A new handheld GPS device for golfers has been launched by joint developers Golf Plus and the Australian firm Tee2Green Technologies.
The developers say SureShot allows golfers to measure distances from the tee to the front, centre and back of the green, together with up to fifteen hazards. The screen, which has a polarising filter, displays distances in either yards or metres. The device is capable of holding up to ten golf courses and can be used on any course worldwide, subject to local rules in accordance with the recent ruling provided by the USGA and the R&A.
Golf Plus's Andrew Walters said: "The synergies within the two companies made this joint enterprise a logical yet exciting development for all those involved. Our combined expertise in manufacturing, distribution and marketing will allow us to dominate the world market in GPS based golf products." Courses are available for downloading from the company website www.sureshotgps.com, or players can map courses themselves using the 'SureShot' GPS.
