Callaway Golf Company recently unveiled a new line of GPS and Laser Rangefinders at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
Callaway introduced the GPSync watch, the ECLIPSE GPS and the 300 Laser Rangefinder.
Each of the three devices is equipped with a feature that sets them apart in the distance-measuring devices category. The 300 Laser Rangefinder has a built in P.A.T. (Pin Acquisition Technology) mode, which allows golfers to accurately grab the flag from up to 300 yards away. The GPSync and ECLIPSE both display yardages to the front and back of hazards (doglegs, bunkers, water) giving the golfer enough information to layup or go for it.
“Overall the response was tremendous! The media, industry, buyers, and PGA pros were very impressed with our new, innovative GPS and Laser devices,” said David Witkoski, Vice President Marketing and Product Development for IZZO Golf, an official licensee for Callaway. “We look forward to establishing Callaway as a significant player, within this category, for years to come.”
