For the golfers out there, this week marks the start of the prestigious Masters tournament at Augusta National. To celebrate this week, here are some notable golf apps worth downloading and checking out: Tiger Woods My Swing, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, and TSN at the Masters (a reminder).
Tiger Woods My Swing – The Official Tiger Woods iPhone App
This is Tiger Wood’s official iPhone app and it’s an awesome one. You can see video lessons from Tiger himself, plus it will also capture your swing and compare it to Tiger’s using every single club in the bag. It’s a powerful app made by the makers of GolfShot:
â€¢ Enhanced video capture
â€¢ Side-by-side swing comparison with Tiger Woods
â€¢ Advanced swing analysis and how-to demonstrated by Woods
â€¢ Swing comparisons, sharing and feedback tools tied to friends and community members
â€¢ Video updates from Tiger, exclusive for members only
â€¢ High quality video of each club from both Face On and Down the Line angles
â€¢ How-to video directly from Tiger covering swing analysis
â€¢ Video clips from Tiger when heâ€™s on Tour, exclusive for members only
â€¢ Time delay to allow for self-recording
â€¢ Record voice and text notes that save with your swing
â€¢ Overlay â€œTiger Linesâ€ that demonstrate proper technique
â€¢ Compare your swing side-by-side with Tiger, a friend or one of your own
â€¢ Exclusive how-to from Tiger on use of video analysis and proper technique
â€¢ Draw custom lines and see progress over time
â€¢ All saved videos stored to free personal profile at Golfshot.com
â€¢ View on your personal computer at home or work
â€¢ Get feedback from friends, community members, coaches
The app retails for $9.99, but offers lots of value with the videos along from Tiger Woods. I’m glad they teamed up with the makers of GolfShot, as their apps are always great.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2012
If you’ve played the original Tiger Woods PGA Tour, the new 2012 version brings an improvement to gameplay and the graphics. The latter ‘pops’ out on the iPhone 4’s Retina Display.
New features include the Tiger Challenge and ‘Closest to the Pin’ Facebook challenges. There’s currently a Lite version if you want to take it for a spin. The app is available for $6.99, but watch out as EA always has surprise sales. I’m going to be picking this up for sure.
Reminder: TSN Masters Live iPhone app
Just a friendly reminder to download the TSN at the Masters iPhone app. It provides live TV coverage from the Masters tournament right on your iPhone. It doesn’t get any better plus it’s free. Click here to download it.
