Nikon has announced Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter as a Global Ambassador for its Coolshot and Coolshot AS laser rangefinders.

Poulter and his caddy Terry Mundy have signed a multi-year deal to use Nikon rangefinders during tournament preparations, both on and off the course, until 2015.

As part of the arrangement, Mundy will also feature the Nikon logo on his headwear.

"I've always made sure that everything I do in my preparations for any golf tournament is of the highest standard, and that mentality goes into any products that I use," said Poulter.

"When Ryder Cup points and major championships are on the line, I need to be able to trust the numbers that my laser gives me.

"Nikon's laser rangefinders are the best around and you won't get a more accurate reading with any other laser."

Tim Hunnable, Commercial Manager Nikon UK Sport Optics, said: "We are delighted to have Ian Poulter join the Nikon team as an ambassador.

"The passion he displays on the course and his ability perfectly complements the passion we put into our products, and the quality results that passion yields."
