Its Ryder Cup Week

Update - US Wins, Faldo gets dragged through the mud

I really feel for Nick Faldo and think that captaining any Ryder Cup team is looking like a thankless job. Nick might want to give a call to Billy Martin as Billy might have some advice on how to deal with unreasonable management and idiotic press.

Here's how I see it. Nick didn't miss a single put, didn't shank any shots left, right or in the drink. He didn't get get crushed by a rookie or (lets give credit where credit is due) score more points than the guys who 'made it on merit' as a captain's selection.

To the US team - Good showing! To the European team, congratulations on keeping a stiff upper lip. To the southern boys - Thanks for keeping us entertained! (see video above.)

Ryder Cup - US in the lead near the half way mark & it is getting loud in KY.

I read a post that asked an interesting question. Why do Americans shout "in-the-hole" at the first shot of a 500yard par five? Well, other than the obvious answer [beer], todays Ryder Cup set-up gives us a glimpse into the future. They are playing three different 500y+ par 4s at Valhalla, and JB Holmes just crushed a 380y drive followed up with a 230y SIX iron to within six feet on a 600y par 5. A 500y drive might be possible some day in the future?

The galleries are huge and loud and the US team is giving them lot to cheer about. Lets hope the event stays exciting and doesn't get ugly. A blow-out will lose TV audiences pretty quick without Tiger in the fairways.

iPhone Edition sent to iTunes!

iPhone UPDATE:  
This [past] week we submitted GolfTraxx iPhone edition to iTunes! Wow, a TON of work was accomplished in a short time and we think we have a winner!  If you haven't yet seen that UI, scroll down a little bit.  We'll let you know when we get a word back from Cupertino (via Ireland - where the iTunes Aps support center is located.)

This question comes up and the answer is YES, you can map a driving range!   Mapping your favorite range could be the least expensive and BIGGEST help you can do for your game.  Not a new $500 driver, not a $250 hybrid, and not a new $150 wedge.  For less than an hour of your time you can know the exact distance to your range targets even if you are off to the sides of the range OR when the range moves the stations up and back.  So, when you are using your current equipment and need to know exactly how far the blue flag is - you will!

A very quick how-to:
  1. Make a new folder and name it yourgolfcourse range
  2. Next map the closest green/target as #1 and locate the C, and hopefully a F and B
  3. Move to the next closest location and indicate the C, F, B, etc.
  4. If you range also has bunkers, trees or other targets, build an Extras file for the range using the same Reach & Carry name structure as your regular golf course.
  5. Save it as a KML and send it in to us at GolfTraxx [].
See, it is as easy as a long walk holding 14 clubs.

Now that is the kind of feedback we like to see!

After the long holiday weekend this little gem showed up in my email:

Just wanted to let you know that I used the GolfTraxx software on my blackberry over the weekend for the first time at a course that actually has GPS in the carts and it worked flawlessly! When comparing the distances with GPS on the carts it was exactly the same distances to the green centers. The GPS in the carts were very basic (center of green only) but I found a number of times it was giving me the distance to the wrong hole... But I was able to rely on the GolfTraxx on my BB to give me the correct hole not to mention the reach and carry distances to all the other obstacles on the course.... Great Job!

Well, I hope everyone got a chance to play a round or two as we honored labor this past Monday. I got in a few holes of QA and think the iPhone version is coming along great. The latest new courses post will be up on Thursday or Friday, so check back then.
