The biggest discrepancy I notice is on Penrith’s ninth hole, a long par four back to the clubhouse. I’ve pitched out of the trees (again) alongside the plate marking 100m to the centre of the green. The G3 reads 91m— that’s a full club.
Routinely throughout the round, the G3’s distances are out by a metre or two — not drastic certainly, but enough to make me still step out my approaches the way I normally would.
like with a human caddie, the G3 would take some getting used to.
Call me old-fashioned, but I enjoy the thinking time in working things out myself.
But perceived distance discrepancy aside, there is a lot to like about the G3.
It’s small enough to clip to your belt or bag. It could be the perfect travelling golfer’s companion, holding upwards of 400 Australian courses and unlimited access to thousands around the world.
The screen is clear and easy to use, and the ability to move the crosshairs around to tell you distances to hazards and the like is a real boon.
