Golf clubs, balls and shoes are not the only tools of the game that are benefitting from significant advances in technology these days. There is also the brave new world of golf apps, and they are giving players many new ways to enjoy the royal and not-so-ancient-anymore game. One of the latest entries in that realm is VPAR, which was first developed in 2006 as a purveyor of live scoring for individual play and also at corporate events and has now expanded to provide a wide range of services. Not surprisingly, live scoring remains a prominent feature of the latest VPAR app, and it allows a golfer to keep track of every shot he hits as it also relays all on-course action to his fellow players in real time. But this product also boasts a scorecard archive that keeps records of all shots played for post-round comparison and analysis.
