I'm looking for 8-12 interested golfers (or more, the more the merrier!) to act as a Pilot group for a free app., SocialPutts, that I developed to help golfers to play more golf. The app. uses a proprietary calendar function to prompt you for your availability to play golf, check you and your buddies' calendars and propose times to play. It include over 15,000 courses, 400+ public golfer groups and more. We also work with a few courses to enable golfers to book tee times directly through the app. A little background: My interest and my friends' interest in finding ways to play more golf together led me to develop SocialPutts following a guys' golf trip to Tampa. It took forever to plan that trip, but it was one of the most relaxing, rejuvenating trips of our lives. Over the years prior to the trip we had gradually squeezed golf out of our busy lives, but we came away from the trip believing and realizing that we were better, more balanced husbands and fathers when we made a point of having a little golf time to ourselves. When we got home we didn't want to go back to how things were. We wanted to find a way to make it easier to play golf more often. We are all in our late 30's/early 40's, have young families, jobs, coach golf, soccer, baseball, attend dance recitals, struggle to fit in date nights, etc. We have very busy but flexible schedules that can change quickly, and we wanted a way to see when everyone's available to play golf without the seemingly endless stream of texts, emails and phone calls trying to coordinate a tee time. What started as a hobby 4 years ago as www.socialputts.com has grown into the app. and is starting to gain interest outside of our circle of friends. Friends are telling friends about it, and a few courses are interested in using it to unite their golfers to help them to play more often and grow course revenue. I'm interested in getting your opinion of the app., what you like about it, what could be improved and if it's something you and your friends will use. My goal is to have an app. that's useful to you. Any and all feedback is appreciated. SocialPutts (one word) is free on the AppStore (iOS) and Google Play (Android). Please download it (links below) and let me know what you think. Thanks! AppStore: http://bit.ly/SPAppStore Google Play: http://bit.ly/SPDroid
I know GameGolf does a great job of compiling approach shot data while on the course, but for anyone else out there who practices hitting into a field, I found an app that has helped me map my shot zones. http://www.appliedstudios.com/dtool/09f03e59 When I first used it I was a bit disappointed as it only measures in a continuous path. In other words, I can only measure the distance from where I swung to the first ball, then from the first ball to the second, and so forth. But then I realized it doesn't matter as much how far each shot went. It matters more how big the zone is and its proximity to the target. So for the zone linked above, I measured a known target that was about 130 yards away and hit several shots to it. My first measurement is from where I shot, my second to the target, and the subsequent measurements are the shot locations. The GPS might be a little wonky - it measured one of my 6i shots at over 190yds. I can't BS that distance in the How Far Do You Hit You Clubs thread, much less hit one that far in reality. But I'm familiar enough with this field through google maps and with the terrain, that I can tell when it's pretty close. If anyone knows of a better way to do this, please share.
