Earlier this year, Bushnell launched a new rangefinder to satisfy the ever-changing expectations of Golf Pros with the Tour X. The TOUR X has been engineered with Exchange Technology. Using two interchangeable faceplates, Exchange Technology gives the golfer a 2-in-1 device. The TOUR X conforms to USGA rule 14-3/.05 when the black faceplate is engaged. When users switch to the red faceplate, the TOUR X deploys Slope Technology providing players with adjusted distance readings based on elevation changes and its incredible ranging capabilities, Vivid Display Technology for all lighting conditions and unprecedented accuracy. The Tour X is also equipped with the Dual Display Technology, which allow the user to easily toggle from the bright red vivid display or sharp black display based on lighting conditions or personal use.

 ABOUT THE SOLHEIM CUP

The Solheim Cup combines the tradition and prestige of the game of golf with passion for one’s country. This biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition features the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET) and the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA).

The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten Solheim, the founder of Karsten Manufacturing Corporation, which makes PING golf equipment. In 1990, the Solheim family, in conjunction with the LPGA and the LET, developed the concept and became the title sponsor for The Solheim Cup, professional golf’s international match-play competition for women. Held every two years, the event has grown into the most prestigious international women’s professional golf team event. The Solheim Cup is the most highly coveted trophy in women’s profes­sional golf team competition; some of the most memorable moments in the sport have happened during Solheim Cups, and berths on the European and U.S. teams are highly sought after by players from both organizations.

The 2015 Solheim Cup will take place Sept. 18-20 at St Leon-Rot Golf Club, Germany. The European Team enters the competition holding the Cup and will need 14 points to retain it, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. squad holds an 8-5 lead in the series, which began in 1990, and is undefeated (6-0) on U.S. soil.
