I finally found a good piece of software that can take full resolution snapshots from the HD videos. VLC media player is a popular tool for view photos and videos. It has a function that generates images using the full resolution of the video.
The videos contain lots of swings and golf shots and views of the courses. I’ve captured 128 snapshots and uploaded them to an album on our Flickr photo sharing website.

Here is a sampling of some of these snapshots…
The edited videos have been rendered in High Definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
Keep in mind that when playing the videos they may not play in the full HD mode. YouTube will determine automatically the resolution that the videos will be displayed depending on the speed of your internet connection.
During the tour a variety of short videos were taken using smart phones. They have been uploaded to our YouTube channel.
These short videos are also embedded below in this blog post.
Following today’s 9th and final round on the tour, at the amazing Old Head Golf Links, the Shamrock Cup champion is…. MikeL. Mike finished 1st Low Net on the final day with a stellar net score of 77 in very difficult high winds and rain all day. Mike also finished 3rd low net the previous day at Old Head Golf Links. To win the Shamrock Cup, Mike jumped 5 places from 6th to 1st over the final two playoff rounds at Old Head.

Here are all of the daily winners of the Low Net score each day which included the wearing of the Shamrock jacket for 24 hours…

Round 9 was the final round of the tour and played for the second day in a row at the spectacular Old Head Golf Links.
The weather was poor. The wind was blowing all day and the rain started by the second hole and did not let up. If the Round 3 at Doonbeg was a 10 on a scale of 10 for the worst weather any of us had every played in then Round 9 at Old Head was a solid 8 out of 10. To play Old Head along the cliffs on a good day is a challenge. But to play it with the wind up and the rain coming at you sideways was quite an experience.
The Low Net winner of the day and the overall winner of the Shamrock Cup was MikeL.
