Golf apps starting to become popular

Wouldn’t it be nice to just pull out your smartphone on the golf course and quickly know how far you are from the cup? Who needs caddies when you have a great golf app?

The App industry has already teed off. GolfLogix is the leading app producer in golf. They just signed seven-time PGA tour winner Zach Johnson. He will wear their logo and market their golf App. The App finds courses and measures distances. As Johnson says, “knowing the exact distance to a pin and other locations from tee to green drastically improves my course management and, in turn, my ability to score.” But of course, the App is not limiting its functionality. Johnson says GolfLogix offers an “amazing array of free services” so that ordinary golfers are beamed tour-quality information.

Golfers cannot escape this alluring opportunity by just changing smart phones. The GolfLogix GPS App is compatible with over 60 smart phone models. It provides imagery of each hole, keeps score, and includes statistical tracking. There is already the ability to examine each pin placement, hazard locations, and landing zones. The statistical analysis will probably soon track who was closest to the pin on a par 3, who had the longest drive, and who was closest to the middle of the fairway. It will probably soon allow you to count strokes of others in your foursome. Then somebody is going to storm off the course when past suspicions are now confirmed. Increased acrimony is just a download away.

If you read the whole article, you’ll see that not everyone is pleased about apps on the golf course. It slows down play. But if this can help you pick the right club, who care – right?

  

Sub70 Golf Shirts

With the holidays here, it’s a great time to pick up golf gear as gifts or just to shop for yourself. Check out this line of stylish golf shirts from Sub70 featured in Bullz-Eye.com’s Holiday Gift Guide in the Guy Stuff section.

Many guys love golf, so golf gear is usually a great option. If you’re shopping for a golf fan who also has a sense of style, check out the golf shirts and other gear from Sub70. Fashion trends for men have evolved in recent years as a slimmer, more athletic fit has become the standard in everything from suits to t-shirts. This more stylish look has also had an impact on the usually stodgy golf world, as younger golfers have made their mark on the tour. Sub70 embraces these new style trends as the “classic golf shirt goes modern.” They have a wide variety of European-fit polos in a full range of styles and colors. We checked out the Zane/White golf shirt pictured here and loved the styling. Some of the shirts are trendier than others but the modern styles definitely stand out as something new and fresh. The all-polyester shirts are very comfortable, but they are definitely tighter and the sizes run smaller than expected. They are ideal for a leaner and more athletic build, so it’s not for guys who consistently choose beer and the buffet line over the gym!

Golf gloves matter

Golf is a game of precision, and the little things matter. David Medsker reviewed the Hirzl Trust Control gloves:

Let’s state the obvious up front: golf is an expensive sport, and if you’re anything like us, there are certain pieces of equipment where you tend to, well, go cheap. The one area where function completely dominated form in terms of gear has always been the golf glove. Does it come in black? That’ll work, ring us up. Needless to say, when we were asked to review Hirzl’s golf gloves, at first it seemed a bit silly. Now, of course, we know better.

The weather conditions for our initial test were about as ideal as one could ask for – partly cloudy with temperatures in the low 70s. This means that we didn’t get to really test how well the gloves (we used Hirzl’s Trust Control gloves) would function in extreme heat or rain, but you can work up a sweat even on the driving range in weather like that, and the gloves, which contain kangaroo leather (who knew?) with mesh on the tops so your hands can breathe, remained bone dry the entire time.

Check out the entire review.

  

Garia golf cart goes street legal

The Garia LSV features a drive train built by an Italian company that also produces Ducati gearboxes, and its components are made by the same company that supplies Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Volvo.

With automotive features unseen in the golf cart industry The Garia LSV has – as the first golf cart ever – entered the automotive league and earned its right to be called a car as opposed to a cart.
