Update: 

 

This is really interesting !  Start up the pod cast, listen and you can still browse the forum.  Sell the oriental guy irons for $1600.00 and disregard the colored person...  His first job in golf was a wake up call.  I can see how Adam really wanted to take a then slimy industry and make a difference.    Good stuff!

Yea it's the best of the golf info world.  Listen to the pod and cruise MGS!

 

I just learned that robots are not finicky concerning black or shiney putter shafts. But, people can identify and that is why people are better suited for testing purposes...

Marketing is huge!  ;)

 

Non conforming clubs may or may not have a future pending OEM  interest....  ;)

 

Don't spend another penny if you're not sure a new product is better  :)

It would be interesting to see what would happen if they were to open up non conforming clubs for amateurs, wonder what the game would look like.

Yea for instance bring back belly and titty putters for the ams.  I'm sure there are many old dudes who are still using them and don't give a rats arse who cares however I'm talking about tournament  playing amateurs.  IMO it's fair for everyone if everyone has the freedom to use em. 

 

Make the game more fun and easier for those who are not blessed with the silver spoon of talent.  Trust me, it's still going to be a hard frigging game no matter how tricked up the equipment could possibly become. 

 

The last few minutes of this pod cast shines an interesting light.   ;)

Interesting comment at the end about how our reviews are 2500 words and people don't want to read that. Makes me think that if I'm picked for another review that I need to cut WAY back... True?

People generally want immediate gratification.  They don;t want to read a review or put in effort,  they want the answer right up front.

Hey everyone thanks for listening and providing your comments.  That was my first ever podcast interview and I pretty much cringed through the entire thing when I heard it afterward.  Ugh.  The combination of hearing your own voice and being your own worst critic is a deadly one.  We'll have a ton more podcast episodes coming soon and the guests are great.  Our next episodes are with Shaun Micheel and are absolutely amazing considering his story as a professional golfer.  Anyway, feel free to throw any other feedback or critiques on here.  Thanks again.

I think you just have to consider that there are tons of different audiences out there.  Some guys don't mind reading 1000+ word reviews because they're really interested in the equipment, technology, development process, testing, etc.  The large majority of people definitely just want to know what is better than what.  In a product testing thread I think people will definitely appreciate a more thorough review.

First, sorry you had to listen to me talk so long.

 

Now regarding the 2500 words thing.

 

Basically there are different demographics for golfers. There are also golfers who digest information differently.  

 

Think of the future like we will provide the quality of MyGolfSpy but in formats designed for ALL types of golfers with the goal to help solve every equipment problem they have ever had.

 

We want to have all the answers to all your questions and concerns. Then help you secure what you want for the best price and get you the most money out of whatever you no longer want to own.

I always felt like the 2500+ word member reviews were more for the MGS members than the average Joe searching for the best thing on the market. If Joe wants a down and dirty, professional opinion, he can start end with the Most Wanted test.

 

The forum reviews are community events where members can see their fellow commenters experience the testing process. None of us are professionals but it's an opportunity to get to better know your fellow members and peek behind the curtain of a regular guy getting the latest and greatest equipment.

 

 

If MGS can develop something in the middle (also), they'll be unstoppable muahaha

I don't think that's much of a problem for the folks on this site.

I appreciate the work that you guys put into a 2500 word review, but I understand that it's not the greatest for everyone. Especially on a small form-factor device.

Thanks for the reply! I've always wanted to be thorough in my reviews, first and foremost. In looking forward, it will be very cool to hopefully be a part of sharing info and data that changes the current methods, and is able to help others select equipment best suited for them.

I look forward to being a part, and watching it all! One day I'll be able to say, “You know, grandson, I was a small part of My Golf Spy back in-the-day...”

I really enjoyed listening to this, it is pretty cool to hear some of the history of how Mygolfspy got started and was very informative about the way testing is done. More content like this please!!!

Really appreciate it.  Most of our interviews so far have been with professional golfers...although today we did an interview with a golf journalist which provided some different conversation.  Hopefully we can provide more content on MGS, club testing and other similar topics in the future

      This is a must listen for any golfer.  The episode is the first part of our interview with Shaun Micheel.  Shaun is the winner of the 2003 PGA Championship and has nearly 400 PGA Tour starts.  He is currently playing on the Web.com Tour and will also transition to the Champions Tour next year.  This part of the conversation goes over his upbringing in Memphis, his college and early professional days, and his eventual PGA Championship victory at Oak Hill.  It's a great, honest talk about Shaun's wild and unique path to becoming a professional golfer and major champion.  Part two will be released next week.

      5 QUESTIONS WITH ARCCOS CEO SAL SYED
       

       
       
      Golf and tech is quickly becoming almost synonymous, with a bevy of products ranging from swing analyzers to GPS watches. The latest craze is instant game tracking technology and it excites me that this weeks 5-ish questions is a chance to pick the mind of Arccos CEO, Sal Syed.
       

