Five reasons you should invest in a golf GPS device
They give quick, simple information
Cutting straight to the chase, at its most basic a GPS device tells you exactly how far you have got to the centre of the green at all times. That single piece of information, that key yardage, is all that many of us need to pull the trigger.
They are easy to use
Most of them are, anyway. If you have been put off buying a GPS by your technological limitations then look again now. With many of these units all you have to do is turn them on and you’re away. They will find the course and hole you are on and update automatically. What could be simpler?
As we all know having watched the Masters, anything that gets the game moving more quickly has to be a good thing.
Find out the carry over a bunker
Using the distance to the front edge of the green, you can ensure that you have enough club to clear the trouble and reach the putting surface.
Extra features also available
An advanced GPS will do much, much more than the above. If you are into your gadgets and like the best then you can do all manner of whizzy things like see a map of the hole you are about to play, measure the distance of your drive, log your scores, track key statistics like greens in regulation, get lay-up distances to the angle of doglegs and much, much more.
It speeds up play
As we all know having watched the Masters, anything that gets the game moving more quickly has to be a good thing. (Presuming you know how to work your GPS) you’ll find a quick glance is all you need to make your decision on club selection.
