Description

  The present invention relates generally to golf club heads, and more particularly to a golf club head and a method of manufacturing a golf club head.

  Golf clubs, and specifically golf club heads of various designs, have generally been developed to improve golfer swing functionality and, consequently, golf shots. A common problem that many golfers fall into is the ability to hit the ball, that is, the ability to hit the ball from the front in a regular manner or not consistently. In recent years, golf club designs that optimize the position of the center of gravity of a golf club have become popular among golf club manufacturers in order to eliminate the above-described general problems. By placing the center of gravity towards the bottom of the golf club, this position guides the golfer to hit the ball during the swing, ie hit the ball from the front.

  The manufacture of oversized golf clubs having a relatively large striking face, followed by a relatively large impact area, is another design that has become popular among golf club manufacturers in recent years. These oversized clubs were designed to meet the “mishits” by golfers. Instead of guiding the golfer to hit the ball from the front by optimizing the club's center of gravity position, these oversized clubs have a relatively large sweet spot area to accommodate hitting and hitting the ball. Is used. In this way, as a result of the trajectory of making a mistake and hitting the ball, it reacts as if hitting in front.

  The general trend of golf club manufacturers is to produce irons with an optimized center of gravity and oversized drivers, fairway woods, and utilities. However, golfers, like irons, may benefit from drivers, fairway woods, and utilities where the center of gravity is optimally located, specifically the center of gravity located at the bottom of the club.

  As a result, the center of gravity of these golf club heads can be lowered or further optimized by golf clubs and their manufacturing methods.

  The present specification teaches a golf club head. The golf club head includes a main body. The main body includes a toe end, a heel end opposite to the toe end, a front end, a rear end opposite to the front end, a front face located on the front end, an upper wall, and an opposite side to the upper wall. And a bottom wall located at the bottom. The body has a body height measured from the bottom wall to the top position of the front face in a first direction substantially perpendicular to the bottom wall. The main body has a center of gravity and a center of gravity height measured from the bottom wall to the center of gravity along the center of gravity line in the first direction. The main body has a center-of-gravity ratio composed of the height of the center of gravity relative to the height of the main body. The center of gravity ratio is approximately less than 0.50.
