    I find the range finder difficult to use and often throws me off rhythm. For most holes you have to shoot several different end points before getting the quantity and quality of information you get from a good gps system at a single glance. Whether you are a walker or rider you can watch your GPS as you move to your ball.

    My pet peeve? A guy standing 40 yards from the pin with a range finder in hand.....

    I am right there with you about seeing someone pull out a range finder from less than 50! Thank you for the feedback!

    I have only used a GPS system on the course and appreciate the ability to see multiple distances to various targets or hazards quickly compared to the need to shoot a range finder at each specific obstacle or target.

    I would like to have a range finder fro the driving range though. The GPS is useless there.

    That is a very valid point about having a range finder on the driving range.

  3. I'm sure this topic has been discussed ad nauseam but I'm going to give it a rip anyway. When playing a round of golf what do you prefer to use a Range Finder or GPS Unit whether it's a watch or handheld device? I play with a Range Finder but I have been entertaining the idea of switching over to a GPS unit. I really like the Garmin Approach S62. I was wondering if anyone as information on the Garmin Approach S62 or information on switching over? Or what y'all prefer to use.

    My original goals are going on the back burner. My oldest daughter has expressed a desire to play golf. So, going to be supportive in her efforts. I let her use my back up set yesterday on the range, but if she sticks with it, then I’ll get her a set of her own

    That's awesome! Getting as many people involved in this great game is what it's all about.

  5. This is a great question! Golf is a challenging sport as is so I am always striving to be better and I feel as if i can always improve. (One of the main reasons I love golf) But for this summer I'm going to put in a lot of range time really getting my swing dialed in something that can be easily repeated. I know it's a lofty goal but i would love to record my first hole in one this summer!

    1. How long have you been playing golf? 
    - I grew up playing golf, but was never technique based, just natural (lack of) talent.  took ~8 years off while traveling the world for business, but have re-caught the bug now that I am settled over the last 2 years.

    2. What do you love about golf? 
    - lifelong sport that allows for an equal mental to physical challenge.  always room to get better than the last shot.

    3. what brings you to my golf spy? Know any other spies? 
    - love the podcast and equipment analysis

    4. Live in Denver, CO; but haven't taken the plunge to have a home course yet.  play a steady rotation of public courses, but see myself joining a private club in next 3 years if my enthusiasm continues or builds.

    5. Best and worst things about golf in the region? 
    - best: lots of beautiful options and a surprisingly long golf season in Colorado.  altitude doesn't hurt for ego off the tee either 🙂 
    - Worst: while season is long, weather is unpredictable.  had a great round going last year in June and got snowed out @ hole # 11...yikes.

    6. What do you do for a living? 
    - I work in sales in the healthcare industry...but really I am prepping for a senior tour birth in ~10 year :).
     

    The weather in Colorado can be super unpredictable. But the scenery and elevation is a major bonus.

    We need to get you out here for some golf @GolfSpy STUDque!

    That list is a pretty good start and you should definitely reach out next time your in town @GolfSpy Barbajo.

    Welcome to the area and also to MGS!

    I'm a fellow Tex-pat (Austin) and it feels like playing underwater, teeing it up back home. The ball also flies much straighter up here.

    Fortunately, the Denver Metro offers walks to suit every taste.

    Tillinghast is my all time favorite and since you get privileges that come from being in the biz, put in a friendly call to Lakewood CC and Denver CC.

    Underrated Old School: Wellshire, Hyland Hills (Gold), Fox Hollow.

    My regular haunts on the Northside: Riverdale Dunes, Walnut Creek, Colorado National.

    I'm just outside Boulder (Coal Creek is my home track) and always happy to tee it up with a fellow Spy.

    See you around the forum... or perhaps out on the links.

    That would be awesome to tee it up some time! I've play Riverdale Dunes, Walnut Creek, and Colorado National and loved all three! Coal Creek is another great track. I'll have to check out the other recommendations.

    Hey Ya'll, Thought Id throw this thread out there for ya. What are ya'll doing to stay in shape during this lock-down??? Or have you done anything at all? Maybe its made you realize you needed to something more! For me it was a big change. Going 4-6 days a week doing Powerlifting programing spending 2-3 hours a session. All Strength lifting to include Bench, Squat, Deadlifting and overhead pressing. Some has help with golf while others hurt my swing. So recently I switched to Golf-Wods. Basically CrossFit designed for golfers. Its nice cause I can workout at home. I'm not in the gym for hours on end and most important I still feel good about myself at the end of the day. Allot of this was also health driven. I Just turned 40 and I weigh 240. not a good number, well a good number for powerlifting cause I'm at my strongest at this weight. 350 bench, 480 squat, and 600 deadlift. all great for the gym, but not so much for golf. I just needed to get healthier and this a good change for me, as well as a great way to workout while dealing with gym shut downs and social distancing. So again! what are you doing to stay in shape?????

     

     

    Sorry for the rant...

    I have been looking into GolfWod is it worth it or should I look into a different sort of training program?

    The Denver area has some of the best golf courses anywhere, I think. Have played a bunch of them - personal favorites are Fossil Trace in Golden - some say it's kind of gimmicky, but it sure is fun. Also love Murphy Creek, Green Valley Ranch, Bear Creek, Meadow Hills, Arrowhead and Red Hawk Ridge. I got very lucky one day and got to play the Sanctuary - it's crazy good. 

    Played a few courses in the mountains, too -- Raven, Grand Lake and a few others. The one I didn't like was Gypsum Creek, but I played crappy that day, so it doesn't really count.  Further west I LOVE Redlands Mesa. 

    I'm probably missing a few, but seriously - other than the day at Gypsum Creek - I've never had a bad day of golf in Colorado. And the altitude makes me feel 20 years younger!

    Thank you for the recommendations! I live really close to Fossil Trace and I've been told I need to check it out so that's at the top of the list. I'll report back when I play a few.

  10. I need to make more of an effort to walk. I enjoy walking way more than riding. I also feel like I play better when I walk because I stay loose. The problem is all my golf buddies don't enjoy walking so I end up riding with them.

  11. Spies,

    I moved to Colorado about two years ago. I haven't been able to get out and play as many courses as I'd like. But I was wondering if there are any Colorado golfers or golfers that have played in Colorado willing to provide some course recommendations that I can check out this summer? I look forward to hearing from y'all.

  12. Howdy Fellow Spies,

    I am new to this forum so I figured I'd let y'all know a little about me.

    I have been playing golf for around 17 years. Started with a YMCA Summer Camp at 10 and I have been hooked ever since! My handicap is 1.5 currently hoping to get to scratch this summer. 

    What I love most about golf is that I can bring anyone together and you can find some of your best friends in a random Sunday fourball. 

    I was drawn to MyGolfSpy because of the honest No BS reviews and product testing. 

    I was born and raised in Montana. Moved to California, to Washington, to Texas, and finally settled in Colorado. My home course is Lake Arbor Golf Club in Arvada.

    The best thing about golf in this region is the diversity of all the courses and being able to travel to different locations to play. The worst thing about golf in this region is being shut down due to the snow in the winter. 

    I am an Assistant Golf Professional at Lake Arbor Golf Club

    I am not the most creative fella so I picked my user name by combining my first and last name and Montana's area code.
