I know you are using the laser rangefinder. But are the rest of the guys using it?

You asked if any of us were using the laser.

It's just a laser. The only thing special about it is that it has a spot if you want to magnetically stick your H4 to it.

If you have a laser already, it's not worth getting.

I'm assuming there's no advantage to using their rangefinder as apposed to any other range finder?

Correct.

@billchao and I are using just the device. We both also have laser rangefinders that we use on the course additionally.

Yep.

To add to what Erik said, I am not sure I would attach the H4 to the rangefinder even if I had it. There are many times I use the H4 when I have no use for the laser, like around the green and putting. The device is just fine sitting on my belt where I can get to it whenever I need it. Attaching it to a laser seems extraneous.

I was thinking the same thing. I think it would be slightly inconvenient to have it on a rangefinder.

While I also wouldn't put it on the rangefinder, and I also wouldn't need a rangefinder on the green, you don't laser your distances for pitch or chip shots?

 No, I don't laser distances on pitch and chip shots, I tend to walk them off.

I used the H4 at Lake Winnepesaukee GC. It worked fine up there. It was off a little bit on some holes, but otherwise fine.

I wrote to support about my lack of 325-, 350-, and 375- (if there is the last one) drives. But, I'm doing okay considering I have only four rounds in there so far, I think.

Yeah, I don't know what the deal is the the achievement medals. I have a drive from this year that finished at 352 yards, but the only medal I have for driving distance is 275 yards (they go up to 400 yards).

Was it in the fairway? I don’t have a 300 yard drive medal yet because mine ended in the rough.

Oh.

That's kinda dumb, then, if so. I might have to move it to the fairway just to get it to count. Because I hit it, so…

I get it, but I also think it's kinda dumb.

Drives in the fairway can go longer. What if you drive it through the corner of a massive dogleg, but you're totally fine? Seems a bit odd.

I don’t know. I guess it’s like those longest drive competitions in outings, they have to be in the fairway to count.

If you click on the actual medal, it tells you the criteria.

Oh, okay.

And okay, I moved my shot about a yard and a half to the left and got the 375-yard one.

I doubt I'll ever see the 400-yard-drive one.

I just checked ShotScope and it recorded it in the rough, so moving fixed it. Pretty sure it was in the fairway in real life too, but close enough to rough/tree line that a minute GPS error would get mixed up (this area of the course just turns into a muddy slop pit in winter so hard to discern fairway and rough anyways). I don’t usually look at the lie information editing rounds. The “rough” at my course is not that difficult, but I do check for shots in bunkers when the GPS puts my ball next to the bunker, or putts off the fringe where sometimes they get attributed to putting stats instead of short game stats when the GPS is off by a yard or two.

When I play, I keep track of fairways, GIR and some other things.   When I edit the H4 round I make sure to verify that the fairways and GIR match my scorecard.   Like previously stated, sometimes it takes moving the data collection point a few feet.

I bought the V3 last because I didn't want that annual subscription with Arccos, and Arccos was always out of the belt clip. My phone didn't fit in my pockets or lack thereof. So the V3 seemed to be a great option. I think this new option in combo with the rangefinder is a great idea for people who don't already have a rangefinder. I still have my old Bushnell. 

My only real gripe about SS is that sometimes it records the forward tees as "rough" and prompts me to "insert a tee shot" during round editing - that is my tee shot, shut up. I guess no one ever plays those tees. I do select those tees.

You can reach out to support and they can add the tees.

I'm not sure I really understand the point of the medals and the "points" (I have 2740 I think). Is it only used in the Leaderboards? I'd like to see the Leaderboards before I consent to signing up for them. Has anyone here used them?

    • Really?  Knowing the name of the caddy would spoil the podcast for you?
    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results. 
    • I didn't know the gaps were going to be that big when I ordered the kit. The installation instructions as far as mounting them were pretty lacking, I'll do some more research and see if I can find how others have mounted it but I'm not sure how much closer I can get them to each other based on how big the brackets are and how far the brackets/motors stick out from the ends of each tube.   Edit: I did just realize I could make the side screens roll up on the insides rather than the outside like they do now which should help close the gaps some
