Spring Is Just About Here, And The Green’s Are Beckoning!

With Spring officially starting on March 21st this year, and the weather is starting to feel like it, most of us that keep an eye on our favorite golf courses want to make sure that as soon as they give the word that they’re open, they will head on over to hit those balls off the tees and start working on improving their golf game.

If you’re looking for some tips on doing just that, but don’t have the benefit of affording the course knowledge of a golf pro or caddy, you can still get one up on your golf buddies by using a little golfers helper to dial in the exact measurements to the green and more importantly the flag with that little hole at the bottom!

I’m talking about using a new range finder, that comes with GPS functionality provided by the company that is at the forefront satellite plotting to get the exact distances between you and that hole. The Approach Z80 Golf Laser Range Finder with GPS, from Garmin  It provides accurate laser distance measurements, within 10” to the flag, up to 350 yards/320 meters. Along with a Full-color 2-D Course View mapping, which is overlaid on the viewfinder for more than 41,000 courses worldwide. The Approach's Image stabilization reduces shakiness and makes it easier to find and range in on the flag. The "Green View" feature automatically shows the distance to the front and back of the green!

The Approach Z80 laser range finder with GPS is the most accurate laser range finder available. It also gives you a new perspective on more than 41,000 courses worldwide. Plus, you also see accurate distances to hazards at the same time. This speeds up play because there’s no need to range them separately. Approach Z80 automatically determines which hole you are currently playing to provide course layout and par information.

With its Image stabilization feature, it makes it easier to find and range in on the flag. The flag finder locks on the flag of any hole. After flag lock, Green View automatically shows the distance to the front and back of the green through the lens. The view through the range finder shows the hole at 6-times magnification for clear, crisp views with map overlays that show the hole layout.

Additionally, having the yardages on the entire hole is extremely valuable. If you’re on the tee you can shoot a few distances to see where they factor in relation to the trouble. Or, you can simply just look through the lens and take a look at the 2D map. One nice feature is that you can input your average driving distance and it will automatically display where your landing area will be.

Overall, this is an excellent product. Garmin outdid themselves in the GPS category with this rangefinder. As it stands right now, I don’t think you’ll find a better combination of features for a golfer who wants to know all of their yardages, as their playing through their game.
So as we mentioned above if you're looking for those reliable recommendations as your playing your game, think about the Garmin Approach Z80  and see just what a difference knowing just where your ball lies compared to where it needs to drop into that little whole with the flag stuck in it? The laser enabled Z80 can help you get there with hopefully fewer strokes than without it.

Does Your Game Stand Up To The Back 9?

In the summer we always look forward to great weather. After all, the sun comes up early and sets later so that our days are longer than at any time of the year. How we spend that time dictates what we talk about when the winter winds begin to blow, and that white, wet snow begins to fall. Some of us like to take advantage of the summer sun and head out to a sandy beach or secluded pond to do some swimming, fishing or just plain soaking up all that sunshine.

But there is that group of men and women that can't wait for the snow to melt away from their favorite golf course so that they can begin to shake the rust off of not only their clubs but also themselves after being forced to watch the reruns of championship golf matches on the golf channel.

If your one of these golf enthusiasts, then you know the only way to improve your game is to practice, practice and more practice. Working on your swing, your long drive, chipping and of course your putting. Nothing does more to help improve your game than becoming familiar with the lay of the land that makes up your course. The different contours the fairways have, the various obstacles that the designer of the course made sure that it's laid out, with enough of a challenge so that it tests your mettle and don’t forget the greens. The lay of the greens can put added strokes to your game! Sand traps and water hazards have nothing compared to the way a green can devastate your putting game with various angles, slopes and cut-away runs that can send your ball, once you even make it onto the green, rolling back away from the pin to drop into a water hazard.

Well, the PGA Championship has just ended and there is still a full summer and fall season of Championship golf to watch and your own weekly games to take part in. If you want to help shave some strokes off of your game, you may want to consider giving yourself a little advantage. Now, we're not saying you need to be a little light with the pencil as your marking your scorecard, that just wouldn’t be on the up and, up right? No, we are talking about giving yourself a little advantage in the way of a technology advantage. We are speaking of a Golf Watch!

The Garmin Approach S60 GPS Golf Watch to be precise! This golf buddy provides precise distances to each location on the course, as well as “Plays-Like Distance”, which adjusts yardages to account for uphill and downhill shots so you can select the best club for the situation. And with Touch Targeting, you can touch any point on the map for precise measurement to that exact spot — including fairway, sand traps, water hazards and more. And when you're about to lay up for the pin, “Green View” gives you each green’s true shape from wherever you are on the course, and it allows you to manually drag-and-drop the pin into the correct location for the day for greater accuracy. “PinPointer” even tells you the direction to the pin when you have a blind shot.

And your getting more than just a “Golfers Helper" here, In fact, this watch can be used for more than just golfing with preloaded activity profiles for running, cycling, swimming and more. And with activity-tracking features, including the move bar, vibration alerts, calories and steps, the Approach S60 will help you stay fit, day in and day out.

So, there you have it. After all, using all the benefits technology has to offer is by no means cheating on your golf game, right? After all, you still need to hit the ball 😊
