You can ask Siri golf questions on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch


SHARE THIS STORY



Siri, Apple's personal assistant of sorts, has been getting better with age, and she's now able to answer golf questions for you.

We're not talking about swing tips, yardages or anything relating to your game specifically. Rather, Siri now can answer questions about professional golf tournaments, results and players that can keep you in the know while you're out and about on the weekend or simply just curious.



The information has been added to what's dubbed the "Siri Knowledge Base," whereas in the past Siri has directed a lot of answers to golf questions to a reading of a Wikipedia listing or a link to a Wikipedia page. Now, you can get live leaderboard updates, check up players' scores or get some historical information.

For example, some golf questions you could now ask Siri:

• "Hey Siri, who is ahead in the Pebble Beach tournament?"
• "Hey Siri, what is Rickie Fowler's score so far in the Sony Open?"
• "Hey Siri, show me the Players Championship leaderboard."
• "Hey Siri, who won the British Open Golf tournament?"

You can ask a number of these types of golf questions to Amazon's Alexa as well, with commands from both the PGA Tour and Golf Channel.
