Nike releases NG360 app for iOS devices

Published

on

Nike Golf has released of the latest version of its NG360 golf app for iOS devices.

Nike’s foray into this evolving world combines both fun and instructional capabilities in a neat package. Features include:

  • Score and stat tracking for up to four players (putts per round, driving accuracy and GIR), including the ability to set up virtual leaderboards to compete with friends.
  • The ability to record your own swing and analyze with built-in functionality, as well as compare your swing to Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s swings.
  • Photo sharing with custom score and statistic overlays.
  • Training videos, drills and tips of the trade, including putting tips from Dave Stockton.

The apps functionality and usability has also been enhanced, as well as including fixes for previously reported software bugs. It remains to be seen if NG360 can compete with the “big boys” of the mobile golf instruction world, but it’s price (free) should help it get downloads.

The past few years have seen a revolution in the proliferation of and capabilities of portable devices with high-resolution screens and powerful cameras, enabling tens of millions globally to record and share intimate details of their daily lives. It’s no accident that the golfing world has eagerly embraced this technology, revolutionizing golf instruction as well as providing golfers the ability to share details on one’s swing and on-course performance with friends, family and golf instructors.

This app is now available for download in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Sweden, Scotland, and Germany via the Apple iTunes online store, with an Android version coming this summer.

Neil Crutchfield picked up the sport of golf at the tender age of 34 in 2012 and has been completely infatuated ever since, much to the chagrin of his wife and bank account. Currently, he is a 11 and working hard to get down to being a single-digit handicapper, with the ultimate goal of being scratch.

    So the purpose of being able to compare our swings to Tiger is so we can make sure we don’t do it the same and have back injuries?

      I’ll take the back injuries along with the 14 Majors, the 79 wins, and the hundreds of millions of dollars too, thanks!

5 Wood vs. Hybrid vs. Driving/Utility Iron – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing where they stand on the 5-wood vs Hybrid vs UI dilemma. WRXer ‘Michboomin’ kicks off the thread, saying

“I play an Apex 3i w/ MMT 105TX, and it’s fantastic, can hit every shot; I recommend this set up to anyone. However….I like to tinker, and something keeps telling me to try a 5 wood. I tested out a Titleist 2 hybrid last season and wasn’t a fan, hybrids just don’t feel solid to me. 

Just curious what you guys like to play and why.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lefthack: “I love my 5 wood. I am still playing with other clubs; I am currently using the GAPR Lo 3 and thinking of getting the Lazrus 2i. I have also thought about a 7 wood just because. I took my 3 wood and GAPR Mid 4 out, so I have room for something at the top.”
  • PEI_Golfer: “I prefer a hybrid and have settled in nicely with my 19* TS3 (set to C1) with AV Raw Blue 75X. Very stable and quite straight now vs. the out going stock EFW T1100 S and X. Tried to replace it with a Sim 5wd this year, and it just didn’t work out. I dabble with DI’s, but the hybrid is as long and more versatile.”
  • Ger21: “I swapped a 5w for a 2 hybrid, as the 5 wood would balloon too often. Both, though, are much longer than a 3iron, so I also carry a 3 hybrid that replaced a 3 iron. Prefer the 3 iron from the tee, but the iron is much more usable everywhere else.”
  • SteelieD: “I finally ditched the hybrid and put a 5 wood back in the bag. Hybrids and I just never got along.”
