Developed by PING's engineers for all skill levels, the iPING putter app calculates and tracks your Putting Handicap™ (PHcp) to help improve your consistency, the key to holing more putts. All you need is the PING cradle and an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch (4th Gen), or iPhone 5 - the App is FREE. Cradles are available at authorized PING retailers, including golfsmith.com, golfgalaxy.com, pgatoursuperstore.com, edwinwattsgolf.com, gppgolf.com, tgw.com, theworldofgolf.com and worldwidegolfshops.com. To find a retailer near you, visit ping.com. The iPING putter app is wireless, so you can use it anywhere. Practice and improve at your favorite golf course, at home, or on the road. Every session provides immediate results - leading to more consistency in your stroke.
iPING's motion sensing technology:
- Analyzes your impact angle to improve putting mechanics
- Classifies your stroke rotation to match you with the PING putter model that makes you most consistent
- Measures the tempo of your stroke to improve control
- Compares your Consistency Scores with Tour pros and friends
** This app requires the use of a physical device (the exclusive PING cradle) to attach your iPhone 4, 4S, 5, or iPod touch (4th Gen) to your putter shaft. Cradles are sized for each device.
** Use one of PING’s apps (iPING, PING®, or PING® HD) or the PING.COM website to locate retailers. PING cradles are also available at Apple Retail Stores in the U.S. and Canada and the Apple Online Store.
** This product is designed for putting strokes only. It is not intended for full golf swings or any other purpose.
** Reviewing tour pro data can be performed without the PING cradle.
What's New in Version 1.3.1
- Scottsdale TR putter line is now included
- Minor fixes and improvements
After reading other reviews I downloaded the app first to see if it would work before buying the holder. The App did not work at first, I had to re calibrate it after the first time and it started working like a charm and sometimes when you first start I hit the sound button to wake it up. I contacted ping on the app not working and they said its not a common problem so just mess around with the settings and re calibrate. it does work awesome I love the info! If ping is reading this it would be awesome to incorporate what color dot putter you need off the info, take that to a fitter to double check, and sometimes not every ball that gets hit registers.
Works for me
I have read a few of the reviews that said the latest version of this app doesn't register putts. I risked it anyway, and went to pick up a cradle so I could give this app a shot. When I first set it up, it seemed as though all the negative reviews I read were true…then I turned off the music on my iPhone, and it's working just fine.
Having said all of that, it's nice to have another diagnostic tool at my disposal to help improve my game. Will this improve my game? I think so. It certainly can't hurt my game.
Works only intermittently
I got the iping holder today and downloaded the app. It doesn't work as advertised. When I try to measure 5 puts it only recognizes the first one and says "waiting for the second put" on subsequent ones. I called tech support and they had no suggestions other than to turn off phone (iPhone 4s) and try it again. That didn't work. This evidently wasn't a problem until the recent app update. I can't recommend buying a cradle until they fix the app.
