I read sprinkler heads, ask my buddies who have range finders, and guess.

Just having some idea of the distances and hazards, has helped my game significantly over the past several years. Give me better tech, and I could be awesome or less awful. It seems to work well for my golf buds.

Currently using a Garmin Neo.

It is not too advanced and it is very quirky. 

Anything that can be used to improve performance is what I'm looking for.

I currently do not use any type of gps or distance measuring device. I have playing partners who use the watches, and occasionally they'll check a distance for me. Otherwise, I just wing it which is hit and miss. Mostly miss but occasionally a hit.

Without a doubt, technology is here to stay, at least with the weekend warrior golf crowd. I had went about a decade without playing and just returned to the game this year. Previously when I was playing regularly, none of the people I played with had any kind of of distance measuring device, not even a rangefinder. However, more than half of them now have the gps watches. It is currently a growing trend and appears it will be so for some time to come.

I currently get my distances from markers in the ground.

I feel that there is some technology in golf that helps. For example range finders and gps. But there is some technology that manufacturers tell consumers just to get them to buy their products and are just gimmicks.

Definitely believe technology has its place in golf not only for amateurs but pros as well. 

Use the step off method from sprinkler heads or stakes.

(10) TESTERS WANTED: SKYCADDIE SX400 GPS

There are far more people out there still using flip-phones than one might think. Call them traditionalists or Luddites, there's always a contingent happy to eschew technological advancements in favor of a more orthodox approach.

In golf parlance, this group tends to be feel players and might be overheard describing a shot as " a three-fingered 7-iron."

That aside, the merits of distance-measuring devices can't be ignored and if you've been looking for a reason to experience it first-hand, this might be just the opportunity.

Yardage markers and sprinkler head marks

I think tech can speed up play but RANGEFINDERS slow the game down !

Never used GPS. Estimate by sight, yardage stakes (100, 150, 200), Zen, and best guess.

Technology is fine and useful: more to some than others. I tend to pay more attention to equipment technologies than electronics, but I do always look at how equipment testers and bloggers use the latest tech for their data collection and analysis.

either from course markers or friends

I believe it can help some players, but hinder most. To much info can make most players over think.

I currently use a Caddytek Caddyview v2 rangefinder with slope and will use 18 birdies or BlueGolf for pre-round course measuring to plan out tournament rounds

I love technology in golf and I am an avid user, but have quickly learned that there is a line where technology cannot help you any more than it has and from there you must find your own way,

Loyd Potter, Decatur AL

I am just starting back.  Haven't played in over 3 years and I have played off and on for about 30 years. I'm a hacker and looking to get better.  Just bought a set of G400 irons and Driver.  Never broke 100 but now I'm retiring soon and going to be playing at least 3 times a week. Never used anything for getting yardage other than course markers.

I think technology would greatly improve my game, so I am all for it.

I don’t use anything at all. I lick my finger and hold it up in the air, and then cover one eye and throw a tee up towards the hole...

works every time ... money...
