I personally don't think it would improve the pace of play, unless by technology you mean changing the tech on the course management side. I know that most courses allot for 4-4.5 hours for an 18 hole round, but I could shave an hour off that for most courses, and i'm a bad golfer (30 Handicap). But I think it would require a whole new structure from the perspective of the course management side. Carts would need to be individualized (maybe more of those cool surfing thingys). Pairing/handicap/pace would need to be individually tracked. I think a "pace" handicap could be considered as an individual stat that you could maybe add to the GHIN or something else to assist with pairings. I know a lot of people think that" It only takes a minute for me to find my ball, hit, and then go find my buddies ball", but if you think about it, a minute per shot FOR A PAR GOLFER is about 72 minutes per round. Now think of the average handicap golfer (idk what that is, so let's say 95) that's 95 minutes shaved off a round if every player drives to there ball and hits it. This may all be useless if you walk of course, but I think that's how some people that walk can keep up with foursomes in carts. I know this would take away from the social aspect of the game though. Sometimes your just out there with your buds hanging out, while you happen to be playing golf. It's a touchy subject from both sides, and the last thing we need is to alienate NEW people from trying golf, so it may just add another wrinkle in it.
