Summary: 

Final Design showing crank, golf club access and outer casingThe Tiffany Terrier was a 4th year mechanical engineering student and varsity athlete at the University of Waterloo.  Tiffany noticed that golf courses around the world have golf ball cleaners located on many of their tee boxes; however, golf club cleaners are rarely ever found. Her golf competition experience revealed a need for an effective on-course golf club cleaner that was as easy to use as existing golf ball cleaners. She noticed that currently available cleaners were ineffective or very expensive.  The goal of Tiffany’s design project was to design a golf club cleaner that was effective, affordable and could be used at golf courses across the world. 

Learning objectives: 

This case study is intended to illustrate the product design process, including a clear problem statement, comparative study of existing solutions, generation of alternatives, choosing the best option using a comprehensive decision matrix, preliminary/detailed design activities, solid modelling, and shaft analysis for shear and bending.
