Typically in major golf tournaments, the story of the week is usually Tiger Woods. This week is no exception, but for a slightly different reason. For the first time in a long time, the slumping Woods isn’t favored to win this week. Whether Woods ends up contending this weekend or not, you can catch all the action on your iPhone, or on the web.

The iPhone App

The App itself is free, but the live video feature requires an upgrade purchase for $1.99. There are, however, several other nice features. You can track the actions with a live Leaderboard and Tee Times.

Hole by Hole description and photos.

You can choose to get breaking news alerts, and you can customize which players you’d like to follow and what types of alrets to receive, such as eagles, birdies, when the rounds begin and end, and more.

The app isn’t bad, and golf fans will enjoy it, but it isn’t as nice or fully featured as the US Open golf app, or the Masters Golf app. The fact that you have to pay an extra $1.99 for the video is a bit of a bummer, but for those people may be travelling or who otherwise can’t be by their TVs or computers, the $2 may suddenly seem like a sweet deal.
