The front surface 164 may include one or more grooves 168 extending between the toe portion 140 and the heel portion 150. Although the figure shows a particular number of grooves, the devices, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein may include more or fewer grooves. The face portion 162 may be used to give an impact to a golf ball (not shown). The face part 162 may be an integral part of the body part 110. Alternatively, the face portion 162 may be a separate component and may be manufactured in a variety of manufacturing methods and / or processes (eg, bonding process, welding process, brazing process, mechanical locking method, any combination thereof, or other suitable It may also be an insert that is coupled to the body part 110 through any type of manufacturing method and / or process). The face portion 162 may be associated with a loft surface that defines the loft angle of the golf club head 100. The loft angle may vary depending on the type of golf club (eg, long iron, middle iron, short iron, wedge, etc.). In one example, the loft angle may be between 5 degrees and 75 degrees. In another example, the loft angle may be between 25 degrees and 60 degrees. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  As shown in FIG. 14, the back portion 170 generally includes a first set of external weight ports 1420 (eg, shown as weight ports 1421, 1422, 1423, and 1424) and a second set of external weight ports 1430 (eg, A backwall portion 1410 having one or more external weight ports along the periphery of the back portion 170, shown as weight ports 1431, 1432, 1433, 1434, 1435, 1436, and 1437, may be included. Each external weight port may be associated with a port diameter. In one example, the port diameter may be about 0.25 inches (6.35 millimeters). Any two adjacent external weight ports of the first set of external weight ports 1420 may be separated smaller than the port diameter. Similarly, any two adjacent external ports of the second set of external weight ports 1430 may be separated smaller than the port diameter. The first and second sets of external weight ports 1420, 1430 may be external weight ports configured to receive one or more weight portions. Specifically, each weight portion (eg, shown as weight portions 121, 122, 123, and 124) of the first set 120 is a weight port in the top portion 180 of the toe portion 140 and / or the back portion 170. It may be arranged, or may be arranged in a weight port in the vicinity thereof. For example, the weight portion 121 may be disposed in the weight port 1421 partially or completely. In another example, the weight portion 122 may be disposed in the weight port 1422 in the transition region (for example, the top-and-toe transition region) between the top portion 180 and the toe portion 140. Each weight portion (eg, shown as weight portions 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, and 137) of the second set 130 is a weight port in the sole portion 190 of the toe portion 140 and / or the back portion 170. It may be arranged at a weight port in the vicinity thereof. For example, the weight portion 135 may be partially or completely disposed at the weight port 1435. In another example, the weight portion 136 may be disposed in the weight port 1436 in the transition region (for example, the sole and toe transition region) of the sole portion 190 and the toe portion 140. As will be described in detail below, the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 may each have various manufacturing methods and / or processes (eg, bonding process, welding process, brazing process, mechanical lock). Method, any combination thereof, or any other suitable type of manufacturing method and / or process) may be coupled to the back portion 170 of the body portion 110.

