Smylie Kaufman Did His Own ‘Protracer’ on Snapchat and It’s Hilarious

This video from Smylie Kaufman shows that you don’t always need fancy technology to create your own “protracer” to follow someone’s tee shot.

Kaufman recreates the Protacer effect perfectly as he films fellow golfer Erik Compton’s tee shot.

All you need is Snapchat and a steady hand (er finger) and you have exactly the same Protracer that a professional golf television broadcast has. Compare it to Dustin Johnson’s stellar approach on 18 at the 2016 U.S. Open.

Virtually the same.
