As well as being a top choice of professionals, Bushnell rangefinders are also at the forefront of the amateur game. England South Region and Surrey County coach John Noble has extolled the performance and versatility of Bushnell devices for not only competition but as part of practice regimes for his elite students and indeed all amateurs.

Noble has been using Bushnell devices as part of his coaching regime since 2011, seeing their use as an integral part of his player’s preparation ahead of tournament play:

“We always incorporate Bushnell laser rangefinders into our practice rounds, and tournament preparations, where we will visit the course prior to the event and use the devices to help map it out, with all the elevation changes detailed.”

Whilst the performance benefits of Bushnell devices in competitive rounds tend to be understood by amateurs, the positive effects that they have when used in practice are often overlooked by amateur golfers, a point confirmed by Noble:

“They are essential for all golfers, whether preparing for a home international or a monthly medal. Just knowing how far away from whatever element of the hole they are on, means that when it counts there is no guessing or arithmetic required!”

With its Exchange Technology, the Bushnell Tour X provides the perfect tool for practice, with Noble receiving positive feedback from all his players on the latest market leading Bushnell laser rangefinder, including leading Surrey County player, Simon Crockett:

“The Tour X, with its dual function is fantastic and it means I can have all the technology of a slope enabled laser for preparation, as well as a tournament conforming laser for when I am competing. It allows me to create and adjust yardage books for tournaments, ensuring any elevation changes are accurately recorded. In my opinion this is a tool that every serious golfer should have.”

Noble echoed the point: “The Tour X means that players only need to carry one device for both practicing and competing, the benefits of this familiarity can’t be ignored, as it is a game of such fine margins.”

As the #1 laser rangefinder on the PGA Tour for over ten years, Bushnell also continues to be the choice of amateurs at every level of the game looking to get the most out of their practice, to help them perform consistently at their highest level.
