Dude, Where’s My Par? Making Virtual Reality Golf

Friday, March 11
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Four Seasons
Ballroom CD
98 San Jacinto Blvd

With picturesque venues that change every week, an abundance of data, and individuals competing, professional golf is uniquely positioned among sports for virtual reality. At this stage in VR, the pace of the game is another benefit, bringing action to viewers while also ensuring they can easily follow along. The role of individual athlete personalities is also key. Watching a golfer play or interact with a caddy creates an intimate behind-the-scenes view of life on the greens. It can also help a viewer gather valuable instruction tips. From concepting to the shooting and stitching of video footage, this panel will explore the takeaways (and pitfalls) in producing PGA TOUR golf in VR.