  Alternatively, the golf club head 100 may include (i) a first set of weight portions 120, (ii) a second set of weight portions 130, or (iii) both first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130. May not be included. Specifically, the back portion 170 of the body portion 110 may not include the weight port in the top portion 170 and / or the sole portion 190, and may not include the weight port in the vicinity thereof. For example, the mass of the first set of weight portions 120 (eg, 3 grams) and / or the mass of the second set of weight portions 130 (eg, 16.8 grams) may be substituted for separate weight portion (s). The body part 110 may be an integral part (s). The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  The first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 may each have similar or different physical characteristics (eg, color, shape, size, density, mass, volume, etc.). As a result, the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 can each contribute to the decorative design of the golf club head 100. In the example illustrated in FIG. 11, each of the weight portions of the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may have a cylindrical shape (for example, a circular cross section). Alternatively, each of the weight portions of the first set 120 may have a first shape (eg, a cylindrical shape), while each of the weight portions of the second set 130 may have a second shape (eg, a cubic shape). It can be. In other examples, the first set of weight portions 120 may include two or more weight portions of different shapes (eg, the weight portion 121 may be a first shape while the weight portion 122 is a first shape). It can be a second shape different from the shape). Similarly, the second set of weight portions 130 may also include two or more weight portions of different shapes (eg, the weight portion 131 may be the first shape while the weight portion 132 is the first shape). Can be different second shapes). While the above example describes a weight portion having a particular shape, the devices, methods, and products described herein may be other suitable shapes (eg, part or all of a sphere, a cube, Cone, cylinder, pyramid, frustum, cube, prism, frustum, or other suitable geometric shape). Although the above examples and figures show a plurality of weight parts as a set of weight parts, each set of the weight parts 120 and 130 of the first and second sets may be a single weight part. Good. In one example, the first set of weight portions 120 may be a single weight portion rather than a sequence of four separate weight portions. In another example, the second set of weight portions 130 may be a single weight portion rather than a series of seven separate weight portions. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Referring to FIGS. 12 and 13, for example, the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 are respectively shown as weight ports of the back portion 170, generally indicated as 1210 and 1310 (generally indicated as 1420 and 1430 in FIG. 14). A thread that engages correspondingly to the thread formed on each of the fixed weight portions. For example, each of the weight portions of the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may be a screw. The first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may not be easily removable from the back portion 110 with or without a tool, respectively. Alternatively, the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 can respectively replace one or more weight portions of the first and second sets 120 and 130 with relatively heavy or light weight portions, respectively. , May be easily removable (eg, with tools). In another example, the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may be backed with epoxy resin or adhesive so that the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130, respectively, cannot be easily removed. It may be fixed to 170 weight ports. In yet another example, the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 are both epoxy resin and adhesive so that the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130, respectively, cannot be easily removed. Thus, it may be fixed to the weight port of the back portion 170. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  As described above, the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may each have some physical characteristics that are similar, but other physical characteristics may be different. As shown in FIGS. 11-13, for example, each of the weight portions of the first and second sets 120, 130 may each have a diameter 1110 of about 0.25 inches (6.35 millimeters). The first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may have different heights. Specifically, each of the weight portions of the first set 120 may be associated with a first height 1220 (FIG. 12), and each of the weight portions of the second set 130 may be associated with a second height 1320 (FIG. 13). The first height 1220 may be relatively smaller than the second height 1320. In one example, the first height 1220 can be about 0.125 inches (3.175 millimeters) while the second height 1320 can be about 0.3 inches (7.62 millimeters). In another example, the first height 1220 can be about 0.16 inches (4.064 millimeters) while the second height 1320 can be about 0.4 inches (10.16 millimeters). . Alternatively, the first height 1220 may be the second height 1320 or more. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  To provide optimal perimeter weighting for the golf club head 100, the first set of weight portions 120 (eg, weight portions 121, 122, 123, and 124) are configured to balance the weight of the hosel 155. May be. The second set of weight portions 130 (eg, weight portions 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, and 137) may be configured such that the center of gravity of the golf club head 100 is placed at an optimal position. Returning to FIGS. 7-9, for example, the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 may each be disposed away from the back surface 166 of the face portion 162 (eg, not directly coupled to each other). That is, each of the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 and the back surface 166 may be partially or completely separated by the internal cavity 700 of the body portion 110. As shown in FIG. 14, for example, each external weight port of the first and second sets of external weight ports 1420, 1430 has an opening (eg, generally indicated as 720 and 730) and a port wall (eg, generally 725). And 735). The port walls 725 and 735 may be an integral part of the back wall part 1410 (for example, a section of the back wall part 1410). Each of the openings 720 and 730 may be configured to receive weight portions such as weight portions 121 and 135, respectively. The opening 720 may be disposed at one end of the weight port 1421, and the port wall 725 may be disposed at or near the end opposite to the weight port 1421. Similarly, the opening 730 may be disposed at one end of the weight port 1435, and the port wall 735 may be disposed at or near the opposite end of the weight port 1435. Port walls 725 and 735 may be separated from face portion 162 (eg, separated by internal cavity 700). As a result, when the second set of weight portions 130 is separated from the back surface 166, the center of gravity (CG) of the golf club head 100 is made to face the face portion more than when the second set of weight portions 130 are directly coupled to the back surface 166. It can be relatively further away from 162 and can be lowered relatively toward the ground plane (eg, one shown as 1010 in FIG. 10). The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Although the drawings show weight ports having a particular cross-sectional shape, the devices, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein may include weight ports having other suitable cross-sectional shapes. In one example, the weight ports of the first and / or second set of weight ports 1420, 1430 may have a U-shaped cross-sectional shape. In another example, the weight ports of the first and / or second set of weight ports 1420, 1430 may have a V-shaped cross-sectional shape. The one or more weight ports associated with the first set of weight portions 120 may have a different cross-sectional shape than the one or more weight ports associated with the second set of weight portions 130. For example, the weight port 1421 can have a U-shaped cross-sectional shape, while the weight port 1435 can have a V-shaped cross-sectional shape. Also, the two or more weight ports associated with the first set of weight portions 120 may have different cross-sectional shapes. Similarly, two or more weight ports associated with the second set of weight portions 130 may have different cross-sectional shapes. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Referring back to FIG. 10, for example, the golf club head 100 may be associated with a ground plane 1010, a horizontal midplane 1020, and a top plane 1030. Specifically, the ground surface 1010 is a surface that contacts the sole portion 190 of the golf club head 100 when the golf club head 100 is in an address position (for example, the golf club head 100 is adjusted for hitting a golf ball). It may be. The top surface 1030 may be a surface that contacts the top portion 180 of the golf club head 100 when the golf club head is in the address position. The ground surface 1010 and the top surface 1030 may each be substantially parallel to each other. The horizontal central plane 1020 may be the middle in the vertical direction between each of the ground plane 1010 and the top plane 1030.

