“At Cobra Golf, we believe that using advanced analytics to make smarter, data-driven decisions on the course can dramatically improve the performance of any player. That’s clearly supported by Arccos 360 users improving by up to five strokes after using the Arccos system for one year,” said Mike Yagley, Senior Director of Innovation/AI for Cobra Golf.

“By delivering the first-ever fully connected set, we’re helping more players make better informed decisions about their practice time and on-course club selections, so they can stand over each shot with more confidence, play better golf and shoot lower scores.”

Golfers that purchase a seven-piece set of F8 irons will be provided with enough sensors to put into their entire set

Arccos Caddie

Cobra Connect users will also be able to utilise a five-round preview of Arccos caddie. Developed in partnership with Microsoft, this system allows golfers to view their optimal strategy on each hole by analysing every shot they’ve ever taken, plus the 120+ million shots from the Arccos community.

Arccos Caddie also takes into account wind speed, wind direction, precipitation and more weather factors.

“This is a seminal moment in golf. For 500 years, the golf club has been comprised of three

elements: the head, the shaft and the grip. Our work with Cobra is changing that forever,” said Sal Syed, CEO and Co-Founder of Arccos.

“This is the first time that a fourth component – an Arccos sensor – is coming standard with the club. We believe that through our groundbreaking partnerships with Cobra and Microsoft, golf is now formally entering the data age.”
