As a guy who gets beat by his 8-year-old son playing mini golf I have never felt the need to try my hand at real golf. I suspect there would be nothing more than a string of curses uttered along with lots of frustration if I tried. Some people take golf very seriously with high-end clubs and GPS for the course.

Garmin has announced a new update for its Approach G5 and G3 golf GPS systems that adds stat tracking to the mix. The software update is free for owners of the G5 or G3 and allows the golfer to keep track of fairway hits, greens hit in regulation, putts per round, and how far they hit with each club.

The software promises to be very easy to use. The software asks if you hit the fairway after each shot and measuring how far you hit each shot is optional. After the game the software lets you tally the number of shots made and can track stats for multiple players.
