  • 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: 20210138319
    Abstract: A golf club head includes a body having an outer surface with a recessed channel formed therein. A weight assembly that includes a weight at least partially disposed within the recessed channel, a cover extending over the recessed channel, and a fastener coupling the cover to the body. The fastener is adapted to retain the weight in the recessed channel only indirectly by the cover. The weight assembly is selectively positionable between at least three configurations: a first configuration where the weight is secured within the recessed channel; a second configuration where the weight is slidable within the recessed channel; and a third configuration where the weight is completely removable from the golf club head. The cover is coupled to the body in all three configurations.

  • Patent number: 10695628
    Abstract: A golf club head includes a body having an outer surface with a recessed channel formed therein. A weight assembly that includes a weight at least partially disposed within the recessed channel, a cover extending over the recessed channel, and a fastener coupling the cover to the body. The fastener is adapted to retain the weight in the recessed channel only indirectly by the cover. The weight assembly is positionable in an unlocked configuration and a locked configuration. When the weight assembly is in the unlocked configuration, the cover is lifted out of the recessed channel and the weight is selectively slidable within the recessed channel. When the weight assembly is in the locked configuration, the cover is disposed within the recessed channel and the weight is secured within the recessed channel. The weight assembly is coupled to the body in both the unlocked configuration and the locked configuration.
