Golfweek launches mobile apps in time for the Masters; Handmark app for iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile

Golfers are teeing off at the first major of the season this morning in Augusta, Georgia, and golf lovers will be able to read about the tournament and other developments in the world of golf on their Golfweek mobile app.

The free mobile app (iTunes link) features real-time information that is automatically undated, a photo gallery, and the ability to save, bookmark and e-mail stories.  The app was developed by Handmark and available for download for iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices.

Interest in the Masters will be heightened this year as Tiger Woods will be returning to golf after a rather highly publicized absence. If, after watching a round or two, you feel the need to hit the links yourself, you can always download the GOLF by Zagat app (also from Handmark), which will give you information and pictures of the best public golf courses. The app lists 1200 courses, and users can access the information directly from the app without the need for WiFi or 3G access.

I call dibs on the new app to exclusively follow Tiger. I like the name "Tiger Tracker" myself. Unfortunately only his spouse wants one!!!
