Announcing Sports Data Systems, Inc., the developer of myGolfstats, has announced their latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. myGolfstats has hit the top ten percent of all apps in the Golf category since the latest major update. Newest features such as improved screens, a new scorecard, game analysis, sand saves, recently upgraded performance and more have contributed greatly to the steadily increasing popularity of the myGolfstats application. Along with tools like the pros use, the app also offers Facebook and Twitter integration.
myGolfstats is a full-fledged golfing tool that lets all golfers track, analyze, learn and have fun with their game the same way that pro golfers do. Little pencils and paper scorecards become obsolete with this app, which even offers a USGA Handicap. Little wonder that the app’s popularity has risen to the top ten percent of the Golf category in iTunes.
The app lets users keep score like a pro. It’s easy to use, accommodates up to four players per game, has a Tips section for making improvement notes, helps users set goals and view summaries. Oh yes, and there’s that handicap.
For a nominal fee, golfers can get their own official USGA handicap and have their score displayed on the site. This offer cannot be found in any other application, as myGolfstats is the only one on the market with the ability to calculate a golfer’s USGA handicap. Another reason for the app’s rising popularity.
Those not wanting to purchase a handicap can still get one, compliments of one of the Sports Data Systems partner sites. It just won’t be USGA.
The application contains a ton of useful and entertaining features such as MyMoneyshots, which allows users to save and view their drive, putt, fairway and scramble stats; ability to set goals and compare after each round, viewing of a group’s scorecard and more.
Improvements made in the last major update include features that have been well received by users and reviewers, alike. So far, myGolfstats has reached a four plus rating out of a possible five, thanks in part, to the latest implemented changes.
New screens is one of the modifications in version 2 of myGolfstats. They now make it easier to access and view any section, whether it’s an individual or group scorecard, Tips, the new category of sand saves in the round summary, club distances or handicaps.
Performance is peak in myGolfstats, making it a welcome companion for amateurs and pros. The app easily travels a course with players and makes reviewing game stats a quick and simple matter.
These are some of the professional features offered in myGolfstats:
