My bebrassie test I don't like sensors on the club or belt. I just want to record my game using the phone. Besides, I don't want to have to get my phone out every shot to enter something. So I tried bebrassie ... First I have to say that there is a free trial period. I think that's good. The principle is simple. Go on the tee, start round on the app, put the phone in your pocket and off you go. If you like, you can use a range finder, a yardage book and an electronic scorecard on the phone. I didn't do that because I didn't want to use the phone during the round. At the end of the round (I only played 9 holes for the test) I finished recording. Then I was asked to enter my score ... which I did (including the number of putts). Okay, I remembered it well. Then you see a short summary and then upload your round. Until then everything is easy. But now you have to edit your round. This is necessary to get the advertised Strokes Gained statistics. The edit process works very intuitive. For each hole you can see the hole from top view. And there is one white dot per shot you made. The putts are already on the green. To make it easier to understand where you made your shots, you get shown your walked way (GPS) and (at least full swings) there are large red circles located where the phone has detected a shot/swing. Now you drag and drop the white dots where you had hit a shot. During the installation, I have defined my personal shot lengths in the settings, so in the table on the right (on the iPad, on the phone it is synonymous - but I have not tried), the clubs are displayed, which I should have taken for the according distance. For example, I had to change my driver twice, because I hit it so short that bebrassie proposed a wood 5 for me. I needed more than 10 minutes for the 9-hole round ... but on the first holes I had to look all over the functions to get an overview. I'm sure in the future I'll make it in 5 minutes. At the end you have to sign your round (like in a tournament) and then get directly to the statistics. And here comes the real value of bebrassie: you get really cool and meaningful statistics. Even though a 9-hole round still does not provide enough data for all categories, bebrassie shows me what a hacker I am ... but I also see that I putt really well. All in all, bebrassie made a good first impression. But you realize that the developers are sitting in Germany ... real engineers, everything is very precisely adjustable.
Hi all, I'm on a drive this year to get my handicap down by a few shots. I've had some lessons and am making progress with my technique. I'm also making more time to practice. As my practice time is limited to 2-3 hours a week, I want make sure I'm smart about what I work on. With that in my mind, I want to start tracking my stats so I can see what areas of my game are costing me shots. I've downloaded Game Golf and used it yesterday for the first time. First impressions seem good but I've had some teething problems uploading/editing the round. My questions to you guys... 1) Do you track your stats? If so, what do you use? 2) How do you use your stats to inform practice? 3) Have you seen noticeable improvements in your scores since adopting this approach? Be great to get your input...
Let me introduce ourselves. My name is Heidi and I represent a very cool golf app called STRIKER GOLF GPS. One of your forum administrators was nice enough to allow us to present on your forum. We are hoping to find 10 of your members who might be willing to test out ( for FREE ) our app and offer constructive reviews. I am attaching a form letter that we send out to prospective writers describing Striker Golf; but in summary, we developed this mobile app for the sole purpose for golfers to more easily play games and interact through its unique scorecard, you are playing match play, team play, ryder cup games, or handicaps. The scorecard is attached to a world class GPS that is fast and accurate and better with your batteries than some of the leading competitors. Best of all, unlike leading apps like Golfshot, you never have to leave the screen to put in scores or stats. Note that a full 18 hole round will take up about 20% of your battery. Finally, the social network not only allows you to keep track of your friends, but allows you to input your friends easily next time you want to play with them. You can even easily put them into "groups" so you can chat to your "sunday group" separate from your " work group". For the 10 MyGolfSpy users to test this out at no charge, I will need your email address in order to identify you in the database as "complimentary". I hope you enjoy what we have to offer. And please give us constructive feedback. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org. you can also "friend" me on facebook!
