I found that this thing is best when I clip it to my hat bill on the UNDERSIDE. It's more hidden, I can just press it with my thumb and I can hear it better. Sometimes I clip to my shirt at the chest buttons area, sometimes belt. Yardage to the middle of the green is basically all I need. The rangefinder is nice for scoping yardage to carry hazard or for dog-leg club decisions, so I can bring that to new courses occasionally.
