Darrell Survey Shows 99% of Players and 94% Caddies Use Bushnell
Overland Park, KS – Bushnell Golf has again proven itself as the preferred distance-measuring device on the PGA Tour. The Darrell Survey, golf industry’s leading independent and impartial arbiter of equipment use, reports 99 percent of the THE PLAYERS Championship field used a Bushnell laser rangefinder and 94 percent of all Tour caddies rely on Bushnell to obtain accurate yardages for their players. For well over a decade, Bushnell has become the overwhelming choice on the PGA Tour, while continuing to drive innovation for distance-measuring devices.
Led by the Tour X, Bushnell products were the clear favorite among THE PLAYERS Championship’s world-class field, and The Darrell Survey proved the world’s elite professional golfers trust Bushnell to obtain their yardages.
"Our goal is to provide world class DMD’s to world class Tour players, and the Darrell Survey yet again demonstrates Bushnell laser rangefinders are the most trusted brand on tour," said Derek Schuman, Marketing Manager at Bushnell Golf. "Bushnell is committed to developing new technologies and devices that will accommodate golfers of all skill levels.”
Designed to cater for the avid golfer, Bushnell introduced the Tour X. The Tour X features:
Exchange Technology gives the golfer a 2-in-1 device, conforms to USGA rule 14-3/.05 when the black faceplate is engaged. When users switch to the red faceplate, the TOUR X deploys its patented Slope Technology providing players with adjusted distance readings based on elevation changes.
Dual Display Technology (DDT) that allows users to easily toggle between the bright red display featuring Vivid Display Technology or the crisp black display
