Moving into the Spring, we've made some key hires to round out our team.
Our very first full-time addition to the team is Parker Feldmann.
As VP of Manufacturing at Graff, Parker is going to lead all manufacturing efforts and take full control of supply chain logistics which is one of the most important components of creating a state-of-the-art smart golf ball.
We've also rounded out our software team with the additions of Ryan Hubley & Mark Tran. Ryan's a 5th year senior at JHU with a degree in Computer Science who's now pursuing a degree in Financial Math and Mark is a rising sophomore at Stanford majoring in Computer Science. These additions will speed up our development processes immensely.
Parker Feldmann has made massive strides on the hardware front in the past month. Some big milestones are:
- PCB completely rearranged
- New layer configuration based on team decision and current mfg
- New dimple design to match more closely with Pro V1 style
- Added Graff Logo to the ball and PCB
The rendering above shows how our PCB is encapsulated inside the golf ball. Pretty awesome stuff! More updates to come very soon.
