Anyone have any recommendations for free golf apps? I recently downloaded 18 Birdies and its pretty good, just wondering if there is something better out there I am missing.

I mainly use it for the GPS showing distance to the green and to determine my handicap, also use the "shot tracking" feature to measure how far I can hit each club.

i use the app SwingU, i don't track scores or handicap, but it's good for using as a gps.

Played 9 holes on tuesday night at Heart of America with a buddy then played a solo 18 sesh at Minor Park last night....Got a legit birdie on a par 4!!! Just crushed the drive 176 yards then used my PW to put the ball about 5 ft away from the hole. Gawd that was a great feeling.
Nice work! I play Minor often. Hit a brother up.

A friend referred me to the Callaway pre-owned golf website and I bought a Rogue driver. I'm really excited.  :Woot:

The new drivers are like a cheat code, it’s basically impossible to not hit some part of the sweet spot.  You will feel like a new man.

i've been getting online coaching the last few weeks, and it's helped so much. it's nice to have a structure to a swing, i never really had a swing teacher before. but its so helpful to know what's wrong instead of watching my swing on video and trying to make guesses. would recommend.

I took lessons a many years ago. Huge help. The day it really clicked was when he put me on the swing trainer. Forced me to feel what a good swing path with one piece takeaway should be. Highly recommend it.

i think people get turned off when teachers talk about angles or anything else technical, but really that's just to find a problem, the solution is usually simple and feel-based, or fixable through drills.

there's affordable ways to get coached too, i pay $90 and will get around 5 swing reviews done, i think it's a good deal.

He got the average condition, as did I, and said they were completely fine. The only wear was you could see where the previous guy hit the ball with his irons because he hit it in the same spot every damn time.

Guyz, I played the 9 hole Heart of America course yesterday after work and shot a 42! 5 pars! What?!?

I play this course all the time after work and my previous best score was 47, usually I shoot between 50-54.

At this pace I should be on the tour by 2021  :gocho:

I got fitted for Callaway irons two weeks ago. It was a surprise from my wife. I'm still waiting on the goddamn things to get delivered soon. Will report back.

so i fixed early extension in my swing, and my consistency has shot up like crazy. must be one of the most important things in a swing cause it's night and day.

Nice sticks, Wacky.

God I love golf. If I'm hitting the fairway, I've put up some good rounds this year. I need to hit them more, or get a lot better at scrambling, but have had a lot of fun this year getting more birdies than ever.

Playing at a 9 handi in 2019.
