'Caddy' system golf gadget uses GPS to give exact measurements to the hole

sagamore golf

A new handheld device is, um, seriously teeing off golf's governing bodies. The gadget uses GPS technology to pull down exact distances to the current hole, as well as all the bunkers, ponds, greens, etc. en route. Traditionalists are pushing for a ban on the £249 device which will be available to consumers starting next month, contending that the system essentially amounts to cheating. Traditional caddies are worried the device will put them out of business, as they make a living from their in depth knowledge of the local courses. Of course, golf's governing bodies don't have any control over amateurs like your Uncle Bob, who already pre-ordered his.
