Jake’s Journal: Good day for golf … I mean, work
It's not often we get a 65-degree January day in Kansas. So when today's temps started climbing, our minds started racing. How can we take advantage of a balmy winter afternoon while being productive? My friends Carl the Caddy and Dan the Engineer reminded me that we had promised to produce tutorial videos about our newest handheld – Approach G5, Garmin's touchscreen GPS for golf. So we convinced our buddy Jimmy to grab a camera and join us at Sycamore Ridge near Garmin HQ to shoot videos for the blog and our YouTube channel.
The good news: As models of efficiency, we shot a handful of how-to videos that Carl will be sharing with you in his weekly Caddy Confidential blog posts and on YouTube. We covered the "measure distance" feature, touch-targeting for club selection and manual pin placement for accurate distances. The bad news: As a model of futility, I shot a handful of golfballs into the rough and ravine. Our long-drive contest was a two-sided contest with my only contribution being comic relief. Using Approach G5's touch-targeting to display distances to a location – and from that location to the green – simply told me that I was in trouble. At least Jimmy was generous in letting me try as many tee shots as we had tape. Or else he was just collecting blackmail material. I really need help. And more 60-degree days. Until then, I'll be studying our Approach tutorials and listening to Carl and Dan. When they're not laughing at my swing.
