Founding Story

Meet Sal Syed, the CEO of Arccos Golf who is working to produce an innovative product out of a combined love of golf and passion for technology.

While Sal was earning his MBA at the Yale University School of Management, he met co-founder Clinton Grusd, who worked to develop the foundation of the business, and the business and product concepts, plans and strategies that are used by Arccos. Sal also joined forces with his childhood friend, Ammad Faisal.

These co-founders realized that golf was lacking a high-performing, comprehensive tool to track and analyze a golfer's game and improve decision-making on the course. They set out to change the way we think about golf and play golf.

With the help of some brilliant PhDs, engineers, designers and PGA Professionals, they have launched a product that is taking the golf world by storm: Arccos.
