Playing golf typically takes years and many swings to get right. Even then a hole in one is something quite rare in the golfing world. Golf Digest says its something that happens only once in 12,500 shots if you are an amateur. But what if there was a way to achieve this masterful golf stroke on a regular occasion? What would that mean for the world of golfing pros and their caddies? Taking the risk and reward away from golf by making holes in one easy as pie could have a devastating effect on the golfing world. Sure, robots can do anything humans can do these days.
Ask anyone in Japan and they will agree with you. From cleaning houses like on the Jetsons to driving you from place to place with Google’s self-driving cars, robots are more intuitive and capable than ever before. The Age of Robots – That’s where a robot named Eldrick comes onto the golf green. An interesting factoid: Eldrick is actually the birth name for Tiger Woods aka Eldrick “Tiger” Woods.
Eldrick is quickly transforming the golfing green to feature far more than caddies and golfing carts. This electrical marvel is blowing minds and sending golf balls sailing.
Straight into the hole, that is. If a robot can hit a golf ball into the hole what does that mean for the world of golf? After all, this is a game of skill and luck.
