The method comprises utilizing a camera to track a surface of a golf course, matching a three dimensional model of a course from a virtual scan of the course and marrying it to live video, and rendering graphics in a broadcast over and relative to said golf course, wherein said graphics include a broadcast overlay providing player or course statistics, real time carry distance, and three dimensional animation of a golf ball during flight.
