Club fitting is all the rage, so it is interesting to see what a major club manufacturer may have in store for the future.
Callaway had an interesting patent issue this week that may provide us with a glimpse into what they view as the future of club fitting. The patent is USPN 7281985 titled “Golf Club Head,” and describes the invention as:
The golf club head (20) of the present invention allows for the face angle, lie angle, loft angle and shaft diameter of the golf club to be customized to a golfer. The golf club head (20) of the present invention is able to accomplish this by providing a major body (22) and a minor body (23) having a crown section (24) and hosel section (25). The minor bodies (23) have different hosel section (25) orientations thereby allowing for different face angles, loft angle, lie angles and shaft diameters of the golf club (19).
