Plenty of courses are not well marked, and if you hit your drive into the rough, guessing how far your ball is from the green is pure guesswork. But the new Tour V2 range finder from Bushnell can make short work of determining yardages from anywhere, on any course. Compact and light enough to carry while walking, the Tour V2 uses Bushnell's "Pinseeker" technology, which reduces distortion and background images to more accurately determine distances. But this device isn’t just for measuring distance to the pin. It can also read distances to bunkers, mounds, the front edge of greens and more.
According to Bushnell, the Tour V2 is accurate to within a yard from up to 300 yards, and it’s legal for use in tournament play as well as in rounds you post toward your handicap if your local section allows rangefinders. -- David Dusek
