Some of golfers' favorite words: "It's in the hole!" "Split the fairway!" "You're dancing!" "It's dry." (OK, that last one isn't the best news, but if you're in tho

TESTERS ANNOUNCED! We've got TEN forum members who are going to see if the SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is going to be the best tool for them to hear "Pin high" just a little more often! @AGut

Thanks @GolfSpy MPR! Looking forward to giving this puppy a review from a rangefinder stan!  Also, I have a Pebble Beach Trip coming in August, so pray that COVID doesn't cancel that trip so i ca

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.

  3. Nikon rangefinder

I would love the opportunity to compare the rangefinder to a GPS watch with front/middle/back.  My course tends to have firm and fast greens.  I often end up shooting a yardage to the pin, 150 for example, and then trying to hit it 150, only to have the ball bounce 15 yards to the back or over a green.  When I realize this, I tend to take yardage off the rangefinder, but then I tend to miss short of greens and not get the bounce I was planning on.  A GPS watch might be the solution to land the ball on the front, but on the green, to get the regular bounces I would expect.

  2. I use my iPhone and Apple watch as GPS devices regularly. Apps like The Grint and Hole 19.  
  3. Depending on the situation, I'll use my phone, watch, or rangefinder.

i had the original Skycaddie watch. I have using the Garmin Approach S60 for a while. I mostly use it for distance except for Par 3’s where I use a Bushnell range finder.
