Bushnell Golf further enhanced its position as the distance measuring device of choice for the world’s best golfers and caddies at the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. More than 99 per cent of players and more than 95 per cent of caddies using a laser rangefinder trusted a Bushnell device in preparing for the third Major Championship of the year.
Sports Marketing Surveys Inc. – regarded in Europe as the golf industry’s authority on equipment usage – conducted the study to determine the most widely used rangefinder at The Open Championship, taking findings from the practice days at Royal Birkdale last week. With the world’s top 50 golfers all teeing it up on the links in Merseyside, the survey results further prove the game’s elite put their trust in Bushnell rangefinders when preparing for competitive play.
The impressive figures follow the Darrell Survey conducted at the 2017 Players Championship in May, which reported a staggering 95 per cent of PGA Tour Players, using a laser rangefinder, used a Bushnell rangefinder.
“The results of this survey clearly illustrate Bushnell’s product superiority in the market and domination on Tour,” said Ghislain Mautin, Sales & Marketing Director at Bushnell EMEA. “The results of this year’s survey are better than last year, they do not come as a surprise to us, as each year the best players in the world rely on our commitment to innovation and excellence to help them prepare to face world-class competition each week, and the introduction of the new Pro X2 made a good impression on Tour earlier this year.”
