  6. Here are the details you're after (in blue), straight from Mobitee:

    1) The description says that the app displays distance to hazards, however on a lot of the UK holes I've checked it only shows tee and green distances. Is there a way for users to add hazards for their local course or do we wait for the Mobitee developers to go through and add all that extra info? As this new version has just been came out, the description is not up to date yet. The one online is about the old version which only displays nearest hazards. The new version allows user to know distance from his position to any place on the map, which is much more powerful!

    2)  Markers on the courses (http://www.mobitee.com/golfs/details/id/14775-Horton+Park%28Millenium%29) seem to be from the very front of the tee to the very back of the green. How does the app know whether the green is 10 yards deep or 40 yards deep based on one marker for the green? Markers on website are only displayed to show holes count and position (course layout), data into the app don’t use those markers; our team place markers independently.

    3)  With the shot tracking, does it automatically remove the user-set figure for certain club distances? e.g. if I mark my driver as "10 yards" and then I track a driver shot at 250 yards will it only use the actual distance I've hit with it or will it average the user's data and the actuals? Is there a way to use only user-set data or only recorded data or even a way to use user-set until real data is made available from the shot tracker? You will have choice to use distance get from shot tracking, or average of all distances get for this club or a customized distance

    4)  I remember seeing an article recently which said that the use of an iPhone (example) on a golf course is against the Rules of Golf for tournament play but I can't see any information about it on your website. Is it legal? Yes, this kind of tool are authorized by R&A; but for competition, you must previously ask your golf club (local rules)

    Thanks for your questions!  If any other members need clarification, send your thoughts my way...

  7. Mobitee recently ran a contest on TheSandtrap.com challenging members to download the Lite version of their app and try it out on the course.  We received quite a few requests for additional information about the features available, so here are the full details straight from the source!  Bon apetit.

    "Mobitee is the best GPS assistant, scorecard keeper, distance calculator, rangefinder and virtual coach, all rolled into one little app. Inside, you’ll find tools that have been developed by golfers for golfers. Yes, this application was made for you.

    Mobitee is your personal, portable golf caddy. You’ll instantly know your distances and scores, as well as see an aerial view of each hole. This cross-platform app even gives you club advice for each shot you make to help you improve your game.

    Want to know the distance remaining to the hole? No problem, check in with Mobitee to find out how much farther it is to any of the greens, hazards, doglegs, whatever you want. In a flash, your virtual coach will advise you which club you need and how hard you have to hit the ball, so that you can perform your best on the course.

    Want to see an aerial shot of the hole you’re about to play? The app’s satellite images and flyover videos are incredibly helpful.  In addition, you have an automatic and interactive scorecard complete with handicap scoring.

    To follow your progress, the new Shot Tracking tool enables you to record and track all your hits. It also shows you your covered distances and calculates your average hitting distance with each club.  Mobitee offers you a global selection of 25,000 courses and counting. Go ahead and use one of these, or add your own via the Mobitee website from your PC.  Whichever course you decide upon - the built-in guide offers you the address, lets you know what’s nearby, gives you route guidance and prices.

    Thanks to TheSandtrap community for the overwhelming interest in GolfConditioningNow's trial contest.   We read many great entries, so it was super challenging to narrow it down to our two winners:  SlapShotGolfer and Dr_Fu_Manchu.  Congratulations and best of luck!

    As our contestants embark on a 6 week golf conditioning journey, we invite you to subscribe to this thread and follow their progress.  Each winner will provide us updates directly, as well as respond to questions that you may have about the program.  Here are their stories - I'm sure that many of our members can relate to their reasons, frustrations, and goals.


    I'm currently not doing anything fitness related besides just playing and practicing golf. I do quite a bit of work around the house, but nothing scheduled in terms of cardio or weight training. I have a hereditary bad back and know I need to get into some kind of routine, but just haven't had the motivation to get it started.

    I'd love the opportunity to not only get into better shape, but to see how it would help my health, my golf game and especially my family. They are the one's that are hurt when I'm in pain or can't do something.

    - SlapShotGolfer (Age 27, Nebraska)


    I am a 35 year old sales manager who travels weekly, so working out and eating healthy has always been a challenge, but I always managed to find a gym while on the road and do my best to select healthy options on the menu.  I have always been a gym rat and up until recently was competing in triathlons. I was never over muscular, but you could tell that I lifted weights.

    Then I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which halted my healthy life style.  I felt that all my hard work failed me so I kind of gave up on the gym and eating healthy.  Even though I have been cleared by the doctor to resume my exercise routine, I haven't. I actually haven't stepped into a gym in over 3 months. The longest I have gone since I was 16. That's why I need this program to kick start my old self back in to effect.

    As I said, I just joined a country club.  Prior to joining this summer I hadn't played golf in about 10 months due to many things:  I took a promotion with my company, we moved across the country, had our first kid, and dealt with my health issues.  But now I am playing at least once a week.  Before I quit playing I was a 16 handicap, but I am now playing to about a 20 or so (official handicap isn't up yet).  I would love to get more power into my game and finally out drive the long hitters in my group.  I typically drive the ball about 225 or so.

  11. Sponsored content by 4Headwear

    We've noticed that a few of our "thin on top" members have expressed frustration with sweat-stained hats which are either a pain to clean, or are too thick and uncomfortable on the head.  Before you replace yet another hat, consider a new product available from 4Headwear.

    Our partner and the owner of 4Headwear, Steve Aronson (a bald guy), tells us “ according to the American Dermatology Association there are 36 million men in the US that have a receding hairline or no hair at all.”  He has created a line of hats specifically for this audience. “4HeadWear hats have been designed from the inside out for maximum comfort and performance.  All of our hats provide a double layer of moisture wicking fabric where bald men and men with receding hairlines perspire the most.  This design feature and the extremely lightweight fabric keeps your head cooler, drier, and more comfortable.”

    To highlight just a few more unique features of his products:

    • 33% lighter than traditional golf hats
    • Wicks moisture five times faster than traditional hats – the entire hat is made with wicking material
    • Machine washable - comes out of the washer ready to wear and sweat stain-free
    • No metal button – eliminates uncomfortable touch point and heat source

    Interested in trying the hat out yourself in exchange for a testimonial?  Stay tuned, as 4headwear will be working with TheSandtrap.com community to distribute a few samples.  In the meantime, check out their website for more information on how to get one for yourself.
