A long time principal engineer for one of the world’s largest petrochemical and nuclear companies, Stephen Boccieri, turned his childhood passion and near-scratch skills playing golf into a solid business.
In 1994, he founded Engineered Golf, which offered R&D services to the golf industry. Stephen was one of the first engineers to analyze the nuances between different golf-club shafts by using dynamic load testing. Then, for more than three years, he combined his scientific aptitude and spirit to innovate with golfers’ biomechanics (human motion) – and the concept and patented technology behind the Heavy Putter was perfected.
The Heavy Putter came to market in January 2005 with the success of over 100 thousand putters sold and 19 PGA wins. Stephen than launched the Heavy Wedges to maximize the golfer’s short game. In 2010 the Control Series Swing clubs were launched that featured the technology of counter balancing which improves the golfer’s consistency, control and distance. The patented Secret Grip was launched in 2013 to help all golfers achieve counter balanced technology on all golf manufacturers swing clubs and putters. The success of the Secret Grip is overwhelming with 26 top ten finishes including 2 number one finishes on the PGA Tour in the 2015. Stephen moved the Boccieri Golf headquarters to Scottsdale Arizona three years ago to establish a State of Art Research and Performance Center where golfers are trained using innovative technologies including K-Vest, Sam Putt Lab and Robo Golf Swing Trainer.
Stephens’s mission is to make better golfers. He is even more passionate about his mission today than ten years ago as he continues to develop new innovative products and lead his team of teaching professional’s Scottsdale. Boccieri is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology where he received his engineering degree.
