Golf GPS Receivers Increasing in Popularity
Although golf GPS receivers have been around for a little while they are increasingly popular…. and unpopular. The technology provides assistance to golfers by giving distances to bunkers, tees, ponds, and greens. This, of course, provides the golfer with a more accurate club selection based off distances calculated by the golf GPS receiver.
As you might imagine, many people think this is an unfair advantage.
“At the moment the penalty for using them would be disqualification,” he said. “There are static distance markers on many courses. You can also go out and pace the course if you want to – that’s what caddies do – and many clubs provide the same information in printed guides. That is also accepted.”
Some people though claim that it is still the shot that matters more than anything else and say the device does not give an advantage.
