    Works for me. Let's just hope they still let us outside in August this year.

    My course has what look like fence posts at the 150 mark. I thought they were stupid and didn't understand. After all, we have GPS carts, GPS scorecard on the phone and the old school markets on the sprinkler heads. I recently found out they have color-coded tops to indicate the days pin placement on the green. It helps greatly, is this common practice elsewhere? I don't remember those from 30yrs ago.

    i've seen such a thing before but not at my course. the cart gps updates with each pin placement.

    I can't remember, do you have different colored flags for pin placements? I like the 150 posts because it gives you an idea of how far to hit to have 150, 100, etc in to the center of the green (especially if you don't have GPS/are walking/etc). In other words, they are more useful for the shot before you go for the green.

    I'll have to pay attention to the flags today, I don't think they differ at all. The cart GPS just shows front/middle/back distances, so these are helping me.

    Root, I've been trying to play smarter and using the post to guide shot placement inside of 150 has been helpful.

    Usually have red, white, blue flags for front, middle, and back pin placements.

    White post for 150 and red for 100 are going out of vogue, but are helpful for knowing your distance to center of green or your layup distance if youíre walking and not using a GPS or a range finder.

    I walk/carry and sometimes forget my GPS watch, so the course markings (sprinkler heads, discs, posts, etc) are helpful.

(I am currently a 14 index, but the guys in the tournament last weekend were ragging on me endlessly about being the best 14 they'd seen--maybe they were just trying to get in my head though.)

    I ended up trying like 8-10 different clubs and he immediately steered me away from the more game improvement end of the spectrum. I ended up hitting Mizuno JPX 921 Tours the best--both straightest and longest. They had some in stock so that also helped. I then started researching at work and realized they are basically top of the line player blades?! I was sort of pissed because I never would have bought them if I had done the research first. But then I got out last night and played 14 before it got dark and hit the BEST iron shots of my life with zero mishits and a couple shots that felt better than any I've ever hit, including hitting a couple greens from 180ish that are always a struggle for me. In fact I would have tied my best front 9 ever if I hadn't sliced a drive into the river (recovered for a 6 on the hardest hole on the course). This game is fucking mental.

    Good luck w the Mizunos!!!

    My old place had red, white, and blue flags for front, middle, and back. It's pretty helpful for the MANY elevated greens where depth perception goes awry.

    When I learned the game every course had posts or more likely bushes at 150 and 100 yards on the sides of the fairway.

    I can guess +/- 3 yds if I have a 150 marker. I use a free app when I'm hitting from somewhere one fairway over. Under 100 yds I DO NOT want to know the exact number from your rangefinder. I trained with one of these when you couldn't post a score if you used it.

    I was playing a new course couple months back, 2nd round of the year for me. First hole my drive ended up by the the blue stakes on the edge of the fairway. 200 yards out, right?

    Fucking wrong... I launched over the green into a fairway behind it. MFers color coded the stakes to match pin placement on the day, not distance out. i was actually 150 out. goddamnit. fucking bullshit.

    1 bird, 5 par, 5 bogey - end up with a 99. What an up and down round. Was plus 11 after the first three, almost just went home after those.
