Pro Tip: Upgrade Your Golf Tech Game

Pro Tip Upgrade Your Golf Tech Game

The middle of June marks Old Tom Morris’ 200th birthday. While a lot has changed from the time Old Tom and his fabulous efforts in golf-course design in Europe, the objective of this grand old game has remained the same: get a ball into a ball in the fewest number of strokes possible.

Old Tom wouldn’t know what to do with the golf technology of today. But luckily for Canadian golfers the best golf rangefinders, best golf GPS watches, and the best in golf tech are available to help us do the exact same thing as Old Tom two centuries ago – just get the ball in the hole faster.

Sure, getting fit for golf clubs (and the golf tech that’s involved with new fitting processes these days) is super important, rangefinders or GPS watches can help golfers dial in their distances and shoot lower scores, too. Simple upgrades to your tech can help not only to lower your score but also add value to every round of golf you play.

Without having to look around for a sprinkler or try to step off yardages (and of course, you don’t have the luxury of a professional caddie with you most likely) a quick click of a rangefinder from Bushnell or a GPS watch from Garmin can give you precisely calculated distances.

So now you’re saving time, and strokes – what’s not to love about what new golf tech offers?

The Bushnell Tour V5 Shift rangefinder, for example, features PinSeeker technology (which helps to isolate the target and shut out any hazards and calculate an object within plus or minus 1 yard), plus BITE magnetic mount – making it easy to connect to a cart – and visual JOLT. Not to mention next level brightness and clarity, plus this golf rangefinder with slope compensation will totally change your game.

One of the coolest pieces of golf technology that also doubles as a speaker is also from Bushnell. The Wingman GPS portable speaker also boasts the BITE magnetic mount and is chalk full of cool golf tech. Bushnell makes some of the best golf rangefinders in the game, but this speaker’s got more than 36,000 courses preloaded on it plus more than 10 hours of battery life. It’s a Bushnell golf rangefinder and speaker all in one and boasts a detachable remote to mark your location and find an exact, audible location to the green. Connect the speaker to the Bushnell app and stream music on the course, too.

If you’d rather have a more traditional golf GPS watch then has plenty from Garmin. Garmin GPS golf watches are equal parts stylish and full of golf technology. The Garmin Approach S40, for example, has a colour touch screen and shows distances to back, middle, and front of each green plus hazards to upwards of 41,000 courses worldwide. The built-in benefits aren’t just for golf tech, as this golf GPS watch helps with tracking steps and sleep.

So, while Old Tom Morris might have had a hand in inventing the modern game of golf, you can, thanks to some the best golf technology, have a big-time opportunity to improve and enjoy it even more.
