ALTERNATE TO LASER

Thanks USGA. We find that there appears to be a change in the use of measuring devices on the golf course during play. A summary of the full story is included in the related article below written by my friends at MyGolfSpy:

Arccos and the USGA

If you have ever used GPS system instead of a Laser unit, this ARCCOS system appears to be the answer we have been looking to discover. I have been using a hard copy distance layout created on my computer awaiting this decision from the USGA. We have all been statically keeping our shot information round by round and trying to keep it in our brains. Some have been transcribing and moving to spread sheets. With this decision there may be an elimination of the yardage book so meticulously maintained by tour caddies and players.

Personally, I consider this a good investment for those seeking help on the course. It will be interesting to see if each of the other system will step up and get approval from the USGA on their systems.

USGA DISTANCE STUDY

Thanks to the USGA, attached below is a link to one of the most comprehensive studies on ‘off-the-tee’ distance studies I have seen in years. You will find the various parts and pieces of this report came from most of the tournament and tour websites. However, to find all this information in a single place is outstanding.

USGA DISTANCE STUDY

After reading the study you will see that technology has increased distance with about the same degree of advancement we have seen on the advancements in training and concentration placed on these facets of our game since the late 1990’s.

You have seen it here before. Now it is confirmed that Hogan Golf’s newest iron is trying to change the game again.

My friends at MySpyGolf recently published review of these new irons by Terry Koehler from Hogan Golf which you can read below. This article would be of great interest to the players who are interested in maintaining the ‘traditional iron’ look to their complete set but getting the performance of that current utility club.

With the opportunity to hit these irons early in the introduction process was very exciting and I have been awaiting the chance to put at least one in my bag. Better players need to take a look at these along with the other great irons in the class to determine if it is best for you.
