Are you an avid golfer? Or even just a casual weekend player? Either way, there is a lot you can do to improve on your golfing experience, all with just a few touches of your smart phone screen. Here are five awesome Android apps for golfers:
Golfshot GPS. This app, touted to be the most advanced of its type, allows you to choose from a database of over 38,000 golf courses in order to calculate the exact distance to the hole you are targeting so that you can choose the right club. You can also view layups specific to your club choice, track the distance of your hits, compare course angles, and view a statistical analysis of your game and swing stats so that you can make improvements in the future.
Golfcard. If you are looking for an awesome scorecard app, then Golfcard is for you. Through Golfcard, you can record chips, putts, penalties (tee off and first putt distance), and sand shots for each hole, as well as a running score. This app also integrates with oobgolf.com in order to provide you with a detailed report of your game stats.
Let’s Golf. Looking for some entertainment? Then you need a good golf game. Let’s Golf is one of the best golf simulation games you can find for your Android, and it even comes in versions II and III for when you outplay the original. Explore 63 holes in 4 different world-class golf locations – all in 3D – and switch to advanced mode for a real challenge.
Tiger Woods My Swing. Want to know how to swing like Tiger Woods? Silly question, right? While it is true that you may never win the PGA Tour, you can certainly improve on your game using this high-tech app that makes use of video swing analysis to show you how you can alter your swing and get the most out of it.
Weather2. Sure, any regular weather app will tell you what temperature it is outside, and should even be pretty good at predicting your chances of being rained off the golf course. However, Weather2 is specially designed for golfers (and other outdoor athletes) in that it provides you with real-time stats that include not just the temperature, but also sports-specific weather conditions that will affect your gaming experience.
The next time you head out for that game of golf, don’t forget to bring your Android . . . but only after you’ve loaded it up with the right tools. These awesome apps will not only help you improve your game, but will also help you get more fun out of your game.
