>Shot-tracker, and other telly technology (2/21/09)

>It seems it only takes them about five seconds to generate the shot-tracker graphics to show the flight of the ball. If it was up to me I’d rather just wait five seconds, show shots in “pseudo-live”, and see the graphics the first time we see the shot. The shot where they show the ball flying in the air is worthless, as you have no frame of reference.

The next step will be where they show the flight of the ball live in a 3D virtual map of the course, with the camera tracking behind the ball. They can switch to the live shot of the ball landing.
