Re: Do I need a rangefinder?If you consider what is the best use of your funds regarding golf this is what I would consider.
1) $300 equates to how many round of golf
2) Cost to play including golf balls, gloves, spikes, tees cost per week and month?
3) Will a range finder improve my game and lower my score?
4) How many lesson can I get for $300
5) Would I be happier with lessons or a range finder after the end of the day?
I am sorry to say that I have played with may golfers that I wonder why did you spend money on the range finder when you could of spend it on lessons to improve their game.
If you can not execute the shot what good is a range finder. 5 year ago, we got along without range finders, you could continue to pace off the distance, adjust for wind, up and down hill elevation changes, how you are feeling with your game that day.
I think a range finder is an extravagant purchase in my opinion.
