For the Love of Golf & Fashion
Motherputter is a woman-owned business powered by women who love golf and fashion and have a history in both industries. We know women can give any man a run for his money on the golf course. We also know what it takes to feel powerful and confident with every swing. We live our tagline – Feminine is Fierce. This isn’t just about us – it’s about ALL of us.
From Frumpy to Edgy
Do you find it nearly impossible to find attractive, feminine, comfortable golf attire that moves with every swing and reflects your unique Golf Goddess style?
At Motherputter, we’ve taken women’s golf wear from frumpy to edgy, from plain to sassy, from stodgy to whimsical, and added wearability.
Meet the Chicks In Charge
Kim Tuttle – Chief Chick of Fashion
At an early age, Kim had an independent streak, not just in clothing choices but also in mindset. With a style uniquely her own, the passion for fashion landed her a degree in Fashion Merchandising from Texas Tech University. She followed her dream to the Dallas Apparel Mart and ultimately to fashion mecca, the New York City Garment District.
After a long, self-imposed hiatus from fashion and a crazy 20-year detour into the world of politics and policy, Kim has circled back to her first love. Discovering the game of golf along the way, obsessively some might say, the need for a fashion infusion into this arena became painfully apparent.
Long on drive, (pun intended) this big hitter assembled a killer team and set about creating a company that is changing the face and attitude of women’s golf. In addition to making game changing golf clothes, this badass foursome is committed to empowering women on and off the course. There is no better sisterhood, than your fellow golf goddesses. Motherputter is us… it is all of us.
Kari Schindehette – Chief Chick of Fierce
Inspired by strong-minded, talented women who could literally do anything they set their mind to, Kari’s independent spirit was established early on. She has always been the Chief Chick of Fierce!
Kari dominated in industrial sales in the nearly all-male world of commercial lighting for over 10 years. Golf became an important strategy for building relationships and she happened to be pretty darn good at it. There is no surprise here, as she has always been a good athlete.
Sports continue to be front and center in her life with her two volleyball-playing teenaged daughters. She is instilling in them the same fiery, think for yourself attitude she learned from her mother. Kari embodies the drive of Motherputter - inspiring women to play hard and embrace the warrior within.
Jacque Bardgett – Chief Chick of Golf
Jacque has never shied away from a challenge. This is a girl who played ice hockey on an all-boys team when she was 8! Eventually she gave up her skates and soccer cleats for golf shoes and never looked back. She took the game by storm, playing on her high school varsity team and going on to play Division One Collegiate golf at the University of Missouri.
Golf has always been a big part of Jacque’s life, in school and beyond. Now as a well-respected political consultant she never misses an opportunity to swing the clubs. These days, she uses her love of the game for charity events and other causes close to her heart.
But getting through all the early morning practices, weekend long tournaments and even caddying for her pro golfer brother were nothing compared to enduring the horrible, ill-fitting style-less clothes she had to wear.
Out of Jacque’s desire to have golf apparel she would actually wear off the course, Motherputter was born. She believes that we all deserve to look as good as we play.
Sara Summers – Chief Chick of Creative Completion
Growing up in a small town did not stop Sara from dreaming big. Inspired by the glossy fashionista world, she pursued her passion, graduating with a degree in Fashion Merchandising from Eastern Illinois University.
With 20-years under her belt as a skillful technical designer, Sara is a seasoned fashion veteran. Her spot-on fashion instincts and impeccable eye for detail make Sara perfectly matched for Motherputter’s irreverent and quirky style.
She brings her own creative flair to the brand and is not afraid to be a free spirit, planting her tongue firmly in her cheek!
