Two-Time World Long Drive Champion to Promote Arccos Driver Performance Tracking & Live Competition System

(STAMFORD, CT) – Arccos Golf – maker of the game’s only GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics platform – announces the extension of its endorsement agreement with two-time World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski.

In his ongoing role as an Arccos brand ambassador, Sadlowski will be prominently featured in marketing of the Arccos Driver performance tracking and live competition system that launches April 2. As part of this agreement, the 27-year-old Canadian will continue to showcase Arccos’ proprietary system during all golf activities and display the company logo on his headwear.

Geared toward every golfer that revels in crushing the ball, battling friends and reliving the glory of their longest shots, Arccos Driver includes the first-ever handicap system for driving. This allows players of all skill levels to compete in a new game, called Crowns. It awards points, in the form of Arccos Yards, for driving distance and accuracy, and bonuses for meeting personalized challenges issued at the start of each round.

“Shot tracking with Arccos Driver is awesome, but my favorite feature is definitely the Crowns game,” says Sadlowski. “The driving handicap system means I’m spotting my buddies a ton of Arccos Yards, but they love finally having a fighting chance to beat me head-to-head.”

Initially available at Apple Stores, DICK’S Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy locations, as well as, Arccos Driver will premiere this spring at major golf and electronics retailers nationwide. Delivering real-time data for tee shot distances, fairways hit and more, the single-sensor system automatically detects each drive. It then uses sensors found on all major smart phones to record second shot position without the need for tagging or other annoying disruptions.

Additional features of Arccos Driver (MSRP: $79.99) include:

  • Advanced GPS for 35,000+ courses worldwide
  • Distance & Accuracy Stats for every drive and round
  • Personalized Challenges based on performance history
  • Live Leaderboards for daily, weekly, monthly and customized competitions
  • Social Bragging via one-touch posting to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • Precise Shot Detection that distinguishes between real and practice shots

“Jamie has transcended the long drive space by using his magnetic personality and incredible athletic skill to become one of golf’s most popular figures,” says Arccos CEO Sal Syed. “He’s going to be a big part of our Arccos Driver launch and the timing couldn’t be better with the renewed energy around the World Long Drive Championship.”

To start using Arccos Driver, players simply attach the ultralight (less than 12g) sensor to the grip end of any driving club and pair it just once to a smartphone using the free Arccos Driver app for iOS or Android. The Arccos Driver sensor uses a standard watch battery (CR2032). This lasts up to 50 rounds, with charge level monitored via a battery indicator in the Arccos app.

Widely heralded as one of the game’s most innovative and beneficial technologies, the flagship Arccos Golf system launched in late 2014. Endorsed by PGA Tour star Billy Horschel, Arccos Golf automatically delivers info on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. Post-round, players and their instructors can gain valuable insights on overall performance via deep dives into statistics, past rounds, Tour Analytics and more.

Developed in conjunction with golf’s most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders, Tour Analytics draws 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

Led by a team of Ivy League engineers, rocket scientists, PhD’s and designers, Arccos Golf is named after a function of advanced mathematics.
