TaylorMade launches myRoundPro app for iOS and Android

Published

on

TaylorMade’s myRoundPro platform that allows users to track strokes-gained statistics is now available in a free app for iOS and Android.

The app, which has GPS functionality to get yardages while on the course, requires users to manually input their shots and putts throughout the round, or after the round, and provides a bevy of statistical feedback.

The platform was created in conjunction with Mark Broadie, the Columbia Business School professor who developed the increasingly popular “strokes gained” stats. Strokes gained works by measuring your performance in a given area — like driving, iron play or putting — against a given benchmark. For example, if you’re a 10-handicap, strokes-gained stats measure your performance against other 10-handicaps. It’s useful to help golfers understand their strengths and weaknesses compared to an average, as well as where they need to improve.

While the original launch of myRoundPro was marketed in partnership with Microsoft Band to track your shots and provide GPS yardages, this app is a stand-alone program. That means the only thing you need to use this program is download the app… and it’s free, which is nice.

    Tried it on the course and it is just a pain in the butt to have to always stop on every shot, break out the phone and log the shot. Also if you forget, then adding it in after the hole is a PITA.

    I (and others) raised data issues with TM from the start of mrp and they never fixed them. I first logged a data issue with them in April 2016 (scorecard data incorrect) and it still isn’t fixed.
    I did the same with gamè golf and it was fixed in days.

    I mentioned this on their Facebook page and they marked my comment as spam!

    This could be the ultimate game analysis tool but they need to get behind the product and support it. The evidence suggests this isn’t the case and we are all wasting our time with it…

    Used it for 9 holes today. Gave up after fighting with the putting.

    If this first move is any evidence, the new T.M. owners are going to kill the company.

    Been using PocketPAR for iOS for a while now. Does all this with more indepth analysis. Plus they are adding Apple Watch soon from what the devs told me. Should be killer.

    Been testing the app for a while now. Overall great, good stats – I like it very much. The only downside is the fiddely input of the puts.

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Which one do you think the new iron looks like?
