Apple Launches iPad with PGA Pro Paul Azinger
Apr 01, 2010 (06:04 PM EDT)
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary PGA Tour professional Paul Azinger partners with the makers of Apple's #1 Golf App, Golfshot: Golf GPS® to create the first universal instructional golf application based on actual golfer's stats.
Golfplan, available April 1st or 2nd on the iPhone and iPod touch, and April 3rd on the new iPad, will automatically identify areas that need improvement in a golfer's game and generate individualized practice plans to address those needs. More information can be found at http://www.golfplanpro.com.
Azinger, the victorious 2008 Ryder Cup captain who has won 17 professional golf titles and one major championship is the driving force behind Golfplan. Each instructional video performed by Azinger includes a repeatable Drill that helps users "Practice with Purpose."
"Golfshot reinvented Golf GPS with the help of the iPhone and I wanted to change the paradigm of golf instruction using the iPad," said Azinger, who won the 1993 PGA Championship. "It was only natural to partner with the Golfshot crew to create a revolutionary app to provide intuitive instruction for our members using their own golf stats."
Golfplan addresses the five major areas of the golf game: driving, greens in regulation, scrambling, recovery and putting.
Golfplans are created by handicap or by using Golfshot statistics. For new users, Golfplan will generate plans based on similar players in their handicap range. For existing Golfshot: Golf GPS® or Golfshot Lite members, Golfplans are generated by the individual's recorded golf statistics on Golfshot.
"Can you think of a better person to help our members with their golf game?" said Michael Hall, president of Shotzoom, creator of Golfshot. "Paul has an unmatched passion for life and cares deeply about the game of golf. It's truly a tremendous honor to have him leading the charge on Golfplan."
Golfplan can be downloaded at the App Store for $7.99. The app is "Universal," thus will work on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. High-Definition videos will be available on the Apple iPad for $4.99 starting April 3rd.
Golfshot: Golf GPS© is a GPS rangefinder and scoring application for the Apple iPhone that uses cutting edge mobile technology allowing its users to view distances to any point on a hole while giving the golfer the advantage of seeing full aerial views of their course or 30,000(+) courses worldwide and in 12 languages. Golfshot: Golf GPS® finished 2009 as one of the Top 10 Grossing apps on iTunes and is available on the iPhone and iPod touch.
