For blind golfers, the need for their caddy to tell them everything from how far the hole is to where their ball landed can be frustrating. A new device can increase a blind golfers independence through the use of GPS and text to speech. The Golf Buddy Voice is a device that will tell you the distance to the center of the green, front of the green, or back of the green. The device can be purchased from Amazon for $122.79 with free shipping. The Golf Buddy Voice can be clipped to a pocket or be worn like a watch, it has 36,000 golf courses already loaded, and it just needs to be connected to a computer to be upgraded. Though we have reports of blind golfers using the device, we're not sure if it's completely accessible without sighted assistance. If you've tried or seen one of these units, let us know what you think in the comments.
