High tech caddy

IT WILL make you either the most popular or loathed player on the golf course.

The royal and ancient game is about to be rocked by a new row over "cheating" following the launch of a new hand-held satellite guidance system that gives exact measurements to the hole.

The new 'Caddy' system, which costs £249, can be clipped to a belt or golf bag and will provide exact read-outs of distances to bunkers, ponds and greens. Available to amateur golfers for the first time from next month, its manufacturers claim it will be one of the greatest shot-saving devices ever marketed.
