Golf technology, like the rest of the digital world, is continuously evolving. And Bushnell’s Wingman is designed to meet the diverse requirements of today’s golfer.
More golfers are deciding to enhance their game with music. Bushnell merged its main business of measuring distance with high-quality audio with the Wingman.

The Pro XE is fully waterproof and accurate to one yard. It is capable of measuring 500 yards or more to a hole. It also has a revolutionary bit of technology which locks onto flags and signals to the user when the target has been captured. To make the rangefinder tournament legal, Bushnell’s BITE technology allows the Pro XE to be switched on and off with a switch.

Every golfer strives to improve their game. The PRGR launch monitor enables them to do so without spending a fortune and from anywhere.
The gadget measures clubhead speed without requiring a ball to be hit. It utilizes its database of swings to provide accurate forecasts, while players can also evaluate the impact of actually striking a golf and the pressure of a result on their swing.
