  • Vincent Sturbaum - Henderson, NV - I play year round
  •  Sprinkler heads, course yardage markers, cart GPS if available or ask people with hand held device
  • people get to dependent on technology, lose the feel needed to really make good shots. I feel technology should provide confirmation on what you feel and what your brain is telling you. That being said, it is nice to know distances to hazards, lay up areas, carry over water, etc. All the things tour pro caddies provide, without slowing play down.

I currently don't use anything to get my yardages I just guess at what club feels right. I'm not sure if military stationed overseas can apply for these though.

I had used the sky caddie 2.5 but lost it in November.  I currently use fairway markers.  

 I think this technology would save me time during my round. It would eliminate walking to markers and then walking off the distance to my ball. Thank you for the opportunity to use an upgraded model. 

I am located in Central Pennsylvania.

Yardage book (if available), course markers and landmarks, pacing, course familiarity

I'm a traditionalist, but have tried a couple of now obsolete devices in the past.  I hate all golf tech, including any "game improvement" equipment.  I own over 20 sets of vintage forgings, a few classic persimmon woods, as well as some old putters and wedges.  The game of golf today is not golf - it's devolving into some kind of long distance competition requiring less and less skill and increasing reliance on tech aids of all sorts.  I 'm an 80+ yr old retired computer systems engineer and amateur club maker who lives on a golf course.   I've already given in to newer balls and metalwoods, but don't know my current distances.  Perhaps this device can change my mind.

I believe any device that helps make the game more enjoyable and fun is a good thing

course markers for distance

I completely agree on the use of technology at least for the amateur to get a better idea how long each club goes.

Dan from South Jersey.

I typically use the on-course fairway markers and pace off from there.

I think fully embracing technology is how golf will attract younger audiences and participants and will grow in the future.

Been seriously considering this for both myself as well as the high school golf team I coach here in the Chicago suburbs. I'd love to help you guys, thanks.

I use course markers, IE: 100. 150, sprinkler heads

Tech (except rangefinders !) should help speed the game up !

I currently use a Rangefinder with slope for practice rounds

Any technology that provides good information is useful to me.

    • Technology has it's place.  I like approximating my yardage and going with what feels right, but knowing the actual number on an unfamiliar course or having something to confirm the mark you find when you don't trust what it says and what it's feeling like would definitely give more confidence and allow more focus in those situations.

  • Name and Location - Joshua / Ventura, CA
  • How do you currently get your yardages?  Telephone-based App.  
  • How do you feel about technology's relationship with golf?  Technology has improved every aspect of game.  Clubs have made me longer and more accurate than when I was in my 20's. The GPS app takes the guess-work out of yardages.  The only issue with phone-based apps is their occasional inaccuracy.  I can be standing on the 150 plate in the middle of the fairway and my phone will say I'm 138 to the center.  For a single-digit handicap that variance is a round killer.  To be able to test the SkyCaddie on my home course and against my current app would be a true test of the device's performance.

 

I hope to be chosen.

Looks like a great distance measuring device, looking forward to reading reviews of those selected

This is Uday from Michigan. Interested as I don’t currently use any GPS or range finder or distance device. I have a handicap of 15 and would like to get better. I currently only use the maps offered by the golf course where I play and I am technology savvy.
