As far as the price range and quality, the golf GPS systems could cost anywhere from $100 to $400.

The differences between the cheap to mid-range units and the four hundred dollars systems is in the quality of manufacturing, its software and graphics display.

Most of golf GPS units operate as range finders. That means they can tell you the exact distance from your ball location to the green. This is done by accessing the GPS satellites that orbit the above the earth. That’s done through a computing process called “location triangulation”. If this is the only feature that you want, then a $100 model will be just fine for you. Something like the iGolf Neo Golf GPS would be perfect.

High Handicap golfers and Range Finders

I find these discussions quite amusing - after playing golf for nearly 30 years (of my 35 years living) I believe there is no tip or silver bullet in improving your golf game (beyond an understanding of the fundamentals)

To improve you have to practice, to train and be very disciplined. It is a process or a journey. Golf is becoming like the beauty industry - promising dreams / quick fixes.

To be a better golfer (or person or employee or husband/wife) involves a change of mindset, lots of effort and patience

Practice - the most important element but is approached incorrectly by almost everybody. You need to get into the habit of making practice more difficult than the real game. Hitting balls on the range is a lot easier (consistent lie, no pressure) than playing in the weekend tournament.

Think creatively on how you can Train to be a better golfer - think holistically - flexibility, emotional, physical, mental and TECHNICAL. Remember it is the whole YOU that plays - not just a branded club and SWING. Every element plays a role - just like every cell in our body has a function.

I have learned far more about golf away from the course / range than on it - the other day I played 18 holes on my local golf course - it was great, I was really connecting and had one of the best experiences ever in golf - although I was 2,000 miles away from my course playing on my balcony in Spain. I completely visualized every shot, every pre-shot routine - even conversations I was having with my playing partners.

Once you buy-out of the commercial gimmicks and focus on your creativity and determination you will become not only a better player, but will you will learn to love the game all over again.
By the way I have nothing to sell...
