    Technology in Golf
    Technology is everywhere and whenever Dennis isn’t overclocking he likes to get out of the lab and play a couple rounds of Golf.  For those of you who do not know Golf is a skill game with a simple quest of getting a small white ball into small hole at the end of a grassy field.  To do this you use a specially designed club and combined with how the player swings the club can advance the ball a considerable distance or maybe not at all. 

    The rules of golf are quite old however advancements in technology have made the game easier to play.  For instance a laser range finder can help a player judge distances better so they pick a correct club for hitting that distance.  Likewise GPS has made it easy to get course stats, record a score and even suggestions on how to hit a certain shot.    In this segment Dennis gives a brief overview of some of the equipment he uses to play a round of golf and goes through what he has in his bag.
