Golf Like A Tour Pro ($4.99, avg review rating 5/5 stars) is designed to help you master different types of holes and terrains on the course. From Amazon:
This app features professional golfer Kevin Streelman, ranked among the top 100 players on the PGA Tour. Streelman will illustrate exactly how to set up–a key step many golfers struggle with–and execute the shot in the various situations you may face during the round–tee, fairway, rough, bunker, pitching, putting, and more. Video clips walk you through the shot and show you how to do it in slow motion.
With Golf Like a Tour Pro, if you are facing a difficult shot on the course, you can actually see what to do with a few clicks on your phone. It’s great for the driving range, too. Much better than trying to remember what you saw on a video at home or during a lesson a month ago. You may not end up on the PGA Tour, but you can learn how to pull off tough shots and lower your handicap with this high-quality app.
So next time you head out to the links, bring your Fire along!
