Recording a birdie ... in the hole, of course

recording a puttWe want to find a way to include the sound of a golf ball dropping into the cup, so I took advantage of Steven Mann getting in a round of golf to do some field recording.

We were on the practice green of the Monterey Pines Golf Course, and spent about five minutes getting the recording of Steven dropping in some short putts.

We're calling those "stunt putts" in lieu of getting Dylan Jackson himself to step up for a field recording, because that just it makes it all the more authentic, right?
