America is the world’s biggest market for golf by a big margin and about half of the golf players and courses are in the country. According to the Economist, about 30 million Americans were golfers in 2006, unfortunately, golfing has been seeing a decline in public interest since them. The Sports Techie community blog loves golf and the integration of technology such as range finders, GPS tech and apps to make the game more appealing for everyone no matter skill level or dedication to the game.

In 2013, 160 of 14,600 golf facilities closed, which also marked an 8t...

The Best Golf Swing For You: Universal Mechanics With Individual Technique

Getting the right golf swing for the individual can be one of the most frustrating experiences for any golfer. The issue becomes new golfers wanting to hit the ball like Jordan Spieth or Jason Day without developing the technique that works for themselves. After learning the mechanics that are almost universal in every swing, a golfer can start to figure out their natural swing. The Sports Techie community blog thanks Phil Oscarson for sharing his blog about swing mechanics with you in hopes it helps readers and followers improve their golf game. Oscarson also wrote a #SportsTechie guest blog last month about technology changing the face of golf.

Artificial Grass Turf In Sports

Natural grass has always been the most popular surfaces for many sports, such as football, golf, rugby and even tennis. However, with modern developments in technology coming along it is right to wonder whether or not we will see a lot of artificial grass among sports in the future. Artificial grass started with companies like Forever Green Lawns installing fake grass in people homes and gardens. Being made from a lot of synthetic fibres, artificial grass looks and supposedly acts like natural grass does. It would seem that artificial grass would be the perfect substitute for grass in many circumstances, however with fans and even athletes raising questions about the turf, how effective would it really be in certain sports?

It is likely that we will see an increase in the use of artificial grass in sports across all of the different types that are played on grass.

Crowdsourced Caddies and the Sports Tech Future of Golf

Has golf peaked or is sports tech to the rescue of a fun and rewarding sport that requires patience, passion and a skill set unlike any other sport that takes on average 4.5 hour to complete the golfer experience. Tiger Woods is back chasing the 18 professional majors won by Jack Nicklaus, tablet tech is showing up on courses, and the First Tee is shining a light to help American kids understand how golf and life are seamless opportunities to “rise up” as they say here in Atlanta.
