Grip technology inserts are now included in all Cobra clubs and Taylor Made just introduced a putter with tech grip inserts. As I understand it these tech inserts not only tell you how far you hit the ball, but also information about face impact, spin, etc.
My question is if these are legal for tournament play. Isn't part of the game figuring out how you are striking the ball on any given day and then making adjustments to score? If one competitor has this technology that enables them to confirm feel, see the amount of adjustment necessary and then make adjustments faster than a player that has to hit it a few more times to figure all this out, is that really a level playing field? Or, does the technology give one player an edge over the other?
