Tiger Woods Talks About His New Swing App
CNBC.com | March 23, 2011 | 03:35 PM EDT

Tiger Woods, with instructional app company Shotzoom and Apple , released a new app today called Tiger Woods: My Swing .

The app allows someone to record your swing using your iPhone and for Tiger to give you virtual feedback by comparing your swing to one of his swings.

We talked to Tiger about the idea and the execution.

Darren: The app is $9.99. We're trained to download free apps or 99 cent iTunes songs. Even though a dozen balls could cost $55, how do you get golfers past the price barrier?

Tiger: Well, all of the proceeds are going directly to my charity to impact kids, to get them through college and allow them to have a career. I wouldn't have done this deal for Shotzoom if it wasn't for the connection to my foundation.

Darren: How close is this to what you actually do?

Tiger: I work with technology like this on an every day basis.

Darren: How does this work?

Tiger: We go through every club in the bag where you can see a down the line view and caddy view and I try to explain to the user how I analyze my swing and it allows them to draw lines where they want to look at their swing.

Darren: How would you analyze your actual swing right now?
