ARL's Virtual Eye golf team turned up at this years US Open at the Oakmont Golf Club and set about making the course look identical for the animated and real broadcast pictures, and also showed both viewers and golfers how to navigate this virtually unplayable golf course. The Virtual Eye team has been covering golf since 1999 but no one can remember a golf course as tough as Oakmont, a course where the best golfers in the world shot from 5 to 20 over par for the tournament.
The US open is always a highlight for the Virtual Eye golf team, and this year the graphics were not only beamed around the world via ESPN satellite coverage, they were shot across the internet on ESPN Webcast, and also to the world famous ESPN sports centre as they analyzed the day’s proceedings.
