Two Distance Measuring Devices Allowed in Tournament Play?


Recommended Posts

Hello friends...I recently received a GPS watch as a gift. I already have a rangefinder. I'd like to keep using the rangefinder to get exact distance to pin and other objects, but I like that the watch tells me front and back to the green. Question is, in tournament play, can you use two distance measuring devices? I haven't been able to find a clear answer. Thanks!

Yes. If DMDs are allowed in the competition, you can have an infinite amount. I use the GPS on my push cart and the laser for distances. And when playing a course I don’t know, I use my phone for a top down look at the holes. 
 

Totally legal. 

Awesome! Thank you!

As a general rule, if something is not prohibited, its allowed.  This applies to DMDs, as @Augster so clearly says.  I'd just add the caution that you shouldn't allow  your pace of play to be slowed because you have more devices

I have used my GPS and a laser in competition for years.

 

But the real question is, do you have a green density checker?   Without it, how will you ever compete? 😉

I am going to ask Santa for the nicest, bestest, most awesomeest green density checker for Christmas.

 

That is what being on the good list gets you.  If you end up on the naughty list, you get the bad Cobra driver.

And, believe it or not, some of us survive without a caddie, green reading book, lush perfect fairways, groomed perfect bunker sand etc, etc. 

Of course, we take extra shots to get around....

Can you really consider it golfing if you don't get out there and check this before the sun comes up?
