So you find yourself with a lot of time on your hands and want to get good at hitting a small ball into a small hole across massive yardage. That’s what she said! Wait, what? In any event, I mean golf. The game of kings. The king’s favorite game. The game of, uh, financial advisory companies. The game is deceptively difficult. How hard can it be, right? It’s not like anyone is trying to stop you from getting that small ball into that small hole. Yeah right. You are trying to stop yourself, however. In other words, it’s hard as hell and we need all of the help we can get. Not all of us have terrifying dads that force us to practice 20 hours a day.
For those of us without said Earl Woods in our life, there is tech like the GreenPlay sensor. This handy and dandy sensor packs a lot of tracking wallop into its small form factor. It’s small enough to hang out inside of your pocket, after all. What does it do? Well, it’s essentially for putting. You lay it next to the ball and it will interact with the universe and let you know all kinds of relevant information about the shot you are about to take. This is what comes to pros with years of practice and astute eyes, but who has time for any of that? Let technology do it for you!
In any event, this tech is pretty darned cool. Before too long you’ll be reading greens with ease. Speaking of before too long, however, it will have to be a bit longer than that. GreenPlay isn’t out yet. Hit up their Kickstarter to get in on the ground floor.