       
       
      What is Arccos, and what kind of useful information can the average golfer glean from using Arccos?  How will it help their game improve?
       
      Arccos is the industry's most advanced performance tracking system.  It incorporates 14 sensors that easily attach to a player's club and pair with our free iPhone app. Once connected, golfers simply play as they normally would and Arccos automatically starts collecting data on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and much more. The app also provides GPS yardages for more than 20,000 courses.
       
      For the average golfer, this is the first time they will be able to see their game under a microscope and truly evaluate strengths and weaknesses based on incredibly accurate data. They can use the information provided by Arccos to practice the areas of their games that need improvement, leading to lower scores and more fun on the course.
       

       
       
      It seems everything and everyone can benefit from technology these days, can the average golfer truly understand and extract enough valuable information to improve their game?
       
      We're experiencing a time in world history when technology is truly benefiting everyone.  Technological innovation in a variety of industries has made everything more efficient. Our goal with Arccos is to make golfers more efficient.
       
      Currently, the average golfer doesn't really know how far they hit the ball. They think they do, but our research shows they are often way off. Conversely, PGA Tour players have the tools at their disposal to know exact yardages for each club and type of shot. Without question, knowing this information has a dramatically positive impact on a player's performance.
       
      Additionally, we use the Strokes Gained methodology to unlock a player's “Golf DNA.” We have been taught to measure our skill based on a handicap number, we're a  5, 10, etc. But that doesn't give the full picture. With Arccos we breakdown each player's handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting – assigning a handicap number to each.
       
      This breakdown is very important, because once a golfer understands where their weaknesses lie, they can practice that area and quantify results based on if they see an upswing in performance and lower total scores.  Additionally, by helping players understand strengths and weakness, they are far more likely to be motivated to practice and work on the area of their game that needs development.
       

       
       
      How do two guys from business management and financial backgrounds (Sal and Ammad) get into the golf technology business?
       
      Although I did graduate from Yale with an MBA, my background is working with tech start-ups. With Arccos I saw the opportunity to perfectly combine my two passions for golf and tech.
       
      Ammad and I grew up together and have been very good friends for a long time. We went to the same high school and have always been close, so it was a natural fit.
       
      I actually introduced Ammad to golf and now he is completely hooked! He is actually doing very well and currently plays to about a 12 handicap. Pretty impressive, considering he only recently took up the sport.
       

       
       
      We see many similar products on the market these days such as Game Golf which is almost half your price, why should we be buying Arccos?  What about non-rechargeable batteries adding costs? Do you have plans for a rechargeable version?
       
      Other products may be similar on the surface, but the difference between what Arccos provides compared to the competitors is quite substantial. When we developed Arccos, my philosophy was that people are out playing golf to enjoy themselves, not to collect data. Which is why it was imperative that that our system automatically collect information on the user, without his/her direct interaction. Players don't need to adjust their pre-shot routine or tap a third device in order to activate Arccos. Just go play golf.
       
      Of course if an Arccos user wanted to check their stats as they play, they can do that. Everything is recorded and displayed instantly. They also have the choice of waiting until after the round to dive into shot tracking numbers and analysis. The experience on the course is as interactive as you want it to be.
       
      We also offer GPS functionality, providing distances to the front middle and back of the green.  This eliminates the need for another device or app that serves that purpose.  
       
      When it comes to the batteries, using a non-rechargeable battery is actually the cheaper technological solution.  Our testing shows that the batteries used can last roughly 50 rounds, which is about two years for the average players. Beyond that, we're getting more and more efficient when it comes to battery life and should be able to increase battery life over time.  Even if they do need to be replaced, the batteries only cost a few dollars to replace and can be picked up at any drug store or electronics outlet.
       

       
       
      What do you say to the purists who insist technology should stay off the golf course?
       
      I would definitely consider myself a purist. I've been in love with the game for the past 20 years and have spent countless hours studying course architecture reading about the roots of the game in my spare time. The truth is that technological innovations have always been a big part of golf. Equipment manufacturers are constantly experimenting with new materials or borrowing design cues from the aerospace industry to build clubs, balls and shafts that perform better than the previous generation. 
       
      Technology has always enhanced golf and we made sure we created a technology that doesn't get in the way of golf. Arccos adds to the experience, culture and history of the game.
       
      The one piece of technology that has been missing from golf until now is the “data revolution.” People want to be able to record their golf life. If you play a round at St. Andrews or Pebble Beach or another world-class establishment you will want to remember exactly how you played each hole. With Arccos we ensure that those memories are with you forever. Our system is only enhancing the experience.
