The instructional book Golf My Way is the most successful golf book of all time. Written by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus and published in 1974, it has helped countless readers learn what can be improved in their golf games and follow a system for improvement. Years later, a Golf My Way iPhone app was created that featured instructional videos, but it wasn’t updated and eventually became incompatible with newer devices.
Blue Whale helped give the old app a facelift to make it modern. Users can watch videos using a custom video player, share to Facebook, open it on both an iPhone or iPad, and easily follow Jack on Instagram, Facebook and other social media outlets.

That is how the “Golf My Way” iPhone app, the very first golf instruction app appeared in the App Store. This app revolutionized the world of golf with some of the best features.
