In addition to questions about courses and travel, a lot of people have been asking me which golf apps I like.
One of my favorites is a lesser-known one called iSandbagger ($3).
As its name suggests, it provides insight into the legitimacy of people's handicaps.
Find yourself getting "pencil whipped" in a match that should be a lot closer?
With iSandbagger, you can see each player's statistical probability of shooting various scores on a specific golf course.
And if someone ultimately cards a score equal to or below their course handicap, it'll tell you the odds of this happening.
For example, there's only a 1 in 570 chance that someone will beat their handicap by five strokes.
(What we really need, of course, is an app for confronting someone about it.)
Another great app is the V1 swing analysis tool, which, for $5, all but replaces those thousand-dollar video analysis stations you see teaching pros using.
You simply shoot a video of your swing with your phone or tablet, then the software lets you draw lines on top of it marking your posture, swing plane, etc.
You can then watch your swing in slow motion and compare it to the "ideal." Very helpful if you're visual learner like me.
What do you think are the best golf apps?
