Ease of use
After leveling the launch monitor, you are ready to hit balls. Adding a tablet or projector is easy with free apps.
If you you want to have the best chance of hitting the ball close to the hole, you have to have a rangefinder. It doesn't matter if you slice the ball or hook the ball, knowing your distances is the key to playing better golf. They are more accurate than GPS and you can use them to find the distance to almost anything you can see. Line of sight is the only con of a rangefinder but if you can't take a few steps to the left or right to see the flag then you have no business shooting for the flag anyways. If you play in tournaments you can not use a rangefinder that calculates distance factoring in elevation changes with slope.
Golf for girls is getting more and more popular but manufactures are lagging with products. I have a little girl that has been playing in golf leagues since she was 6. Besides getting her to listen to her Dad, getting quality golf gear for girls has been the biggest struggle. There just isn't a big selection of apparel until they grow into young women. I found a site called Golf4Her that has a ton of golf gear for girls. They have tops, bottoms, shoes and accessories. They even have little collared onesies. This site is a site for all female golfers so you have to look for the junior stuff. At the time of this post if you hover over the "new" link at the top, you can select junior golf apparel or you can just click HERE. They have the biggest selection of girls stuff I have seen so far. I am always on the look out for girls golf apparel so if you have a site you like please share in the comments below.
Phil Mickelson Secrets of the short game has to be hands down one of the best golf instruction I have ever spent money on. Personally I own both the DVD and the book. First I purchased the DVD and I must have watched it everyday for a week straight and at least one a week for months after. After falling in love with the DVD I picked up the book just to have as a fan and compare to the videos. I might be a little bias because Lefty is my favorite pro golfer but I really love these products.
