Bushnell Tour V5 Rangefinder Review: Should they be allowed on the PGA TOUR?

The competitors at the PGA Championship have been allowed to use distance measuring devices at Kiawah Island this week. 

99% of players on the PGA Tour use Bushnell, which is a testament to the quality of their products and the longevity of the company in maintaining their high standards.

The Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Rangefinder is one of the most popular products that the company has produced in recent years and although they are towards the expensive side, it will guarantee pinpoint yardages and an easy-to-use device.

Alex from GolfMagic took the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Rangefinder on to the course at Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate to try it out.

The Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Rangefinder has a slope feature that can be measured in both yards and metres. You can use the scope to find flags up to 400 yards away and trees for up to 700 yards away.

A great part of Bushnell products is their longevity and how they maintain their compatibility after a number of years. They are reliable and can become a long-lasting feature in your golf bag.

It was announced earlier this year that distance measuring devices would be allowed to be used on the competition days at the PGA Championship, which was a significant landmark for companies such as Bushnell.

The new allowance unearthed a debate amongst golf fans and experts as to whether the use of rangefinders would speed up or decrease the pace of play. 

Nonetheless, the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Rangefinder is a premium product and although it will cost you £359, it is a durable and high-quality product and its frequent use on the PGA Tour shows this.
