FAQ: Inventors/Equipment Companies
Nobody makes money on nonconforming equipment. Why should I bother with it?
We want you to help you make money on nonconforming equipment. Flogton players will lower their scores and have more fun with equipment that lets them hit the ball farther and straighter, spin it onto the green and putt it more accurately and consistently. Let's give them the tools.
I'd like to get to work on an equipment improvement. How can the AGA help me?
See the equipment section of the site for an outline of what exists now and what could be developed in the future. We're providing a forum for discussion, with all ideas welcome.
My company makes USGA-approved equipment. Won't Flogton take away my business?
Flogton could expose more people to golf, encourage more people to practice for golf, and groom more people to adopt the USGA game. And Flogton players who already play USGA golf probably will use most of their equipment for both games. Golf has been around for hundreds of years and it's not going away.
I've already invented something I think is much better than the equipment on the market. What do I do now?
We'd like to test nonconforming patents and products. We are working on a system to pay for inventions that we can share with others to encourage innovation. But first, please file a patent application with the USPTO. The lowest cost and simplest option is filing a provisional patent. For more information, please see USPTO.gov or go to legalzoom.com.
