Golfers will soon be able to find their lost balls in the rough with the help of the Ballfinder Scout, a new electronic golf innovation designed to locate lost golf balls.

The gadget works by using digital imaging technology to locate the white on all standard golf balls.

According to the company, the 3.2 megapixel imager can locate golf balls within seconds at a range of 35 feet with as little as only three dimples on the ball visible.

The location of the lost golf ball is then displayed on an LCD display, the Ballfinder SCOUT will then emmit a vibro-buzz to confirm it has located a golf ball, a series of LED lights then point the golfer in the direction of the golf ball.

Backed by Nick Faldo, the Ballfinder SCOUT will cost £148.
