Many services exist to increase the skill level of those interested in playing the game of golf. There are at home putting greens, mechanical swing aids, weighted clubs, etc.

[0003] Yet, present techniques fail to provide instructional information to the person playing or practicing golf during the actual swing, contact, and follow through. It would therefore be desirable to provide a system that provides instructional information related to the act of playing the game of golf, which is utilized through visual means during the actual swing.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

This offers persons playing and/or practicing the game of golf the advantage of having the instruction visually presented to them through the course of their entire swing.
