As the northern half of the country turns to spring, golfers are starting to head towards the greens. It’s that time of year again to wipe down your bags, sort through your clubs, pick up some balls and head out to the range.
Of course, you can always use some swing training, and one of the ways to go is by getting a swing training app for your phone or tablet. You can download it and just like a golf instructor, it will track every swing you make, show you what you did right and what you did wrong, and even give you tips on what to do better. Your device will become your own personal golfing instructor that you can take to every hole on the course.
Stay Away from the Rough
Using this new training method will help you stay out of the rough.
On the course means out in the sun, and you can’t get around it. The glare from the sun may make it nearly impossible to see the screen and when trying to learn how to swing better glare is the last thing you want to worry about.
You could keep running over to the rough just to be in the shade and see your screen. But the whole idea is to be able to stay where you are, which means out in the sunlight, and evaluate the results. If you can’t do that, it almost defeats the purpose of having a swing learning app in the first place.
The Real World
You can try tipping the device, turning it or yourself around to get out of the sunlight. Doing that dance almost seems more of a hassle than it’s worth, regardless how much the golf swing app may have cost you.
The NuShield Way
The better way to see and use your device is to stay in place so you can analyze and contemplate what the swing analyzer is telling you. And a better way to make sure you can see your screen, without running to shade is with a NuShield DayVue anti-reflective film.
This easy to install film presses right over your display screen, breaking up glare and reflecting it away from your eyes. It even works when you’re wearing polarized sunglasses too! Let’s face it, if you are going to pay for an app to use, you should have a screen that you can see.
NuShield has you Covered
NuShield screen protection films are available in all sizes to fit smart phones, cameras, tablets, laptops and GPS devices. If your device is not already listed on the NuShield website, they will custom fit your screen without extra charge. An easy to install NuShield DayVue screen protector will let you get the most out of your golf swing app, without going into the rough and help to improve your screen vision if not improve your game.
