Cut strokes off your golf game with Nike Golf 360

I have been playing golf for a long long time and in all those years I have never met another golfer who wasn't trying to find some way to improve and lower his score. Now Nike Golf 360 contains a number of aids that could do just that. The free universal app requires iOS 7.0 or later.

The app offers a number of ways to improve your basic game and lower your scores. Hundreds of golf course score cards are included in the app. You can track scores and other stats for up to four golfers in each round. You will be able to choose which tees you are playing and then get the hole's par and yardage. After playing each hole Nike Golf 360 allows you to enter each golfer's score plus driving information: left, right or in the fairway, if you hit the green in regulation, and how many putts you used. At the end of the round, the app gives you a summary of what your round was like with totals on all these stats compiled in a single screen.

So if you only hit 5 of 18 greens in regulation it points to a failing in ball striking. Likewise if you used 34 putts you could probably use work on your short game. This kind of information offers a much better perspective on just where your game comes up short.

Now that you know what you need to work on Nike Golf 360 provides you with tips and videos on just how to improve all parts of your game: how to hit the ball further, how to get your wedge shots closer to the hole, how to get those lag putts close enough so you don't three-putt and a lot more.

The app has a feature that allows you to record your own golf swing and play it back so you can see just what you look like. Most golfers have no idea what they do with their bodies during their swing. Plus the app provides video of all the Nike contract golfers: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Michelle Wie and others so you can watch these professionals and compare your swing to theirs.

Additionally, the app provides information and training videos that will assist your golf fitness and flexibility. The videos show you what exercises to do, how to do them, and specifically what they are intended to do for your game.

Nike Golf 360 also allows you to share your results with your friends or others. You can use Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to send pictures from your round and all the data you collected. Using this feature you can set up a competition with your friends and develop leaderboards that track which golfer hits the most fairways or uses the fewest number of putts.

Nike Golf 360 provides golfers with numerous game improvement tips and aids and gives users a good starting point to becoming a better golfer. However as I have discovered through the years even with all this information to really improve your game you need to practice, practice, practice.