  The first and second sets of weight portions 120, 1300 may each have similar mass (eg, all of the weight portions of the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 are substantially the same weight). There is) Alternatively, the weight parts 120 and 130 of the first and second sets may have different masses, respectively, or may have different masses as a whole set. Specifically, each of the weight portions (eg, shown as 121, 122, 123, and 124) of the first set 120 is an arbitrary weight portion (eg, 131, 132, 133, 134) of the second set 130. , 135, 135, and 137). For example, the second set of weight portions 130 may occupy 50% or more of the total mass by the external weight portions of the golf club head 100. As a result, the golf club head 100 can be configured to have at least 50% of the total mass by an external weight portion disposed below the horizontal central plane 1020. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  In one example, the golf club head 100 may have a mass in the range of about 220 grams to about 330 grams based on the type of golf club (e.g., 4 iron vs. lob wedge). Body portion 110 includes a first and second set of weight portions 120, 130 each having a mass of about 20 grams (eg, the total mass due to the external weight portion), with a mass in the range of about 200 grams to about 310 grams. You may have. Each of the weight portions of the first set 120 may have a mass of about 1 gram (1.0 g), while each of the weight portions of the second set 130 may have a mass of about 2.4 grams. . The total mass of the first set of weights 120 can be about 3 grams, while the total mass of the second set of weights 130 can be about 16.8 grams. The total mass of the second set of weight portions 130 may be five times as heavy as the total mass of the first set of weight portions 120 (eg, about 3 grams of the first set of weight portions). About 16.8 grams of the second set of weights 130 for a total mass of 120). The golf club head 100 may have a total mass of 19.8 grams due to each of the first and second sets of weights 120, 130 (eg, 3 grams and second due to the first set of weights 120). 16.8 grams total due to set weight portion 130). Accordingly, the first set of weight portions 120 may occupy about 15% of the total mass by the external weight portion of the golf club head 100, while the second set of weight portions 130 is the external weight of the golf club head 100. The portion can occupy about 85% of the total mass. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  By joining the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 to the body portion 110 (for example, fixing the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 to the weight ports of the back portion 170), the golf club The position of the center of gravity (CG) and the moment of inertia (MOI) of the head 100 may be optimized. Specifically, the weight portions 120 and 130 of the first and second sets may each be lowered in the position of the CG toward the sole portion 190, and may be separated further rearward from the face portion 162. Further, the MOI may have a higher measurement on a vertical axis (eg, perpendicular to the ground plane 1010) that extends through the CG. The MOI may also have a higher measurement on a horizontal axis that extends through the CG (eg, extends toward each of the toe portion 150 and the heel portion 160 of the golf club head). As a result, the club head 100 can provide a relatively high launch angle and a relatively low spin rate than the golf club head excluding each of the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Alternatively, two or more weight portions in the same set may have different masses. In one example, the weight portion 121 of the first set 120 may have a relatively smaller mass than the weight portion 122 of the first set 120. In another example, the weight part 131 of the second set 130 may have a relatively smaller mass than the weight part 135 of the second set 130. A relatively large mass in the top and toe transition region and / or sole and toe transition region increases the weight and increases the moment of inertia (MOI) of the vertical axis through the center of gravity (CG) Thus, it can be dispersed from the CG of the golf club head 100.

