Mondays With Mike Bradshaw – There’s An App for That

So we’ve all heard the saying above.  And while is is true for just about anything right now, I’m going to let everyone in on a little secret about an app that you probably already have, cost you nothing, and can be a HUGE help in improving your game in 2020.

Take a look at the pictures above and what they represent. Your scoring averages, broken down to the par of each hole.  Then we see putts per round, GIR (greens-in-regulation) percentage and driving accuracy–including whether you miss left or right.  That’s a ton of information at your fingertips that you can use to improve your game.  Struggling on par-3s, its’ probably your iron play…  More than 30 putts per round, it’s probably time for a putting lesson…Missing fairways in mostly one direction–that’s vital info for your instructor.

So how do you get this information–well, you’ve already got the app.  The USGA GHIN app that was updated for 2020 will track your stats if you input hole by hole scores for your rounds.  No more guessing the next day when you try to figure out what hurt you during your round–you’ll have the info right at your fingertips.

While it may not be Shotlink like you see on the PGA Tour, it’s still pretty darn good for every day play.  Track your rounds in the app and the possibilities are endless.

The technology is here to stay–take advantage of it and let it help you fine-tune your game…
