The 5 Best Golf Apps for Apple Watch 2019

TOP PICK (1/5) Golfshot: Golf GPS + Scorecard The team was unanimous on what app would be the top pick. Golfshot got pretty much everything that you could ask for in a GPS tracker with perfect interaction with the Apple Watch. Of course, the "Pro" functions definitely outweighs the material that comes for free but this shouldn't hold you back. The reasoning should absolutely be that if you intend to use this app with your Apple Watch instead of a GPS watch the pro-functions would definitely be something to consider. If not, try it out with the free version at first. One really cool feature is the interaction with Siri to keep it as hands-free as possible! Here are some of the free functions: Distance to the middle (sometimes, all we need?) Register every stroke and what club you used Invite friends to tee-times and share [...]

Tiger Woods Golf Clubs – How Tiger Won The Masters in 2019

Tiger Woods Golf Clubs - How Tiger won The Master 2019 Tiger Woods has done the impossible. 3 955 days after his latest major title he did it again, at Augusta in 2019. With tears in his eyes, he told reporters that it feels unreal - and he sure did prove the doubters wrong. Before the tournament, a lot of critics claimed that he "should just quit while he is ahead" and that "he can never again compete with the likes of  Justin Thomas, Rory Mcilroy and, Dustin Johnson ever again". He even proclaimed that "I have proved that I have what it takes to win". And he said this before the tournament. After 4 back surgeries and over 11 years, it was time for Tiger to win his 15th major title. Only 2 years ago he claimed it was "bad enough that he couldn't get up out of bed". [...]

The 5 Best Golf Iron Sets for Beginners 2019

Review: The Best Golf Iron Clubs for Beginners 2019 Titleist 716 AP 1 Iron Set 7 Iron Loft: 30° 7 Iron Length: ''37 Handicap recommendation: 54-15 Club attribute: Game-Improvement Pros: Large and forgiving sweet spot. Great distance and ball flight. Cons: A bit "chunky" Bottom line: A perfect golf club for beginners who looks to add forgiveness to their golf shots. As many game-improvement irons, it has a large back with weights divided into the toes of the club, allowing forgiving attributes to ball strikes away from the surface sweet spot.  The "Tungsten" attribute seemingly divides the weights even more optimal which not only improves direction if miss-hits, but also the distance of the shot. These clubs are absolutely gorgeous!  We have seldom come across clubs as the AP1 716 that looks so good and ads this much confidence. >>>> [...]
