    We've dabbled with Golf GPS systems here on Pocket-lint before, namely the Garmin Approach G5 and Approach S1 watch. However, when you don't quite need all the features those kind of devices offer, and you'd like to know how far away from the flag you...

    Garmin Approach G5 golf GPS hands-on

    By 8 August 2011

    Anybody who plays golf will know that, while there is no better sound on this planet than the "schnick" of a clean, straight stroke, more often than not, the calm ambience of a course is broken by profanities and curses. That's why the golf-improvement...

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 review

    By 3 July 2010

    First, let's start with the bad news. On the Xbox 360 and PS3, the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series appears to have hit an impasse. In most respects, it's pretty difficult to tell this year's version from last year's effort, and while there are some major...
