Thank you for your kindness and words of advice.
You're saying that you want to work in golf club engineering, right? As in, designing clubs and golf balls for Titleist/Nike/TaylorMade.
You'd likely be getting a mechanical engineering degree. Engineering design and materials engineering are probably two good places to focus on. Learn CAD programs. Gain experience. Show good spelling and grammar.
Check out Titleist's (or TaylorMade's, Callaway's, etc.) employment website and read the job description and requirements.
Just remember, there aren't a ton of jobs in that exact
field. There aren't a huge number of OEM golf companies.
I'm a senior in mechanical engineering at the moment. Starting salaries for recent grads vary wildly by engineering subset, geographic location, the school you went to, and your particular skill set and background. The numbers they usually quote us for average starting salary for a recent graduate mechanical engineer is about $66,000-$69,000 per year. Again, that can be higher or lower based on cost of living in your area.
And recognize that engineering majors aren't great for playing varsity sports. They're both a lot of work
