Titleist's Stephanie Luttrell Combined Her Passion for Golf and Mechanical Engineering
By Carly Grenfell
Editor's Note: Fairway Tales is a PGA of America podcast committed to telling some of the most powerful stories surrounding girls and women in golf. Host Carly Grenfell caught up with Stephanie Luttrell the week of the 2021 Virtual PGA Merchandise Show to learn more about how the Director of Titleist Metalwood Development is moving the game forward.
Way back in 2002, Stephanie Luttrell attended the PGA Merchandise Show with the hope of finding a job in the golf industry. She came from a golf family and played the sport throughout high school and was a walk-on at the University of Michigan.
Luttrell took advantage of the opportunity to make connections with R&Ds and came away with her first job at Callaway. Now, 18 years later she is the Director of Titleist Metalwood Development.
Gifted in both math and science, Stephanie Luttrell ended up pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. The advice from her dad - to find something you love and do it the rest of your life - was always in the back of her mind when deciding on a career path.
Now Luttrell is putting her degree to perfect use and living out her passion every single day. As a golf club guru for Titleist, she plays an integral role in the development of putters, drivers, wedges and other product categories.
Depending on the level of golfer and the many other mechanics of an individual's golf swing, Stephanie Luttrell can craft the perfect club. Her knowledge is deep. Some might even say she has the game of golf down to a science.
