A 100 MPH Drone May Change Sports Broadcasting as We Know It; Ask Rory McIlroy

Mar 9, 2022

Operating the drone was Jay Christensen , a freelance filmmaker based in Minneapolis who has piloted drones for content teams across sports. Christensen has commanded drone videos for the NHL’s All-Star Game and Winter Classic events, the Minnesota Timberwolves , Barstool Sports , Callaway Golf , Duke University men’s basketball and the Dallas Baptist University baseball team. Riceman first took notice of Christensen when he uploaded a one-take drone video he choreographed last year inside a Minneapolis bowling alley . Christensen, who works under his JayByrdFilms brand, has commissioned two drone videos for the PGA Tour prior to last month’s Genesis Invitational, first at Caves Valley Golf Club for the BMW Championship in August and then at East Lake Golf Club for the Tour Championship in September. For his third and latest act on Tour, a GoPro camera was attached to Christensen’s drone to capture scenic 4K video of McIlroy’s ball flight at Riviera. Filmmaker Jay Christensen piloting the high-speed drone, trailed by producers Sam Davis, left, and Michael Riceman of the PGA Tour. “We shot at a mixture of 24 frames and 60 frames, so it has that film look to it [and] allows us to go from that live speed to that slo-mo off speed,” Riceman says. “When the ball is in flight, we were flying with it and then we ramp down to the off speed at 60 frames to sit with the ball a little bit longer in flight.”  Because of the loud noise made by the drone during flight, the audio matched with the video of McIlroy’s practice shot is not live but recorded sounds from the PGA Tour’s sound design team, such as clips of the club hitting the ball and the ball rolling onto the green. The final post-produced video was shared to the Tour’s social channels on Feb. 16 during the first round of the Genesis Invitational, two days after McIlroy’s practice shot was filmed. McIlroy, who re-shared the video on his own Twitter account , was happy to support production of the drone shot. The on-course spectacle even drew the attention of other players to the point where they wanted to pilot the drone themselves. Fox Sports and the MLB Network have also introduced drones into baseball broadcasts. “The [players] see it and can't believe that somebody is flying a drone with that precision through tight spots,” Riceman says. “Sometimes they'll want to put the goggles on to see, or maybe try it out themselves. From a fan perspective, I think you hear it first, and then you see it.”  Riceman directed four takes of McIlroy’s practice shot, eventually settling on the third attempt as the best footage to publish. In addition to social media, the video appeared during a livestream on PGA Tour Live. Riceman thinks it is “just the beginning” of how drones will be used during broadcasts. Fox Sports used drones during last year’s MLB Field of Dreams game broadcast, while MLB Network recently used drones for the first time during its broadcasts of college games in February. “It's different for a post produced element versus live. But could [drones] be utilized the way that we've utilized blimps before?” he suggests. “I think it's one of the tools to maybe showcase a different side of golf and to go to new places, new vantage points.”  The PGA Tour is working with Christensen again this week to fly a one-take drone shot of the grounds crew preparing the course at TPC Sawgrass for The Players Championship. The crown jewel of PGA Tour-operated events begins Thursday and will see Christensen capture drone footage of the No. 17 Island Green at TPC Sawgrass, one of golf’s most signature holes. “You'll hear the birds chirping and the grass being mowed, and [the drone] will be flying through as everybody's working,” Riceman says. “Everything from the mowing of the grass to the meticulous cutting of the pin, the sprinklers going off, all the beautiful flowers being planted. We'll go through the final three-hole stretch, which is an iconic stretch in golf and showcase that.”    Photo credits: Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images (drone); PGA Tour (Christensen, Davis and Riceman); Leon Halip/Getty Images (catcher Nick Hundley and umpire Jeff Kellogg) Latest
