Ever wondered what’s inside those books that you see the Tour players and caddies referencing on the course? In this video, Jaacob shows you the inside of one of these very books.

I really geek out about yardage books, so much so that I built a website all about them. Learn how to make one for your own course at http://www.flaghunting.com

This was super helpful! Thank you!

Teppo Einari says:

I really hope they never allow gps or other distance devices on the Tour.

Gene Gray says:

lso before a pro tourny there are people that go ahead of the players and draw the holes abd put them in a book. The caddy marks them up

You better not get caught by the NSA…

Mitch Brunick says:

Was wondering what the dimensions of the books were? How do you create the book. Just use blank sheets of paper and cut to the dimensions then draw and write notes?

El Chialeux says:

This is Jaacob Bowden, he's not a cady, he is a pro player (not on the PGA tour yet tho)

you're so right, i always think about why the pros can't use gps. I know that they're not allowed in amateur events because not everyone could afford one so it creates an imbalance in information. I guess the rule just carries over from amateur rules.

I guess standardizing units of measurements is out of the question…

MrTanker10a says:

Why won't the PGA, USGA and the R&A get their acts together and allow the caddies to use GPS devices? That would help with the problem of slow-play. These charts or maps could be used as reference data for the caddies if they so choose to use raw data alike these….

do we have to make our own course map strategy? I am deaf I teach myself and want to learn from their secret strategy.
