A recent thread popped up about a guy playing very well in heavy wind without using his rangefinder and asking if they're necessary.

Which makes me wonder about rangefinder and GPS usage so I figured what the heck, I'll start a poll. :dntknw:

If you dare, vote for the PRIMARY WAY you play. For the other 2 sections, vote "Never".

I mean.. you couldn't have made a worse configured poll if you tried. Way too many options, and you sorted by handicap instead of the variable you're actually asking about. Most people are going to take one look at that monstrosity and bail.

Because I use both, so answering "range finder only" is not accurate and "GPS only" is not accurate.  The way the poll is setup you have to choose all three (at least it would not save unless i choose all three).  So I would have to choose 2 answers that aren't correct.

Leupold Gx-4i. Best ranger finder around. Got it at a Golfsmith store when the were closing up shop for 50% off retail. I used to be a sky caddy guy but changed to a couple iPhone apps for when I want a GPS as well.

If you "ALWAYS" use both you "NEVER" use RF Only and "NEVER" use GPS Only

You answered your own "question". AFAIK, with multiple questions in a poll, ALL must be answered - hence the "never (only)" option in each question.

A point I made myself just a few posts above. :help: Which of course has nothing to do with the post "contradicting" itself (your "point" after all)

There ya go. When confronted with a question you can't answer, move the goalposts.  :cheesy:

So, as I said, they don't "contradict" each other. Thanks for the confirmation. :hi:

Gotta wonder why. Just love this place. :)


Maybe this will help.  I attempted to vote, and got this:

You must cast your vote in each question of the poll.



without the red coloring, that is.

I don't have a GPS, so I didn't vote for that question, or the third.  The implication, if you vote "never use it" in a section is that you have such a beast and choose not to use it.

I can't help how polls work. And I'd have to disagree with what you believe was implied.

There is an option to allow MULTIPLE answers to a question but none that I could see to leave any (of multiple) questions UNanswered. Hence the "Never" possible response.

If you don't HAVE a GPS you clearly "never use one".

Sorry for the confusion.

I'll start by saying no snark intended...

I realize others may interpret the question differently than I, and in line with how you do.  However, I would guess the number of views combined with lack of votes may suggest I'm on to something.

To offer an answer to the poll...  I own a rangefinder.  I use it virtually all the time, though since I play the same course primarily, there are times I don't bother, having seen several shots quite a few times in the last 10 years.  And, knowing the course yardage markers are done well.  ;)

Almost forgot, I'm a 7 index.

And I did forget...  I do not own a GPS, and generally prefer not to rely on them, unless there's no other option.  Have been burned a few times by significantly incorrect readings.

Have both, use both when needed.  Nice to know where the green front/back is (GPS) and flag (laser), don't use them much on drives of layups unless it is a new course.  Inside 150, the laser is a must.
