Everyone loves a good game of golf, but lets face it not all of us have the time or money to hit the green.
So what if you could play a game and even win real prizes, all in the comfort of your own home?
That is the very idea behind our new favourite app Puttluck.
The app uses the gyroscopic abilities of the iPhone 4, allowing the game to emulates putting. In other words it is like the Wii, only for your phone. The game features a nine-hole course with a variety of increasingly difficult putts and two difficulty levels.
In addition Puttluck is about to launch their third competition of 2011, in conjunction with The PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club, Johns Creek, Georgia. Taking place from 11th August to 14th August 2011, participants have the chance to win £500 worth of Black Widow golf goodies including everything from grips, cleats, and tees.
The object of the game is for players complete the nine hole course with the lowest score in the quickest time possible. The players’ score and time are recorded and this will determine the overall winner. The score on each hole is added together, giving a grand total after the nine holes have been played. As players complete the nine holes scores will be posted onto the live leader board within the Game Centre, allowing all competitors from across the globe to monitor who is in the lead. Competitors can play the nine holes and post as many scores as they like during the tournament, so get practicing.
The app is available for download here in the iTunes store for 59p.
