Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

Recommended Posts

Joel Book - Charlotte, NC 

I'm applying for my wife, Beverly, who has been using a Garmin S2 Approach GPS golf watch. She is now on her second S2, which continues to have problems staying charged, accessing the satellite and finding the course on which she is playing. This is why I think she would be an excellent candidate to test the LX5 SkyCaddie!

When my wife's S2 Approach is not working, she relies on me to give her yardage. I use an XL 1000 Laser Link Rangefinder

Thanks for considering Beverly as a tester!

About Me

I am 66 and did not start playing golf until 2014. Initially, I considered golf to be the most difficult thing I've ever tried since my mother insisted at age 11 that I learn to play the saxophone. Now retired, I have more time to practice and play and am making steady progress in my quest to consistently shoot below 90.

My GHIN handicap index is 17.6, which means my handicap for my home course at Providence Country Club in Charlotte is 20 from the white tees and 15 from the green (senior) tees.


Driver: Callaway XR 10.5 degree

FW: Callaway XR 3 wood 16 degree

Hybrid: Callaway XR 4 22 degree

Irons: Titleist AP1 5-PW

Wedges: Titleist BV 56 degree and 60 degree Vokey

Putter: Ping Sigma 2
