I am planning to give Pelz's 3x4 system a shot this year (or really, a 3x3 system until I get an X-wedge), but I'm not ready to dish out the big bucks for a fancy Bushnell rangefinder to calculate my yardages for the various swings. Anyone have experience using the various $20 & under "yardage finders" I often see for sale? How accurate are they? I don't need to gauge anything beyond about 90-100 yards.Hi Jack!(I always wanted to say that...) Give your legs and/or a good old pedometer a try. No need for fancy stuff, and you should know how long your stride is anyway! (You wouldn't believe how many people think their stride is "a yard" long... when it is really 29"! That is 7" a step wrong... when they are walking off 25 or 30 paces they can be 5 yards off of their distance, which can easily cause them to choose the wrong club.A pedometer works well, and you can learn your own body. By the way, the Pelz thing is right on, but you really need to work at it. I slowed down my swing and did the Pelz thing last year and went from a nine index to a 5.John
