FOR THE CROWNE PLAZA INVITATIONAL AT COLONIAL
"I always want to see the half-cavity iron design down there. I don't want total blades, but with the half cavity I know I can work the ball, which is key to my game."

Neo+ GPS from Bushnell puts distance on a player's wrist
GPS AND LASER range finders are cool and useful, but they can be cumbersome. The Neo+ watch provides fast, accurate distance readouts, and it's hands-free—no walking back and forth from the cart, no belt clips. The Neo+ comes with 25,000 courses stored in memory, and an odometer, timer and alarm are included. The battery charge lasts about one year in watch mode and 14 hours in GPS mode, which translates to three rounds at a good club and two in a Tour pro-am.
The hole and par appear across the top of the screen.
Push one button on the 1st tee and the watch advances automatically for hands-free operation.
Distance to the center of the green is the largest number, with front and back of green measures below.
