How exactly do golf gps watches work and what features should I look out for? Golf GPS watches help you navigate the golf course thanks to satellites as well as record and save your golf scores and statistics. Golf GPS watches include a map of the course, whereabouts you are on the course and the distances between you, your ball and the hole. You should look for a watch that includes as many preloaded courses as possible - all of them in this list have at least 30,000. As well as the basic yardage information to the pin, the more advanced models will help you with avoiding hazards by giving you the exact distance to clear them as well. If you want to be really nerdy, you may also want to think about a model that comes with a mobile phone app. Sync your watch to the app, and it will then give you information about your round when you’re back in the bar - including shots taken, the fairways you hit and the putts you took.

In September 2012, perhaps before Trump’s own presidential ambitions were so strong, he offered Obama some advice on how to better use his time on the course. “Obama should play golf with Republicans opponents rather than his small group of friends. That way maybe the terrible gridlock would end,” Trump wrote . “Playing golf with business associates creates a relaxing atmosphere where everyone has fun,” Trump wrote on Twitter in 2013. “‘That’s why so many huge deals are closed on a golf course.’” He labelled the observationTRUMP 101.” Trump also talked up the virtues of business on fairways in an interview with Golf magazine six years ago that called him the “No. 1 Business Titan.” “I've closed many deals on the golf course, and I've met many great friends on the golf courseTerry Lundgren, the head of Macy's, for example—and so many people in the real estate industry whom I wouldn't have a relationship with if it weren't for golf,” Trump said.

But it's a golf course you've got to stay patient on. "You've just got to hit good golf shots. You can't really fake it around here so it's just about continuing to play well." Lurking just behind Rose is in-form Canadian Adam Hadwin, who shot a 71 to follow up his six-under-par 66 on Thursday, and defending champion Brandt Snedeker, who shot a three-under-par 69. Hadwin, who lit up last week's CareerBuilder Challenge at La Quinta with a brilliant 59 before just being pipped for victory in the final round, said he hoped he could apply lessons from that agonising near-miss two this weekend. "I played really well last week as well and I was in contention and gave myself a chance to win that golf tournament. This is probably the best golf I've been playing in my career and it's just a matter of staying patient," Hadwin said. "Just go out and hit some fairways, give yourself some looks and you'll have a chance." — AFP

Woods hit only four of the 14 fairways in his 76, the highest opening round of a year in his 21-year career." Woods lies 12 shots behind leader Justin Rose and his opening round was "a sobering reminder of how difficult it will be to recapture even a glimpse of the glories of his illustrious past", says Derek Lawrenson of the Daily Mail . "The good news for Woods is there appeared no issues with his back despite spending much of the round gouging his ball out of the juicy rough. His short game also appeared in fine order. He suffered, however, as the round progressed and appeared to tire mentally after so long away." Justin Rose PGA Tour

He picked up ate shots on day three to move on to 12-under. He's one off the lead. I hit a lot more fairways today. Holed a few putts. Still to make a par-5. I chipped in an eagle. It was a really solid round. England's Tyrell Hatton is at the top of the leaderboard.

Despite overly familiar chunky visuals (Crossy Road has a lot to answer for), this fast-paced, breezy game is a lot of fun, with you dragging left and right to avoid blundering into rocks, and lifting your finger to soar into the air, aiming to catch another rampaging beast. Much like previous entries in the series, Super Stickman Golf 3 finds a tiny golfer dumped in fantastical surroundings. So rather than thwacking a ball about carefully tended fairways and greens, there are castles full of teleporters and a moon base bereft of gravity. The Ryder Cup, this is not. New to the series is a spin mechanic, for flipping impossible shots off of ceilings and nudging fluffed efforts holewards on the greens. You also get turn-by-turn battles against Game Centre chums and a frenetic multiplayer race mode. The spendthrift release is limited, though, restricting how many two-player battles you have on the go, locking away downloadable courses beyond the 20 initially built-in, and peppering the game with ads.
