My golf game is not the best… but it’s getting better especially thanks to technology. For example, I use apps such as Iswing to monitor my swing and correct issues that pop up. But can you improve your golf game using a free app?
The answer is yes. Nike now offers a free iOS app called Nike Golf 360 which helps you to monitor and improve your game. You can enter scores from a wide variety of sources, keep tabs on stats such as putts per round and driving accuracy, and do much more.
One section of the app lets you video your swing, or import video, and slow it down to any speed to watch your swing carefully. It successfully helped me figure out why I was hooking the ball and I straightened out my swing. The video feature is not as comprehensive and analytical as apps such as Iswing, but it is the best free option I’ve seen, and it allows you to add nice metadata to archive each swing, so you can remember what you learned from it.
The final, and perhaps the best feature of the app is the exercise section. When I’m trying to improve my game and I’m at the gym, I never seem to know what exercises to do to improve different aspects of my game. The Nike Golf 360 app makes it so easy to find exercises. The exercises are broken down by goal such as balance, power, and flexibility and there are several exercises for each category. Each exercise also features video instruction how to do it, and written instructions. I will definitely be using this more in the future to correctly work out to improve my game.
Overall, Nike created a great free app which would be an asset for every golfer from the hometown hacker to a PGA pro, so give it a try.
