Herringbone Pattern Fans Will Love These Nike Grooves

Will we ever see clubs from Nike Golf with grooves that look like this?

The drawings come from a patent that recently issued as USPN 8,337,324 titled “golf clubs and golf club heads with high contact area groove configurations.” The patent describes the invention as:

Golf club heads for iron-type golf clubs (including 1 through 9 irons, iron-type hybrid clubs, driving irons, and wedges (e.g., pitching wedges, lob wedges, gap wedges, sand wedges, etc.)) include a striking face. The striking face may comprise a plurality of spaced, parallel grooves that extend across at least a portion of the striking face. The grooves may form a herringbone groove pattern. The herringbone groove pattern may include two or more rows of diagonal, parallel grooves slanting in alternate directions to form a series of parallel Vs. The grooves may be rounded. Other possible groove shapes also are described.

Don’t hold your breath waiting to find these in your local Golf Galaxy.
