For another consecutive year, Bushnell Golf is definitively the preferred distance-measuring device on the PGA Tour. The Darrell Survey Company, the golf industry’s leading independent and impartial arbiter of equipment use, recently reported that 99.3 percent of the 2023 Players Championship field used a Bushnell laser rangefinder to obtain accurate yardages during competition.

In a survey of 144 players taken during the Players Championship, 143 of those players named Bushnell as their preferred distance-measuring device. Bushnell has claimed the top spot among PGA Tour players every year since measuring device usage recording began in 2006, and once again has been crowned the distance measuring device of choice for PGA Tour players participating in one of the most competitive events in golf.

Darren Bragg, Commercial Manager EMEA, at Bushnell Golf said: “Seeing the overwhelming trust in our brand and products is truly amazing, and it validates our position as the number 1 rangefinder in golf.”

“The results from the latest Darrell Survey at THE PLAYERS Championship 2023 confirms Bushnell laser rangefinders are conclusively the most trusted brand on the PGA Tour,” said Derek Schuman, Senior Brand Manager at Bushnell Golf. “The trust that professional golfers have in our devices speaks volumes to the amount of precision and care that goes into the development of each generation of rangefinder. We created the golf measuring device category more than 25 years ago and as we continue to innovate and develop new technologies; our focus will always remain on providing the best performing distance measuring devices for golfers.”

Building off the success of the previous generation of products, Bushnell Golf has continued to revolutionize golf laser rangefinders with the feature rich Pro X3. The Pro X3 has taken the world’s best-performing rangefinder and taken it to the next level, offering accuracy and performance unmatched by other laser rangefinders. The Pro X3 also features a new, patent-pending Locking Slope-Switch, significantly reducing the risk of accidently putting your unit into Slope mode during tournament play.

The Bushnell Pro X3, the most advanced and best performing laser rangefinder in the world, is the model preferred and used by PGA Tour players. In addition to its laser rangefinders, Bushnell Golf also offers GPS watches, GPS speakers and the Launch Pro personal launch monitor to help golfers at all skill levels perform better on the course.
