I don't think it would have any effect on the speed of play. They take time on the greens and in there pre-shot routine. I've only seen them play in real life once and honestly I didn't think they were that slow. An amatuer nothing tourney, that is slow golf. They don't know how to putt out in a timely fashion or be ready to go when it is there turn. But the pros on the other hand were ready to go when it was there turn to hit. I voted no but I really don't care one way or another. They don't show on TV how as soon as the other player hits they are starting there pre-shot routine or reading their putt.

Oops....

That's the downside of spell checkers.... they find misspelled words, but if the misspelling is still a real word, then....

Surely you don't think that the pros use the numbers on the sprinklers? They may use some of those sprinklers, but they take all of their own measurements from them. In the pre tournament walkthroughs the pros and/or their caddies use lasers to verify everything in their yardage books, as well as adding anything else that they feel they might need.

If they are doing that before the round, why not just let them do it during the round?

I say go for it. No real downside as others have said. Just because you allow rangefinders doesn't mean a player should be allowed to bring along a netbook that models ball flight taking into account the wind, moisture in atmosphere, barometric pressure, phase of the moon, time-since-mowing, etc etc to come up with the "perfect" club. ... :)

Me, if I had such a computer, I'd still prolly chunk the critical approach shot on the 18th anyway but that's irreverent.
