  1. Name and Location - Brandon Johnson Beavercreek Ohio 
  2. Have you ever used a GPS device or watch? Which one(s)? - Yes I currently use the Garmin Fenix 5 and I used the Original Garmin approach S1. 
  3. Current method of determining yardage - I use the Garmin Fenix 5 for yardage to the front, middle, back and a range finder for the exact pin location. I also use golflogix and game golf if I have not played a course before. 

Thanks!

Interested in testing this.  Used a handheld Skycaddie in the past but it was a bit too "fiddly" for me.  Like to see what the newer version in watch form can do.  Currently using a Bushnell Tour V5 Switch (slope version)

Currently use a Garmin Vivoactive 3. It has a golf app, but not as in depth as the Garmin S series watches.
I get yardage to front, middle and back of green from my watch

  1. Name and Location
    David Reid. Charlotte NC
  2. Have you ever used a GPS device or watch? Which one(s)? I have been using a Garmin S10, but find the distances can be off by 2-5 yards. I would be very curious to see if Sky Caddie are better as their handheld devices are extremely accurate. 
  3. Current method of determining yardage. Combo of S10 and excellent Precision Pro NX9 rangefinder. 
    I really like the idea of having the RF for pin number and GPS to assess how far the pin is from either the front or back of the green.

Yes.  Would love to.  I am a quantitative psychologist who uses lots of technology and data in my work.  I am trying to do this with my golf.  I currently use a Bushnell neo ghost and the Bushnell Wingman for distance and course management.  I use both iPad, iPhone and Windows technology.  I always wear an Apple iWatch when golfing.  I am from Minnesota.  I am 67 years old and in my six year of golfing.  I would love to participate.
