Angela Aulenti named National Clubfitter of the Year by Callaway

STAMFORD, Conn. -- Angela Aulenti, head golf professional at Sterling Farms Golf Course in Stamford, Connecticut and owner of the highly regarded Aulenti Fitting Studio, has been named the National Clubfitter of the Year by leading golf equipment manufacturer Callaway. Aulenti, the first female head professional in Connecticut, combines a reputation as the region's expert clubfitter with her dedicated and superior teaching skills. Her year-round indoor facility provides the most current technology and precise fitting analysis for golfers of all ability levels. Callaway's significant accolade elevates Aulenti as the best in the profession.

"Callaway Golf is extremely honored to announce that Angela Aulenti has been named the 2013 National Clubfitter of the Year," said Rob Chase, Director Strategic Sales. "Angela is one of our highly valued Callaway Master Staff Professionals, a designation which she was given many years ago due to her skills as a golf professional, teacher, clubfitter and her overall golf business acumen. Her students, customers and all of us at Callaway Golf are so privileged to be able to work with such an accomplished leader in the golf industry. Angela is incredibly deserving of this award, not only for the high level of success she had in 2013, but also for all the years she has been a valued member of the Callaway family. We sincerely congratulate Angela for her great accomplishment!"

Aulenti was selected as National Clubfitter of the Year from hundreds of Callaway certified professionals.

"This truly is an exceptional honor for Callaway to have this level of confidence in my clubfitting abilities," said Aulenti. "There are so many fine professionals around the country who fit golfers with the right equipment so they can better enjoy the game. Too many golfers are playing with the wrong clubs and this has a negative impact on their ability to advance and score better. I am very proud to receive this national award and I look forward to continuing to help all golfers improve by using custom fitted clubs."

Aulenti, a PGA and LPGA member, currently is in her third term as president of the LPGA Teaching & Club Professional's Northeast Section. In 2012, she was inducted into the Connecticut Golf Hall of Fame. Aulenti has won numerous awards for her excellent service and commitment to the game, including the 2011 LPGA Professional of the Year. She received the Callaway National Clubfitter of the Year award on November 11th in Palm Springs. Aulenti resides in Fairfield, Connecticut.
