GOLFBUDDY, a global leader in golf GPS rangefinders, has announced the appointment of renowned European Tour coach Denis Pugh as a brand ambassador.

Denis, currently coach to World Cup Champions Francesco and Edoardo Molinari and former coach of eight time European tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie, will be the face of GolfBuddy as it continues its successful European and global expansion with the launch of a new top-of-the-range product this summer.

The PGA Master Professional and Sky Sports presenter is one of the world’s most recognised and successful coaches and joins USA Master Professional Rick Smith – who has coached players including 2010 Masters champion Phil Mickelson – on the GolfBuddy team.

Said Denis: “I’m delighted to be working with GolfBuddy. I consider GolfBuddy GPS rangefinders a must-have accessory for any teaching professional because they provide such accurate distance measurement. Helping golfers to know how far they hit each club and to understand the importance of course management is made so much easier with the use of a GolfBuddy.

“GolfBuddy is great company with a fantastic new touch-screen model being launched this summer which promises to make GPS rangefinders an even more important part of any serious golfer’s equipment.”

No-one is better qualified to promote GolfBuddy as the essential game improvement aid than Denis. He has coached hundreds of European Tour professionals and his expertise is regularly showcased on Sky Sports ‘Golf Night’ show.

Announcing Denis’ appointment, GolfBuddy European general manager, John Ennis, said: “To have the endorsement of one of the world’s most successful golf coaches underlines just how highly-rated GolfBuddy’s GPS rangefinders are within the golf fraternity.

“Over the past 18 months we have grown the business considerably as increasing numbers of golfers turn to our products, which offer ‘fee-free’ GPS – there are no annual subscription charges or course download fees. Denis Pugh is a fantastic addition to the team. Using GolfBuddy GPS rangefinders is a definite way for golfers to improve their scores and we are delighted to have a coach of Denis’ stature on board to help get that message across.”

GolfBuddy currently has two models available across Europe – the GolfBuddy Tour and GolfBuddy Pro. These will be joined in July by the company’s most powerful rangefinder to date, a 40,000 course memory model featuring a touch screen.

GolfBuddy has rapidly become the leading golf GPS choice for Golf Professionals Shops across Europe.
