Dream collaborations between golf companies


Recommended Posts

In recent news, the parent company of Bushnell bought Foresight. The co-branded launch monitor (GC3/Launch Pro) is obviously the first fruit of this partnership. But it's not hard to see further opportunity there. The most recent Precision Pro rangefinder allows you to input your LM parameters for each club, so that the rangefinder can suggest a club. I have to think that some future Bushnell product would do this automatically, given the relationship between the companies.

So that got me thinking: what other golf companies, if they worked together, could produce a dream product? Here's mine:

I want one of the major stat tracker products (Arccos, Shot Scope) to partner with one of the consumer-grade LMs (SkyTrak, Mevo/Mevo+, Rapsodo). Imagine this: you collect stats for several rounds, and then your LM creates a custom practice plan for you based on your actual strokes gained weaknesses on the course. To be sure, this wouldn't be the same as having a swing coach to fix the problem, but it would have you focus on the correct places for your swing practice.

What collaborations do you think would produce some really effective golf products?

Not really a collaboration but if GC Quad would allow you to tag data more thoroughly with club head, loft, setting on hosel, shaft, weight, flex and more there is no reason if they didn't collect all this data they could have the best fitting engine in no time given how many fitters use it. Of course fitters would not want this, but given that you could hit say 10 shots and given your club delivery parameters could easily find a product that gives golfers with similar delivery options to that better fit their game. To make it a collab lets say a larger club fitter might be interested and heck if they got general users to tag the data use that too. Again not sure they would want to do this, but sounds interesting.

i don't have any real input other than this is an awesome idea.

I have never used it but a VR like oculus to collaborate with a Golf simulator. Can walk courses we could only dream of getting on with the same good information your typical LM provides.

Callaway and Taylormade join forces to create an AI-engineered Flash Twist Face with Jailbreak Velocity Blades!  🤣

I wouldn't mind SuperSpeed Golf bringing on Mike Carroll (Fit for Golf) to play a role in their speed training protocol development.  Word is this might actually be happening...

I was thinking the same thing as I asked my question in the AMA seems like a good fit to help match what the Rypstick and Stack are offering

The current ones work just fine but I’d love to swing a Mizuno forged Vokey wedge.

I believe that makes a lot of sense.  I would be very surprised if a company like Garmin doesn't buy a stat tracking company like Arccos and also combines that with a higher end LM company acquisition.  

Their Garmin watches would be a natural fit (to replace the Link) for Arccos and the combined company's data on individual golfers could be used with their existing low grade LM and a more higher end LM (Sky Trak or Trackman).  In addition, I think Garmin could use its heart rate monitors to analyze how a golfers heart rate is during putting to provide even better training data for high end golfers (pros and amateurs).  Right now it looks like these pro golfers use other fitness monitors instead, but Garmin could easily be the dominant all sorts of data provider for golfers.

I would like to see PXG work with Nike in bringing back a limited edition Nike line of clubs. With all the techy PXG goodness and how much I enjoyed Nike clubs in the past it would great to see a rebirth and maybe a true form of the leaked Nike driver that never came to be.

I like  the DEcADE approach to playing golf.  While some of the new features in DECADE are getting there, imagine being able to input the pin location and have your GPS/rangefinder/Caddie feature give you the DECADE target based on where you are on the course and help with the environmental calculations.  Additionally, I don’t get pin sheets or know all of the green complexes for every course I play so you could even enter the DECADE number based on where you are and have the it display the target.  It would then enable you to see target lines to help you setup

Wondering if something like this might not be in the works with Lou Stagner partnering with Arccos.

I would bet Scott Fawcett would look to upgrade and improve the DECADE app more than partner with another entity.

If you're a DECADEr, you know he recently pushed a major upgrade to the app called "Driving Targets" where it basically draws the tee shot for you as an overlay on a GPS shot of the hole, so he's already tinkering with moving from teaching you how to pick correct targets to actually doing it for you...

Yeah, this is a really fine line. I don't think for a moment that Lou would compromise anything of Scott Fawcett's IP. But the idea of taking your shot distribution and using it to choose a target can't really be considered proprietary, can it?

Your particular distribution no.  But the application of DECADE target is more than your shot patterns, that is probably IP.
