First timer. Can’t find any rules on whether or not we can use phone apps and/or range finder for course navigation. I have no natural depth perception and GPS apps have become a NEED. Will I be up a creek?August 26, 2023 at 11:47 am #52266James CarterParticipant
You can use GPS apps or rangefinders. You just cannot use the slope function on a rangefinder. Hope this helps.August 26, 2023 at 2:05 pm #52272World Am StaffKeymaster
The one ball rule will not be in effect for the championship. All equipment used during the event must be USGA conforming. It is the player’s responsibility to determine conformity. Any player using non-conforming equipment will be subject to disqualification. Electronic Measuring Devices will be allowed during play, as long they measure distance only.”
Be certain that the App used is conforming, it should display on the App or be clarified in the App’s details and settings, etc. If you cannot confirm on the App itself, reach out directly to the App you used for clarification.August 26, 2023 at 2:12 pm #52273Regina IngramParticipant
Perfect. If I stick with the GHIN app for GPS I’m good. Thanks!August 26, 2023 at 2:24 pm #52275World Am StaffKeymaster
