – Book Your Tee Time Today!
