I have a Garmin Approach S20 GPS, which I use 50% of the time

For more accurate line of sight distance measurements I also use a Nikon Aculon laser range finder.

I have never owned a GPS watch for golf, however I have used a nike GPS watch for running in the past

Current method of determining yardage is the gps on the carts(depending on the course) or i usually play with a friend that has a range finder

There’s some irony when contemplating the market for watches in 2020.

Specifically, it’s a situation where the original purpose of the item is no longer a defining selling point.

Remember when the primary, if not the only, purpose of a watch was to keep time? Me neither.

It’s a reasonable assumption that time is anything but of the essence; golfers are far more interested in all of the golf-related stuff that this piece of wearable technology does.

The SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is built around the architecture of the SX500which was named the “Best Handheld GPS” in MyGolfSpy’s annual Most Wanted testing.

It offers an abundance of bundled golf technology, and did I mention it also tells time. Ain’t that something?

I am on my second Bushnell. The one I am using now is an Neo Ion. I am a golf gadget junkie. Would love to a tester. I average 3 rounds of golf a week. Handicap at 15.2.

I am using Taylor Made RSI2 irons with kbs tour 105 shafts. I have been curious about lighter shafts for quite some time now. My iron miss is to the left. Sometimes a lot to the left. My diver is Titleist 917, 10.5 loft, stiff shaft. I like it fine. 3 wood, 3 7 5 hybrid are titleist.
