  • Patent number: 7250007
    Abstract: A golf club head includes a striking plate, a golf club head body and a plurality of annular flexible portions. In assembling, the striking plate mechanically connects to a front side of the golf club head body. The golf club head body forms a crown portion, a sole portion, a toe portion, a heel portion and a side portion to constitute a body member. The annular flexible portions are provided on an inner surface of the golf club head body. Thereby, the annular flexible portions can increase an elastic deformation of the golf club head body.

  • Patent number: 6780124
    Abstract: A golf club head includes a golf club head body and a striking plate. The golf club head body has an opening on a front side thereof, with a flange being formed on the front side and extending along an outer peripheral edge defining the opening. A plurality of engaging notches are defined in the flange. The striking plate has a plurality of supporting rods. Each supporting rod is engaged in an associated one of the engaging notches when the striking plate is inserted into the opening of the golf club head body to thereby support the striking plate and to thereby position the striking plate in the opening of the golf club head body before high energy welding.

  • Publication number: 20040043831
    Abstract: The present invention provides a striking plate having an outer surface and an inner surface. The outer surface serves as a striking face formed with a plurality of grooves, and the inner surface is a highly-polished face with a surface roughness below 6.3 &mgr;m so as to eliminate surface defects that may otherwise cause contraction of impact stress. The striking plate can be integrated with a sole plate and a crown plate into a golf club head.
