You can also measure yardages for shots played from anywhere on the course.

The Garmin Connect golf community can even assemble your ideal round, combining your best score for each hole to get your ideal 18 for that course.
Green View Display
The Green View feature on your Approach S20 shows you the true shape and layout of the green, even if you’re behind it. You can manually reposition the pin to today’s location for accurate shot selection.
Keep a Digital Scorecard
Approach S20 golf watch easily keeps track of your score throughout your round. When you’re done, you can save, review and even use the Garmin Connect™ Mobile fitness app with your smartphone to upload and share that great round with your golfing buddies online.

Now, via Bluetooth® technology, you can read that email or text you’ve been waiting for — even in the middle of the fairway.
