He has been working in the golf industry since the age of 15 and has been a PGA Class A Member since 1994 and a Golf System Engineering Master (GSEM) since 1991. David began designing golf equipment shortly after graduating from the University of Oregon. After several years working with renowned club maker Henry Griffitts, David formed Edel Golf in 1996.

After the company's initial success in the custom putter market, David used the same customization and fitting philosophies to expand Edel Golf's product offerings to include wedges and irons. David serves as the company's visionary leader, working tirelessly to innovate and develop ground-breaking products that shift the thinking of the golf equipment industry. His extensive club design and engineering expertise allows Edel Golf to continually push the envelope of equipment technology.
