Hi all,

 

Writing from Golf121 - a new iPhone app that provides you with a personalised PGA professional video lesson (screenshots below).

 

The core function of the Golf121 app allows you to send videos of your swings to a PGA professional, who will then deliver a comprehensive and personalised video lesson back to your phone.

 

This lesson includes voice over analysis, graphical cues, written reminders and personalised practice drills to help you improve your game. Whether you're in the office, at home, or out on the course, the app will serve as a constant reminder of how to improve your game, anywhere.

 

You can find out more and download the app here: http://golf-121.com/

 

We've got 5 codes for a free lesson with Golf121 to give away, which are worth $13.99 each.

 

Simply leave a reply to this post on why you would like to review Golf121 and we'll select the 5 best responses.

 

And we'd love to hear your feedback on the app - good and bad. We're looking to improve the app for golfers everywhere, so your comments are welcome.

 

Thanks for your interest!

I'm game to test this out.  I've never had a lesson before so I'm curious if what I think I'm doing wrong are the same things that a PGA pro would say I'm doing wrong.  Seems like a pretty cool idea and easy to implement.

Hmm this sounds pretty cool.

 

Windows Phone in the pipeline? Otherwise another one for the misses to test out.

I'll test it out.  Have a broad spectrum of devices to test with too. God knows my swing could use all the help I can beg borrow or steal right now.

FWIW, I just entered a round in Golf121 from my notes, and the process isn't bad.  It was only 9 holes, and it handled it well in terms of the scores, but the warning about an incomplete round is a little disconcerting.  Might want to simply skip the warning if there are 9 hole left empty, but still warn if you have more something other than 9 holes empty.

 

Will get out tonight and give it a shot live for 9 around 4PM :-)

Thanks for all the replies, guys.

 

Have private messaged you with a free lesson code.

 

If anyone else fancies trying out the app, just let us know and we'll send you the code.

 

There's an Android version coming soon, so we'll let you know once that's available.

 

Thanks.

Alright got a chance to use the app live on the course, and overall, it feels pretty good.  I like the statistics input model, it is quicker to use than any other app I have used to date.  It lacks the granularity to do swing by swing gps distance * accuracy measuring, but works well for a manual process. Playing with a friend, I kept score for both of us, and it does support the additional scores fairly well, though there are some navigation quirks that could be easier (editing an error on the secondary score can be a bit tricky).  

 

The top down GPS and position visual is very well implemented though.  

 

Unfortunately, I ran out of time (well, sunshine) last night to video the swing for the lesson portion, and am off the course until Saturday due to a mole removal on my back with 7 stitches.  Saturday however, I should be able to give that section a try.  

 

I have some more notes, and will try to grab a couple of screenshots saturday to really give a more detailed write up then.

 

My initial impression is quite favorable, and I am very interested to see how the lesson process goes.  While other tools, like Foursum Golf, GolfShot GPS and Golf Gamebook offer game/round tracking, they each go at it with different methods and different goals.  The focus on game improvement with lesson integration is a very interesting approach, and one that I look forward to really sinking my teeth into this weekend.

Much appreciated for the detailed response, glad to see you tested part of the app on the course.

 

Screenshots and notes would be great support, our developement team are always looking to improve the usability around the the app.

 

Much appreciated for the favorable impressions with Golf121, its correct we have approached Golf121 as much more then just a scorecard to record your stats. We aim to work with each customer of Golf121 indivdually on a personal note, tracking their playing performance through the scorecard and directing that golfer exactly where a Golf121 lesson can easily improve their scores.

 

With aim to provide golf coaching that is affordable, convienient and simple to the worldwide golfing community.

 

look forward to hearing your feedback and also improving your game with a detailed lesson

 

Thanks

Finally got some swings recorded today.  It was 36° outside and felt like 26° with the wind so the swings weren't pretty.  I'll get them uploaded in the app tonight and then we'll see what happens!

      Are you a mid- to high-handicapper?
      If you are, do you have those rounds where you can’t get a decent score even on one hole?  Yeah, I know… low handicappers have days like that too, but low handicappers need not continue reading.  This is not for you.
      Now, have you gone to the course to play a casual round, maybe with some friends, and didn’t think about the score?  Did you play better than usual?  What were you doing differently?  I bet you were more relaxed; tension in your grip and swing is probably less, and you were considering each shot opportunity relative to a target; the fairway… the green… the hole, and NOT what par is for the hole.
      However, we all want to get better at this game and keeping score is a measure of how well we are doing to reach whatever goal we have; breaking 100, 90, or 80.  Golfers have varying degrees of skill level and for many, making a par on a hole is a significant but maybe infrequent achievement.  For others, pars are a little easier, but then there are those dreaded blowup holes!  So, how can we achieve that relaxed feeling while keeping score?
      The Challenge
      Disclaimer:  I have absolutely no idea if this will improve your game.  There is no guarantee.
      I am proposing a challenge to mid- to high-handicappers to change your mindset so that you play holes with an entirely different perspective.  Change what PAR is for each hole.
      Get a scorecard from a golf course you play all the time. On one of the spaces where you would put your name, write “New Par” Change the par for each hole to a Triple Bogey; i.e., a Par 3 is now a Par 6, a Par 4 is now a Par 7, and a Par 5 is now a Par 8 Go play On the first hole the real Par is 4, but the New Par is 7.  If you score a 6, you are now 1 under par.
      Play at least 3 rounds this way.
       
      Now, change the “New Par” for each hole to Double Bogey (mid-handicap players may want to start here)
      Play at least 3 rounds this way.
       
      Now, change the “New Par” for each hole to Bogey.
      Play at least 3 rounds this way
       
      Compare all of your New Par scorecards.  How did you do??
      Playing to a different Par gives your mind a different perspective on how a hole can be played.  Finally, go play using the real Par for each hole.  Does that round feel different than previous rounds before this exercise?  What are the results?
      If anyone takes up this challenge, I would be curious to hear what your thoughts are about how your mind worked during the rounds and if your play was significantly altered.

      KUCH!
      Looks like Matt Kuchar has finally found a way to get it done again. Been quite a drought for one of golf's most consistent players...
      Anyway, I thought it a fine time to take a look at his armlock putting style and splash a few photos of his Bettinardi.
      Any of you try the armlock style of putting?

      Hey guys,


       
      We have recently taken up golf and are now on a very tongue-in-cheek journey to becoming scratch golfers. Don’t worry, we’re closer to landing on the moon at this rate.


       
      We document each round and would love to hear any feedback, tips or if anyone else around London/Essex wants to play.


       
      Our latest video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6K8KtmpGbA


       
      Check it out, if you can!

      Hey,
       
      I'm from South Cambridgeshire. Play generally at least one round a week, mostly on my own, sometimes with my father and often with my dog in attendance.
       
      I'm always open to playing with other people.
      If anyone is from or in the area, give me a shout and I'm sure we can pick a course to play.
       
      Regards,
      Jon.
