June - 2013
A few weeks ago, on Sunday night's 60 MINUTES, there was a fascinating segment on the emergence and astounding ability that a new technology, facial recognition software, and how it has become a hidden and pervasive part of our lives.
If you walk through the mall, this technology can recognize and identify you almost instantly and allow the operator to access all your private and personal information-address, age, phone number and even your social security number!
So… back to golf. Do you people who are using the sixth hole as your personal, private putting green before playing in a tournament, think no one sees you??? I'm not going to tell you how we know, but we have our ways.
Hey, knock it off! If you didn't know that's against the Rules, read below....
RULE 7 PRACTICE
