Saksun applied his manufacturing expertise to the golf world in the mid-1970s. He founded Accuform Golf in 1975, which designed and manufactured golf club heads. Saksun also invented the cylindrical-shaped bunker rakes found at most PGA Tour courses and around the world. At the company's peak, Davis Love III, Joey Sindelar, Gary Koch, Mike Donald, Dan Halldorson, Jerry Anderson, Jim Rutledge and Dick Zokol played Accuform clubs. The company was sold to former Labatt president Don MacDougall in the early 1990s. In 1990, Saksun was utilized by the United States Golf Association (USGA) to help solve a controversy regarding the use of square, or U-grooves, in PING's immensely popular PING Eye2 irons. The United States Golf Association argued that players who used the Eye2 had an unfair advantage in imparting spin on the ball, which helps to stop the ball on putting greens. Saksun set up methods of measuring the unique grooves and determined that PING was in compliance with the rulings. However, by proposing a cost-effective solution to help PING change the design of subsequent Eye2s, Saksun saved PING hundreds of millions. PING subsequently withdrew their US$100 million lawsuit against the United States Golf Association.
