GolfBlogger’s Garmin Approach R10 Review.

The Garmin Approach R10 is a small, reasonably-priced launch monitor that uses a phone app to track a dozen key metrics, including backspin, sidespin, face to path, launch direction, club path, club face deviation, attack angle, launch angle, total distance, carry distance and deviation.

The R10 is quite clever and easy to use.

Very reasonably priced at around $120, the Garmin Approach G12 offers distance to the front middle and back of greens, as well as to hazards. It also will keep score, track your distance walked and shot distance.

I’ve got this with me on every round on my home course (Washtenaw Golf Club), where I need a quick read more than I need the sort of detailed mapping I’d get from a phone app.

I haven’t written a full review yet, but I have enjoyed using the Kam Kaddie Motorized Golf Cart over the past several weeks.

The electric three-wheeled cart has a remote for sending the cart forward in a straight line, but is steered more like a Sun Mountain Speed Cart. You hold on to the handle, and while the motor is driving it forward, you nudge it in the direction you want the car to go.

In this sense, it’s more of a powered assist cart than a remote one. But it still makes walking much easier. It also seems very reasonably priced compared to other powered trolleys.
