The Leupold GX-II is the best on the market
Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
With the final major of the year now history, Leupold's® GX-II® laser rangefinder remains atop the leader board on the PGA TOUR, with a clear majority of caddies committed to using it in all 2009 events.
The latest scorecard lists 158 caddies who have agreed to use the GX-II in all 2009 PGA TOUR events. There are 200-275 caddies on the TOUR, according to recent estimates.
Earlier this year, the Professional Tour Caddies of America (PTCA) endorsed the GX as its official golf rangefinder. PGA TOUR players such as Boo Weekley endorse it as well.
"The Leupold GX-II is the best on the market," Weekley said.
While some PGA TOUR players may use a rangefinder during practice rounds, giving accurate distances is a critical aspect of the caddies' job. They rely on precise rangefinders such as GX-II for pre-tournament course mapping and during practice rounds.
"Our GX-II rangefinder has become number one on the PGA TOUR because of its accuracy, especially as compared to GPS-style rangefinders," said Andy York, Leupold's vice president of sales and marketing. "In using GX-II to thoroughly scout and measure a course, the players and their caddies can gain an edge that could make all the difference."
The advanced GX-II and the tournament-legal GX-I models feature Leupold's exclusive PinHunter™ Laser Technology for fast, precise distance measurement. The GX-II also offers True Golf Range (TGR®) and Club Selector features which work together to give golfers a personalized distance for the shot, and help them choose the right club based on their personal club distance input.
Packed with smart technology, Leupold's GX-II rangefinder is the first to provide accurate ranging information matched to the slope of the shot, atmospheric conditions and a golfer's specific striking distance.
Both GX models have 6x magnification and can accurately measure distances up to 750 yards/675 meters. They also feature a scan mode that allows users to sweep the landscape while continuously measuring distance. Each model is weatherproof, weighs 6.8 ounces and measures 4 x 2.75 x 1.5 inches.
