Bushnell lasers dominate PGA Tour

1.28pm 26th March 2021 - New Products

Bushnell has been the preferred brand of distance-measuring device on the PGA Tour for the last 15 years, and its popularity among tour players was underlined still further at this month’s Players Championship, where over 98% of the field used a Bushnell laser to obtain their yardages.

The Darrell Survey Company, the golf industry’s leading independent and impartial arbiter of equipment use, reported that all but four players in the 154-strong field for the 2021 Players Championship used a Bushnell device.

Bushnell’s Pro XE is the overwhelming favourite laser among PGA Tour players

Bushnell’s Pro XE has revolutionised the golf laser rangefinder market, with the latest technology including ‘Slope with Elements’, which accounts for incline/decline, barometric pressure and temperature to provide golfers and caddies the most precise compensated distances needed to execute precise shots and capture victories. The recent PGA of America decision to allow laser rangefinders in their upcoming majors will ensure players and caddies have the most accurate yardages.

Andrew Grose, Managing Director of YUMAX Golf, which distributes Bushnell Golf products in Europe and the UK, said: “At Bushnell we strive to be the best, providing cutting edge technology and the most accurate distance measuring devices on tour. The Darrell Survey confirms Bushnell laser rangefinders are the most trusted brand on the PGA Tour.

“We are excited about the PGA of America’s decision because it will further show the benefits of using a laser rangefinder and will heighten awareness with players at the highest levels using our product during competitive tournament rounds.”

In addition to the Pro XE, Bushnell has a wide range of DMD’s that will provide the most accurate yardage readings for all golfers, including the Tour V5, Tour V5 Shift and Hybrid lasers, along with the ION2 GPS watch, and the Phantom handheld unit and the Wingman GPS speaker.
