App Review: Golf Like A Tour Pro For iPhone
Brush up on your golfing skills or simply enjoy learning new tricks with Golf Like A Tour Pro for iPhone/iPod Touch.
Golf Like A Tour Pro was created with the aim to assist golfers of all skill levels in refining and improving their golfing technique.
The app is designed around the teachings of PGA Tour Pro Kevin Streelman. Golf Like A Tour Pro is an instructional app that includes 50 shot set-ups, many strategies, and high quality videos all narrated and supported by Kevin Streelman.
Streelman analyzes each situation and provides users with the proper setup and tips in summary form. Furthermore, users may watch a video of the setup/shot from within the app with the option to watch it in slow motion for extra detail.
The video feature is quite amazing as it’s one thing to read what to do but it’s much more helpful to actually see what to do. The other nice feature of the videos is users do not have to leave the app to watch them.
Users may view information on nine different shot selections per hole such as from bunkers, fairway, the green, water and so on. There is also 50 setup selections from different lies such as uphill, downhill, flop, buried bunker and more. Each situation has an analysis of best practices, tips from Streelman and, the aforementioned videos.
Lastly, players may make favorites folders to store often used shots whether playing a round of golf or using the driving range.
Whether you are a pro or casual player, the instructional summaries and included videos are extremely helpful to assist players in not only improving their game but ensuring that they are using proper technique.
