Adjustability comes to range finders

By Ryan Herrington

To gather data regarding pace of play, the USGA added a local rule at its Women's State Team Championship in September allowing the use of range finders, a first for a USGA competition. Should the governing body's slow-play efforts cause it to relax restrictions on such devices in future events, Leupold Golf is ready with its latest offerings, the GX-3i2 ($500) and GX-4i2 ($625).

Both models uses laser technology to quickly compute distances. (Leupold officials boast that the speed and accuracy of measurements with its devices has made them popular for various military applications.)
