Renowned European Tour coach Denis Pugh has been appointed brand ambassador for Golf Buddy, one of the leaders in golf GPS rangefinders. The Wisley-based pro is coach to Italian World Cup winners Edoardo and Francesco Molinari and rates the product as a 'must-have' accessory in teaching as well as helping to gauge any golfers performance in a round.
A PGA 'Master Professional' and Sky Sports analyst, Pugh is one of the world's most recognised and successful coaches and joins US Master Professional Rick Smith on the GolfBuddy team.
Said Denis: "I'm delighted to be working with GolfBuddy. I consider GolfBuddy GPS rangefinders a must-have accessory for any teaching professional because they provide such accurate distance measurement.
"Helping golfers to know how far they hit each club and to understand the importance of course management is made so much easier with the use of a GolfBuddy which is an important part of any serious golfer's equipment."
Announcing the appointment, GolfBuddy European general manager, John Ennis, said: "Over the past 18 months we have grown the business considerably as increasing numbers of golfers turn to our products, which offer 'fee-free' GPS course downloads, which means there are no annual subscription charges or download fees."
GolfBuddy currently has two models available across Europe - the GolfBuddy Tour and GolfBuddy Pro, which will be joined in July by the company's most powerful rangefinder to date, a 40,000 course memory model featuring a touch screen.
