Golf Technology Brings Golfers Close to Majors

Rory McIlroy was put in controversy when the young Northern Irish golfer claimed that golf technology allows weaker players to win major titles or if not, close to it. The statement was made on the eve of the USPGA Championship. The past 16 majors have produced 16 different winners including McIlroy and some of the other winners also came out as unexpected winners.

McIlroy, who has been known by the public for his honest opinions, said, “I’m just happy to be part of that group of 16. I think the reason is like this, fields are much deeper. Partly because the guys have just got better and have worked hard; they are putting more into the game physically, mentally, practice, technical, everything. But I think one of the big things is the technology. I think 25 years ago you had the really good players that could play with basically anything and nowadays the technology lets maybe some of the lesser players catch up with the better players. And I think that’s why you see so many more guys winning these days.”

Different golf tournament associations have taken action in the recent years by expressing their contention to the advancement of golf technology, particularly with the specifications released along the newer golf balls and clubs.
