Being able to see where the flag is located on any green can be very beneficial, especially when the group in front is putting out. I'd suggest the average club golfer could do a heap better if they took the club for the yardage to the back of the green and not try to hit their best shot to a certain specific distance.

Using this strategy actually works. Good call Jon.

At your level you have the ability to measure where the flag is and go for it. I'm just trying to hit a shot into the green and not be short.

Depends on more things than that micky boy.

Wind, lie and position of the pin have just as much impact on club and shot selection as the distance.

Sometimes the back of the green is two or 3 clubs further than the front.
Playing for the middle is a much better option for most people.

I enjoy knowing exactly how much I've under-clubbed, how many meters that waay-off-centre hit cost me and how close I was to nearly achieving that 156m water carry. I used to have to guess all these things.

 

How good is golf?

On my GPS you can move the pin to where you think it is on the green.  That gives me a number within a metre or two of what a laser would say anyways.  Sure, on a course where there are blind greens and a lack of different coloured flags to mark pin positions, a laser would be handy, but if I was going to slap out a couple of hundred out on golf I would go for a couple of lessons I think.

I was wondering why this hasn't come up yet, I thought this was a pretty obvious way of doing things.  Anyway, I've been described as a Luddite for not needing any of the distance measuring devices so my opinion isn't valid and I will shush now. 

 

My pseudo home club has the best way, distance markers to the front of the green and then the pin measurements on the score card. There is nothing surer.

Do they give you actually give you a pin sheet for every round there? I've only ever been given them when I play in tournaments.

all of the normal Sunday games I've played there they have. 

Not specifically a pin sheet, it's just another column on the printed card.

 

if Upin sees this he may confirm, but I am sure that it they do it for Sundays, I reckon they'd do it every time

That's cool, I've never seen it printed on the cards before.
