For many folks, Christmas is “the most wonderful time of the year.” But for golf fanatics, it’s Masters week. And with Tiger Woods rising, Rory McIlroy roaring and a host of other exciting contenders, this Masters week could be one for the ages.
On that note, we are excited about the return of a seasonal favorite this weekend: the official Masters app for the iPad, iPhone and, now, Android. If you have a smartphone, this is nothing less than a must-have app. Best of all, it’s free.
Like it’s predecessors, the 2012 Masters app is chock full of features, and it’s only going to get better as the tournament begins. For now, you can view video recaps of last year’s Masters, read news updates about this year’s participants, and enjoy hole-by-hole flyovers that showcase the epic beauty of Augusta National. It also includes photos and background information on Augusta National landmarks, such as Butler Cabin and Hogan Bridge.
Once the tournament begins, you’ll be able to track the action on the included leaderboard, as well as watch live footage of select holes. Simply put, for the Masters fan, there’s no better way to geek out on the course, the tournament and the action.
We’ll be bringing you putter news from the Masters all week, so stay tuned at PutterZone.com.
