"I have played golf my whole life, and love the fact that it's a test of your skills against the course and the elements. Diligent practice is something any golfer must do to play well. However, adapting to changing conditions on the course requires anticipation of what's to come. That's why I use ScoutLook as my weather source. It provides important condition details right down to the very course I'm about to play so I am ready from the 1st tee. Before you take your first swing or next lesson, know what you're up against by checking ScoutLook."
