USGA Rules of Golf App
Rules change and golfers aren’t always known for their honesty (present company excepted, of course!) so wouldn’t it be nice to have a guide that teaches you the rules of the game at the tip of your fingers? Lucky for you, yes, there’s an app for that! The USGA Rules of Golf App only costs 3.99 and is a surefire way of stopping any argument between you and your golf buddies…except for the ones about who is buying the next round at the 19th Hole…you’re on your own with that one!
You swing the club and miss the ball completely, step away from the tee, take a deep breath, step back up to the tee, swing…and miss again. The next hole you hit the ball straight in to the water and feel your temper start to sizzle…who would put a water hazard there, why are the birds so loud, how do they expect you to do well when it’s obvious your ball is defective…right? Unfortunately you can’t talk to the world famous sport psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella, but you can consult your Visulax golf app for the small fee of only $4.99 and learn some tips on how to let it go.
Here’s a handy free app that allows you to track your yardage on over 4000 courses nationwide. The number one ranked GPS app is the number one tool you need in your bag of golf tips…and did we mention its free?
My Pro To Go
Having trouble with your swing? Do you think you’re doing everything right, but the ball keeps hooking to the left? Upload this free app to your phone and get help from the pros. All you have to do is get someone to film you as you swing and then upload that video. In about a day, your film will have been analyzed and the results sent back to you along with practice drills to help you improve. (The lessons start at $39 and go up from there, but it’s still a lot cheaper than hiring a flesh and blood instructor.)
