  1. I noticed the new graphics style that matched the images I saw on the R10 reviews and it looks nice. But I was surprised to find two very large ponds are not showing. It doesn't appear to be the course mapping itself that is at fault.
  2. I completely agree, but a virtual/remote option as a supplement to help keep track between relatively infrequent in-person lessons could be a useful tool.
  3. I'm going to chime in again on this... I would say yes, launch monitors are well worth it. As long as you set your budget and expectations according to what you want and will use it for. No real point in buying a GC Quad just to carry to the range every couple of months to get, and keep track of, rough yardages. All you really need is an entry level unit for that. If you have space at home for a set up that you can use frequently then the the extra investment in a Mevo+, Skytrak etc over the basic units is well worth it, if your budget allows of course. The extra capability will encourage you to use it more too.
  4. Has anyone else noticed problems wih the 'updated' maps on the Garmin Golf App? On my home course 2 very large water hazards are just not showing. They still appear on the watch display, but not on the new style shot tracker maps. I suspect that they will be missing from the R10 maps too. I have reported it on the 'course update' website thingy. (I have also posted this on the MGS User Group -Garmin forum(

  6. PersonalIy would think in-person would be the best way to start your journey with a teaching pro. After a couple of lessons then maybe a hybrid approach would be worth trying. Going remote could be a convenient way to help keep you on track more frequently than would otherwise be practical.
  7. I don't really like the term 'colorways' personally. I much prefer something like 'combinations', 'styles' or 'options', but whatever; in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter. But, as a Brit, whatever phrase they use the missing 'u' grates a bit.
  8. Rule 18.3b In summary.... The player must announce or make it clear that a provisional ball is being played. If not then the second ball is the ball in play for Stroke and Distance penalty (3 off the tee).
  9. I have the Decathlon/Inesis Waterproof stand bag. Excellent value, 14 way dividers. Not big on pocket space compared to some, but certainly adequate. I plan to replace it with anther the same when I need to
  10. I have never heard of them before, but they look ok in the pictures. If you have realistic expectations, based on the price you actually pay then it could be worth a try.
  11. Pretty much this ^^ I think. It's not a bad way to get half decent balls at ok prices, especially if you don't know what is actually best for you to use. Also image/ego. 'I play Pro V1s' sounds much better than 'I use budget distance balls'. As for me... I don't buy refurb/lake balls anymore, and I can't justify top prices. So I currently use the Kirkland, and considering the Inesis 900.
  12. My Lob Wedge... Progen 60 deg. Had it in my bag since 2007 (or maybe 2006). I'm considering changing it, but it works and it never had heavy use. I sharpen the grooves every so often too.
  13. I would say yes, they are worth it. If you accept that ranges balls won't give the same numbers as your gamer, they will still give you some numbers, so you can gauge your consitency etc much better than just eyeballing it. Even the 'distance only ones' such as PRGR, SC 200/300, original Mevo etc can help make range practice more meaningful. Even with a cheap one, you can do randomized distance practice by getting a random number generator app on your phone, or use some playing cards or dice I'm lucky, I do have space outdoors for a Skytrak and net at home (but only just), and my game has improved as a result.

  15. I would say the S62 was probably a better purchase, especially if you use it as your normal watch as I do. If you only use it for golf then (depending on price difference) probably still better, but by a lesser margin. In my experience the sensors make no noticeable difference to watch battery life. The sensors have their own replaceable batteries, that they claim can last upto 4 years iirc.
