LA Golf Shafts Appoints Former Aldila Head of Engineering John Oldenburg Chief Product Officer

LA Golf Shafts Release The Shackles On Oldenburg’s Creativity and Innovation To Design Performance-Driven Shafts For Tour Pros and Amateurs

LOS ANGELES, CA – LA Golf Shafts, the new business venture spawned by Southern California-based LA Golf Partners, appointed renowned product designer and shaft guru, John Oldenburg to Chief Product Officer.

Oldenburg spent 20 years as the head of Aldila engineering and product development and brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise that will propel LA Golf Shafts to the forefront of the golf shaft industry. One of the games’ true shaft innovators, Oldenburg brings two decades of experience in designing shafts for golf’s best players, including the winners of 25 Major Championships and hundreds of professional tour events worldwide.

“Throughout my shaft design career, I often felt true shaft innovation has been restricted by the economic realities of doing business in golf’s OEM world. Since we are truly player driven and oriented to the aftermarket, I have new and unprecedented freedom to pursue truly unique, innovative and state of the art concepts in golf shaft design,” said Oldenburg. “The freedom to select and incorporate advanced and exotic materials based solely on technical and performance criteria rather than purely economic considerations significantly expands our design window and heightens my team’s ability to design and innovate groundbreaking products. Having these design shackles taken off is great for me, but the true winners will be our partners and the recreational players who end up with our innovative new shafts in their bags. Producing all our products here in the USA is another huge plus.”

Oldenburg continued, “The confidence of knowing I can walk out of my office and go onto the production floor to directly oversee bringing our ideas to life was the icing on the cake for me. It is a huge competitive advantage for us that all of the material sourcing, prototyping, manufacturing and testing is happening here in the US with a dedicated and talented workforce that has decades of experience creating prototypes.”

A graduate of the University of Illinois School of Engineering with a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Engineering/Technical Management, Oldenburg earned the nickname “shaft guru” by his peers. With performance and technological advancements at the forefront of the LA Golf Shafts movement, Oldenburg’s background will be the driving force to bringing this vision to fruition.

LA Golf Shafts was established to create a golf equipment company unlike any other in the sport, one where the ownership group includes professional athletes from the world’s top professional tours. The company’s mission is to bring the player/owner signature series products to golfers at every level through a commitment to producing authentic tour validated products, designed and made in the USA with American sourced materials.
