Whether it’s an article of clothing, an intriguing electronic device or anything in between, we want to share these items with you because they’ve generated a bit of chatter by our water cooler (or, these days, on our Slack channel). So sit back, scroll down and keep up with the latest gear golf has to offer.
With summer golf just around the corner, now’s the time to get your game in shape for the start of your annual twilight league — or hey, maybe you’d just like to tune up for just weekly post-work 9-hole loop.
Whatever your game-improvement plans are for the summer months, there’s one simple gadget that will make filming or photographing your swing a piece of cake: the GPOD Mini.
With the GPOD Mini, you can easily mount your smart phone or tablet to an alignment stick to use your smart device’s camera with hands-free ease. All you have to do it attach one magnet to the alignment stick and another to your device, and voila! Hands-free filming capability!
That means you can capture your swing in its entirety for your own analysis or to send it to your instructor. Or maybe you simply want to gather up your buddies for a perfect group shot on a scenic tee box? With the GPOD Mini, it’s as simple as staking the stick and attaching your phone.
Check out the GPOD Mini in detail below, and while you’re shopping, make sure to browse through the rest of the items on offer in GOLF’s Pro Shop — your ultimate source for all the latest gear for your game, all in one convenient place.

Introducing our new GPOD mini…it’s the easiest way to mount and film your golf swing. Just clamp the GPOD mini to any alignment stick* and stick your phone to the magnet!
What we love about the magnetic mount is its cradle free design that allows one-handed use. We made this with 6 Rare-earth Neodymium magnets, giving you extra confidence your phone won’t fall out. It’s strong enough to even hold up your iPad (tablet). You can also stream your favorite sports games and/or tv shows while you practice.
