Famous Golf Blogger Releases Masters Toothpaste Scripting

Special edition! This Masters Thursday I’m releasing my highly anticipated Masters Toothpaste Scripting.  It’s my time.  It’s a script like no other. It’s the toothpaste script heard round the world.  YES SIR!

A lot of thought and planning over the past few months has gone into this toothpaste script.  We needed some oral care sure, but also looked for whitening and even kids care. It’s a family blog.  To get that piece of pulled pork out from between the right rear molars I had to throw in some dental floss, mint flavor of course.  A motorized toothbrush is a must and to finish the process, clean and fresh smile whitener.

I’m proud of this Masters toothpaste scripting. I hope you enjoy it, and the Masters Tournament.

In your life have you ever seen anything like that?


My Utah Golf Courses Android App is Now Available

Big announcement! I’ve release my first-ever mobile app! To increase my skills in the day job area of web development I tasked myself with learning a complex programming framework which lends itself to creating “device agnostic” applications.  Part of that learning, and my winter project, was to make a mobile golf app.  So I took my website Utah Golf Guru and created an app based on the same data.  Utah Golf Courses is NOW AVAILABLE for free at the Android Play Store.  I’ve submitted the IOS version to the Apple App Store also, but it is awaiting approval.

About Utah Golf Courses App

Utah Golf Courses works on any Android or IOS device.  The app provides a listing of every golf course in Utah.  The user can search for courses based on keywords.  The user can also filter courses based on the type of course (public, private, resort, military), and geographic location.  So the user could filter the list to show public courses in the southwest region of the state.

Course Details

Each course has a ton of details when the user taps the course to view it, like yardage, slope, rating.  One can even find the types of grass on the fairways and greens.  I also offer playing tips and commentary on many of the courses, including the range ball quality.

The majority of the course photos were shot by me with many by drone.

Why?

There are many reasons behind making the app.  The first two listed above were learning new coding skills and learning how to make an app.  The other reason behind this one is that I’ve often found myself and my buddies looking for courses to book tee times, and not knowing their numbers.  In just two taps of the user’s finger, the user can find the course and dial the course from the app.
