  • Publication number: 20210197041
    Abstract: A golf club head that is capable improving on the inertia properties of a golf club head all while also improving the Center of Gravity (CG) location is disclosed herein. More specifically, the golf club head in accordance with the present invention achieves a relative low Moment of Inertia (MOI) about the Z-axis (MOI-Z) as well as a relatively low MOI about the Shaft-axis (MOI-SA), all combined with a high MOI about the X and Y-axis (MOI-X and MOI-Y) and maintaining a consistently and relatively low CG location measured along a direction tangent to the hosel axis along the X-Y plane (CG-B). The golf club head includes a frontal portion and a rear portion, each including one or more cantilevered extensions and one or more elongate protrusions that collectively constitute a snap fit mechanism adapted to removably couple the frontal portion to the rear portion.

  • Publication number: 20210023424
    Abstract: A golf club head with improved striking face performance is disclosed herein. More specifically, the present invention discloses a golf club head having a striking face portion with a back surface provided with multiple constant thickness zones and multiple transition zones on a back surface of the striking face portion. Preferably, at least three constant thickness zones are provided in the thickened central region of the striking face portion encompassed by an intermediate transition zone and an outer perimeter region encompassing the intermediate transition zone comprising at least four outer perimeter constant thickness zones. Preferably, the thickened central region and the intermediate transition region mimic the shape of the face perimeter of the striking face portion of the golf club head.

  • Patent number: 10525314
    Abstract: A golf club head includes a club head body and a weight member that is secured to the body in a weight mount. The weight member is constructed to utilize lateral forces to couple to the head body to minimize the structure required to retain the weight member. The weight member includes a spring feature that is movably coupled to a weight body so that it is movable between a first configuration and a second configuration. In the second configuration a portion of the spring feature extends outward from a side wall of the weight body. The weight mount includes an undercut and the spring feature extends into the undercut and is partially flexed by the abutment of the spring feature and a perimeter wall of weight mount when the weight member is disposed in the weight mount.
