METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PREDICTING THE LIKELY SUCCESS OF GOLF SWINGS

Singleshot Entertainment,...

1. A method of predicting the likelihood of a golf swing or consecutive swings sinking a ball in a hole prior to the swing or consecutive swings comprised of the steps of:a) selecting a post tee off swing or post tee off consecutive swings in a golf game;
b) setting up a communication enabled data processing facility linked to a database of historical play information including at least ball position and golf course to calculate odds of success of the upcoming swing and/or subsequent swings,
c) placing electronic communication enabled ball position identifying equipment at a functional distance and remote location relative to the ball involved in the subject swing or swings,
d) activating the electronic communication enabled ball position identifying equipment so as to precisely determine pre-swing ball position and broadcasting this information to the processing facility in real time,
e) comparing the real time pre-swing ball position information received at the processing station with the database of prior ball positions in order to calculate the odds of the upcoming swing or swings terminating in a hole.
