How Can Rangefinders Help You Improve Your Golf Game?

Auto Draft

Golf rangefinders are devices that allow you to measure a distance. They are mounted on golf carts and serve as an aid for golfers when they are practicing their game. Rangefinders may also be used to measure the length of the fairway, to locate bunkers or trees, and even mark out the farmyard. Rangefinders are available in different models and can be purchased either with GPS or without GPS. If you want to know whether you have a GPS model, here is how to check.

 

Most golf rangefinders are controlled by a stick-like device known as a grip. This grip is what allows the golfer to maintain his or her grip on the handle of the device. In other words, it is the device that coordinates the actions of your hands with the movements on the golf course. If the grip moves out of sync, the golf rangefinder will be difficult to use and it may be more difficult to find the course since the position of your hands is not where your eyes should be looking. So, if you do not have a GPS model, make sure that your hands are steady on the handle.

 

The problem that most golfers face when they do not have a GPS model for their golf rangefinder is that it is difficult to keep accurate track of the ball. Many golfers use the device in order to keep an exact distance measurement, and they rely on that measurement to be accurate. But if you are using the GPS model and it is not accurate, you could end up miscalculating the distance. And miscalculating the distance means you will not be close enough to the golf ball in order to hit it. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a reliable rangefinder to get the most accurate readings and to get close to the ball. If you do not have a GPS model for your golf rangefinder, here are some ways in which you can keep accurate distance measurements.

 

The first way in which you can keep accurate distance is by keeping your hands steady on the handle of the golf rangefinder. Some golfers grip the device in their palm and others in their hand, but make sure that you keep both your hands steady on the handle. This will help you get the most accurate reading, particularly in the case of a wind direction change. The movement of the golf ball and the air currents will cause the ball to move erratically. A golf rangefinder with a GPS can be quite a challenge to use if you are trying to keep pace with the motion of the ball and the wind.

 

The second way in which you can keep accurate distance with your golf rangefinder is to remember to turn the rangefinder as necessary in order to keep track of the wind. When you are playing, wind can affect the direction and speed in which the ball travels, and this means that if you are using a golf rangefinder with a GPS, you are less likely to forget to turn the device on and off as required. Most devices allow you to turn the feature on or off as you need to. It is therefore advisable to turn the rangefinder on for every shot that you use in order to keep consistent with the wind speed.

 

A final way in which you can keep track of the golf ball is to keep an eye on the club head as it pings back and forth across the rangefinder’s viewing area. If you watch the golf ball carefully you will notice that the head of the club moves back and forth across the rangefinder’s viewing area. Although you may think nothing of this movement when you are looking at your golf rangefinder, the movement can cause some inaccurate readings, especially if you are looking at the top of the golf ball. The same applies to when you are looking down the rangefinder; the head of the club tends to travel lower and far into the ground than when it is aimed at the ground.
