Google glasses and the impact on golf and golf travel

I have been watching the reported development of Google glasses for some time and as more detailed reviews of their functionality surface, such as here, it caused me to wonder what impact and application would they be used for golf and golf travel. Details from Google can be viewed here and video.

Some ideas;

With GPS functionality the glasses can serve as a yardage guide…no need to fumble with hand held devices!

On course instruction….with a side hill lie or long bunker shot, ask for guidance on best technique….easier to have virtual lessons….golf instruction is cutting edge in many respects but hitherto I do not believe the instructor has been able to see what the golfer sees, such as ball position or alignment…from the golfers perspective….no more.

Virtual caddie tips on how to play each hole and shot….will a google caddy know good jokes as well?

Your friends can leave virtual notations about what they recommend on the menu or best beer behind the bar or how they played a particular hole

Share your hole in one with your friends…..does it go viral….can the camera follow the flight of a golf ball?

Will they be able to offer flight track on your screen and thus improve the find ability of golf balls?

Golfers with a short temper and poor golf behavior may be caught on camera as they hit the tee marker in anger or damage the cart

….no wonder privacy advocates do not know what to think, everything is subject to sharing & going viral! Quite a thought.

Checked Baggage Assistance…know before you buy

As airlines refine and adjust their baggage revenues streams, travelers often struggle to understand what additional costs they will endure for checked baggage…even if traveling on a Business or First Class Class ticket. I have recently discovered a great website which appears to be very accurate and a terrific resource for comparing baggage costs.

Luggage Limits  is also available as an iPhone/iPad/android app and is a useful resource to utilize for travel. When traveling with your golf clubs it is far better to be fully informed before you approach the check in desk!
