Golf Gadget, SkyCaddie Approved For Play

Aug 17, 2007
Golf technology seems to be springing up every where for practically every part of the golf game. Like all of the space age metals they use today to manufacture the golf heads of drivers, irons, and putters. That also includes the high-tech manufacturing of golf balls and especially with the new golf balls from TaylorMade.

There are also the handheld GPS 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 within 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 to reach their way into the PGA and LPGA Tours. I don't think they'll replace the tour caddie, but rather provide them with all long overdue tool to aid the PGA or LPGA professional. Why not? Everything else about the game of golf has gone high-tech so why not include the SkyCaddie. The golfer still has to execute the golf shot so it's not taking anything away from the game. It may even speed up the game because the tour caddie won't have to flip through their yardage book to estimate the yardage. They just need to pull out the SkyCaddie and have the correct hole selected and they'll be able to determine the yardage in seconds with a couple feet.

I think it would be great for the game of golf to have a device like this because it would be useful for all ages at all levels of play.
