Arccos, the GPS-sensor-based stat tracking app that has led the charge to revolutionise how statistics can be a game-changer for average golfers, announced this week that it is looking to provide that same next-level numbers intel for pro golfers.

Front and centre is its new exclusive partnership with Edoardo Molinari, the long-time DP World Tour player, Ryder Cup vice captain and founder of StatisticGolf, one of the leading game analytics services for tour players, including a stable of top stars that have accounted for 27 worldwide wins.

Molinari, who will become Arccos’ chief data strategist and an investor in the company, will incorporate StatisticGolf into the new Arccos division known as Arccos Pro Insights. He spent five years earning an advanced degree in engineering from the Polytechnic University of Turin in Italy, and he provides data analytics services for more than 35 touring professionals, including Matthew Fitzpatrick, Viktor Hovland and Nelly Korda.

It was Molinari’s input on statistics that contributed heavily to the course setup at Marco Simone in Italy, a key element to Team Europe’s victory in the 2023 Ryder Cup. Molinari has once again been named a vice captain for the Europeans for the 2025 Ryder Cup at the Black Course at Bethpage State Park in New York.

Arccos founder and CEO Sal Syed called the partnership between Molinari’s platform and the Arccos database of nearly 900 million shots an opportunity to help aspiring golfers at many levels. “The sophistication of what Edoardo has built surpasses anything that I’ve seen in the field of golf analytics,” Syed said. “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.”

Molinari, the 2005 US Amateur champion and a three-time winner on the DP World Tour who once was ranked as high as No.14 in the world, also will continue to play professionally, using Arccos sensors on his clubs, which recently were approved for use on the PGA Tour.

“I’m very impressed with the Arccos game-tracking system,” said Molinari, who originally launched his StatisticGolf in 2021. “It’s the perfect complement to the platform I’ve built. Joining forces with Sal 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.”
