Arccos Golf today announced that Arccos Caddie Smart Grips, the world’s first set of grips featuring seamlessly embedded Arccos Smart Sensors, are available for purchase after a successful pre-sale. Featuring a sensor built directly into each grip, Arccos Smart Grips are the next development in the company’s mission to connect every shot in golf and help users lower their scores by making smarter decisions through data and Artificial Intelligence.
Arccos Smart Grips provide golfers with access to the award-winning Arccos Caddie system, golf’s first artificial intelligence platform that combines automatic data capture and advanced analytics to help all golfers improve faster and have more fun on the golf course. Arccos users lowered their handicap by an average of 3.55 strokes in 2017, representing a remarkable 46x greater rate of improvement than the average golfer with a USGA handicap.
Powered by Microsoft Azure, Arccos Caddie leverages a data set of 100 million+ shots hit during 1.6 million rounds played by the Arccos community and 418 million mapping data points on 40,000+ courses to provide optimal on-course strategies. Based on the dramatic improvement of Arccos users and the success of golf’s first A.I. platform, Fast Company named Arccos one of the “World’s Most Innovative Companies 2018.”
“We’re paving the way for the entire golf industry to become more efficient and effective through the power of big data and Artificial Intelligence, and that process begins with seamless and automatic shot tracking. It doesn’t get more seamless than having our sensors embedded directly into the grip,” says Sal Syed, Arccos CEO and Co-Founder. “Our goal is to connect every shot in golf, and Arccos Smart Grips are now the simplest way for golfers to do so.”
Alongside Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors – the award-winning platform featuring 14 screw-in sensors – golfers now have a second option to choose how they would like to connect their game. Arccos Smart Grips feature Lamkin Crossline 360 grips, require no special installation and provide an all-in-one option for hands free, fully-automatic shot tracking.
Each purchase includes 13 Arccos Smart Grips, one Arccos Putter Sensor and a 30-day free trial to all Arccos features, followed by a $99 annual subscription. Arccos Smart Grips have a MSRP of $149.99.
Winner of the Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Award for “Best Game Analyzer” three years in a row, the Arccos platform combines automatic data capture and advanced analytics to help golfers of all skill levels make smarter decisions and shoot lower scores.
