Please note that on December 22nd, 2018, we upgraded our site and unfortunately were not able to bring the user ids and passwords from the old site.  So if you were a previous member of MBGT, unfortunately you must re-register on this site.  Your old user id and password will not work.  When you re-register, please use your user id (display name) from the old MBGT site. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/).  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Update – May 31, 2019

We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for).  Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Anyone ever had a range finder, or heard of one, that became inaccurate? I noticed last week that my Bushnell range finder, yardage markers and gps watch were often in conflict. When I checked my Bushnell against another guy's, I was usually 10 to 15 yards less than his reading and up to 30 yards on a couple short par 4's. 

Didn't have a new battery to try, but the thing always worked fine until the battery died. Now it gives me a quick, albeit incorrect number with a seemingly strong battery.

That would probably explain it. I've had it for several years and didn't know I could adjust that setting. Ignorance is bliss, until it isn't. 😎

Probably an explanation here and a solution at the same time. Good luck!