  Although the weight portions are shown as separate individual parts in the figure, each set of the weight portions 120 and 130 of the first and second sets may be a single weight portion. In one example, all weight portions of the first set 120 (eg, shown as 121, 122, 123, and 124) may be combined into a single weight portion (eg, the first weight portion). Similarly, all weight portions (eg, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, and 137) of the second set 130 are also combined into a single weight portion (eg, the second weight portion). Also good. In this example, the golf club head 100 may have only two weight portions. Although a particular number of weights are shown in the figure, the devices, methods, and products described herein may have a greater number of weights and a smaller number of weights. Also good. In one example, the first set of weight portions 120 may have two separate weight portions instead of the three separate weight portions shown in the figure. In another example, the second set of weight portions 130 may have five separate weight portions instead of the seven separate weight portions shown in the figure. Alternatively, the devices, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein may not have any separate weight portions (eg, body portion 110 is an integral part of body portion 110 ( May be manufactured to include the mass of separate weight portions). The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

Referring back to FIGS. 7-9, for example, the body portion 110 may be a hollow body that includes an internal cavity 700 that extends between the front portion 160 and the back portion 170. Further, the internal cavity 700 may extend between the top portion 180 and the sole portion 190. The internal cavity 700 may be associated with a cavity height 750 (H C ), and the body portion 110 may be associated with a body height 850 (H B ). The cavity height 750 and the body height 850 may vary between the toe portion 140 and the heel portion 150, but the cavity height 750 may be at least 50% of the body height 850 (H C > 0.5 * H B ). For example, the cavity height 750 may vary between 70-85% of the body height 850. By making the cavity height 750 of the internal cavity 700 greater than 50% of the body height 850, the golf club 100 has a cavity smaller than 50% of the body height when the golf club 100 hits a golf ball through the face portion 162. A relatively more consistent feel, sound and / or result can be produced than a high golf club. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  In one example, the internal cavity 700 may be unfilled (eg, empty space). Body portion 100 that includes internal cavity 700 may weigh about 100 grams less than body portion 100 that does not include internal cavity 700. Alternatively, the internal cavity 700 may be an elastic polymer or elastomeric material (e.g., a viscoelastic urethane polymer material such as Sorbothane (R) from Sorbotane, Kent, Ohio), a thermoplastic elastomer material (TPE), a thermoplastic polyurethane. It may be partially or fully filled with material (TPU) and / or other suitable types of materials that absorb shocks, isolate vibrations, and / or attenuate noise. For example, at least 50% of the internal cavity 700 is filled with a TPE material that absorbs shock, isolates vibrations, and / or attenuates noise when the golf club head 100 strikes a golf ball through the face 162. May be. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

Returning to FIG. 15, for example, the face portion 162 may include a first thickness 1510 (T 1 ) and a second thickness 1520 (T 2 ). The first thickness 1510 may be the thickness of the section of the face portion 162 adjacent to the groove 168, while the second thickness 1520 may be the thickness of the section of the face portion 162 below the groove 168. For example, the first thickness 1510 may be the maximum distance between the front surface 164 and the back surface 166. The second thickness 1520 may be based on the groove 162. Specifically, the groove 168 may have a groove depth 1525 (D groove ). The second thickness 1520 may be the maximum distance between the bottom surface of the groove 168 and the back surface 166. The sum of the second thickness 1520 and the groove depth 1525 may be substantially equal to the first thickness 1510 (eg, T 2 + D groove = T 1 ). Accordingly, the second thickness 1520 may be smaller than the first thickness 1510 (eg, T 2 <T 1 ).

