Golf, as every golfer knows, is a sport which requires a great deal of mental preparation, pin point accuracy, and precision around the golf course. These are the requirements that every golfer needs to excel at the game.
So if something comes along that will alleviate some of these problems for you and in-turn enhance your game then obviously you must consider it. That is where the golf rangefinder will come into the equation because it not only removes the yardage guessing game every golfer goes through when on the course but it will go a long way in helping you to reduce your handicap. By having a golf rangefinder as part of your golfing arsenal you will enjoy the best shot available to you irrespective of where you are on the course.
Golf range finders are intended to enhance your golf game simply by providing highly accurate yardage readings to physical objects around the golf course. The rangefinder emits a laser beam that will focus on an object and then the range finder appraises the distance in the time it will take for the laser beam to bounce back from the subject and return to the rangefinder. Basically what the golf rangefinder allows a golfer to do is accurately snipe their way to the hole.
The golf rangefinder presents the distance instantly and far quicker than if you use a GPS unit. The rangefinder uses a laser beam and the latest digital technology to measure out the yardage to any object. Many rangefinders also provide you spot-on distance even if the target is blocked by any debris (leaves) or any other hazard present on the golf courses.
Golf rangefinders are a necessary accessory for almost any serious golfer. A few of the improved rangefinders that are available will give you 1 yard exactness for approximately 1500 yards distance. There are a number of the new rangefinders that are almost as small as a new golf ball. They are also very easy to use and due to their small size you can keep them in your trouser pocket.
To make the decision on which is the best golf rangefinder for you, then you should consider your own playing level, whether you play regularly in tournaments or you just take the game as a leisurely pastime. Also you must compare the characteristics of all the available golf range finders and buy the best golf rangefinder that fits your playing level and of course the amount of money you can afford to spend.
Some of the golf rangefinders that are recommend are the Bushnell Medalist, the Bushnell Tour v2. The Leupold’s gx-1 and gx-2 models and the SkyCaddie SG5 GPS come highly recommended.
If your pocket can afford it then the Bushnell 1500 Pinseeker with its integrated slope measurement technology is a really good rangefinder. And if you and your playing partners can come to terms with the USGA rule infraction, I advise you to get your hands on this beauty; especially if you like to visit a lot of different courses for the first time.
I can honestly say that I have improved my golf game since I purchase my Bushnell Pinseeker rangefinder. Not only did it help to shave strokes off my handicap but it made me the envy of my playing partners. In fact they started to rely on me to lend it to them so they could try to stop me winning all the time.
If you are serious about your golf game like I am then you should consider investing in a golf rangefinder. You will never regret making the decision; in fact you will wonder why you did not do it sooner!
