I am pleased with Decision to stop the compass stuff. The measurement stuff is over the top. If the info is not perfect, so what. It is not perfect for everyone in the field.
Get on with the game. Hit the ball.
There's a reason that hole locations are given in "paces", not yards (or meters) - it prevents arguments about inaccuracies. The next day's hole locations are marked on the green with a dot of paint, the caddies can pace them off during the round if they so desire.
