How to improve golf game at home? | The quickest way to lower your score

Lower your score by 3 shots per round! Improve your golf game in minutes! Let us show you how to improve golf game at home or in the office.

Technology has been a part of the game of golf for quite some time now. Well always really, since the first clubs were made they were considered high tech in their day! So inherently there has been a lot of forward thinking and innovation in the game.

How to improve golf game at home!

Everything from swing aids to golf ball finders. All of which try to improve the average golfers game, and do.

However one of the biggest problems for golfers is not knowing their way around the course or not being familiar with it….especially when traveling to play.

Course management is one of the most neglected aspects of a golfer’s game.

Most players concentrate on hitting the ball well, but forget that the purpose of the game of golf is to ultimately attain the lowest possible score, not to show off perfect shots on every single stroke.


In other words, depending on the course and the hole you are about to play, it is sometimes safer (and wiser) to play for a bogey than trying to go for a one in a million shot. This ability to always play the right shot at the right time is what makes a successful golfer.

At last, there is a solution to this problem, which could dramatically reduce your score. How to improve golf game at home? …..with the GolfBirdie App.

GolfBirdie gives you a birds eye drone video of every hole, guiding you around the course. Allowing you to improve your positioning, course management and helping you avoid hazards.


GolfBirdie is designed to be used before “to browse and book golf”, during “Using our drone videos as a modern stroke saver” and after your round while “discussing the amazing birdie you had on a particularly hard hole, over a well-deserved pint.”

For top level golfers and pros, the usual practice is to visit a course a few days before a competition and play a practice round.

Speaking from my experience playing at a high level we used to play two even three balls on each hole because we didn’t know where the best position was until we played the hole.

With GolfBirdie, you can use the HD Drone videos in a practice round to eliminate this and allow you to concentrate on your yardages and other info.

Shane Lowry two off the lead heading into round 3 #USOpen

As if the greens this week at Oakmont weren’t fast enough they have been cut and rolled not once but twice in preparation for round three. 

Shane Lowry has a tough task ahead but is in a great position and seems to be handling the greens just fine. 

Sky Sports Golf speculated that perhaps the members at Oakmont had a part to play. They would ideally like to see the winner finish over par. To uphold the courses fierce reputation. Let’s see how it plays out #GolfBirdie 

Come on Lowry!! ☘☘⛳️

The winners selfie ⛳️

Congrats Matthew Fitzpatrick 🏆⛳️🎉

“”I played fantastically today. I was so zoned-in to my own game. It’s been a great week.” 🏆👏

The youngest winner in the history of the #NordeaMaste

Some great golf played this weekend. Fitzpatrick has been playing well for the last few weeks and has came close to winning.

Voom2016 who will make the semi final? 

What an amazing experience at the Pitchathon! The green room was set up amazing with some amazing companies sharing their products. 

There was a certain tension in the room as all the companies waited to pitch. 

“We were called into the pre pitch room and greeted with some great last minute words of advice by virgin media staff.”

It was a surreal experience meeting all of the other creative business. It’s great to see so many good business coming from both the UK and Ireland. GolfBirdie

As always the Virgin Media staff hosted a great event. 

We left everything out there and hopefully it was enough to get us to the next round. Keep an eye on our social media for an update on Tuesday morning.
