No such app exists. An iphone could never do any of those things.

There are apps that detect speed (mph) so I dont see why it cant exist but I believe those use gps.

The apps that detect speed use GPS and/or the accelerometers inside the phone.  They can detect how fast the phone is moving (and in what direction), but they can't detect how fast something outside the phone is moving.  That would take either a) something attached to the external object with accelerometers and a way to transmit the data back to the phone, or b) the phone being radar capable (transmit/receive), which it isn't.  I suppose somebody could develop an app which let you attach your iPhone to the golf club and use the accelerometers that way, but I'm thinking that would probably be a little bulky and dangerous to the phone! :-)

There are several devices on the market which attach to the golf club shaft and transmit swing speed, club path, etc. back to the phone - but as far as I know, all they can sense is what the club is doing and how fast it's doing it.  They don't provide all the information that a TrackMan or other similar device does.

Just put a ball on the face of the phone when you have it on GPS mode.  Take a swing and it will measure the amount of force you imparted on the ball and the distance.

You need to get something like the SwingByte or 3bays. It attaches to the club and will measure swing speed reasonably well among other things.

The iPhone is awesome and so is the development environment.

I was just going to say that someone could clip the phone to your glove and here it is:
