This comes from the PGA Merchandise Show, where Sports Illustrated's Michael Bamberger was slumming with Greg Norman, who was there to promote a new GPS gizmo that provides yardages and more. Here's the whole exchange, after Bamberger questioned whether the gadget was necessary:

"Absolutely," Norman said. No one says the word absolutely with more authority than Greg Norman. "He's already got the yardage
book. That's not an outside agency, why would this be? Now he's got a
little handheld device in his back pocket. What's the difference
between that and the rangefinder? The USGA has already allowed
rangefinders." "I don’t know," I said. "I'm trying to get away from cell phones and all that when I'm on the golf course." "The war with the cell phones is over," Norman said, with good humor and a certain finality. "The cell phones won."
