Puttluck iPhone Golf App Review

Golf Putting App
Puttluck is a highly addictive motion controlled putting game. You use your iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G as the controller, moving the iPhone to putt the ball (like the Wii). The motion of your arm is picked up by the iPhone’s gyroscope and translated into the game as a putting stroke.

In theory this sounds easy but since I downloaded the .99 cent app this putting game is down right hard to master. Definitely start out on the beginner easy competition games and work your way up to the normal setting. You can read the greens with the grid but it requires a lot of practice to get distances down much like real putting.

I've got a Wii so I was hoping I'd be able to pick this one up quick but it definitely takes a lot of practice. So if you've into golf simulation apps then Puttluck is for you. Download it now during Open Championship week and you can win £500 ($800) worth of Black Widow golf gear during Puttluck in-game competition. The competition winner will be the person with the best score on the leader board, based on a 9-hole course, between 14-17 July. Right now there are two days left in the Puttluck competition. The current leader completed the course in 16 shots and is 'on course' for £500 in prizes. Can you beat that? Be sure to stay tuned to all the Puttluck action, follow Puttluck on Twitter.
