SkyGolf® Debuts The SkyCaddie® Breeze™ Rangefinder -- Simple, Affordable & Accurate
RIDGELAND, Miss., September 14, 2012...It's a breeze to use, and affordable too! SkyGolf, maker of the #1 rated and most reliable rangefinder in golf, introduces the SkyCaddie® Breeze™, the simplest rangefinder in golf. At the lowest ever price point, the SkyCaddie Breeze is an unbeatable value for golfers looking for a simple and affordable way to improve their game without compromising on quality and accuracy. The Breeze delivers a virtual sprinkler head; offering golfers front, middle and back of the green distances from anywhere on the course without touching a button or aiming. Most importantly, the Breeze provides the unmatched quality of a SkyCaddie in an easy-to-use device that performs more accurately than any others on the market.
The attractively priced Breeze comes preloaded and is hands-free from the parking lot to the 18th green. Front, center and back of green yardages are displayed in big, easy-to-read numbers on a large 3-inch, sunlight-readable display. Breeze features include: Auto Course (finds and loads a course automatically); Auto Hole Advance (advances to the next hole automatically); and Auto Distance (yardages update every second without aiming). Golfers can also measure any shot, knowing the exact distance they hit their clubs, while enjoying digital scoring at their choosing and much more. And with a simple turn of the wrist, golfers can view a jumbo screen with a huge number to the green or see their scorecard in landscape orientation.
"The new Breeze addresses the needs of a large segment of golfers who are looking for simplicity and accuracy at a price unmatched in the industry," according to SkyGolf CEO Richard Edmonson. "Even more exciting is the Breeze is also upgradable to provide many other game saving course features and applications that help golfers play even better as their needs and their games grow. This will enable Breeze owners to customize their SkyCaddie to meet their unique needs as golfers without buying a new device or buy features they would not use." Breeze owners seeking more advanced stroke-saving features such as HoleVue, IntelliGreen, RangeVue and PinPoint can do so with a series of optional upgrade packs and membership choices.
Suggested retail price of the new SkyCaddie Breeze is only $229.95, and it is offered with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Until December 31, 2012, consumers purchasing the Breeze will receive $250 in Hotel Savings Bucks, which may be used to enjoy savings of up to 40% off the guaranteed lowest rate available at over 15,000 hotel properties worldwide, including 20 great hotel brands. In addition, members also earn SkyRewards® Points and other discounts to save golfers more than three times the cost of nominally priced memberships starting as low as $19.95 per year. Golfers can reduce the price of a Breeze even more by taking advantage of the SkyGolf Trade-In program.

SkyGolf® is a private company specializing in the development of innovative positioning systems and technology products specifically designed to help golfers shoot lower scores and have more fun. SkyGolf is leading a revolution for improving the way golfers play the game by providing accurate course information to golfers and PGA Professionals worldwide. The mission of SkyGolf is to respect the long-standing traditions of the game, use technology responsibly within the spirit and rules of golf and to provide golfers of all skill levels with rewarding golf experiences with accurate and reliable products.
SkyGolf is the maker of SkyCaddie®, the #1 rated rangefinder in golf. It was born from the belief that every amateur deserves the same reliable and precise information a professional caddie provides to PGA TOUR professionals. SkyCaddie is the closest thing to a TOUR caddie's actual yardage book. It uses information gathered from professional mappers who walk every course and record critical target information with sub-meter precision.
Through this ground mapping methodology, SkyGolf mappers have trekked over a million miles recording approximately 100 million accurate data points on close to 30,000 golf courses worldwide, while annually updating thousands of courses. These unmatched efforts have proven to distance SkyCaddie from all competitors. Golf Datatech, the industry's leading independent research firm, conducted a survey polling golfers about their opinions of lasers, dedicated GPS devices and smartphone apps. It revealed that more serious golfers trusted SkyCaddie than all other rangefinders combined and that 94% of these golfers believed "exact yardage" is important to their game. SkyCaddie was rated more accurate than lasers by a margin of 3-to-2 and more accurate than other GPS devices by ratios ranging from 8-to-1 and 23-to-1.
Today, SkyCaddie is the Official Rangefinder of The PGA of America, Canadian PGA, PGA of Great Britain and Ireland, the PGA of New Zealand, PGA of Germany, the PGA of Spain and the Swedish PGA. As part of SkyGolf's mission to provide golfers with a more rewarding experience, the company created ClubSG to complement SkyCaddie. ClubSG is a passionate online community where SkyCaddie members, as well as all golfers, can go to connect to their game, courses, equipment, Golf Professionals and each other. It is golf's fastest growing online community, with hundreds of thousands of passionate golfers eager to enjoy better experiences on and off the course, motivate each other to improve, celebrate their successes, and attract new players to the game.
Further adding to SkyGolf's mission to help make golfers better, the Company developed Swing Labs®, the industry's first unbiased, performance-based fitting solution designed for fitters by fitters. Its purpose is to provide more distance and enhanced distance control for golfers while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the fitting process. Swing Labs is the only fitting solution to include actual performance data from all major club manufacturers based upon testing by Golf Laboratories, the industry's leading independent testing facility.
