Everything from the golf balls and clubs that we use on the course, to online chat or sharing of our golf antics and skills, are changing from week to week. Some sceptics say that it will be the ruining of sport in general if technology becomes too engulfed in its running. As the dissertation comes to a close, it will become clearer as to whether or not technology is healthy or detrimental to the state of modern sport.
The dissertation contains the pros and cons of the technological advances that have occurred in the world of sport, the gains to the officials and the fanatics, as well as the losses, and also the improvements to the home viewer and the Internet generation.
