The 2013 Tour Z6 Wingman Pack is Bushnell's newest golf laser rangefinder. It's also the latest Bushnell product whose sales benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation.
"Building off the great success of the original Patriot Pack, we are ecstatic to provide consumers with this Tour Z6 Wingman Pack and are pleased to add another product to the mix that will support Major Rooney's incredible foundation," said Phil Gyori, managing director for North America. "For as long as consumers continue to look for ways to support the Folds of Honor Foundation and gravitate to Bushnell's industry-leading products, we'll be privileged to be a partner and support the foundation."
Extra-small but extra-powerful, the Tour Z6 is Bushnell’s most technically advanced rangefinder, which allows golfers to instantaneously zero in on flags up to 450 yards away, with up to 18-inch accuracy. Featuring 6x magnification (objects appear 6 times closer) through a premium lens coatings for superb optical quality and adjustable diopter setting, the Tour Z6 includes Vivid Display Technology (VDT) for clear sighting in all lighting conditions.
The Tour Z6 comes with a two-year warranty. And long with the rangefinder itself, the Wingman Pack includes a limited-edition Bushnell Golf/FHF embroidered microfiber golf towel, premium carrying case and battery for a suggested retail price of $399.
Earlier this year, Bushnell unveiled two new Patriot Packs featuring the Tour v3 and Tour v3 Slope rangefinders. The all-new Patriot Packs come equipped with a Tour v3 or Tour v3 Slope, Bushnell and FHF bag tag, protective carrying case and exclusive Bushnell Golf and FHF-branded golf tees with a suggested retail price of $299 (Tour v3) and $399 (Tour v3 Slope).
Founded by Maj. Dan Rooney in 2007, the Folds of Honor Foundation provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members disabled or killed during U.S. military service. Rooney, a former F-16 pilot who served three tours in Iraq, founded Folds of Honor Foundation to ensure that families of fallen service men and women are never left behind.
In addition to the contribution, Bushnell has partnered with country music star Craig Morgan on a donation download program benefitting the Folds of Honor. A 10-year veteran of the U.S. Army, Morgan wrote and dedicated a song titled "What Matters Most" to the heroes Folds of Honor Foundation supports. The track, a tribute to the millions of service men and women who defend America's freedom, parallels the stories of so many who have lost loved ones on the field of battle. For each download of "What Matters Most," Bushnell will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to the Folds of Honor.
I had a great few weeks down at Spring Training and now able to think more about golfers. But in truth, regardless of the sport, in order for athletes to excel - flexibility is paramount. The ability to stretch properly can add strength and improve performance in the ballpark and on the golf course (and other sports too of course).
Okay guys (and girls) - there you have it. Right from the expert, just apply it to your pre-round routine. Gonna give it a try? If you do, let me know how it works out for you. Tweet me on twitter at @johnkim_10 and let me know how your golf game is coming along.
Derek Ernst doesn't fault people for not knowing who he was before he won the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday. After all, the PGA Tour rookie was ranked No. 1,207 in the world.
He's a lot more famous in the world of golf now. But as he found out on Tuesday, not everyone knows who he is just yet – including the person who made up the locker assignment sheet at The Players Championship.
After arriving at TPC Sawgrass and seeing that ''David'' Ernst had been assigned a locker, he tweeted: ''I guess I have to win another for people to know my name. Haha.''
Oh well, Derek. At least they got your name right on the winner's check in Charlotte.
Tiger Woods spent a good part of Tuesday at TPC Sawgrass, putting the final touches on his game ahead of The Players Championship.
On Monday night, of course, he and girlfriend Lindsey Vonn were in New York City, where they attended the Met Ball – a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art that is widely considered among the Big Apple’s biggest social events of the year.
So why did Tiger, who has demanded so much privacy off the golf course, attend such a high-profile event?
''Lindsey wanted to try and grow her brand. She's come out with a new perfume and makeup line, so that was a big thing for her and I'm supporting it,'' he told the Associated Press on Tuesday. ''As you know, I'm not really big into fashion stuff. The theme was pretty interesting, because obviously I remember some of that stuff when I was a kid. But I certainly didn't wear that stuff.''
Are more red carpets on the horizon?
''We'll see,'' Woods said. ''Maybe I can just go in jeans and a T-shirt or something.''
