BEAVERTON, Oregon — Leupold’s® new GX®-2i2 comes packed with advanced technology that enables golfers to easily customize the rangefinder to their individual needs and use it as a handy tool to improve scores and speed up pace of play. GX®-2i2 is now widely available from Leupold GX dealers and online retailers.
According to a recent United States Golf Association decision, tournament use of GX-2i2 is permitted under the Rules of Golf when a Local Rule is in effect (see USGA Decision 14-3/0.5) and the device is not used in True Golf Range™ (TGR®) mode. TGR allows golfers to compensate for uphill shots that play long and downhill shots that play short.

(Gord Montgomery/iG) — Last year, Callaway Golf released a new ball idea that many may find worth kicking around — and no, it’s not a soccer ball although it bears a striking resemblance to one.
But come to think of it, their new offering with Truvis technology does indeed look like something you’d use a foot wedge on. But, as it turns out, these red and white balls that look like mini-soccer balls are much easier to lay a club firmly upon, said Callaway sales rep Jim McCulley, while displaying the ball at the Edmonton Golf Show.
That ball is an offshoot of the Chrome Soft, being marketed as The Ball That Changed The Ball, and comes in a standard 65 compression. As such, it is much more workable than its higher compression counterparts from past days.
