I am interested in this becuase i can understand how it benifits outside of the home course..
my home course i dont use gps or a range finder because i feel i know my distances etc and i can guess the distance from ball to pin ok and i know the breaks on greens and know the distances i drive off the tee..
but what benifits do you really get from ya home course by using these devices?
If you continually play only one course and there is a lot of water hazards or fwy bunkers then a GPS can give you the distance to those from the tees of the day, also if you are laying up these help.
Also helps if you carve over on opposite fwy and need a distance to green.
If your course has 150m and 100m markers in fwy or has the posts on side of fwy and these measure to middle of green, then using a gps will give you front middle and back of green.
If have the posts and no gps just pace off and do calculation that way.
Also for a given hole are you going to hit a bounce on shot or one you fly all way back. because that will change every day.
pro's in tournaments in Australia, still use the distance markers and not gps's or lasers.
