Abstract: A golf putting head is formed to include a recess cavity on its front face which preferably includes a raised perimeter bead. The insert is cast in place within the cavity with the perimeter bead allowing the insert to extend slightly beyond the club face. Once cured within the cavity, the insert perimeter bead and club face is finished to remove the perimeter bead and provide a smooth planar surface for the insert and the club face.
