This week on the PGA Tour it’s the Shell Houston Open, the final tune-up before the first major of the year next week, The Masters. It’s a great field — including Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood — all trying to get their games in tune on a golf course made to play as similar to Augusta as possible.

TV Coverage is Thursday-Friday, Golf Channel, 3-6pm ET, Saturday-Sunday, Golf Channel 1-3pm ET and Saturday-Sunday, NBC, 3-6pm ET.

Another twenty-something winning starts this week’s What It Means:

Martin Laird Wins at Bay Hill: Laird fits the trend: another guy in his 20s from Europe winning on the PGA Tour. And this time he used a nifty European links-style bump and run shot to help put his round back on track. After struggling in the first portion of the round that included a water ball on 11, Laird used the useful shot out of the trees on 15 to get himself into position to make a birdie, followed by another on 16 and a sensational two-putt par to clinch victory on 18. It was Laird’s second PGA Tour victory, the first coming in 2009 in Las Vegas.

Yes, this will probably bring chuckles from many but it’s true. Tiger Woods and GolfZoom have partnered to create “Tiger Woods: My Swing: a mobile app that can take video of your golf swing and get instant analysis from Tiger. You can also view Tiger’s swing and compare certain positions to yours.

Tiger says he uses the technology himself all the time, and that it was only natural to try and get it out to the consumers.

“It’s not an instructional piece,” Woods said during an interview at the Bay Hill Club, where he begins play Thursday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. “I give him the lines and the positions I look for. He or she does not have to use that. It’s merely a guide. I’m just saying, this is what I use, this is why I use this position, for that reason. It is a guide to help you improve your game.”

Proceeds go to the Tiger Woods foundation.

The cost is $9.99 and is currently available for the iPhone and iPod Touch only but Tiger says they are working on versions for the iPad and Android devices.

It’s already in the top 5 in US sports app sales for today, and I have a feeling this is will be a really popular app. I’m anxious to use it myself in the coming days and weeks.
