6 Mobile Apps for the Avid Golfer

January 20, 2012

Golf is a sport that is both highly addictive and highly frustrating. One day you play like a PGA pro and the next day you play like a novice. The old saying, practice makes perfect, applies a good majority of the time, but any avid golfer knows that any given round of golf can have a mind of its own – either making or breaking your current record.
