Golf Gadget, SkyCaddie Approved For Play

Golf technology seems to be springing up every where for practically every part of the golf game. All of the space age metals these day to manufacture the golf heads of drivers, irons, and putters. The high-tech manufacturing of golf balls as well especially with the new golf balls from TaylorMade.

There are also the handheld GPS golf devices that have been around for a couple years to help in computing yardages on the golf course. These devices have been forbidden on the PGA and LPGA tours as well as in tournament play, but one such device has recently been given the nod. The SkyCaddie powered by SkyGolf's advanced SG2 technology, gives you the same information that a Pro would receive from a top PGA TOUR Caddie — all in the palm of your hand. The SkyCaddie was chosen by the PGA Learning Center and is the FIRST electronic measuring device approved for use during the Adams Golf Tight Lies Tour!

The SkyCaddie measures over hills and around obstacles. It calculates yardages up to 40 targets per hole in less than a second, automatically! No aiming, no missing. You don't need a clear line of sight or reflective target with the SkyCaddie. Because the targets are pre-programmed, the SkyCaddie eliminates the need to aim through a lens, accidentally hitting the wrong target on a hole, or trying to hit a pin with a laser beam at 200 yards.

It'll be interesting to see how long it will take for these devices reach their way into the PGA and LPGA Tours.

Have you tried this golf gadget? If so I'd like to hear your comments.
