You'd really rather be on the golf course than on that Zoom video call, right?

At Wisconsin.Golf, we know how you feel. So we've gathered up seven photos from photographer Nile Young Jr. showcasing the stunning beauty of Wisconsin's golf courses that you can use as your virtual background.

Whether you're online with friends, family or work colleagues, you're sure to impress them with these shots. And you don't have to put your messy room on display behind you.

Here's how to set up your virtual background in Zoom:

1. Download one of the images to your computer (right-click "Save Image As").

2. In your Zoom account, go to the Settings > Virtual Background and hit the plus icon (+) to add the photo from your computer to your selection of backgrounds. From here, you can choose a photo as your default background.

3. If you want to add or change a background while already in a video chat, click the caret symbol (^) to the right of the video icon at the bottom of your screen and click "Choose Virtual Background."

Zoom has more detailed instructions on virtual backgrounds on its website.

Note: You may see the image reversed on your Zoom screen but viewers in the video chat will see it correctly.
