How far is the pin?

How far is the pin?

August 19, 2018

It’s a question we ask 18 times a round. I used to trust the yardage marker (the red, white or blue posts), sprinkler head or my caddie, thinking they were all pretty accurate measures. Playing at Sentosa one day I pulled a 7 iron for what I thought was a 150m shot to the green. Then my partner pulled out his Bushnell and asked “do you want a read on that?”. To my dismay the laser distance was 178m! At least two, maybe three clubs difference if I wanted to get on the green. That day I told myself to buy a laser rangefinder or GPS watch. Well, it took me 5 years to pull the trigger. $500 seemed a lot of money for either option until recently when MY GOLF SPY told me about the Best Value Rangefinder for 2018: Precision Golf NX7 Pro. At $349 I pulled the trigger at last and I love it. Lightweight and compact. 

The only downside is I can no longer blame inaccurate distances for my bad shots!

The Best Value Rangefinder of 2018 is now available in Singapore at Urban Fairways.
Order yours HERE for just $349 SGD. It's a wonderful gift for any golfer.
