Yardage is usually obtained using the traditional sprinkler heads/yardage markers methods. Find the marker closest to my ball then step off the difference. Sometimes in 4 person scramble tournaments a partner will have a handheld device, which is very accurate and quick.
Golf, just like everything else benefits from the development of new technologies. I'm a hunter, and I see the similarities quite frequently. To be efficient you need to be accurate. The more accurate you are, the more effective you can be. Being able to know exactly how far away from your target you are, is not just a luxury of the use of technology, it's a necessity!!!
Thank you for the consideration!
