OVERLAND PARK, Kansas — Continually bringing innovation to golf distance measuring devices, Bushnell announced the launch of its new Phantom GPS Rangefinder, rounding out a robust collection of products to serve golfers of all levels.
The Phantom comes preloaded with more than 36,000 courses and provides simple measurements to the front, center and back distances of the green - along with up to four hazard/layup distances per hole. The Phantom unveils "Bite Technology." Equipped with a high powered magnet the Phantom can easily attach to a cart bar or any metal surface, providing quick and easy yardage readings. Additional features include auto course and auto hole recognition, shot distance calculator and long battery life (play up to two rounds before charging).
"The addition of Bluetooth and Bite technologies push the Phantom a step above its predecessor the neo Ghost," said John DeCastro, Global Product Lane Director at Bushnell Golf. "Phantom provides golfers with the critical distance information they need, while offering the convenience and reliability they are accustomed to from Bushnell Golf GPS products."
Bushnell Golf's latest Golf GPS innovation also integrates Bluetooth technology. With the incorporation of Bluetooth technology and the Bushnell Golf Mobile application, the Phantom no longer needs to use a computer for course updates.
The Phantom is offered in four colors — Black, Red, Electric Blue, Neon Yellow — and will be available at retail in late-February for $99.99.
Bushnell Golf is a Vista Outdoor brand and the #1 electronic measuring device choice of golfers.
