The app, which costs $9.99, is a first for Woods. It was made with Shotzoom (whose previous apps include GolfShot Golf GPS and Golfplan with Paul Azinger and which produces the GolfShot.com website) and proceeds benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation.
Tiger Woods: My Swing allows golfers to capture video of their swings. The app, with Woods serving as instructor, teachers golfers to apply swing line analysis (drawing lines on the screen just like golf instructors) to the captured video. Golfers can measure their progress over time, and can compare their swings side-by-side with Tiger's swings. Users can also compare their swings with those of friends.
"Everything about this app is based on how I practice," Woods says in the news release. "I've rebuilt my swing a number of times over the years and use this technology to gauge my development and help with my swing transitions. I'm excited that through this app I can take this technology on the road with me and that golfers around the world can now do the same to improve their game."
When Woods says he's used "this technology," he's talking about swing line analysis.
But you might be wondering which swing of Woods' is featured in Tiger Woods: My Swing. He's had several different swings, after all. The app shows Woods' current swing, his Sean Foley swing. So if anyone has thoughts that Woods might not stay committed to the Foley swing, you can let go of those thoughts. Tiger now has an app based on that swing. That's commitment.
