Why aren’t there more female golf-club engineers?

It’s a question Rose Fielder, director of engineering operations at Ping, has often pondered over the last few years. And, ultimately, it’s one she’s decided to do something about.

Fielder landed two internships at Ping during her college years at the University of Michigan thanks to a connection from a professor, who was collaborating on a research project with the Phoenix, Ariz.-based club manufacturer. After graduating from Michigan, where she played on the women’s golf team, Ping hired Fielder as a project engineer. She’s never worked anywhere else and now manages more than two dozen people in product development and testing. Fielder also oversees Ping’s internship program and is involved in full-time hiring.
