Yardage Calculators Use in Events

Hey, everyone...

I am a new TMC member. Additionally, I have never competed in actual tournaments.

Are there any TMC rules regarding the use of range finders -- either hand-held "shooters" or smartphone-based GPS apps -- during tournament play? If I am permitted to to use a hand-held "shooter", am I obligated to disable any feature that includes the slope in its calculation?

I'm seeking some guidance here so that I don't mistakenly get myself into trouble right out of the gate on 04/07!

Looking forward to a great year with new people.


Re: Yardage Calculators Use in Events

Any yardage calculating device, either handheld or smartphone is allowed as long as the Slope function, if available, is not used. Welcome aboard!
