As requested, this caveman did some digging to come up with some of the best golf apps available for your smart phone! Let me preface this by saying that there are hundreds of apps for the iphone and android markets, but most leave a bit to be desired. Here are a few that I have found that myself or a few of my other neanderthal friends have used and loved.
This app includes a free golf GPS/statistics tracker and is backed by a large community, the website stores your performance statistics and offers a social forum to leave comments, compare scores and compete with golfers around the world. You can also upgrade for a more detailed gps/yardage calculator.
Probably one of the best gps enabled golf apps on the market. Similar to Golf Logix, this app shows you exact yardage and targets for over 22k courses worldwide, and helps you track your stats. The downside is that it runs in at $29.99, but if you are willing to pay the one time fee, its worth it.
Kind of like the Game Genie of the old school NES generation, these apps are iTunes most popular golf instruction apps with over 40k downloads in 2010. Filled with tips, tricks and hints as well as practice drills in order to help you step up your game! And once again is backed by a great online community to further aid in your fairway domination.
The goal is simple, to help aid you in developing a consistent swing tempo by helping you model it after any of a number of great pros including Tiger, Vijay and Sergio.
Sitting at $9.99, its like a full rule picture book. If you have questions for just about any rule you could think of in any situation you might find yourself in, you can be sure to find your answers here.
Keep yourself up to date with live scoring from PGA, Nationwide & Champions tour. You can also gain instant access to golfer bios, videos and schedules. Perfect for any die hard golf fan who wants to constantly be in the know!
I don’t really need to describe this much. Its a great little golf game to enjoy whether you are at work dreaming about the golf course, stuck in traffic dreaming about the golf course, or listening to your wife and dreaming about the golf course.
What’s your favorite golf app? If you have any that I may have missed let me know!
