What do you do when you are even with the 150 mark? (Laser and/or GPS) - Page 2

Poll Results: Would you use your laser or GPS when you are on a familiar course, lie next to the 150 yard marker with a center pin position?

 
  • 36% (14)
    Yes. I always check my GPS or shoot the target on every shot
  • 21% (8)
    Most likely yes. There are times I might not check the yardage but I almost always do
  • 23% (9)
    Most likely no. If I trust the 150 marker I don't need any more information.
  • 13% (5)
    No. My game is not that good and "about 150 yards" is close enough for my purposes
  • 5% (2)
    No. I don't use a laser or GPS.

My golf isn't really at the stage where I shoot for the pin, my goal is to get better GIR stats. I would pull out the range finder if it was heavily guarded green so I knew the distances I needed to carry to avoid traps or hazards.

Probably not.  I would take a quick look at the pin to see if it is front, middle or back and then add or subtract 10. Also, having played the course a few times I should recognize how the hole plays in relation to the yardage (uphill-more clubs, downhill-less club, wind conditions, etc.).  Finally, I select my club, go through my pre-shot routine, and fire away.  I'm an old school golfer and have played this way for more than 50 years.  I make par or bogey more than 90% of the time from this distance, so there is no need to change now.
