What a great question. I am a hacker at golf and let’s get that out of the way. If I shoot under a 100 that a Great Day! When I have played I am amazed at how much electronics people carry along with them.
Laser measuring devices, clubs that have a laser pointer, levels to make sure the puts are going in the right direction, etc. The one that impresses me the most is the laser measuring device that tells the golfer how far they are from the hole, and based on the distance they know what club to use.
It’s so precise that the measuring device is right on with the distance. So the golfer takes the right club out of the bag and lines up the ball with the hole. They take a couple of practice swings and then step up to the ball.
After looking up and down to make sure they are heading in the right direction, and a lot of serious mental gymnastics with the synchronization of the club and the swing, the golfer pulls the club back and swings to hit the ball. The ball goes straight and lands feet from the cup.
The device was spot on and the golfer made a great choice in selecting the right club. Beautiful shot all because of the information that the golfer got from the laser device.
Now their is one thing wrong with this scenario, the golfer was and excellent golfer. If I tried it there is no amount of information that will make my game better. So I guess that if your golf game is not so good your game will not get better using the device, but if you are a good golfer than the more information you have the better the game.
I have no desire to get better so the measuring device is not applicable to me but if you are a serious golfer you might want the best money can buy. All in all their accuracy is astounding so will it help your golf game, I think only if you are good enough to make it happen.
