overall, and gives a shot count and time display. The new display shows all of the statistics without moving to another screen, which is a nice feature.
In the target mode, you are able to set a distance and test your consistency over a 10-shot round. All of the stats are displayed after each shot, in addition to a score of 1-10 depending on how close you get to the preset distance goal.
In the approach mode you can hone your skills instead of practicing one shot over and over. The Swing Caddie2 will give random distances to hit to and after every shot gives you a score of how you did, then switch to another random distance.

For anyone looking for a flexible, light golf shoe that has as much turf traction as anything on the market, the new FreeStyle shoe by FootJoy is a great choice.
Combining the look and feel of a running or athletic shoe, the contemporary styling of the FreeStyle makes this an ultra-comfortable shoe that conforms to your foot and is as light as any shoe on the market. It is somewhat like a hybrid in that it has a durable and breathable mesh upper that allows the foot to flex naturally, while the F.R.O.G.S. outsole technology, where traction elements increase ground contact points throughout the swing in all weather and underfoot conditions, provides maximum traction.
The F.R.O.G.S. Technology incorporates a super-flexible new SoftMaxTM translucent outsole that offers both a softer feel and extra grip, while a new FTFTM 3.0 midsole compound is the brand’s softest and most comfortable yet. The Softspikes Tour LockTM system and new translucent Pulsar cleats deliver exceptional low-profile grip with a dynamic, frog-like flex. Beneath the upper is an InnerSokTM Fit System - including both TongueLokTM and HeelLokTM mechanisms – to help hold the foot securely in place throughout the golf swing.
“FreeStyle is arguably FootJoy’s most imaginative and distinctive shoe ever and will particularly help golfers who would benefit from increased freedom of movement when swinging the golf club,” said Doug Robinson, FJ Vice President of Design and Development Worldwide. “By drawing inspiration from a tree frog and emulating their incredible grip and flexibility properties in the texture and functional elements of an outsole, our design and development team has created something truly unique in the golf shoe market.”
This shoe gets its name from its flexibility that is made possible by a new midsole compound and construction methods that allows for greater torsional flexibility; along with the elimination of the internal shank that encourages maximum freedom of movement and ground contact.
Along with a two-year waterproof warranty, the FreeStyle comes in several colors: Navy/Orange/Lime, White/Grey/ Charcoal, Black/White/Grey, Grey/Green/ Navy, Grey/Navy/Berry (Boa closure system), Black/Lime/Grey (Boa closure system).
