Garmin Approach S1

 

It won't make the shot for you, but this accurate and simple to use GPS golf watch will give you more confidence that you're making the correct club selection.

Great value

 

I bought this from Tesco Direct at an excellent price. Even although the product has been replaced by two newer versions, it does exactly what is required. It was delivered quickly to my local store, so no mind deliveries!
