Two-Time World Long Drive Champion Endorses Game’s Only GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics System
Arccos Golf – maker of the game’s only GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics platform – announces the signing of two-time World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski, who in his role as a brand ambassador will showcase the company’s proprietary system during all golf activities and display its logo on his headwear.
Among the sport’s most popular athletes, Sadlowski has entertained millions worldwide with his showmanship, unique skills and prodigious tee shots. He was notably featured in a recent Dude Perfect video that became an Internet sensation. The 26-year-old Canadian, who also competes on the Web.com Tour and PGA Tour Canada, will share all of his shots, rounds and stats via the innovative Arccos Social function in the free iPhone app, participate in product development and be featured in Arccos marketing initiatives.
“There’s no better way than Arccos for me to gain insights into every aspect of my game,” says Sadlowski. “It’s helped me truly understand my strengths and weaknesses from tee the green, which is allowing me to take my overall game to an entirely new level.”
Requiring no alterations to pre-shot routines, additional devices, tapping or other hindrances to enjoyment and improvement, the Arccos system features a set of 14 virtually weightless sensors. Easily attached to the end of a club grip, each sensor is paired just once via Bluetooth to the iPhone app.
Along with GPS for more than 20,000 courses worldwide, Arccos captures critical data for your game, instantly delivering information on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. This helps golfers identify patterns and refine tactics before, during and after each round.
“Jamie boasts a combination of raw power and exceptional charisma that no one else on the planet can match,” says Arccos CEO Sal Syed. “Through our in-app social feed all Arccos users can follow all of Jamie’s shots and see the amazing stats he generates every time he tees it up.”
Widely heralded as one of the game’s most innovative and beneficial technologies, Arccos is also endorsed by 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel and is among the first golf-specific apps offered for Apple Watch.
Earlier this month, Arccos launched Advanced GPS capabilities, providing users with precise yardages to any location on a hole while simultaneously showing the distance from that spot to the green. Also part of this new touchscreen functionality is an automatic zoom capability that gives players a more detailed view of the hole as they get closer to the green.
Essential to the Arccos system, the Tour Analytics platform helps golfers identify patterns and refine tactics before, during and after each round. This was developed in conjunction with golf’s most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders. Drawing from his work with PGA Tour star Zach Johnson and many others, it automatically breaks down a players’ handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting – helping golfers:
- Gain insight into what every shot means
- Understand exactly how each part of their game contributes to scoring
- Explore comparative data in each of the five components from golfers with the same handicap
- Evaluate patterns across their entire golf history, supporting refinement of on-course tactics
Now available at Apple Stores, select golf retailers and pro shops nationwide, and www.arccosgolf.com, Arccos is trusted by top instructors who rely on the system to help their students recognize and correct faults, such as club distance gaps, noticeable shot dispersion patterns and other problem areas.
Led by a team of Ivy League engineers, rocket scientists, PhD’s and designers, Arccos Golf is named after a function of advanced mathematics.
