March Madness ended just one week ago. The Masters Golf Tournament just a few days ago. How did you keep up with the events and the excitement surrounding them? We tracked everything with the following apps.
Stay up to date on golf with The Masters Golf Tournament
The iPhone app provides comprehensive digital coverage of the Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia, including live streaming of specific events, video highlights, along with detailed course information for each of the 18 holes. Player information is included as well as pairings and tee times.
Along with after-the-fact articles, you also get live updates. What I found particularly interesting were the per hole fly overs, that give you the impression that you're actually there. Alright, so you can't smell the grass, but if you download The Masters Golf Tournament you won't be missing any of the excitement.
