Of course, it’s all well and good to hit a great ball with a new driver and see its lovely flight. But once you get all that long way down the fairway, you have to figure out what to do next.
There are a lot of range finders and GPS systems out there – TecTecTec VPro, Nikon Coolshot, Garmin, Izzo, and GolfBuddy. This will be like gifting your golfer a personal caddy. And like caddies, some are better than others.
The Bushnell ProX2 clearly measures the distance from obstacles ahead– within a half yard. The readings are displayed in black or red, depending on the light. The ProX2 vibrates with a small jolt when the laser locks in on the pin. And the Slope-Switch Technology, with the flip of a switch, calculates the distance, while also taking elevation change into account.
On the gift card, you might mention that one bonus is that the player doesn’t have to leave a tip. www.bushnellgolf.com.
