Eric Lohman, PGA, shows us how to properly use a rangefinder to steer clear of trouble

Powered by Shot Scope

On the links, most people just point and shoot with their rangefinder. And then swing away with only a single datapoint. I get it. Heck, I do it too.

But is that the best way to maximize rangefinder technology on the course? Nope.

In this week’s Monday Mulligan feature, Eric Lohman, PGA GM at Monarch Beach Golf Links, shows us how he measures not only the distance to the pin with his Shot Scope PRO L2, but also establishes where the big trouble is and plans accordingly to steer clear before he goes through his preshot routine. Hitting laser irons close to the pin is an awesome accomplishment — but one that only happens a few times a round for low-to-mid handicappers. And rarely for high handicappers. Instead of trying to play the perfect shot. Play a shot leaving you in the smartest position to shoot the lowest score.

Thank you Eric and Shot Scope for this far too easy-to-follow lesson that will help us all shoot consistently lower scores.

If you’re looking to buy a new rangefinder, look no more. Not only is the PRO L2 one of the best, affordable rangefinders on the market, with every purchase now through the end of July through the link listed below, $25 will be donated to the So Cal PGA’s PGA HOPE program supporting our troops.

Watch. Practice. And take what you’ve learned out to the course!
