Golf Channel to Introduce New Technology Friday at Valspar
Friday’s round at the Valspar Championship might be worth watching after all.
Golf Channel will be introducing new technology called “BagCam” during their coverage window on Friday afternoon.
A camera will be placed on top of Justin Thomas’ bag for the final two holes of his second round.
“We are always exploring ways to innovate within our golf coverage while not disrupting or interfering with what’s happening on the course. BagCam will provide a unique perspective for the viewers at home, and we thank Justin Thomas and Bones for letting us join them on Friday afternoon on Golf Channel and Peacock,” said Tommy Roy, head producer for NBC Sports’ golf coverage.
Thomas is two-under for the tournament after round one and just a few shots off the lead.
The “BagCam” marks the latest attempt by golf broadcasters to enhance the broadcast.
So far, the in round interviews have been a big hit among fans and media alike.
WE will see how this goes over.
