Thursday's App of the Week: Swing by Swing golf app

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The beauty of a nice fall is, the golf season is extended. And a lot of people are still heading to area courses.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The beauty of a nice fall is, the golf season is extended. And a lot of people are still heading to area courses.

Well as usual, I have absolutely no idea where that ball went. But luckily, when I do find it, I'll know where the pin is, because, there's an app for that.

There's been GPS on golf carts for years, but now that GPS ability is right on your smartphone with the Swing by Swing golf application.

It lets you zoom in and out of the overhead view of whichever course you're playing. When you mark where your ball is, it'll let you know where the flag is and how far you have to fly it.

And of course, you can keep score with the application. Track your putts, previous rounds, find out if you're improving, or you're like me and just continue to hack away.

Alright! Now who needs a pen and a paper when I can put that triple bogey right into my smartphone. Now this application is available on the Android market, but there are similar free applications available for Apple products too.

All the courses in Fargo and Moorhead are linked with the Swing by Swing application.
