STAMFORD, Conn., March 5, 2024 Arccos the leader in connected A.I. golf products and the Official Game Tracker of the PGA TOUR today announced an exclusive partnership that will see Edoardo Molinari, a DP World Tour player and Analytics advisor for more than 35 top professionals including Matthew Fitzpatrick (U.S. Open champion), Viktor Hovland (FedExCup champion), Nelly Korda (Women’s PGA Championship winner) and the European Ryder Cup Team, become Arccos’ Chief Data Strategist & Lead Tour Ambassador to help expand the game’s most powerful and intuitive analytics platform.

In his new role, Molinari will become an investor in Arccos and his StatisticGolf service will be renamed Arccos Pro Insights as he continues working with top-ranked players worldwide. Molinari will also leverage the Arccos system which was recently approved for use on the PGA TOUR to seamlessly capture his personal shot data during competitions and practice rounds. He will showcase the Arccos logo on his apparel, promoting the company’s mission to empower golfers at every level with data- driven insights.

“I’m very impressed with the Arccos game tracking system as it is delivering tremendous benefits to so many players around the world,” said Molinari. “It’s the perfect complement to the platform I’ve built for the game’s most elite pros. Joining forces with Sal Syed and his team of amazing data scientists, analysts, engineers and designers, will make an immediate impact. I know we’re poised to pioneer groundbreaking advancements in analytics, helping every golfer become smarter about practice, preparation, and on-course decision-making.”

Recently named European Ryder Cup Team Vice Captain for the second time, Molinari has frequently been called a “stats genius” by tour stars and golf media. As a player, Molinari won the 2005 U.S. Amateur Championship, claimed three DP World Tour titles, was on the winning 2010 Ryder Cup team and reached #14 on the Official World Golf Ranking.

A graduate of a five-year engineering program at the Polytechnic University of Turin, the 42-year-old Italian began recording and analysing his own stats in 2003. During golf’s COVID-19 hiatus, Molinari conceived and launched StatisticGolf, which quickly became the most used and trusted analytics platform on professional tours. In 3 years, his clients have captured 27 worldwide wins including: US Open, Ryder Cup, FedExCup, and DP World Tour Championship.

“The sophistication of what Edoardo has built surpasses anything that I’ve seen in the field of golf analytics,” said Sal Syed, Arccos CEO & Co-Founder. “Edoardo is not only brilliant with data, he has the perspective that comes from being one of the world’s best players. That combination is totally unique and a big reason why major champions and Ryder Cup winners give so much credit to his work. By pairing Edoardo’s approach with what we’ve built at Arccos, we’ll redefine analytics, to perfectly address the needs of pro golfers, as well as elite amateurs, junior golfers and recreational players.”

Golf’s #1 game tracker, Arccos has built the game’s largest on-course dataset. Today that includes almost 900 million shots and over 1.5 trillion data points recorded during 18 million rounds by Arccos members. The system, which consists of a lightweight smart sensor in each club grip that pairs with a mobile app, has long been trusted by amateurs and elite players worldwide.

Arccos recently launched Link Pro, a revolutionary device that tracks a player’s shots automatically without a phone and works inside a player’s front pocket to seamlessly capture on-course data. Ideal for use in professional competitions, Link Pro is the size of a car key fob and comes standard with a wireless charging case that provides up to 12 rounds on a single charge.

Late last year, Arccos announced a strategic fundraising round featuring several of golf’s biggest brands and most impactful businesses, headlined by the PGA TOUR alongside PING, Inc., TaylorMade Golf Company, Cobra PUMA Golf and Topgolf Callaway Brands Corp. (NYSE: MODG), among others. The company’s focus: fully leverage and accelerate the growth of the game’s largest data set to help the entire golf ecosystem by allowing players, coaches, club fitters and product designers make smarter decisions that are based on real performance data.