In order to lower the center of gravity of the golf club head 100 and / or move it further backward, the weight of the front portion 160 of the golf club head 100 may be removed by using a relatively thin face portion 162. For example, the first thickness 1510 may be about 0.075 inches (eg, T 1 = 0.075 inches). By receiving the support of the back wall portion 1410 to form an internal cavity 700 and filling at least a portion of the internal cavity 700 with an elastic polymer material, the face portion 162 can be used for structural integrity, sound, And / or can be relatively thin (eg, T 1 <0.075 inches) without degrading the feel. In one example, the first thickness 1510 may be 0.060 inches (1.524 centimeters) or less (eg, T 1 ≦ 0.060 inches). In other examples, the first thickness 1510 may be 0.040 inches (1.016 millimeters) or less (eg, T 1 ≦ 0.040 inches). Based on the type of material (s) used to form face portion 162 and / or body portion 110, face portion 162 may have a first thickness 1510 (e.g., 0.030 inches or less) (e.g., (T 1 ≦ 0.030 inch). The groove depth 1525 may be the second thickness 1520 or more (for example, D groove ≧ T 2 ). In one example, the groove depth 1525 may be about 0.020 inches (eg, D groove = 0.020 inches). Accordingly, the second thickness 1520 may be about 0.010 inches (eg, T 2 = 0.010 inches). In other examples, the groove depth 1525 may be about 0.015 inches (0.381 millimeters) and the second thickness 1520 may be about 0.015 inches (eg, D groove). = T 2 = 0.015 inch). Alternatively, the groove depth 1525 may be smaller than the second thickness 1520 (for example, D groove <T 2 ). Without the support of the backwall portion 1410 and the internal cavity 700 filled with an elastic polymer material, the golf club head may not be able to withstand multiple impacts by the golf ball at the face portion. In contrast to the golf club head 100 described herein, a golf club head (e.g., a cavity having a relatively thin face portion but no elastic polymer material fill in the support of the back wall portion 1410 and the internal cavity 700). The back golf club head) may produce an unpleasant sound (eg, a cheesy sound) and / or feel upon impact of the golf ball. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

Based on the manufacturing process and method of forming the golf club head 100, the face portion 162 may include additional materials around or near the face portion 162. Accordingly, the face portion 162 may also have a third thickness 1530 and a chamfered portion 1540. The third thickness 1530 may be greater than either the first thickness 1510 or the second thickness 1520 (eg, T 3 > T 1 > T 2 ). Specifically, the face portion 162 may be coupled to the body portion 110 by a welding process. For example, the first thickness 1510 may be about 0.030 inches (0.762 millimeters), the second thickness 1520 may be about 0.015 inches (0.381 millimeters), The third thickness 1530 may be about 0.050 inch (1.27 millimeters). Accordingly, the chamfered portion 1540 can accommodate a portion of the additional material when the face portion 162 is welded to the body portion 110.

As shown in FIG. 16, for example, the face portion 162 may include a reinforcement section, indicated generally at 1605, under one or more grooves 168. In one example, the face portion 162 may include a reinforcing section 1605 under each groove. Alternatively, the face portion 162 may include a reinforcing section 1605 under several grooves (eg, all other grooves) or one groove. The face portion 162 may include a first thickness 1610, a second thickness 1620, a third thickness 1630, and a chamfered portion 1640. The groove 168 may have a groove depth 1625. The reinforcing section 168 may define a second thickness 1620. The first thickness 1610 and the second thickness 1620 may each be substantially equal to each other (eg, T 1 = T 2 ). In one example, the first thickness 1610 and the second thickness 1620 may each be about 0.030 inches (eg, T 1 = T 2 = 0.030 inches). The groove depth 1625 may be about 0.015 inches (0.0381 millimeters) and the third thickness 1630 may be about 0.050 inches (1.27 millimeters). The groove 168 may also have a groove width. The width of the reinforcing section 1605 may be equal to or greater than the groove width. The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Alternatively, the thickness of the face portion 162 may vary between the top portion 180 and the sole portion 190, and / or the thickness may vary therebetween. In one example, the face portion 162 may be relatively thicker at or near the top portion 180 than at or near the sole portion 190 (eg, the thickness of the face portion 162 is from the top portion 180 toward the sole portion 190). May be gradually reduced). In another example, the face portion 162 may be thicker at the sole portion 190 or the vicinity thereof than at the top portion 180 or the vicinity thereof (for example, the thickness of the face portion 162 is from the sole portion 190 to the top portion 189). You may gradually decrease towards). In another example, the face portion 162 may be relatively thicker between the top portion 180 and the sole portion 190 than the top portion 180 and the sole portion 190 or the vicinity thereof (for example, the thickness of the face portion 162 is , May have a bell-shaped outer shape). The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Unlike other golf club head designs, the positions of the internal cavity 700 of the body portion 110 and the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 along the periphery of the golf club head 100 are different from the face portion 162. A relatively high launch angle and a relatively low spin rate can be provided for a golf ball that is moving away. As a result, the golf ball can move far (ie, the total distance including the carry and roll distances increases).

