Any bushnell model which is cheap and good for recommendation?

I realize not many are selling their range finder on marketplace... must be a good tool that they don't want to let go

Actually i saw one V2 2nd hand at creative going for 300+...

But DS , this not a big problem lah.. either you cheong with your logest club or lay up with your shortest club.. or you chio me play with you, i use my bino and tell you the distance.

The biggest problem is when you tee off to the next fairway and waula..your ball disappear and you know your ball landed near some buggies..penalty for lost ball..

Bro, if you had used a cheap used ball, it would have stayed where it landed Wink

Yes it's was good using your range finder that made us all walk back to the buggy and change our clubs even when we brought three clubs to the tee box. So good in fact I also looking for one.

OT a bit, anyone know how much is v2 selling in SG?

I used to take out the big dog every hole and half of my tee shots end up in trouble ... now I take my medicine, use hybrid tee off 180m to find fairway, second shot cannot reach nevermind ... hopefully 1 chip 2 putt still can get bogey

Ok. So if I see you take our driver, I will assume you are planning to throw that hole away?

The traditional method would be "Aga-ration"

When i'm allowed to take my time to play, ie. no flight behind pushing. I look for ground markers( usually on water sprinklers) and pace back to the ball. Not sure how big a step to take? next time when u have a chance, at home or watever, find a measuring tape or meter rule. put it on the floor. take a big step/lunge forward and try to rem roughly how big ur 1m step is.

Again. Doing this on the course will only give u a rough gauge. + - a few meters.
