Wow. First off, it's off-topic and I should have kept my damn mouth shut apparently.
All I was saying was that GPS provides far more accuracy than on-course yardage markers. The response I get is "no they don't, you can pace it off and get the same info". Well yeah, I guess you could, if your pacing is accurate enough. I guess I could just start at the green and pace it off if I was on a course that didn't have yardage books. Talk about straw man arguments.
I was simply contradicting the statement that they're no different than the yardages on sprinkler heads.
Sorry I said anything.
