need some wall decor


I recently bought the Tour Precision range finder & can only describe it as erratic. I seem to get different distances when l try rechecking the distance if that makes sense. Maybe l am using it incorrectly. Thought it was point cross hairs on the flag & press..⛳..

Charlie Pereira says:

Bushnell definitely the way to go

James brown says:

GPS for rough distances but Bushnell for for distance wedges.
I have my yard ages for my “9” wedges and an exact number is good to know. I’m no pro but it all helps!

Roger Norris says:

nonchalant phone toss executed very well.

Vincent Coleman says:

Hello Mr Finch, Friday Question.
By now we all know the correct grip via 100’s of internet videos but very few talk about “GRIP PRESSURE”.. If #1 is the softest and #10 strangling it what # Pressure do YOU use or advise and is it the same pressure for both hands? An old Lee Trevino video he tells you to grip it stronger with the last 3 fingers of the left hand (R/H golfer). I’m sure many golfers would like your advice on this!
Keep up the Great Video’s..

Hi pete what was your handicap when you turned pro

Alexander Schwarzbart says:

I use the Golfshot Pro App for normal rounds and for tournament a bushnell.

Paul Richards says:

We recently followed a 4 ball all using their rangefinders…They looked like 18+ handicappers and it must have added half an hour to the round waiting for 4 people to take turns mulling over their yardages…Painful. I use a Garmin s2 watch and its really quick, just a glance, and its helped reduce my handicap from 20 to 8 over the last year or so. I got a ribbing for buying another ‘toy’ but your regular playing partners soon start to ask you for their yardages…Invaluable tool. Love the videos Pete.

Claire Smith says:

ive had 3 devices the garmin s5 a bushnell tour rangefinder and a izzo yardage finder. for me the bushnell is easier to use as it will not need satellite’s to pick up the yardage u just zap at your preferred distance the others need to pick up your location and I have found in the past not all courses are picked up on. stevo

benellidown says:

I use a good Bushnell rangefinder along with an inexpensive clip on GPS on my golf bag showing front/mid/back. The clip on is a cheap GPS but works really well and I’ll take a peak at that when getting my club out of the bag, after getting the yardage from the Bushnell. Both really help on unfamiliar golf courses or when you are not able to see the flag due to hills, trees, doglegs, etc. Some golf courses are not so good at posting yardages in the fairway, do not have yardage books and even sometimes have no indicators of where the flag is on the green. If on my home course I just use the rangefinder as I’m already familiar with where the pin is located in relation to front/mid/back. I’ve tried using the expensive GPS handheld units to show hazard distances and everything about a hole, but just found I didn’t want to deal with that much detail on a screen while playing. I didn’t like the watches either because I do not like anything on my arm while swinging/wearing a glove. I also just play sometimes without anything other than sprinkler head yardages, but to be honest, I usually play slower because of it or found I played more conservatively. All in what works for your game though.

Ryan Lhotka says:

Anyone use the hybrid Gps/range finder?

Grant Puckett says:

Range finder over gps because they’re tournament legal and gps’s are not

MrShanghai34 says:

Started out with a skycaddie watch…. loved it…. Bought another handheld skycaddie unit and ended up throwing it in a lake, ***Do not buy refurbed stuff*** Now trying out the swami izzo 4000+.. works great so far

Liam Hewitt says:

Hey Pete. I am a 15 year old junior golfer in new zealand. I play representative golf but need new irons moving from regular to stiff flex. My current r7 irons are very old and I am looking for new ones. the problem is that getting fit for clubs is too expensive and my dad wont let me get fit for some relatively new clubs. what do you think about buying second hand clubs without getting fit?

Jack Evans says:

I love these Finch friday’s Pete! I would love it if some of you could subscribe to my channel! Great video again!

Ma Ja says:

Officially had the Neo Ghost for 1 and 1/2 rounds, along side the bushnell laser that I’ve had for about 2 years. BOTH are a must in my mind, but if I had to choose only one it would certainly be the Neo. Shot a 73 on a course rated 74.4, the green distances were crucial in over a dozen shots. I probably only used the laser 6 times, most from 125 and in. I’d recommend both for really good players who can execute a shot thats going to get them 4-5 yards closer to the pin, if that doesn’t sound like you, save your money on the laser. A few times I used both on the same shot.

justin morris says:

hey guys! in my opinion i love a rangefinder, but what i have come to notice that one of the key points or even “selling points” of gps units is that u get the flexibility of being able to see what is in front of u on a course u have never seen. for example i play the same course all the time and i know every corner of the course so a rangefinder is suitable for giving me those yardages. now if i go play a course i have never played a gps is able to show me things in front of me i may not know are there. like how far a bunker is around a corner i cant range, or what is down at the bottom of hill or etc…….. where a rangefinder you can only see what you can visually see through the hole.

Simon Southby-Ryland says:

Hi with regards to the GPS vs Rangefinder….I have used both but have now settled on a Garmin GPS watch…the reason for this is my home course is tree lined, and on the quite regular occasion I am on an adjacent fairway to the one I should be on, a rangefinder is no good as I don’t have line of sight to my target.

harry allardyce says:

laser rangefinder got the bushnell tour v3 and i love it

Tom Pitts says:

Any Apple Watch apps coming or good ones currently on the market?

Dan B says:

I must be the only one that just uses my eyes and yardage markers on course…. All rangefinders do is slow play down in my opinion, I also find it humorous when a club golfer takes a Bushnell out, says for eg “its 173 to the flag” then tops it down the fairway!!! At least they had the yardage bang on I guess lol

willscharlie1 says:

I use both gps and rangefinder and I agree It’s easy with a watch as you’ve got back middle front yardage, layup yardages and on advanced watches pin placement. I don’t think they are as accurate as the laser but only within 5-10 yards. Love both they’ve helped my game I find them really helpful.

Niklas Waldemarson says:

What do you all think about: I think it’s great!

Ian Poulter: I hope so.. It’s 2016 not 1990. Get rid of the stuffy old rules that hold golf back. Make it more fun everyone.

Ma Ja says:

How about both? I’ve been using a range finder and am in need of the front/center/back distances, so I just got a neo ghost to team up with the laser. Figured it’s the best of both worlds. Why not?

David Boddy says:

Finding these Finch Fridays pleasant, informative and enjoyable :)

Bryan H says:

get too the point who cares about where you are , idiot damn

Carl Broadbent says:

Has anyone tried the Tom Tom gps watch?

theMANxGOLFER says:

Rangefinder over GPS because of accuracy to the pin, pin placement for the day helps which is published on the courses I play. Strategy plays a role on whether or not to attack a pin or find a spot in the middle or below the hole. Courses I’m not familiar with require a GPS to help with blind shots which I recommend Golfbuddy as they are preloaded with courses. Leupold makes the best rangefinder from my experience because of accuracy but like most manufacturers the competition is close enough to not make large difference if you find a good deal.

Malcolm A. says:

I use a “Bushnell neo xs” watch device and really like it. Gives me all the info I need and isn’t obtrusive.

Loving these Finch Friday shows by the way; they and your other vlogs etc are better than most TV programmes!
