Forget others distance but focus on the center of the green
The story is that when you are counting distance to the green, your golf gps devices will show different figures for you such as the distance from where you are standing to the next hole, the distance to the sides of the green and also the distance to the center of the green. Normally, people only pay attention to the number showing the distance from where they are standing to the next target. This is not right but it will not make you get a good shot when the next target is in the green. To get the best opportunity for the next shot, you have to forget other figures and focus on the distance from where you are standing to the center of the green. By aiming at the center of the green you may get the possibility that the ball will go the way you want it to.
Know who you are and how far you can hit the ball
One of the amazing features of golf gps devices is that it can tell you how far each of your clubs can hit the ball. To be more precisely, by looking at your golf gps devices, you can tell how far you can hit the ball using each club you have. So what you need to do when you have the golf gps in your hands is to try hitting all the clubs you have and compare them together to see the distance you create using each golf club. Each person can hit a ball with a certain distance using a certain club. This is not something I am making up but there are many people who do not know their distances and finally end up cannot make the right decisions when choosing clubs. Once you know your distances, everything will get easier when you have to chose the clubs. The golf gps devices can show you the distances to the next targets so there is no problem in dealing with these.
One more thing to bear in your mind is that you have to check your distances on a regular basis. This is because all players will change their distances over the time and after each three months you should check your distances again. You should do the same thing when you change your clubs.
