Hi Guys,

This is probably totally the wrong spot, or covering over-walked turf, but whats everyone's go-to-golf toolkit on their phones and watches. Mine is:

 - TeeTimes.co.uk to find cheap rounds
 - PING's app for putter training
 - PGA Tour Live & NowTV to watch the pros
 - Balata - to track my shots and improvement*
 

Love to know what everyone else uses,

Dan

For me I really only have two. PGA Tour app and Hole 19 GPS app. The former is pretty obvious, but I love Hole 19 for a golf gps as you can use it with your phones location services set to off as having that on will drain your battery by the 5th hole. You can download a map and just find a tree or bunker you are close to and set your position based on that and it gives you yardage. I would kind of like an app that keeps track of my yardages with different clubs and or more practice stats.

This sounds boring, but the native photo app for videoing your swing. So easy to use. You think, how hard can it be? Yeah, try videoing on an Android phone. In all honesty, it's been awhile since I tried on an Android phone, so it probably got better. The iOS camera interface is so intuitive and you can just figure out how to use it so quickly. It's fast, I can put a video on YouTube in a flash.

GolfLogix for distances including to hazards, etc., pictures of fairway, when I feel necessary such as on a new course; and a SkyCaddie watch for front, center, back. I like both as quick aids. -Marv

    • 72 years old. Warmed up for 30 minutes, then played 18 holes. After getting home, did a 20 minute EMOM; Minute 1 - 20 jump squats. Minute 2 - 20 Russian Kettlebell swings. After that, did my Max Swing Speed training routine. Stretched, showered, dinner, TV & relax for the rest of the day.

    • I have been playing on and off for the last maybe 12 years and my handicap fluctuates like the tide. The friends who took up the game later than me now have single digit handicaps. I am so inconsistent, I keep hitting over the top.......just frustrated
    • 100% agree on the elbow. I thought about mentioning that in my first post. It looks like the elbow's probably too far behind. But at least as far as the angle goes, it's probably in the 75-80˚ range, which is just more acute than it should be. And given A6 club position looks reasonable I felt like the hip thrust was the bigger issue? Also, @IU426 you say in the OP you've been playing for 30 years. Did you start playing golf when you were 3? Or are you the youngest looking 40-something ever?!
    • I feel like arm lock adds stability and mechanically reduces a degree of freedom in case of a wristy stroke. So ban it.
