    I can't imagine there being much money in this so it seems like it is just a small side project. The videos are pretty cool to look at..... but most things shot with a drone are cool. http://www.golfersflyby.com

    He should also market to real estate agents and people selling homes with great lots. Wouldn't take long to drive out, launch and get some video, then edit it well enough for a real estate ad.

    I suspect there are already a lot of people doing this, but it's such a new market that there is plenty of room for more players. You're right, I think charging a few hundred bucks to real estate professionals and home sellers would be a nice business. New homes go up for sale all the time. But there's only so many golf courses within Scott's driving distance.

    Why don't any of the TV guys write a tell all book already?

    I am sure they have plenty to say about the King of all Sellouts.

    We've been looking at homes recently, and it's shocking how bad the photography is on most of them. Lazy agents snap a few dimly lit shots of beds and walls and post 4 of them. The ones that have a good presentation never seem to last long. You'll have some amazing beach home with what I know is a great view and they show one fuzzy shot off the balcony.

    Yeah, my sister was in the market for a new house so I was helping her find some good options and I was amazed at how bad the descriptions and photography was....... especially considering how cheap/good digital cameras are these days. I could take better pictures with my Iphone. I almost want to change professions and become a real estate agent because there seem to be so many hacks out there.

    What respectable golf coarse allows drones on their coarse?

    Exactly. If I could just stand dealing with people all the time I'd have done it. The guy who sold me a home and sold my home is a good agent and those guys roll all over the bored housewives and slackers. They sell more homes in a month than others do all year.

    So true! Real estate photos and videos are THE worst! Usually done with their iphones, which wouldn't even be completely horrible if they just took an extra moment or two for lighting and to adjust the exposure and to make sure they hold completely still until after the shutter is completely finished. And for their virtual video tours, instead of footage that requires Dramamine, just invest $100 in one of these ...

    ....and slow down when panning!

    With the onslaught of drones, this will be an idea that has little to no value based on competition. I don't give a shit about someones idea of how to play a hole. Part of the fun of playing a new course is figuring it out as you go.

    Actually, with the ability of phones to take slow mo video, his video caddie is a pretty good idea for the driving range if it can be modified to hold a phone.