  FIG. 17 is a diagram illustrating one method of manufacturing the example golf club head described herein. In the example of FIG. 17, process 1700 may begin by providing two or more weight portions, generally shown as first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130, respectively (block 1710). The first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may each be made of a first material such as a tungsten-based material. In one example, the first and second sets of weight portions 120 and 130 may each be a tungsten alloy screw.

  Process 1700 may provide a body portion 110 having a face portion 162, an internal cavity 700, and a back portion 170 having two or more external weight ports, generally shown as 1420 and 1430 (block 1720). The body part 110 may be made of a second material different from the first material. Body portion 110 may be manufactured using an investment casting process, a billet forging process, a pressing process, a computer numerical control (CNC) machine process, a die casting process, any combination thereof, or other suitable manufacturing process. . In one example, body portion 110 may be made of 17-4PH stainless steel using a casting process. In another example, body portion 110 is manufactured from other suitable types of stainless steel (eg, Nitronic 50 stainless steel from AK Steel, Inc., Westchester, Ohio) using a forging process. Also good. By using Nitronic® 50 stainless steel to manufacture the body portion 110, the golf club head 100 is relatively more robust and / or more corrosion resistant than golf club heads made from other types of steel. Can increase the sex. Each weight port of the body portion 110 may include an opening and a port wall. For example, the weight port 1421 may include an opening 720 and a port wall 725 provided at both ends facing each other. The internal cavity 700 may separate the port wall 725 of the weight port 1421 and the back surface 166 of the face portion 162. Similarly, the weight port 1835 may include an opening 730 and a port wall 735 provided at both ends facing each other. The internal cavity 700 may separate the port wall 735 of the weight port 1435 and the back surface 166 of the face portion 162.

  Process 1700 may couple each of the first and second sets of weight portions 120, 130 to one of two or more external weight ports (block 1730). In one example, the process 1700 may insert and secure the weight portion 121 in the external weight port 1421 and insert and secure the weight portion 135 in the external weight port 1435. In one example, the process 1700 may insert and secure the weight portion 121 in the external weight port 1421 and insert and secure the weight portion 135 in the external weight port 1435.

  Process 1700 may partially or completely fill internal cavity 700 with an elastic polymeric material (eg, Sorbothane® material) (block 1740). In one example, at least 50% of the internal cavity 700 may be filled with an elastic polymer material. As described above, the elastic polymer material can absorb shocks, isolate vibrations, and / or attenuate noise in response to the golf club head 100 hitting the golf ball. Alternatively, the internal cavity 700 may be filled with a thermoplastic elastomer material and / or a thermoplastic polyurethane material. As shown in FIG. 18, for example, the golf club head 100 may include one or more weight ports (eg, shown as 1431 in FIG. 14) having a first opening 1830 and a second opening 1835. The second opening 1835 may be used to access the internal cavity 700. In one example, the process 1700 (FIG. 17) may fill the internal cavity 700 with the elastic polymer material by injecting the elastic polymer material into the internal cavity 700 from the first opening 1835 through the second opening 1835. Good. The first opening 1830 and the second opening 1835 may have the same or different sizes and / or shapes, respectively. While the above example has been described with a specific weight port having a second opening, any other weight port of the golf club head 100 may include the second opening (eg, weight port 720). The instruments, methods, and articles of manufacture described herein are not so limited.

  Referring back to FIG. 17, the example process 1700 simply provides and describes one example method of manufacturing the golf club head 100 in conjunction with the other figures. Although a specific sequence of actions is shown in FIG. 17, these actions may be performed in other order over time. For example, two or more actions shown in FIG. 17 may be executed sequentially, simultaneously, or simultaneously. In one example, blocks 1710, 1720, 1730, and / or 1740 may be performed simultaneously or simultaneously. Although FIG. 17 shows a specific number of blocks, the process may not execute one or more blocks. In one example, the internal cavity 700 may not be filled (eg, block 1740 may not be performed).
